The Restarts are: Kieran bass/vocals, Robin guitar/vocals and Jéremy drums. The Restarts formed back in 1995, in Hackney, London's East End. We are a socially aware, three piece punk band. Ever since the 90's we have been gigging in and around the UK and Europe, playing squat gigs and pubs mostly. We have been to the USA an Canada three times, and hopefully again at some point. We consider ourselves part of a large world wide network of DIY Punk Rock, we are punks first, musicians second. We feel the social importance of Punk Rock takes priority over the "marketability" of a rehashed trend. We stand by our words and have NEVER stopped liking the music we listen to, live by and make (even when it wasn't popular) Please get in contact, get involved and help the punk scene grow independently of the music industry giants! We hope to be playing somewhere near you soon! -The Restarts
"70s punk (Ramones, Clash, Pistols, Damned etc) ... adding a good ol' full measure of trashy rock'n'roll-a-billy, a dash of 60s Psyche-Out Garage, a bitter twist of country and whizzing it all up with some g'darning loud geetars our special brand of thunderous drums!"
Kid Slug serve up a unique cocktail of their very own making which they brand "Punk & Blues". They mix classic sounds reminiscent of Dr. Feelgood, Elvis Presley and Bo Diddley with a blisteringly fast punk rock sound and attitude.
