Green Mind & Ahhh Real Records present PETROL GIRLS

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

Petrol Girls are a feminist post-hardcore punk band, originally formed in London, with members from Austria, Lithuania and the UK. Now based all over the place and touring incessantly, the band are strong advocates of freedom of movement, anti capitalism and intersectional feminism. Rooted in a DIY music community that has always combined politics with punk rock, Petrol Girls are part of a counter culture challenging mainstream values like nationalism and the gender binary, and the oppressions that these ideals promote. With a diverse range of influences such as Refused, The Slits, Fugazi and Björk; and having had the pleasure to support bands such as The Dead Kennedys, Propagandhi, RVIVR, Anti Flag and Refused; the band are constantly developing musically as well as politically. Their music frequently toys with unusual time signatures and harmonic movement, with screaming and harsh angular rhythms to sad and desperate melodic moments or raging anthemic choruses. The lyrics grow from direct experiences and genuine questions, pushing beyond repetitive slogans to provoke meaningful conversations about what we’re actually going to do to change something.

“It’s 40 years since The Monochrome Set formed and the legendary band are on the road once more, bringing their hook-crammed melodies and dark sense of humour to The Portland Arms.

Featuring original members Bid (Guitar/Vocals) and Andy Warren (bass) with John Paul Moran (keyboards) and Mike Urban, who was previously in the band in the early 90s, on drums, The Monochrome Set formed in 1978 and were heavily influential in the ‘post-punk’ scene that evolved after the initial scorched earth of punk.

The band’s early releases were on the legendary Rough Trade Label before signing with Virgin offshoot Din Disc. They also released several albums on the Cherry Red label, making a notable appearance on that labels’ well known ‘Pillows and Prayers’ compilation.

Though The Monochrome Set split in 1985 the next decade saw several reunions for both live gigs and further studio recordings, their album release count now being well into double figures.

After a hiatus of over a decade the band reformed full time in 2010 and have since toured all over the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA, whilst also releasing four new, critically acclaimed, studio albums. This year, 2018, is the fortieth anniversary of the band’s formation and they will be releasing a box set of their first four albums to celebrate this in February, that month will also see the release of their fourteenth, new, studio album, ‘Maisieworld’, both on the German label ‘Tapete’.

“The band’s second album, Losing, is grimier and less sugar-slick than their 2015 debut, Feels Like, where songs like “Trying” and “Milkman” offered hooks so punchy they bordered on pop-punk. Here, by contrast, Bognanno seems frozen in the moment where she’s poised to jump but hasn’t left the ground yet, tensed and ready to strike as she sings out the snags in her interpersonal malaise. More second-person pronouns pepper her lyrics than ever, whether she’s figuring out how to traverse a toxic relationship or nursing one hell of a crush. Her sandpaper scream is still the most immediately arresting element of Bully’s music; when, on “Running,” she seethes, “You say I’m running/But I don’t care/I’ll admit it/I get anxious too/Just like you,” it lands less like a confession and more like an uppercut.” Pitchfork

Keith’s Shed + Goddammit Jeremiah + Angel Underground
Jun 15 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

The return of the semi-legendary, melodic punk noise of Keith’s Shed. Expect Buzzcocks-like classic sing-along tunes, gratuitous swearing and general good natured craziness. A quality night is guaranteed!

“Bonkers Record of the Week” (Steve Lamacq)

“A wry set of low-budget garage punk rock spiked with sarky narcissism and some fine rickety tunes. It’s messy but then so are many sources of pleasure” (Select)

“Unashamedly silly punk. Despite their determination to arse about, they have great songs. Sounds better after consuming six pints of lager.” (E.P. Magazine)

“Punkish loonies … highly entertaining … full of Buzzcocks-style songs with loads of humour” (Cambridge Evening News)

With support from Goddamit Jeremiah, who play sweary, quirky punk about love and hate, pterodactyls and taxidermy and
Angel Underground – Rock or punk? Angel Underground are loud and not pretty!”

Last Gang In Town: Inner Terrestrials +The Dub Righters +Cara Means Friend

INNER TERRESTRIALSFormed in 1994, London’s legendary Inner Terrestrials are original pioneers of the UK Dub Punk sound; a stomping mix of Dub, Punk, Ska, Folk and general anarchic danceability. One of the hardest working bands around, they have gigged and toured extensively playing venues, festivals, squat parties, demo’s and protest sites all over the UK and Europe. Inner Terrestrials are the real deal.
