The Restarts + Casual Nausea at The Corner House
14/04/17 to 14/04/17 - 19:30 to 23:30 - £6 entryLAST GANG IN TOWN present THE RESTARTS + CASUAL NAUSEA THE RESTARTS – The Restarts first crawled out of the North London Squat scene well over 20 years ago. Serial dole scroungers the lot of them, they named their band after the dreaded 'back to work' interviews and set about touting their stroppy four-chord punk to spiky-haired audiences around the world. Clawing their way to the top of the underground pile, yet staying true to their ideals and the DIY culture at the true subversive heart of punk, the Restarts have toured all over Europe, the US and Canada, and with numerous releases have found themselves playing their part in the worldwide network of DIY Punk Rock. Combining their socially aware lyrics with raw vocals and plenty of chorus “shout-a-longs” their abrasive yet catchy UK punk sounds are coming back to Cambridge. DIY political punk for the 21st century!! http://www.restarts.co.uk http://www.facebook.com/therestarts CASUAL NAUSEA – A glorious frantic mess. More a group of friends or some sort of deranged punk rock family than a band. Fast and aggressive yet strangely tuneful and sing along at the same time! http://www.facebook.com/casualnausea LAST GANG IN TOWN DJs – Punk & Ska http://www.facebook.com/LastGangInTownUK
