COMPLETING FRIDAYS LINE UP – The Undercover Festival nr Bisley in Surrey (2014 #2)
We are pleased to announce GENTLEMENS DUB CLUB to headline the Main Stage on the Friday for Undercover Festival 2014
Anyone who saw DREADZONE @ 2013 and liked them will absolutely love these guys
Gentleman’s Dub Club is a nine-piece band that formed in Leeds in early 2006. With a style based in dub, ska and roots reggae, GDC have burst onto the UK circuit, rocking gigs and festivals up and down the country with their super high energy show. Combining tight grooves and a heavyweight sound, Gentleman’s Dub Club bring the party to crowds of all ages hungry for a dance floor workout, with their gigs often ending in a frenzied mosh pit reminiscent of a mid 80’s ska night. Live effects and mixing make for a crystal clear sound, and the band’s larger than life stage presence makes for a mesmerising experience.
Think Dreadzone but younger with a twist?
Having built a reputation on consistently delivering one of the most energetic and exhilarating live shows to emerge from the UK music scene, the Gents’ antics have seen them astound crowds from Goa to Glastonbury, Boomtown, Bestival, V Fest, Secret Garden Party and Poland’s Ostroda Reggae Festival, not to mention the biggest bass-music’ festival in the world – Croatia’s Outlook Festival.
Their records remain securely within the top 40 of the album reggae charts since release, hailing support from some of the UK’s most prominent underground representatives including Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1), Rob Da Bank (BBC Radio 1), David Rodigan (BBC 1XTRA ) and Don Letts (BBC Radio 6 music).
Gentleman’s Dub Club have supported a number of established artists such as Roots Manuva, The Streets, The Wailers, Busy Signal, U-Roy, and Finlay Quaye.
It’s going to be another lively Friday night at Undercover!! SEE YOU DOWN THE FRONT!!
We are pleased to be able to welcome Spizz and the band to Undercover to close Stage II on the Friday!! AND boy are you in for a treat..
Spizzenergi formed in the late 1970s, led by Spizz. The band changed its name every year, subsequent names including Athletico Spizz 80, Spizzoil and The Spizzles. They are notable as the first band to top the newly created UK Indie Chart early in 1980.However, they were perhaps best known for their single “Where’s Captain Kirk?” (live in 2010 below) More than two decades after its release, it was included in Mojo magazine’s list of the best punk rock singles of all time.
2014 marks the 35th anniversary since those heady days where Spizz formed the band, yes there have been numerous changes to the band but what has not changed is the show you will witness at Undercover one that is relentless, pure theatre and great fun.
One of the best showmen on the scene today..
That’s it for the headline and main bands for Undercover 2014s line up announcements…
We have made every effort to keep the buzz that was special in 2013 and make this festival that bit different.
Please note: For the avoidance of any doubt The Undercover Festival is not an open air festival – the festival will be held in 2 rooms plus other areas at the Bisley Pavilion nr Woking Surrey – undercover by nature of the music policy of this festival and undercover – well because it is….
