Newport, South Wales Punk Rock
A rare opportunity to see Newport punk rockers Hob-Goblin
Formed in a by-gone age, when Newport had shops, clubs and a music scene that was the talk of the country. A band that everyone has heard of but very few have experienced first-hand.
A Rare local gig, and your last opportunity of the year to raise a cheer and a glass of Sherry whilst joining in on a chorus of the legendary anthem “Christmas Sucks”
Hob-Goblin have built quite an impressive C.V over the years, sharing many a stage throughout the UK with Punk rock royalty and scene legends that include in no particular order … The English Dogs, GBH, Contempt, Peter and the Test Tube Babies, Discharge, The cowboy killers, Drongos For Europe , The Vile, No Muse, They have also been rumoured to of supported and influenced The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Madonna, Black Sabbath , Chuck Berry, Mozart, Beethoven and Peter Andre.
Hob-Goblin will have a cd (it’s not an album it’s a demo) available on the night to purchase/blag or swap featuring 9 new songs that will make perfect x-mas present for your Nan and other loved ones but is also a suitable present to the ones that you hate. Please ask the band for a copy of “Long time coming”, they will probably only be too happy to assist.
Formed in 2007, and rapidly rising to Pontypool’s / South Wales premier Rock band, securing top support slots with the likes of Irish alternative metal legends Therapy? , Ricky Warwick (The Almighty), LA Guns and Blaze Bayley (Ex Iron Maiden / Wolfsbane), Zodiac mind warp, to name just a few.
Bag of Bones have always done things their own way, ignoring the trends of overly distorted guitars and screaming / shouting vocals instead enticing crowds with catchy guitar driven music with vocal lines that are audible and memorable, no gimmicks just an exciting mix of Rock/Metal with a side order of punk rock.
Forward to 2014, feeling that they had unfinished business Bag of Bones return strengthening the line up with an additional guitarist, and rehearsing new and old tunes in preparation for 2015 and what promises to be a very busy year
Bag Of Bones will be playing at Pontypool’s only real music venue on December the 12th as part of a special “Its Friday night, let’s do a gig and get hammered” night, we accordingly invite you to join in with the festive Friday fun, where you can expect good beer, hopefully some decent music (depends on the amount of good beer they sample) and good company.
Leave your inhibitions at home, forget your problems, grab your girlfriend (or someone else’s) and let’s have a laugh.
Happy Days …
