YES SIR I WILL

We have a very special event to open Rebellion Festivals 2014 on Thursday in the Empress Ballroom.

In commemoration of the thousands on both sides who died brutal, pointless deaths in WW1, Penny Rimbaud & Eve Libertine present a reworking of the Crass classic ‘Yes, Sir, I Will’ complete with a six piece band. They are joined by Gee Vaucher who will be showing the classic film of the same name. As Rimbaud puts it -  “It will be good to do ‘Yes, Sir’ at the festival because it’s probably more relevant today than it was thirty-five years back, and all the more so for this being the centenary year of ‘the war to end all wars’ – will we ever learn?”.

Day tickets are available for this special one off performance – see here: http://www.rebellionfestivals.com/tickets/

the-dickies’77 Punk Stalwarts THE DICKIES have been booked and will be playing Thursday 7th August. If there’s one band sure to put a smile on your face whilst playing at 100MPH then The Dickies are that band. Hailing from the good ol’ USA they enjoyed a sustained period of National Chart success in the late 70’s with re-workings of classics like “Silent Night”, “Paranoid” , “Nights In White Satin” and of course, “Banana Splits” (all on coloured vinyl).

They could also pen a mean tune themselves as the likes of “Fan Mail”, “Where Did His Eye Go” (about Sammy Davis!) and “Bowling With Bedrock Barney” aptly show. They also brought a good sense of humour to their live shows with vocalist Leonard Graves Phillips often appearing in fancy dress. What a great way to start the weekend!
