      For those who like thier overdriven fuzz guitars matched with melodic pop vocals this could be for you...!


      Sweet but Deadly proudly presents...



      The Len Price 3 are an adrenaline-pumped pop band from England, forged in the traditions of their Medway Delta roots. They are a revelation to those who encounter them, encompassing all of what you would want from a band in one invigorating sonic experience. Their dazzling live performances feature a thunderous set of well-honed melodic nuggets played at breakneck speed, complete with shiny pop hooks and chrome glazed harmonies. But dig a bit deeper and you will find a rich lyrical content that is full of acid tongued lyrics and wry social observations.

      Third LP ‘Pictures’ gained slavish reviews across the world back in 2010 (Shindig readers voted it their ‘Album of the Year’!!). Fourth LP ‘Nobody Knows’ is out worldwide on February 4th, and this will be the first post-album show. So here’s a great chance to hear live and loud the songs that are currently buzzing around your head!




      As a member of such semi-legends as the Prisoners, The Solarflares, JTQ, Thee Headcoats and more recently The Stabilisers (amongst a much longer list), Allan Crockford has played an important if low-key part in establishing the Medway area's reputation as a hotbed for spirited, uncompromising garage rock with a strong DIY ethic. Playing with such Medway notables as Billy Childish, James Taylor and Graham Day his reputation was as the reliable sideman for more flamboyant figures. Now he has found a late flowering talent for writing his own material.

      The Galileo 7 were formed to play the songs he had been storing up for the last 3 or 4 years. While the band still has the trademark punk ('66 and '76 versions) fire and energy that marks out the Medway sound, there are extra elements in the music that shifts it away from the trademark crashbangwhallop... call it pop-psych, punkadelic, powerpop or whatever you like. If it's energy you're after you won't be disappointed, but there are also tunes and harmonies by the bucketload to guarantee that these songs hang around in your head long after the initial sonic impact has faded.


      The debut album 'Are we having fun yet?' was released in 2010, and second album 'Staring at the Sound' was released on in 2012. This show is a comeback of sorts for them, prevfiewing tracks from album number 3, so anticipation is already high!



      The Sonic Jewels make explosive garage rock, that’s an unholy amalgam of White Stripes, Black Keys (Thickfreakness era), Cream, Hendrix, Who with hypnotic psychedelic heavy riffing. Mojo journalist Lois Wilson calls them "a tremendous live act who manage to conjure excitement and energy from start to finish".

      They appeared on the Acid Jazz compilation 'Hipsters 2' and was dubbed one of the album’s “highlights” by, who said it “puts me in mind of The Prisoners”.


      + DJ Phil Istine (Deviation St/Shindig!/The Kumari) spins all the right records in the right order - garage, beat, mod, psych etc.
