France’s “alien-gonzo-synth-punk rockers”, The Scaners, are ready to take off with their eponymous debut LP with the first single “No Place In Space” which takes the listener through a darker, slower wave that Louder Than War Magazine describes as “a swirlingly mesmeric menace of guttural growls backing a looming snarl over a dark driving rhythm.”
The legendary MASONICS return featuring Mickey Hampshire (Mickey and the Milkshakes), John Gibbs (Kaisers, Wildebeests) and Bruce Brand (Mighty Caesars, Headcoats, Holly Golightly).
Escobar was formed in 2014 in Limoges, France, by Remi Lucas (Weird Omen, The Anomalys) and Charly Kayo (The Bushmen, Daria). The band’s 2015 debut, エスコバル and the 2016 second album, Bird Of Prey, met wide acclaim. Escobar’s grunge-and-roll sound hearkens to Suicide and Nirvana. Escobar is now a 2-man pirate galleon, operating in cold waters, bloodied by the feast of a useless third.
BABY SHAKES are a rock n’ roll-punk band from New York City. Mary on lead vocals and guitar, Judy on lead guitar and vocals, Claudia on bass and vocals, and Ryan on drums. With catchy melodic vocals over dirty guitars and a killer rhythm section, their influences range from The Ramones and Slade to Chuck Berry and 60’s Motown girl groups.
THE MUMMIES (USA), PRETTY THINGS, TITO RAMIREZ (SPAIN), BARON FOUR, THE DREADS, THE FUZILLIS, JOHNNY THROTTLE & THE JACK CADES LIVE.
International DJ's, aftershow club nights, light show, Go Go dancers.

Hollywood Sinners are soon to release their long awaited and hilariously titled “Khöme Kakkä”, the follow up to the epic “Disastro Garantito” (released on Dirty Water back in 2011). The album was recorded at Circo Perotti, in Gijon, Spain, an all-analogue studio where the garage rock alumni include The Masonics, Billy Childish, Holly Golightly, The Cynics, The Urges and countless others and where they have laid down their craft with wizard producers Mike Mariconda and Jorge Explosion.
