6:30 – 7:00 * HOSTAGE LIFE: “Honest, gritty old school punk rock.” “Street punk along the same lines as Street Dogs or the less-corny, less-Irish Dropkick Murphys tracks. Luckily, Hostage Life forgoes the typical lyrical content of the aforementioned bands and their contemporaries in favor of intelligent socio-political commentary with an earnest, personal slant.”
5:45 – 6:15 * BROADCAST ZERO: “…classic tofu-and-two-veg punk rock, the kind that creates an instant feeling of comfort and familiarity as it floods into every synapse you possess. Brick-solid riffs, razor-sharp bass, muscle-punching rhythms and vox that demand attention RIGHT FUCKIN’ NOW blend effortlessly together. It’s a solid no-nonsense balls-out streetpunk n’ roll beat.”
5:00 – 5:30 * THE ROTTEN:”gritty, gruff, fast and furious 77-style punk rock n’ roll. It’s raw, it’s raging and it’s rocket-fueled. You get songs about love, hate, beer, smashing the state, fast cars and capitalist pigs. It’s snotty, it’s snide, it’s raucous and rockin and it’ll hit you harder than a bullet-belt to the head.”
4:15 – 4:45 * THE STEELTOWN SPOILERS: “The Hamilton Kid & The Steeltown Spoilers have been around for years in different projects: Sam Lawrence 5 / The Mickey DeSadist Show / Thunderfuck & The Deadly Romantics / HorrorBiz / The Vapids / The Lorrainas / Slander / Columbian Necktie, and The Chico Maki Punk Rock Experience to name but a few, and have joined forces to give a new voice to street punk rock & roll.”
3:30 – 4:00 * THE LET DOWNS: (“Pat) Havoc and former Wet Spots Ian ‘Mo De Lon’ Hassel (guitar) and Pete ‘Second’ Best (drums) as well as former Problem Children bassist Barney Rebel, decided to get together and learn some Clash songs and for the last few years have expanded their catalogue and christened themselves The Let Downs.” “It ain’t easy listening” – Mo De Lon.
