Discharge

A British hardcore punk band formed in 1977 by Terry "Tezz" Roberts and Roy "Rainy" Wainwright. They are often considered among one of the very first bands to play hardcore punk.
The band's music is characterized by a heavy, distorted, and grinding guitar-driven sound and rawly shouted vocals, with lyrics on anarchist and pacifist themes.

The band's first album in 1982, Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing, went to number two on the UK Indie charts and number 40 in the UK Album Chart. In the early 1980s, the group had a number of singles and EPs place in the top 10 of the UK indie charts, including the 1981 EP Why(#1) and the 1982 single State Violence State Control.

Discharge's music influenced hardcore punk, thrash metal, crust punk, grindcore and various extreme metal subgenres. The most well-known thrash metal bands covering Discharge songs include Metallica, Anthrax, and Sepultura.

With support from:

dragSTER

dragSTER bleed and sweat a rock n roll intensity that anyone lucky enough to witness them live will attest to
Formed in the dirty back streets of Coventry, disenchanted with the watered down piss of popular music dragSTER went into a cycle of relentless writing and touring. Within a year of forming they had been produced by Rat Scabies (THE DAMNED) and were managed by Jah Wobble (PIL).

Singer Fi was invited to front the world renowned musical collective PIGFACE on a 40 date US tour.
Four studio albums and hundreds of live shows under their belt including festivals in the UK and Europe mean dragSTER have built up a huge following of loyal fans. dragSTER hold up a mirror to the world, a sleazy, distorted, broken mirror.
