NEW TOWN KINGS – Making another welcome return to Cambridge, the Essex-based New Town Kings collective are re-uniting with the Last Gang In Town crew to bring you another night of full on skanking with their unique, infectious and energetic brand of Ska and Reggae.
Since 2006 this 9 piece have been rocking venues and festivals across the UK and Europe and sharing the stage with bands including The Slackers, The Aggrolites, Gentlemen’s Dub Club and The Skints to name a few.
Emphatically blending old-school Jamaican rhythms with a fresh dose of UK-inspired Ska, the New Town Kings’ sound ranges from mellow, chilled-out Reggae reminiscent of Gregory Isaacs, to thumping dub, and to upbeat party-fuelled Ska anthems of a similar vein to The Specials – all delivered with an expert ability and that all important punk-rock attitude.
THE PISDICABLES – Signed to BeSharp records, this 6 piece Ska Punk band from South East London incorporate their love of old school Ska, 2-Tone and Punk into the music that they play. Influenced by bands including the Specials, Selector, Rancid and Inner Terrestrials, these guys impressed us with their on-stage presence & energy, and we’re looking forward to their second gig in Cambridge.
24 ROBBERS – Norwich 4 piece 24 Robbers play melodic Punk Rock with the rhythmic element of Ska/Reggae-influenced vocals punching through the huge driving beats, boomin’ bass, heavy guitar and intricate groves! They have shared the stage with bands including Capdown and Sonic Boom Six and are making their debut Last Gang Cambridge gig.
LAST GANG IN TOWN DJs – Ska, Reggae & Punk
INNER TERRESTRIALS – Formed 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.
THE DUB RIGHTERS – Making their Last Gang debut, London punks The Dub Righters play a mash up of Reggae and Ska influenced Hip Hop.
CARA MEANS FRIEND – Acoustic Reggae/Ska/Folk/Hip Hop/Punk and heaps of positive vibes from Cara, who you may recognise from The Defekters and Phoenix City All-stars.
