About the event...


Legendary punk band 999 celebrate 40 years since they played the Rock Garden for the first time on August 27th, 1977 - the day after the Sex Pistols played. One of the last remaining punk bands with three original members plus Arturo from The Lurkers/Pinpoint/Lucky Saddles.

The Drones started out in the Manchester area in 1974 as a Glam Rock outfit called Rockslide, releasing a lone single 'Jump Bump Boogaloo' / 'Roller Coaster' in October 1975, before reinvented themselves as a punk rock band the following year.

The Filth from Thornaby reunited from the ashes of Funhouse but originally formed in 1978 and featured in one of Record Collectors Rarest Punk 7" Singles of all time. No Way- another vintage Teesside punk band who lost their original singer Matey (Martyn Powell) a few years ago when he died suddenly of an asthma attack whilst at work are now back firing on all cylinders with John Bell on vocals.
