FUK / The Domestics / Guilt Police / Con Party

  • The Smokehouse 6 South Street Ipswich, Suffolk IP1 3NU (map)


We’ve been trying to get them to Ipswich for a couple of years now, and finally we have ‘em! The greatest band of the New Wave of British Punk Rock – FUK. Featuring members of Bristol legends CHAOS UK, amongst others, FUK are a 1000% two fingers in the air punk rock kick in the guts and if you miss them you’ll regret it. Their new album may well be out by the time this gig comes around, but in the meantime, here’s a song from their last record: 


These purveyors of East Anglian Hardcore seem to have played everywhere EXCEPT Ipswich over the last couple of years but now they’re back and will have their new album released on TNS Records / KangarooRecords by the time this gig happens. Mixing up elements of classic and contemporary US hardcore (OUT COLD, POISON IDEA, KOWARD) with some Japanese (think GAUZE) and Swedish HC elements to create a sound all of their own. Here's a track from their 'Brutal Regimes' 7": 


Last time GIRL POWER (same band as GUILT POLICE with the same songs - it;s just a name change!) played in Ipswich they sold every single copy of their demo that night. Now with a 7” E.P., a 12” on James Domestics’ Kibou label, a new drummer and a string of gigs behind them they’ve come back for round two. A smashing, powerful mix of fast ‘n’ slow from this Oxford bunch. You will not be disappointed.

Here's a track from the recent 'Welcome to the Gun Show' 12" mini album: 


Young Ipswich band influenced by all the right things (BLACK FLAG, MINOR THREAT, DEAD KENNEDYS etc.)...don't be late, you don't want to miss 'em! Here's their nice raw demo:
