LAST GANG IN TOWN & 0161 FESTIVAL present… MOSCOW DEATH BRIGADE + THE RESTARTS
MOSCOW DEATH BRIGADE – Moscow Death Brigade is a circle-pit hip-hop phenomenon from Russia. Influenced by Drum’n’Bass, Dancehall, Techno and Grime, energized by a Hardcore-Punk attitude and layered with machine-gun Rap flow, the crew lyrically explore topical political and social issues. The result is a genre and scene-spanning explosive musical statement that speaks out against racism, fascism, sexism and bigotry and for rebellion, subversion, respect and unity.
Moscow Death Brigade has become one of the most active Russian antifascist bands, opposing all kinds of discrimination and fascism, organizing and taking part in benefit events and spreading the message of unity. From punx, skinheads and metalheads, to hip hop kids and graffiti artists, the crowd will be diverse, demonstrating that all of us are the parts of the same worldwide underground movement, based on friendship, mutual support and freedom.
After smashing it on Hangar 161 at Boomtown Fair this summer, Moscow Death Brigade are back for their first UK and Ireland tour and we can’t wait to bring them to Cambridge.
THE RESTARTS – The Restarts first crawled out of the North London Squat scene well over 20 years ago. Serial dole scroungers the lot of them, they named their band after the dreaded ‘back to work’ interviews and set about touting their stroppy four-chord punk to spiky-haired audiences around the world.
Clawing their way to the top of the underground pile, yet staying true to their ideals and the DIY culture at the true subversive heart of punk, the Restarts have toured all over Europe, the US and Canada, and with numerous releases have found themselves playing their part in the worldwide network of DIY Punk Rock.
Combining their socially aware lyrics with raw vocals and plenty of chorus “shout-a-longs” their abrasive yet catchy UK punk sounds are coming back to Cambridge. DIY political punk for the 21st century!!
