Friday October 17th
The 5th anniversary!
Deviation Street is London’s hot hang-out for desperate rock’n’rollers. You’ll see & hear the best new garage and trashy rock’n’roll bands we can find.
In addition DJ Phil Istine and guest DJ Eric Baconstrip (King Salami & The Cumberland 3) will be on hand with the vintage vinyl, spinning 45s of garage, beat, punk, & other trash.
Los Bengala. A rudimentary two piece band of guitar and drums. Only two instruments and voices. Only rhythm and machetes. Garage rock feline developed by two lovers over dark and dirty rock'n'roll
A bunch of scruffy mid-60s obsessed miscreants predominantly - but not exclusively - from the south-east of England, and the Hastings area in particular. They peddled a ferocious punk-tinged brand of raw, primal garage R'n'B around the UK and Europe between 1987 and 1991, recording an LP - Could You Walk On Water? - an EP and a 45 for Screaming Apple records, based in Cologne, Germany, along the way. All these recordings were produced by the legendary Billy Childish. They reformed in 2013, and released the “I’m Walkin’” 45 on State Records to much acclaim.
THE HOWLING FIENDS
Hackney three-piece garage rock’n’roll trio, who soon will be known by new name The Beat Inn Spirit. Their second Deviation Street appearance, such did we enjoy the first.
The Remnants were left over from disbanded acts The Kleek, The Higharts & Hooligan Choir. The love of The Beatles and 1960's music brought them smashing together to create a band that tried to produce classic 60's music as it should be. They have a great songwriting base too and have some really good danceable tracks that would fit snuggly in-between the classics of yesteryear.
