Do you hate Mondays? Do you find it hard to start the week after a heavy weekend? Why don’t you go to a punk rock gig? We kicked off this week by going to the legendary 100 Club on Oxford Street where Alvin Gibbs & the Disobedient Servants were playing.

The first band of the evening was St Albans rock ‘n’ roll-with-a-punk-attitude trio Brocker. It was their debut at the 100 Club and it was nothing short of amazing! The boys gave a short, but efficient performance, throwing punk rock in our faces just the way we like it. That’s our Monday night sorted.

Criminal Mind, coming all the way from Bristol, followed on, they are the middle men between Sick Of It All, Warzone, GBH and The Damned. They play fast, they play loud and they play dirty. They are currently main guests on tour with Alvin Gibbs And The Disobedient Servants and they are on a mission to show us how it’s done across the UK and Europe.

And last, but definitely not least, we had the pleasure to discover the Disobedient Servants, formed by UK Subs and ex-Iggy Pop bassist Alvin Gibbs, along with Leigh Heggarty from Ruts DC on the guitar and Jamie Oliver from UK Subs on drums. The punk supergroup played to a packed venue, which was very heartwarming on a rainy evening. And as it was their last night of their UK tour, we really got it all! They are definitely a must-see so keep an eye out on their future tour dates and don’t say we didn’t warn you!
