Review of Our 1st Rebellion Appearance

Wonk Unit at Rebellion

We opened Saturday at Rebellion in Blackpool – and a great time was had by all…

Written by Dom Daley & Johnny H   

“First stop today is the must see Wonk Unit and the sharp as a tack lyrical observations of Alex Johnson and the ever changing line up of misfits he has gathered around him, but damn do they make a fantastic noise. Barely gone midday and the Casbah is rockin’ to the sounds of ‘You Married A Tortured Genius’, ‘Nan’, ‘Lewisham’ and ‘Donkey Of The Damned’. Alex shares a few poetic moments with the audience and has many in stitches as he explains where songs like ‘Lewisham’ come from. ‘Go Easy’ is breath-taking and ferocious and the sublime ‘Kings Road Sporting Heroes’ really is the perfect song for this festival. The ‘Nervous Racehorse’ heavy set is really cutting the mustard and Saturday is off to an early high as ‘Johnny Rambo’ closes another superb set from the mighty Wonk Unit.”
