We thought we’d do something a bit different by getting more video footage from the last gig – the second Punka Presents… event. So here’s Kiss Me, Killer TV Episode 1, featuring drag queen Ruby Rawbone, The Gin Birkins and our mates The Menstrual Cramps.
The band will be supporting the incendiary MARTYRIALS at Bristol’s iconic Louisiana venue on 17 August.
MARTYRIALS is a high energy psychedelic synth-punk outfit pumping out and explosive blend of punk, glam and Rock and Roll.
Punk ethics meet space-delay driven psychedelia like if the Ramones had synthesizers or if System of a Down met the B-52’s and often compared to the erratic sounds of Cardiacs. Formed in 2015 and releasing their second studio album this year, the exciting live shows of the Martyrials are not something to be missed.
We’re delighted to feature on a brand spanking new DIY punk compilation release from the legendary Grow Your Own Records. The band lines up alongside a whole bunch of eviscerating UK and international acts that feature women in their lineups.
Grown Your Own Records is an independent DIY record label run by seminal anarchopunk band Anthrax UK, and releases records and punk artwork.
The compilation can be purchased right now from the label’s Bandcamp page for a mere 6 quid (plus p&p) so don’t miss out. The full track listing is as follows:
BIRDS OF A FEATHER VOL 2
2 ZERO HOUR
3 ZOMBIE MET GIRL
4 BRAIN ANGUISH
5 KISS ME, KILLER
6 PROUD CITY FATHERS
10 JESUS FIX

16 IN-ERRRANT FEATURING ANDY T

20 ARMOURED FLU UNIT
21 THE BLACK DEATH
Thanks to Cooper Rose we’ve now got a cool intro video. Filmed by Cooper during our appearance at Umlaut Records’ Dugstock II fest at London’s legendary New Cross Inn, some clever aiding has made us look like one of those bands you just have to check out.
The unbelievable multi-talented Cooper also plays and sings with The Menstrual Cramps and well as recording and producing their records. She’s also a part of the supercool Bad Sidekick, who’ll be realising an EP later in 2018, which is one to look out for.
The video’s already clocked up hundreds of views on the Kiss Me, Killer Facebook page and you can view a YouTube version right here:
It’s taken us a while but we’re finally playing Exeter at the famous Cavern club on 15 May. The gig, entitled, All in Riot Grrrl, will feature some of the best in punk rock from the West Country, including Bristol legends Drunken Butterfly and Bath’s top feminist anti-folk exponent, Yonic.
Tickets are available for a mere £4, on sale at The Cavern Club and from this website: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/437086
