No Lip at the UXB10 Festival.
We made it out for the night!
I've been looking forward to this for months; Pete Corse of 'No Lip' and his friends organised a two day festival in Uxbridge to raise money for the Macmillan Nurses and to give local bands a new venue.
We got a big stage, speakers and monitors....everything;
And all the proceeds went to a very good cause;
We got there late (I'm still a bit crotchety at the moment) but we were there in time to see 'Holy Faction' who played alternative punk and we liked them a lot;
This is 'Dog Rotten', young and full of action;
But I have to admit the highlight for me was 'No Lip', which shouldn't be any surprise if you've read this Blog for any time;
Straight forward punk sung at the top of it's voice in 3 minute bursts;
The band were a blast, even if the mikes were playing up by this time.
This is Pete Corse, who deserves a big thank you for putting on such a great night;
And it really was a blast, as you can see;
Last band on were 'Rage DC';
We ended up staggering home at 12-30, at which time I could have done with my own personal Macmillan Nurse.
The second night is tonight; £3-00 on the door and 7 (yes 7!) bands including 'Girl in the Garden', who I've reviewed here before
I may not make that but if you're free it will be good.....it's at The Battle of Britain Club, Hillingdon Road, Uxbridge.
