Wonk @ Westgarth Social Club, Middlesbrough
We had lots of people saying last year that they’d really like to see WONK UNIT on Teesside . That’s easier said than done as they’re always on tour , just finished a sell out with Slaves as we speak then off to Europe . But we’ve got them at The Westgarth on Friday July 8th. and it’s your chance to see them up close & personal in the downstairs room AKA Westgarth 2 .
Joining Wonk Unit on the bill are York’s & TNS recording artistes The Franceens, one of the best live bands on the circuit these days . If you’ve been lucky enough to catch them before you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about . If you haven’t , make sure you don’t miss them .
“Ferocious and precise, the York trio have a penchant for ripping the roof off the venue. One the best live shows in the UK currently.”
“An intense thunderbolt of incredible garage melody many bands can only dream of.”
– Dave Fungalpunk HT
“The favourite garage band here at Louder Than War towers.”
– Louder Than War
“These two guys and bass-playing gal have done something few British bands manage – make a really convincing Garage sound that is vital and modern but fuse it with greaser Rock ‘n’ Roll.”
– Scanner Zine
Weld are no strangers to the local Teesside scene , with their own take on the sounds from the heyday of American Hardcore & with the new drummer on board things are really taking off for them . Alien8 are a melodic power trio with a nice line in Hawaiian shirts from Middlesbrough.
