ANGELIC UPSTARTS (UK) are an English punk rock/Oi! band formed in 1977. The band espoused an anti-fascist and socialist working class philosophy, and have been associated with the skinhead subculture, though the lead singer Mensi maintains that the Upstarts are and always were, a Punk band. More than two decades after its release, ANGELIC UPSTARTS debut single, ”The Murder Of Liddle Towers”, was included in Mojo magazine’s list of the best punk rock singles of all time.

PETER AND THE TEST TUBE BABIES (UK) saw daylight in 1978 when the 17 year old punks Peter Bywaters and Derek “Del“ Greening founded the band. After a couple of rehearsals they made their first recording ”Elvis Is Dead” which appeared on the Vaultage ‘78 compilation of Brighton new wave bands. Radio 1 DJ John Peel loved the song instantly and produced a John Peel session.
Their big success in the media pushed their debut album ”Pissed And Proud” to #1 in the English independent charts. Directly after that ”The Mating Sounds Of South American Frogs” was released – a must have for every record collection – and sold more than 100.000 copies, resulting in invitations from far and wide.

SKANDALITES (SWE) very own ska sound with influences from the three waves of ska mixed with a splash of death-metal, a dosis of German elektro and piles of pop, has a diabolic drive and beckoning beat that, paired with sheer joy, fills any dance floor, anywhere and anytime. Or as they like to put it: skank or die!

SHIT KIDS (SWE) were active during 1978-1981. They started out naming themselves ”Ballycocks mofas and the great lake hemoroids”, but changed to Shit Kids after a short while. As it was in the early days of punk, the audience was ecstatic while the press didn’t understand anything.
In 2018, Shit Kids from Östersund played their first gig in 23 years. They proved at least two things; one – that punk was not only a metropolitan phenomenon, and two – that they are still a great live band. With seven members on stage and loads of energy it can only be good.
Shit Kids debuted was an EP in 1979 and another the year after. The first EP is regarded as beeing one of the early Swedish punk’s real rarities and usually sells for around 5000 SEK.
Don’t miss Shit Kids return to Stockholm. It may be the last time.

CRÜCIFIX (SWE) started around 1983-84 as ”Intensive Terror”. At their first gig in a school, the band name was not considered appropriate, so they switched to the more Christian sounding ”Crucifix”. Later the name was adjusted to the more evil sounding Crücifix.
1988-1995 was a turbulent time, with many gigs, participation on several compilation cassettes and discs, and receiving a lot media coverage.
In March 1995 the band peaked, when they were supporting UK Subs at Kulturkammaren in Norrköping. Later that year Crücifix quit. A CD, ”Respect for the Elderly”, with 29 songs from Crücifix’s career was released. Since 2007 Crücifix slowly have found their way back to the live scene and soon they will enter a stage near you.

PASTORATET (SWE) doesn’t follow any trends, nor the sometimes, narrow square of punk laws. They simply don’t care and that’s why they have gained popularity. With high energy, super strong melodies and asskickin’ energy that smells of punk, hardcore, pop and a little bit metal they have added something new to the Swedish punk scene.
These guys are no beginners with members from Snutjävel, Vänsternäven, The Liptones and the 90’s skatepunks New Deal. With two new EP’s out on Second Class Kids you finally have a new band to discover! Check them out now!

POWER FACE (SWE) is one of those bands that manages to completely balance all its influences. It is completely and undoubtedly hardcore on every level at the same time as there is a large amount of classic rock and punk in the mix. It’s possible to draw links to both The Hellacopters and Pissed Jeans. That’s what makes this band so brilliant. They keep everything hardcore stands for with aggression, anger and taking things to the forefront, bringing tastefully in other influences.
