Pizzatramp Wonkfest 4

BAD BREEDING have mastered dissonant punk rock, they have a totally unique style, so many gems. Two people in a room get’s better and better every time I hear it, smashing  >> https://soundcloud.com/badbreeding

The Parkinsons burst on to the scene at the dawn of the new millennium causing carnage in their wake, described as “Iggy Pop meets the Sex Pistols” they are back with a bang for Wonkfest 5 Xxx >> https://theparkinsons.bandcamp.com/

White Ape.  “It’s like The Beatles on Acid…” so stoked to see White Ape playing Wonkfest 5..check out their brand new single below xxx > https://soundcloud.com/white-ape/sets/drones-clones-ramones

Tick! Tick! Tick! the party is coming to Wonkfest 5…It’s SHOT with their “Politically distressed/Pissed up Punk Rock n’ Roll from the hard knock pits of London” ….SHOT! kill it live and we are all in for a real treat! Xxx > https://shotpunx.bandcamp.com/

A bunch of us recently caught The Kimberly Steaks at the Wrox, which is secret code for Tha Rab ‘s house, seeing a band this good in someone’s front room is an event to be remembered, there really is no hiding when it’s so up close and personal…They were tight, catchy, upbeat, and ever so much fun….their brilliant Glaswegian pop punk tunes had everyone singing along and having a wonderful time from beginning to end…The Steaks really are a most excellent band and we are very lucky to welcome them to Wonkfest 5! Yay X > https://thekimberlysteaks.bandcamp.com/

Expect thunderous drumming, expect wild grime infused bass lines, expect catchy hooks, massive drops and precise lyrical delivery, It’s our pleasure to bring you once again the NOVA TWINS XxX

Aerial Salad... a total gem of a band unearthed from the mean streets of Manchester making their Wonkfest debut this year. Recently played their first London show at the Windmill and blew everyone away with their catchy melodic punk, they certainly have that “je ne sais quoi” that all really good bands need, something you can’t quite put your finger on…Expecting big things from these chaps, and they are lovely too! Xxx > https://aerialsalad.bandcamp.com/releases

Pizzatramp! These boyos should be no strangers to you by now, after ripping the roof off Wonkfest last year they were snapped up by TNS/Plasterer records and delivered one of the best UKHC records heard in years “Blowing Chunks”….mixing a snarl and a swagger with light hearted banter that can’t fail to draw you in.
