Following last years hit show ‘Beyond Punk’, Signal Gallery has invited Gaye Advert to curate another show to showcase the work of Punk musicians.

During the show every Saturday the gallery will be taken over by the artists in the show doing what they’re famous for – performance. Every Saturday during the show, free sets will be performed

Last night you missed The Near Future quirky electronic duo (with Tony Barber from The Buzzcocks) and Dic Yorke (from Cryssis, power pop) acoustic sets 2.30 and 4.00

BUT… There are still three shows to check out, with Thee Spivs playing next Saturday, 3rd Dec

10th December is the turn of Jowe Head and the Demi Monde who will perform a selection of new songs, old songs, and experimental pieces, a smaller line-up than recent concerts, using mainly acoustic instruments with electronica. Jowe will be joined by Catherine Gerbrands (vocals and electronics) and Tim Bowen (cello).

The December 10th performance will prove punks can do Christmas with the first live airing of “Ode to Krampus”, a seasonal offering about a pagan demon from Germanic folklore who punishes naughty children, as well as a rendition of “Eine Stuhl in der Holle”, (“A Chair in Hell”) originally recorded by Einsturzende Neubaten, to be sung in English.

The final performance will be from Knox, frontman from the Vibrators and Charlie Harper, frontman of UK Subs doing a unique acoustic set together
