£8 ADV / £10 OTD
ESTABLISHED in 1995, The Propaganda And Information Network (as P.A.I.N is officially named) was first put together from the ashes of two seminal free festival bands: A.O.S.3 and Radical Dance Faction. Brought together to carry on the same Anarcho-style rantings, but with a much harder, Punk Rock attitude to it (less toking and more drinking!) within the first 7 days of forming P.A.I.N managed to book up a 3 week tour, literally writing the set in soundchecks. The band went from strength to strength releasing their first live demo (Prison’s no Place for Punishment – a real collector’s item these days,) within their first month of existence. Well that was years ago. Since then P.A.I.N. have released 2 studio albums, 2 cd singles and a couple of live albums, and are currently working on a new studio album and a P.A.I.N. in Dub album.
“Sharpen your cutlasses boys, theres a mighty stormy sea ahead!!”
Where folk and punk collide to provide a passion infused commentary that is as raw and honest as it comes ......
Headsticks' distinct brand of punked up roots rock and roll blends barbed lyrics, anthemic choruses, and addictive melodies to create passion infused performances oozing honesty, integrity and raw energy, all delivered with a wry humour! Live performances, as well as their debut album 'Muster' and follow up album 'Feather and Flame' continue to receive rave reviews from pillars of both the world of folk and world of punk and it is little wonder that their unique style is attracting attention from near and far as the band continue their epic crusade to say it like it is!
Formed in Sheffield in 2005 with the intention of recreating the authentic flavour of the seminal punk bands of the late 70’s, three old friends, Mr Keef & Chris (The Grind/Rocket Scientists) and Muzz (Artery/Death Trash) teamed up with drummer Mike.
Coming through with a brutally raw interpretation of hardcore and punk, Negative Measures started playing music together with three aims; play fast, hard punk music, deliver a powerful live show and shine an angry light on political wrongs.
