Dirty Water Club & Weirdsville Present: The Jackets, The Bucky Rage, Fryd Chikin – LIVE @ Nambucca, London
* The Jackets (only UK show) *
The Jackets are a dynamic Garage-Punk-Psych-Freakbeat trio based in Bern, Switzerland featuring incomparable frontwoman Jack Torera on guitar and lead vocals, Chris Rosales on drums and Samuel ‘Schmidi’ Schmidiger on bass. The band formed in 2007 and have released three full length LP’s – Stuck Inside (Subversiv Records 2009), Way Out (Soundflat Records 2012) and Shadows Of Sound (Voodoo Rhythm Records 2015).
The Jackets spend most of their time on the road and have toured regularly in most every country in Western Europe including Scandinavia and the U.K and are well known on the European Garage Rock circuit playing at some of the most well-known festivals, and recently completed their first tour of North America.
The band is known for their high energy stage shows combining 60’s Garage, Mod, ’77 Punk, Psychedelia and their devotion to bands like The MC5, The Monks and The Music Machine.
Scotland’s premier masked marauders return with their own unique punktrashfuzzedrock’n’roll sound, otherwise known as mayhem!
* FRYD CHIKIN *
Mystery man Fryd Chikin, his two chords, and his drum machine burp their way thru deep fryd rock n roll, BBQ soul and greasy punk goodness. The whispered resemblance between the fried chicken-obsessed Fryd Chikin and transplanted Kiwi punk Jack Caveman is absurd and should be ignored.
DJs Mr A & Miss A (Weirdsville) & PJ (Dirty Water) till 2:30 am
The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club’s name is derived from The Standells’ 1966 hit ‘Dirty Water’ which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.

The club has also seen some original ’60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.
Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
