Rebellion Punk Festival 2019 recommendation: Spoilers

Seemingly I’m either too uncool or too non-adventurous to go to the Rebellion Punk Festival. But from the comfortable position of sitting on my arse instead, I’ll recommend some stuff for you to go and watch on my behalf, just on the off chance that any of you shit-houses are looking at your phones instead of watching bands and drinking heavily from the fount of overpriced festival beer.

Spoilers, one of my current favourites are playing. They are from darn sarf, mate. And they play some cool UK style classic skate punk in the vein of Guns n’ Wankers meets Lagwagon. They also clearly listen to an unhealthy amount of Snuff. You can read my review of their recent compilation album, Recently Re-Released, which was released by our friends at Little Rocket Records, Brassneck Records, Boss Tuneage, and SBAM. You’ll be able to pick this up on random coloured vinyl from the merch table; ditto their recent full length ‘Roundabouts’ which is available on some funky variants. If they have remembered to bring any with them of course. Which they will have done, because they are good like that.

And a final thought on this one, if you missed The Drowns, The Murderburgers and Incisions over the last couple of days, you are probably a bit stupid or need to get your priorities straight, mate. Which I suppose amounts to the same fucking thing. Either way – look – I can’t do this shit for you. You are there, I’m not.

Peace out.

Tony of Nurgle is a true child of the North, recently returned to Yorkshire and residing in Leeds (after close to a decade living in exile in Croydon and South East London). He used to co-run a specialist record store in Manchester (Roadkill Records), and also several years as a promoter, and put on shows for the likes of Leatherface, the Loved Ones, Lucero, Minus The Bear, These Arms Are Snakes, Spy vs Spy, Latterman etc. He also spent several years DJing at shady rock clubs in Manchester, and started the infamous Thursday night "punk room" at Jilly's Rockworld. Also responsible for Middle Finger Response, and collaborated with a couple of friends on a monthly night called Refuse to Lose, which will still occasionally reunite the original DJ line-up - next event at Retro in Manchester on 07/09/2019. Apart from that, it's all bitterness and a jaundiced view of human nature, occasionally skateboarding, always exhausted, often reading books with maps in the front.
