Our recent recommendations for The Golden Lion
Double demented Dead Kennedys action from Drunken Sailor gonzo chain punk darlings Chain Whip. Serving nihilistic hxc with vital spitting venom for the 1% on top of another raging Shitty Futures quadruple bill. Essential FFO: Suburban Mutilation, China White, Poison Idea, Circle Jerks.
Hardcore punk up the Gloucester Road
Sell out warning! Everything Jim Jones touches turns to swampy gold. Now backed by a full horn section, he can still spew the finest punk rock blues and garage gospel with the swagger of the UK’s greatest undead Jerry Lee Lewis.
In support of their brand new album "Ain't No Peril" rock n roll at its finest
Even by Shitty Futures’ standards, this is particularly ugly. Monumental crust/doom/death offering topped by nihilistic Italian stenchcore merchants Cancer Spreading and blistering speed metal crossover crusts GEVÄL. Proper pack of rotters FFO: Axegrinder, Entombed, Bolt Thrower, Amebix, Deviated Instinct.
Hardcore Punk, Sludge, Crust & Doom at the Golden Lion
The devil works hard but Shitty Futures work harder! Gifting us whip-fast UK82-style abrasive tradcrust from Chicago’s Mock Execution to soundtrack your mid-week chaos pit. Plus fuzzy Philly garage-hardcore from Delco MFs (ft Dark Thoughts’ Jim Shomo) and blistering Bristol stompers Gimic. FFO Destruct, Yambag, Illiterates.
US hardcore punk bands in Bristol plus support
None meaner than the Deaner! If you’re still standing after the annual DLH madness, head to Golden Lion for a Shitty Future rollover ft. snotty skate punk attitude from dungeon-synth indebted eggy power-punkers Powerplant, 90s crossover grind-punk LEGENDS Disassociate (somehow blessing us from Brooklyn) + Fuk, People Eater and Havaat.
Powerplant, Disassociate (US), FUK & more
