In early 2004, a time when the country was undergoing rapid and ill-fated development, Kostas and Geom, two 20 year olds with a desire to communicate and break the daily grind, brought about the formation of the Bad Movies. Two riffs, a few lyrics, lots of alcohol and energy, and the way was paved for the new band who played rock and seethed punk.
Since they already had 5 years under their belts playing together with the group Enochlisi (Disturbance) it wasn’t much of a challenge to get a couple more like minded musicians together for the new bands debut performance at the squat Street Attack. The lineup was Petros on bass, Teo vocals, Geom guitar and Kostas on the drums. They began by covering songs by The New York Dolls, Slaughter and the Dogs, The Clash, Social Distortion and Eddie and the Hotrods, as well as their own compositions.

Kalashnikov were born in 1996 on the dirty floor of a squat in Milan, to give vent to the adolescent restlessness of three guys with their ears clogged by Wretched, Bad Religion and Clash. Under the drunkenness of the heavenly libertarian nectar and rejecting the ruling alternative thrash music, Kalashnikov are created with the wish to put together their own utopias and passion. Through the years there were many changes either in the line-up, or in our music and our lyrics, but anyway some features have lasted: Kalashnikov have always played a concentration of melodic and fast music with high libertarian spirit, following the path of DIY.

Doom began as The Subverters with Bri Doom (guitar), Jon Pickering (bass/vocals) and Jason (Hog) Hodges (drums). About the time Hog was replaced by new drummer, Mick Harris (Napalm Death), the band changed its name to DOOM...
This line up played one or two gigs, playing in a crossover metal style. Bri and Jon decided this wasn't the direction they wanted the band to move in. Consequently they left Harris and the metal style of music, and decided to go in a Discharge-influenced crust-punk-style that Doom became known for. Pickering dropped bass to concentrate on vocals and Pete Nash joined as bass player. Harris left for Napalm Death so new drummer 'Stick', recently made band-less, joined after a drunken meeting at the infamous Mermaid Pub, this was when the 'real' Doom was formed. The band started rehearsing with this line-up in mid 1987...
About this time a small label called Peaceville Records was starting up. They heard about Doom through word of mouth and asked if they were interested in contributing songs to the first peaceville compilation A Vile Peace. Doom went into the studio to record their first demo on 28 August 1987. Nash unfortunately broke his wrist just before Doom's recording debut, so bass player Jim Whitley (of Napalm Death and Ripcord Fame) filled in on the recording. Three songs were recorded (two of which appeared on A Vile Peace)...
On the strength of this first recording Peaceville asked Doom if they would record a full LP for them, which they agreed to do. The "War is Big Business" demo was recorded on 27 November 1987, which the band sold as a cassette at gigs. In February 1988, Doom went into "Rich Bitch" studios and recorded 21 songs for their debut album "War Crimes (Inhuman Beings)". All this time the band gigged constantly in the UK building up a following on the way. Another demo "Domesday" was also produced...
At the end of 1988, due to personal commitments Bri announced that he would be leaving the band. He stayed long enough to record the split LP "Bury the Debt - Not the Dead" (with Swedish band No Security) on the Peaceville label. The "Police Bastard" EP (on discarded records) was also recorded at the same session. Doom were also invited to record two sessions for Radio One's John Peel show around this point. Bri left the band in April 1989 after completing a lengthy European tour...
Doom continued with different guitarists but did not settle with four members, so Pickering turned to vocal and guitar duties. This line up continued until a final split in August 1990. Following the group's demise Pickering formed Police Bastard, whilst drummer Stick joined Extreme Noise Terror then DIRT...
The band reformed in 1992 with the earlier line up of Bri, Jon, Pete and Stick. They toured Japan and recorded a 12" of new songs released on the label Vinyl Japan. This proved to be the last recording with this line up. About this point the band almost folded but Bri and Stick decided to continue with two new members. These being Tom Croft from Genital Deformities on vocals and Paul "Mall" Mallen on bass guitar. This line up recorded the split album with Selfish and a split 7" EP with Hiatus. Mall left shortly afterwards (an amicable parting). He was replaced by bassist Scoot from Largactyl...
This line up recorded the split 7" EP Doomed to Extinction with Extinction of Mankind, the Fuck Peaceville double LP, and the Hail to Sweden 7" EP. This is also the line up who appear on the Videodoom video on MCR recorded on a European tour in 1994..
A tour of Scandinavia was organised for September 1995, however Scoot decided not to go due to problems at home, so he was replaced by Denis (of Blood Sucking Freaks) & permanently by Chris Gascoigne (of Suffer) after the tour. Tom Croft also left just before the tour and he was replaced by Wayne Southworth (also of Blood Sucking Freaks). While on the Scandinavian tour Doom recorded the Monarchy Zoo 7" EP at Sunlight Studios...
The band, now comprised of Stick, Bri, Denis, Wayne and Chris. They went into the studio in June 1996 and recorded a full LP for Flat Earth, called "Rush Hour of the Gods". In 97 the band recorded again for Flat Earth the split 10" with CRESS & in 2001 the last full length LP entitled "World of Shit" on Vinyl Japan Recs..
DOOM continued again with Bri, Stick, Wayne and Andy Irvine (ex DISAFFECT, SCATHA and DEVILS).
....On March 18, 2005 Wayne Southworth (lead singer) died at his home. The cause of death was an epileptic seizure.....

The Los Fastidios sound is a powerful melodic streetpunk which mixes classical 80’s British Punk-OI ! sounds with skanking, rock'n'roll and hardcore rythms, sung in Italian with some touches of english, french and spanish languages.
The lyrics come from the most cheerful street situations to more serious and involved matters which deal with social problems, such as battles against racism-fascism and any form of discrimination, for the animal rights, for freedom and against the capitalistic system...
These last years, Los Fastidios have archieved great number of anti-racist intiatives and social causes,by taking part in various support gigs with collections in favour of Chiapas, for the workers, against racism, for the animal rights, against war, against capitalism and neoliberism, etc...
Over the last years, Los Fastidios have made a lot of tours, thanks to which they travelled all over Italy, but also in Germany, France, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia, Croatia, Slovakia, England, Belgium, Spain, Hungary, Denmark, Slovenia, Serbia, Euskadi, Sweden, Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Eire, Ulster, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia, Greece and Canada.Thanks to these gigs the band received very good reviews. ..
The band shared the bill with great bands such as Angelic Upstarts, The Oppressed, Rancid, Lagwagon, Cock Sparrer, Red London, Business, Slackers, 999, Undertones, UK Subs, Vibrators, Subhumans, Dr Ring Ding, Zona A, Harries, Bouncing Souls, Movement, The Boys, Mad Sin, Real Mc Kenzies, Klasse Kriminale, Mr Review, Stage Bottles, 8°6 Crew, Goldblade, Brigada Flores Magon, Gbh, Oxymoron, Antinowhere League, Cramps, Stranglers, Argies, Lurkers, Splodgenessabounds, Buzzcocks, Ska-P, ecc. and many many more... .. ..

The Half-Wits are an English hardcore punk band, formed in 2010 in Canterbury, Kent. The group was founded by former Nothing To Prove members Tadhg Leahy, Dubhan Leahy and Jake Mcaulay. They recruited their friend Konrad Harris play bass. A few years on Jake left the band and Eddie Wonkey took over on guitar. Early in 2015 John Huffman joined on second guitar to round out their sound for a tour of France.
Since 2010, The Half-Wits have taken their sound up and down the country to every corner of England and into Europe. They've been anywhere and everywhere that mohawks create a skyline in musty basements, where people are thirsty for social justice and cheap pints in equal measure, and where friendships and subcultures meet to have a few laughs.
On first glance you would be forgiven for thinking that these guys and their fans are foul mouth yobs out to cause trouble (foul mouth may be right when it comes to the lyrics of course...) But this is exactly the type of generalization that gives certain genres an unfair and misunderstood reputation. It is hard and brutal music with even more brutal moves on the dance floor, but this does not mean that it follows the stereotype. These guys are anti-fascists, skaters, artists, working class heroes, and five friends crying out for the world to stop social injustice and inequality.
Konrad Harris - Bass/Vocals
Jak Collins - Guitar
Dubhan Leahy - Drums
