999 999 are an English punk rock band, formed in London in December 1976. From the period of 1976 to 1985, the lineup of 999 consisted of Nick Cash (vocals, guitar), Guy Days (lead guitar), Jon Watson (bass) and Pablo LaBrittain (drums). (As a result of injuries sustained in a motor accident, LaBrittain was temporarily replaced by drummer Ed Case aka Paul Edwards in 1980.) Jon Watson left the band in 1985; being replaced by Danny Palmer, who remained with the band until 1991. Palmer was replaced by Arturo Bassick, who remains the bass player with 999 to this date. 999 will be celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2016, the reason for their longevity is not airplay, massive publicity, hype or even a major recording deal but word of mouth and that "word of mouth" now extends to nearly every country on earth. 999's debut single, "I'm Alive", was "a headlong rush of anti 9 to 5 rebellion complete with a bruising power-pop punk guitar attack and rent-a-yob pitched-in vocals." "A ferocious live band, the group harnessed every iota of their stage performance for the studio, turning in an album that zips past at the speed of light, in a blur of chant-worthy choruses and pogo-able riffs." http://www.nineninenine.net/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRX1WRaDYbebzgqLWkRidwQ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/999_%28band%29

The Bermondsey Joyriders Claiming all the credentials of a bonafide ‘77 super group, The Bermondsey Joyriders is a band pooling the hard-won experience and history of three veteran punks. Founding members Gary Lammin (vocals / guitar) and Martin Stacey (bass) cut their teeth in the Joe Strummer-produced Little Roosters and Generation X precursors Chelsea respectively, whilst recent recruit Chris Musto (drums) is a sticksman of some credentials - having previously played with Johnny Thunders, Joe Strummer and Nico, to name but a few! https://www.facebook.com/thebermondseyjoyriders http://www.thebermondseyjoyriders.co.uk/ https://soundcloud.com/the-bermondsey-joyriders
Morgellons A Post-Punk vision of the future whilst embracing the past ... Taking the post-punk blueprint of bands like Joy Division and Magazine, the frozen intensity of early Banshees and the art-school nihilism of the Velvets through to the Stooges, Morgellons have created a sound that, although rooted in a rich musical past, has a relevance and urgency that marks them out as something very different from their peers. https://www.facebook.com/Morgellons http://morgellonsband.com/ http://www.reverbnation.com/morgellons
