In order to help out our friends from The #1's, we're co-hosting this show next week. It's fairly short notice, so any help getting the word out would be great!
Alumni of many groups (including Facel Vega, The Sceptres, Mock Heroic and No) from the last decade, hailing from around the southern parts of the UK, including Essex, Norwich and South Wales, Satellites make unforgivably loud and dissonant punk that's arresting and inventive, flipping out to occasionally reveal a twisted, dark underbelly. Following a long tradition of outsider hardcore songwriting (cf. Against, Moss Icon and Articles of Faith) their recent cassettes and now 7" single on Milk records has cemented their place as the best punk band in London.

The latest offshoot from Dublin's mighty Crowd Control is The #1's, but unlike the crushing hardcore one may expect, this is definitely a departure. Taking infulence from classic releases from the likes of Good Vibrations and Rip Off Records, this is catchy and memborable pop influcened punk that will leave anyone into the likes of Protex, Starjets or The Tinopeners stoked.

Also hailing from Dublin, and on tour with The #1's, September Girls are an all girl band who play catchy fuzzy garage pop. They put out an impressive demo last year, and although there are a hundred and one bands doing this style right now, the songs definitely stand out.
