THE CUT UPS (ENG)
We are very excited to bring Exeter’s finest soulful melodic punk rockers back to Dundee for the first time since Book Yer Ane Fest IV. Their third full-length “Building Bridges. Starting Here” was released last year on Household Name Records and was one of the finest albums of 2012, as well as being their most cohesive and anthemic record to date. The Cut Ups are one of our collective favourite bands and are the nicest bunch in UK punk rock. This will be their first Scottish show in 3 years so dig into their back catalogue and get ready for the sing-a-longs. Get stoked!
Premier league “Ecossemo” indie/punk goodness from one of Dundee’s finest and most beloved bands. Bonehouse will be fresh back from their European tour with Brighter Arrows (USA). They’ll (hopefully!) be armed with their “The Long Summer” LP which brings together both the incredible EPs on one record and their 4-way split LP alongside Kaddish and Canadian punks Todos Caerán and Polina. Expect a top flight Scottish emo masterclass.
THE KIMBERLY STEAKS
One of the most under-rated bands in the country, The Kimberly Steaks bring pure early 90s Gilman Street worship together with characteristic Scottish cynicism and spit out short, fast, gobby melodic pop-punk bangers at 200mph. Like Jawbreaker having hangover breakfast with Osker, the Steaks will be in, out and drinking your beer before you know it. Split 7″ with Cleavers incoming.
THE WALKING TARGETS
Wise beyond their years Edinburgh young team punks bring their ridiculously catchy yet grizzled pop-punk back to Dundee for the first time since touring with The Murderburgers back in early March. These guys mix the gravel of HWM/Banner Pilot with the upbeat anthems of The Bouncing Souls/Menzingers and belt it out with suitable youthful passion. Go check out their EP and split with Maxwell’s Dead.
The shape of cowpunk to come!
