Double Headliner Show – Bunkerpop & Ded Rabbit
Bunkerpop/Ded Rabbit Double Headliner Show + Support
“Decked out in white boiler suits and spending most of their sets leading conga lines of enthusiastic (and pissed up) fans around the venue to the sound of their hypnotic beats rather than lounging on stage, Bunkerpop are constantly forced to remind the world that they are a band and not a cult. Their very British circuit-bent version of krautrock, as first presented on their eponymously titled debut album, which is released on independent label Fast and Bulbous, is truly addictive and so it’s easy to lose yourself in the mesmerising electronic repetition and never come back. But remember; it’s NOT a cult!” _ FMS Magazine
“Bunkerpop is an absolute must. The second Hull act to have made their way down for today, trying to convey their their live act is like a bit like plaiting fog, but try and imagine if Bertolt Brecht came back from the dead, involved as much as he alienated, and made a kind of quirky Anglicised-version of Krautrock. Unique and brilliant.” Louder Than War”
“Bunkerpop had the punters in the palms of their hands, joyfully receiving musical healings and happily joining the impromptu sit-down story-time session.
There’s most definitely talent here – a stonking rhythm section, seriously impressive synthing and a spirited front man who is not afraid to get his guns out on stage. Which isn’t easy when you’re wearing a boiler suit. Eclectic, energetic, and hugely enjoyable, Bunkerpop are like a raucous party inside and outside of your head.” – Joyzine
Ded Rabbit are a four piece Alt rock/Indie band consisting of four brothers; Eugene (vocals, rhythm guitar), Fergus (lead guitar), Donal (bass) and Eoin Gaine (drums).
Originally from Yorkshire, we moved to the Highlands in 1996 and through the isolation and a developing love of music, we started playing together about ten years ago. After moving to Edinburgh to study, we began taking music more seriously and recently feel we’ve started to find our feet in the studio; working on the last three EP’s in Glasgow with Rocket Science Studios, who have recorded Texas, Belle And Sebastian, Dougie MacLean and many more.
“Their music echoes the influences they cite like Hendrix and The Beatles (post-1965) but they are avid gig-goers too, eager to see what is going on nowadays, so they are just as likely to be out watching Peace or Palma Violets as they are at home listening to Abbey Road or Electric Ladyland” – John Paul Mason, Daily Record.
“With hints of The Housemartins and early Arctic Monkeys infused with a twist of funk and original lyrics, they have created a distinctive and highly listenable sound of their own.” – Olaf Furniss& Derick Mackinnon, Artist Of The Week: Scotland On Sunday.
“I know they’re very hard working and are building up a good following in the capital… classic Indie sound” – Vic Galloway, BBC Radio Scotland.
“Undeniable stage presence and performanceskills”(-)”An exciting live band that will appeal widely and who are definitely festival-ready” – David Balfour, Record Of The Day.
