SATURDAY 1ST APRIL 2023; BUYATICKETFORTHISFEST.

PETROL GIRLS (No Love For A Nation)

First ever Dundee show from these radical feminist hardcore road warriors, educators, activists and inspirations; one of the sickest punk bands to emerge from europe over the last decade. Utterly essential work across the board, to be hosting them in the basement verges on the ridiculous. This is absolutely unmissable.

Be sure to join the COWPUNK BLACK BLOC if ye are heading south for the weekend.

http://batwolf.bandcamp.com/album/35-for-life

THE MARX

Dundee’s hardest working post/garage punk crew of razor-sharp political science engineers, musical mechanics and boots-on-the-ground rock’n’rollers bring the tightest manifesto and mission statement back to the basement to slap some reality into us. The future house band of the Scottish Republic are a house on fire.

SATURDAY 8TH APRIL 2023

ECHO MACHINE

Unquestionably one of the greatest bands to emerge from the underbelly of this so-called city of culture over the last five years or more, and having not played a hometown show since way before their massive European stadium tour supporting kindred spirits Placebo last autumn, it is our absolute pleasure to welcome these transcendent synth-driven space-bound goth rockers back to the basement. Should be an utter pearler of an evening. Very SPECIAL GUEST supports coming soon.

Conroy’s Basement at Rad Apples, Dundee
Doors at 8pm. £7 advanced, tenner on doors

MONDAY 10TH APRIL 2023

FRESH (england)

One of the most popular indie pop bands in the country visit Dundee for the first time as a full band together, having played with their various projects in the basement over the years. A total pleasure to finally make it happen after years of trying to make it so, Fresh peddle uplifting euphoric buzzsaw pop-punk with one eye on the stars and one foot in the gutter. They’ve worked their asses of; a slew of class releases on Specialist Subject, touring all over the place and meeting typical boneheaded bro’ness with a sneer and the contempt it deserves. Expect the raising of hell.

http://freshpunks.bandcamp.com/

CHEERBLEEDERZ (england)

Class bouncy melodic punk rock from kindred spirits, souls and bodies on Alcopop Records from London Town bring their infectious and irresistible pop-rock bangers to the basement for the first time in the company of their best pals post-Manchester Punk Festival. One of the most descriptively named bands in punk.

http://cheerbleederz.bandcamp.com/

CROCODILE TEARS

Existentialist queer emo/indie pop-punkers born from Jute City Hardcore bring it to the floor with a pair of their collective favourite bands for a Monday night raw basement throwdown. First jam “Butterflies” is a banger, grab it on Make Yer Ane Comp IX or their bandcamp.

SATURDAY 22ND APRIL 2023

“LET’S GO GOODBYE BLUE MONDAY BY GOODBYE BLUE MONDAY” PARTY

The most dangerous band in Scotland have finally killed pop-punk, have released their long-awaited debut album out into the world and would be preparing for stratospheric travels were it not for the conspiratory facts of our absurd human experience, capitalism, subsequent alienation from the products of our labour, taxes, criminal governments and outright theft. The shit truly does pour down but cowpunks abide as we’ve always done; smiling gleefully, screaming out the anthems whilst up to our necks in shite and getting the fuck on with it. A seven year gestation, this will be triggering. It may be the definitive cowpunk masterpiece. Whatever happens next, hell follows with it.

Buy the album as a digital download, on CD and pre-order the vinyl. Instant digital download with every purchase. There will only be another 100 LPs available until the vinyl delivery arrives, at which point it’s every human for themselves. Huge thanks to everyone who grabbed a Pre-Press Vinyl Pre-Order Bundle. Youse’ll be the only 100 folks on the planet to own the exclusive free CD that comes with it. Grab yours now!

http://makethatatakerecords.bandcamp.com/album/lets-go-goodbye-blue-monday-lp

WE BLESS THIS MESS (portugal)

Positive emo / punk rock goodness from these “Enlightened Fools” from Porto join the party as part of their 2023 UK Tour in support of the staggering aforementioned LP. It’s a self-aware analytical pop-punk banger with a sense of reflection, contemplation and discipline sadly absent from many of their peers. It’s our pleasure to welcome them to Dundee for the first time.

http://weblessthismess.bandcamp.com/track/enlightened-fool-full-album

SEAS, STARRY

Space exploration from the gnarliest of bleak north-eastern psychedelic punk / post-hardcore underground bunkers re-emerge from winter hibernation like a bear with a sair in need of nectar and merciful release. Running the gamut from twinkling raindrop introspection through krautrock / euro-noise to oceans of suffocating guitars, with songbird melodies and demonic howls. Simply stunning.

http://seasstarry.bandcamp.com/

NON-THREATENING BOYS (london)

Radical queer DIY anarcho indie/indie/emo pop-punk from south london make their first trip north with their allies from We Bless This Mess and Walk The Plank. The perfect basement pop band!

http://www.instagram.com/nonthreateningboys

UNBEGUN

Gruff melancholic emo-flavoured telecaster indie punk from long-serving DIY warriors keeping the embers of Edinburgh’s fragmented scenes aglow in their little corner of the world. Mind that time, eh?

http://unbegun.bandcamp.com/album/mind-the-time-3

Plus very special guests to be announced.

Conroy’s Basement at Rad Apples, Dundee
Doors at 5pm. Tenner advanced, £13 on doors if any tickets remain.
This is likely to sell out also so grab tickets asap.

SATURDAY 29TH APRIL 2023

THE ATOM AGE (usa)

Incredible driving soul garage punk rock’n’roll legends from the basements of Oakland, California come screaming back to the UK for tour, paying their very first visit to the north east of Scotland. Melding R&B, hardcore, the sonic hugeness of the E-Street Band, roots-y surf guitars and the energy of skate punk, The Atom Age have been blazing out of No-Cal for fifteen years and change. If ye feel the void left by Rocket From The Crypt and need some high-octane rock’n’roll exorcisms to cleanse your demonic soul, these are yer troops right here. Unfuckwithably righteous rock music with guts.

http://theatomage.bandcamp.com

BROKEN STORIES

After ten years of performing as a fiddle-driven acoustic duo, the brightest stars in the highland perthshire sky are now rocking as a full band with an international brigade of like-minds and connected souls, bringing fuller life to folk punk poetry. We tell truth when we write alone. We share it when we play together.

http://brokenstories.bandcamp.com/track/cabin-fever-2

Sick openers to be announced soon!

Conroy’s Basement at Rad Apples, Dundee
Doors at 8pm. £8 advanced, tenner on doors.

SUNDAY 30TH APRIL 2023

BRUISE CONTROL (manchester, TNS Records)

One of the brightest lights in the north-west of england finally make it up to Dundee after setting the rest of this archipelago ablaze over the last couple of years. One of the most engaging, energetic and unpredictable rock’n’roll bands to be spewed out of the TNS gutter in recent years, Bruise Control embrace the traditions of all schools of hardcore and punk rock, married to a love of Thin Lizzy, leaning into the rich history of the trailblazing gods of rock who paved the way for us all. Like few others, they’ve got the chops and deliver the goods, as promised by their impeccable dress-sense and lines of merchandise. The content of the record is what matters most and the debut “USELESS FOR SOMETHING” LP on TNS more than delivers the goods. Get stoked on one of the albums of the year.
http://bruisecontrol.bandcamp.com/

THE GUILLOTINES

Straight-up smash mouth antifascist street punk, ska & oi knees up with brass from the mean streets of Glasgow join Bruise Control for their Scottish sojourner and swing back into the basement after ripping it up at the tail end of last year. Old school? New school? Fuck the bullshit they teach you in school.
http://the-guillotines.bandcamp.com/

SMOKEY REAPER

The east coast’s best kept punk rock secret crawl out from their caves to deliver the most complete, succinct and all-out rocking DIY punk this side of the divide, like Dillinger Four finally booting fuck out of The Lawrence Arms for plagiarism whilst Radioactivity stick their gear in the van. Debut album coming this year on MTAT.
http://smokeyreaper.bandcamp.com/

Conroy’s Basement at Rad Apples Dundee
Doors at 6pm. £6 advanced, £8 on doors.
