A return to Rebellion for Department S again this year to join in this greatest of punk celebrations. It’s a festival you have to go to at least once in ya life, a great party of punk and superb entertainment on so many levels. Though Dept S feel outsiders in some respect being more from the post-punk era, all the band have their roots firmly planted in the genre having played in or with such bands.
All credit to the organisers of this event who worked tirelessly to keep all the artists in check and changing over smoothly. The crews working the stages were immense, all credit to them too for their technical expertise and assistance.
I hope there weren’t too many casualties over the weekend, I hear the M6 was chokker heading south and led to some horrendous journey times home for some.
We are gearing up for the Undercover festival in September, and further gigs through the year. Next year will be the 35th anniversary of the release of Is Vic There?, so we are putting together something special for that in the New Year.
Keep safe ya buggers!
All rehearsals are complete for our appearance at this years Rebellion Festival in Blackpool. Unfortunately, our stalwart guitarist Mick Herbage can’t make this gig due to the imminent arrival of mini Herb.. We will battle on regardless with Sam Burnett carrying the can for guitar duties. Just turn up the volume and all will be well.
The organisers of Rebellion do a great job in organising this event, now the worlds biggest Punk gathering, and given the demise and late cancellation of this years Alt-Fest it’s hats off to the organisers for putting together such a large event.
Onwards and upwards fuckers!!
