Duncan Reid And The Big Heads + Nuffin
+ Legal Freaks
DuncanReid and the Big Heads- The former Boys boy bounces back with his chick/chap choon churning mosheen
of joy. You want punk? You want pop? You want punky pop right? Good coz this is that at it’s tightest,
tastiest, tantalizingliest, ya get me. A fab nite out. Nuffin- On 3rd August 1977, Nuffin’ turned up at the
legendary Roxy Club to play ‘Audition Night’, only to find that Janet Street-Porter and a TV crew had taken
over. Luckily, they were looking for an ‘undiscovered’ band as a counterpoint to all of the hype around at the
time. And so a brief snap-shot of the the four Caterham teenagers, strutting their stuff and sharing their take
on life, was captured for posterity. Legal Freaks- Dave Roca formerly ofUnderrunners fronts this punknroll
kick ass band….Dead Boys, Lords

Banquet Records presents...TROPHY EYES

Presented by Banquet Records

Following the release of their new album, Trophy Eyes play in Kingston.

The Australian punkers return to The Fighting Cocks to celebrate the release of their highly anticipated third full length album 'The American Dream'. Merging anthemic pop-punk qualities with some heavy, modern alt-rock. Fans of Trash Boat, The Smith Street Band or The Menzingers should give this lot a listen.

"The American Dream is about restoring quietness after upheaval and unrest. Despite living in an age of hellfire, Trophy Eyes still have a positive outlook on the future. Their new album will feature a sense of renewal while giving fans optimism. Additionally, The American Dream is an intrinsic look on Floreani’s personal growth."

“This record is about my life in present time and a reflection on who I was and how I got here,” he says. “As much of the other Trophy Eyes works have been about the hate, violence, addiction and heartbreak I fought so desperately to leave behind, this record is about shedding one’s past, transitioning from boy to man, making a home and wanting nothing more in life than to sit and enjoy the silence.”

Times TBC but we expect doors to be at 7:30pm.

Albums+Tickets will be on sale from 11am 9th July on the events page: https://www.banquetrecords.com/events

The Fighting Cocks is an 18+ venue. Please bring photo ID.

Banquet Records presents...TRASH BOAT Album Release Show

Following the release of their new album, Trash Boat play an 18+ show The Fighting Cocks as well as an all ages in-store just before in the shop.

They're back with their highly anticipated second full length album titled Crown Shyness, following on from their class 2016 soupy-produced debut Nothing I Write You.... this offering gives more of their punishing and aggressive blend of emotive, angst led pop-punk, that's heading into heavier and more post-hardcore sounding territory. If you're a fan of Boston Manor, The Wonder Years or Knuckle Puck then give this a listen. They've played in Kingston it's great to have them return for these two shows.

"In terms of the last album, the way that I write is very introspective. I enjoy being very heavily self-reflective on the things that are happening around me and the interactions and relationships that I have with people. I enjoy putting a microscope on them and trying to figure them out. It tends to come out in song pretty well and makes for a very engaging and emotional performance as well as great songs. So I wanted to just continue doing that."

In-store is expected to start at 6:00pm

Times for The Fighting Cocks show are still TBC but we expect doors to be at 7:30.

After the 18+ show, we'll give you a wristband to get you into New Noise for free, we'll be playing a range of punk through to ska and back to emo, you can expect to hear bands such as Jimmy Eat World, Modern Baseball, Funeral For A Friend, Less Than Jake, Boston Manor, A Day To Remember, Reel Big Fish, Paramore, Bring Me The Horizon, The Used, You Me At Six, Refused and obviously much more!

Album+Tickets will be on sale from the events page, please make sure you purchase for the right show: https://www.banquetrecords.com/events

Dukes of Bordello - Randy Savages - We Die Heroes, Free Entry

Proudly presented by The Fighting Cocks Bar & Live Music Venue & Bangers Embrace Presents

The Dukes Of Bordello These trashcan Rock ‘n ‘Roll troubadours from the wrong side of town have been bringing their infectious, back to basics guitar driven Rock ‘n ‘Roll to the UK and mainland Europe for the last 18 months. And now they're gonna bring it to Kingston.

Screeching out of a North London lock up on a stolen moped, Randy Savages are the missing link between cheap speed and Cheap Trick. Made up of equal parts has beens and wannabes, they blur the lines between 70's punk and 70's glam with ALL feet stomping.

We Die Heroes formed August 2014, a Surrey based 3pc rock/punk crossover heavily influenced by Motorhead and the Ramones along with other bands from that era. WDH opened for Motorheadache, Sham 69, Vice Squad, City of Ashes and The Derellas.
We Die Heroes???
If you want fast they've got it,
If you want angry they'll give it,
If you want ballads...call Bon Jovi :/
