    • Hey-up, peeps,

      Gore-Dinah is in search if a new, preferably female bassist.

      We deliver propah, no-nonsense sweary, high energy, super fun Punk-Rock but, sadly, broke our old bass player.

      We are ideally looking for a girl to keep an even boys/girls ratio on stage.

      The whole of our material is original. Some of our influences are Hole, The Pixies, The Muffs, The Clash, Jack White, The Kills, The HeadCoats (and HeadCoatees!), The Primitives, Green Day, Daisy Chainsaw and many, many others... 

      Because of the nature of the act, we will always privilege attitude over musical abilities, although we're looking for an adult woman with enough technique to be able to remember and play 10 or so tunes in a row in tempo without falling over. 

      Also, an ability to remember simple tunes and lyrics and to sing them relatively in tune is a definite advantage, so is a fondness for basic, repetitive, loud punk tunes! 

      The ideal candidate will be able to pick up a song and make it her own. 

      First and foremost, we're super nice and need other super nice people to play with! 
      Douchebags, divas, and egomaniacs are a definite no go. Sad as it may sound, please also refrain from applying if you have alcohol, drugs or violence related issues. 

      Please also note that most of the material performed contains explicit lyrics, a constant use of swearwords and regular references to sex, drugs and violence. 
      For that reason, applicants of a sensitive disposition and/or under 18 years of age need not apply. 

      On the other hand, we do not discriminate on age, (Hell, the old one must have been a 100, for all I know!) colour, haircut, number of tattoos or any such bollocks. We are firm believers that Punk is about freedom, rebellion and wild abandon. Also, how you want to express that is up to you! 

      We will be playing live in March and so would like to be able to do 1/2 rehearsals a week to start off with. 

      You can listen to some of our incredibly poorly recorded tunes here:

      or here:

      You can also find us on facebook here:

      If this sounds like you, please PM us and we'll reply immediately!

      ‘Complete Singles’

      11 track LP only: Orange vinyl: Label: Overground

      Cat. No. OVER 144LP  

      Release Date: 23rd Feb 2015

      The Nuclear Socketts formed in King’s Lynn, Norfolk in April, 1979. At their first gig later that year, John Peel was in the audience. He became an immediate convert and would later give the band considerable airplay.

      The band released two singles in 1981, the first of which was the ‘Honour Before Glory’ EP, released in January. It made No.1 in the King’s Lynn chart. It was so successful that the band started their own label Subversive and released records by Reality, European Toys and Section A.

      In March, 1981 the band appeared as part of the John Peel Roadshow at Lowestoft College. The gig was recorded and the track ‘Riot Squad’ from the show was released as a flexi disc.

      August saw the release of the ‘Play Loud’ 7”. It was a favourite of John Peel and he would often open the show with it. In the same month the band recorded a John Peel session with ex-Mott The Hoople’s Dale Griffin.

      Both singles are highly sought after amongst 70s punk collectors and killed-by-death fans.

      A third single was recorded at Trident Studios, London in March 1982. The A-side was ‘900 Days’ b/w ‘I’m Alive’, the former is a rewrite of an any earlier composition ‘Bully Boys’, the latter an updated faster version of ‘Pretender’s Zeal’ with a different guitar solo. The band had run out of money and had hoped that a bigger independent label would release it, but after several months and no success the impetus had been lost and the band disbanded the following year.

      ‘The Complete Singles’ compiles their two singles, their live flexi, the previously unreleased third single and two studio demos, limited to just 300 hand-numbered copies on orange vinyl.

       Track Listing:

      Spy In My Brain/ Potential Killers/ Pretender’s Zeal/ Play Loud/ Shadow On The Map/

      Riot Squad (live version)/ 900 Days/ I’m Alive/ Pretender’s Zeal (version 2)/ Honour Before Glory/ Riot Squad

    • Yeah,

      the SHITPHONES are a 3-piece-garage band from Berlin-Kreuzberg, tightly connected to a club called Trickster.

      In Summer 2014, Hank Over, Dirty Dick Diggler and Elvis Beckenbauer gathered together for 3 days and wrote 5 garage-punk emeralds with titles like "Cheap beer", "Barbara Ding-Dong", "Tour de Bar", "Human Foot switch" and ""Good feelings".

      2 weeks later, they met again in the basement, this time with the faboulous sound engineer Veit Rausch and recorded all the stuff (and two covers of ON ON ON and Shocking Blue) in an amazing 18-hours session.

      The result will be released early 2015 on JOHN STEAM Records.

      We would like to invite interested labels and supporters to cooperate with JSR for the realization of this 7inch in a scheduled limited edition of 100-200 pieces. Cover artwork will be done by Freddy Fudd Pucker from New Zealand.

      If you are interested in a release of this stuff, we can send you some mp3 of the mastered songs.

      Just send a mail to - or get in contact with Gary Flanell via the Profile of the Renfield-Fanzine.

    • Oh , well , no harm done. The "Aus' would mean "From" if this were a German poster , but , obviously , it is'nt.  OH ! What's her name , from The  Embrooks ? I saw them , several times , here in the states.

    • November 18, 2014 5:58 PM CST
    • Probably not John, Thee Jezebels are an all girl English group (Ex-Embrooks, Sine Waves) from Hastings, not too far from Brighton, the poster kind of makes it look as if both bands are from Oz when it's only The High Learys.

    • November 18, 2014 5:51 PM CST
    • Glad you liked it. Seriously , this looks like a cool show. I'll have to see if my Sheilagh from Oz knows about The(e) Jezebels. There's a really good all - female band in Adelaide called The Villenettes. I would'nt call 'em Garage , kinda hard to define. They rock.  Pete Curry from Los Straitjackets told them ,"You're already too good for South By Southwest !".

    • November 18, 2014 4:40 PM CST
    • Lamentable John........absolutely lamentable !.........enough to make one drive a nail through ones more sensitive parts !

    • I went to The Prince Albert , mate. Just to use the bog.  Get it? Prince Albert , in the can ?

    • COOL.  I had a friend whose band was covering "Bad Girl" by The Zakary Thaks. They learned it from The X-Men's version , so , their flyer read "Playing song by *** , *** , and The X-Men.

    • November 13, 2014 2:00 PM CST
    • It was a great show! They did it very well.
