Smash It Up teams up with GJM Music to bring you legends of 70’s punk THE VIBRATORS, who are celebrating their 40th anniversary, having been at the centre of the original punk explosion. They have influenced generations of musicans and are still incredily popular on the circuit and are regular visitors to Hull in their time. Backing them up on this occasion are Grimsby’s finest melodic punks NOT TONIGHT AND THE HEADACHES, and Hull’s Grungy punks VASUKI. It’s a wicked show that you don’t want to miss. Come and celebrate 40 years of punk rock
With a career lasting thirty-three years, vocalist/guitarist IAN “KNOX” CARNOCHAN, bassist PAT COLLIER, guitarist JOHN ELLIS and drummer EDDIE originally formed the VIBRATORS in February 1976, and their first gig was supporting THE STRANGLERS at Hornsey Art College in North London. They supported THE SEX PISTOLS at the 100 CLUB and were one of the bands playing at the now legendary 100 CLUB PUNK ROCK FESTIVAL, where as well as doing their own set they supported guitar hero CHRIS SPEDDING. CHRIS recommended the band to his then record company, RAK. The band’s debut single “WE VIBRATE” came out in November (one of the first punk singles) and was followed two weeks later by CHRIS SPEDDING’S “POGO DANCING” single with the VIBRATORS as the band on that.
In their long career the VIBRATORS have toured with the likes of IGGY POP (with DAVID BOWIE on keyboards), IAN HUNTER, THE FLAMING GROOVIES, DIE TOTEN HOSEN, and have had their songs covered by THE EXPLOITED, UK SUBS, GBH, REM, DIE TOTEN HOSEN, to name but a few. Now in 2011 the band celebrate THIRTY-FIVE YEARS of making records and touring heavily, in 2010 the band did more than 130 gigs. Get ready for many more years of PURE MANIA!Doors 8pm
