The Gonads


Sept 16. Saturday night in London town is busier than a one-legged man in a forest fire. You've got Buster Shuffle's album launch at the Jazz Café in Camden; The Uppercuts are playing with Pope at the 12 Bar in Denmark Street, while The Phobics from Deptford play the Shacklewell Arms in Hackney, along with The Homosexuals and the Featherz. Alternatively Dale Winton's on the telly.


The GonadsRandom news: tickets for November's Cockney Rejects + Argy Bargy O2 Academy show are on sale here... Evil Conduct's new album, Today's Rebellion is released on 1st October on Randale in Europe and Six Feet Under in the USA... New York hc legends Sick Of It All are streaming new song 'DNC (Do Not Comply)' from their latest album, The Last Act Of Defiance (due out at the end of the month)...


It's the big question of the week, and every other week: what exactly will Gal's long-awaited solo project sound like? Could the picture on the right possibly be a clue? (I doubt it - weary Ed). Other questions include: is he dyeing his hair (again)? Isn't Fat Col normally the one of the fiddle? And isn't that showbiz legend Joe Longthorne with the squeezebox?


BTW, a list of prominent punks and herberts partial to a drop of Just For Men hair dye will be published here unless the usual consideration is forthcoming. You know who you are. You know what to do. Cash only.

The GonadsSept 13. These fine metallic Buckfast badges are being sold in Oi Oi The Shop, in Camden – all the proceeds will go to the family of the late, great Buckfast enthusiast Colin Mcquillan of Runnin’ Riot. Another good reason to visit Oi Oi The Shop, London’s premier oi emporium.


The GonadsSept 9. We're back, bitches, and we've brought you news of an early Christmas present: the Bootboy Xmas Knees-Up hits the 100 Club on Friday 19th December, with the Last Resort, Infa Riot, The Pukes, Hazard and Knock Off. It's also likely to feature our own Fat Col in the prestigious role of 'first drunken prick getting slung out by the bouncers'. All for £16.50 in advance - a John King/Human Punk Promotion. Good tidings of comfort and Oi!


The Gonads' England song 'A Line In The Sand' is rebooted here by Kid Punk's new band The Fallen.
