I returned to the UK towards the end of last year after spending years in Asia where there was very little punk scene. To make up for the lack of gigs I made it my mission to attend as many as possible this year; and what a bloody years its been. Some excellent shows took place in the diy scene here and there where some great releases. Here are some of my favourites in no particular order. Check them out below.

Japanese hardcore punks Reality Crisis are heading to the UK to play three shows this month! Joining them will be Scottish punk act Sedition which is also a rare treat! Other great bands will be playing the shows including Doom, Cress, Anti-System and Bratakus. The show at the 1 in 12 club has already sold out (no suprise, what a line up!) Here are the details of the shows:
Nov 17th – DIY Space – London
Nov 18th – 1 in 12 Club – Bradford
Nov 19th – The Lughole – Sheffield

Bratakus are one of my new favourite bands at the moment, so what a treat to find they released an EP on Halloween! “Ghouls To The Front” contains two new songs, one of which pays tribute to their favourite horror movie (and one of mine) Evil Dead. Listen to it below.
The band released “Target Grrrl” in August which is one of the best albums of the year so far in my opinion. So check them out! You can also find a list of November gigs below!

Kicking the night off with a belter of a record! Bratakus are a two piece Scottish punk act that are well worth your attention! The two sisters play straight up bratty punk rock that’s full of attitude. I must say it’s one of the best records I’ve heard in the last couple of months and I can’t wait to catch them playing in Sheffield next month. I’ve heard they do a great cover of “Animals and Two Veg” by crust legends Cress as well. So take some time out of your day and give “Target Grrrl” a listen below. Underneath you can also find a list of upcoming gigs.
