9th February the return of The Fallen Leaves to The Westgarth Social Club ably supported by The Space Agency who headlined the first ever Fast Forward Promotions show.

A way off but 27th September sees the return of The Cyanide Pills supported by The Filth in The Green Room Stockton – a repeat of 2016’s stupendous show.

Still awaiting final confirmation of the rescheduled Rose McDowall show – provisionally March 1st.

2018 – Done & dusted!

Weekend just gone has seen the final shows of 2018. I said last year that I would be doing less shows in 2018 and definitely stuck to that. Great as well to do more co promotions and work with like minded people.

So thanks to John Otway, Chords UK, Galilleo 7, Spear of Destiny, Fallen Leaves, Filthy Tongues, Monochrome Set and Theatre of Hate for delivering great head line shows in 2018.

Thanks as well to all the support bands, too many to mention but most notable sets from Quarterlight, Cathode Ray and Johnny Seven but credit to Sound Reaction and Thee Strawberry Mynde without who’s help some gigs just wouldn’t have happened.

Best of the year? For me Fallen Leaves but Filthy Tongues ran them close.

Thanks to everyone who helped in any way shape or form but especially those that supported the gigs buying coming along and buying tickets

Cheers all, here’s to 2019.

Monochrome Set – Friday 30th November

The Monochrome Set were post punk before the phrase was invented. 40 years on and still as relevant, exciting & inventive as they’ve always been. Franz Ferdinand amongst others site them as a major influence.

“The perfect pop band” – so says Bob Fischer.

Cathode Ray from Edinburgh, supported Wire at the Georgian last year. Best described as Manchester Punk meets New York Disco.

Doors 8pm
Cathode Ray 8:45pm
Monochrome Set 9:45pm

Cyanide Pills – Postponed

Sadly the show at THE GREEN ROOM STOCKTON on March 1st is one to be cancelled. The show will be rescheduled in due course and tickets purchased remain valid for the new date or refunds can be obtained from the point of purchase.”
