So I've just about recovered from the madness that was the BBA Punk festival. For those of you not in the know, the BBA were a bunch of punks from Bangor during the 1980's. This was a reunion gig of the highest order, with bands from Bangor, Belfast, England, Wales and Holland. The headliners were Not the Only Clown in the Village, fronted by an old Bangorian, Robin Benson now based in Holland. We were also treated to epic sounds from The Defects, Henry Cluney, Charred Hearts, Runnin Riot, Protex - the list goes on, check out the poster on the gig posters page for the full line-up. Organised by one time BBA luminary Tommy Ireland and assisted by Georgina Tilly Ellery from London, it was one of the best days I have ever had and RedEye were privileged to be a part of it. Thanks to all the old punks (many of whom brought their kids ffs) for a truly memorable experience and a fucker of a hangover. Here's to next year!
Brilliant night last night with FUBAR and Ruled by Wolves. First night out for Lucas and it went pretty damn well. Thanks to FUBAR for inviting us to play, really enjoyed their set of classic punk covers. Ruled by Wolves played a blinder as well. Anyone who wasn't there missed a treat! Roll on next Saturday for BBA Taking Control in the Marine Court in Bangor - that's gonna be a fantastic day! All the details for the show can be found here:
We're really pleased to announce an unexpected gig next week, Saturday 16 June 2012. FUBAR invited us to play with them in Auntie Annie's, along with Ruled By Wolves. This is gonna be a great night and will be Lucas' first outing with the band. Bring it on!!
