On Friday September 18th, Asylum at Live Lounge presents another brilliant show featuring four bands of quality and distinction.

Hold Your Fire! is a five-piece rock band with influences such as Rise Against, Strung Out, Ten Foot Pole and A Wilhelm Scream. They are currently recording their album entitled Ink Ribbon which is due for completion by the end of 2009. Hold Your Fire! are James Pallot (vocals), Chris Day (bass and vocals), James Day (guitar), Daniel Allman (guitar) and Chris Reed (drums).

Gorey Inbreds are psychedelically informed explorers of a dubious realm where hip hop, funk, country, and wanton carelessness meet. The results are the most fun it is possible to imagine. Gorey Inbreds, as their name suggests, come from a wild, backward zone of Jersey known as Gorey, and their membership is Sir Oliver Andrew Clark Kent, Lord Ryan Alexander De Jersey Douglas, Harry, BB … possibly some special guests too. They claim that anyone who lives in the Gorey area, and isn’t ginger, can be a part of their group.

The Underground were started in late 2008 by Liam Coles and James Perchard. Harry Bartlett joined the band to form a classic triumvirate. They say their aim is to put on a good show and have a laugh. In August 2009 they announced they are recording their EP at Wavesound Studios and the tracks on it shall be called Kick It, Blackjack Dealer, Pulse, and Giving It All.

The Underground won the final of Jersey’s Junior Battle of the Bands 2009. Read about their success in that competition at BBC Jersey Introducing’s Dirty Rock ‘n’ Roll at Battle Final.

The Revolt is a punk band that sets itself apart from what is seen to be a dominance of emo and metal bands in Jersey. The track Do 1, an eight second long micro-anthem of alienation, is an example of their uncompromising approach and possibly an expression of dissatisfaction with a scene that has often prized hipness over integrity. The Revolt are Adam Bouteloup (lead guitar and backing vocals), Jack Pallot (drums), Tom Videira (vocals and rhythm guitar), and Max Wiltshire (bass and backing vocals).

  1. Yeee ha!! Can’t wait for this one, should be epic.

  2. Not long now, see you all down there!
