Brighton Calling: Strummerville Benefit, Komedia in Brighton

Strummerville Benefit Komedia, Brighton 2014

Strummerville Benefit Komedia, Brighton 2014

In January 2003, just days after Joe’s death, a group of Brighton fans of Joe, young and old, put together a small event to mark his passing and to celebrate the life of this inspirational musician and campaigner.

Eleven years on, it has become one of the best-established Joe Strummer annual events, raising money for the Strummerville Foundation and keeping the spirit of Joe alive and well on the South Coast.

2014′s event will be back at the Komedia in Brighton on the 4th January and the ragged army will once again raise a glass to Joe and the lasting influence that he has on our culture and our politics.

Headlining the night once again are Take The 5th, who cover Clash songs from Janie Jones through to Mescaleros-era Coma Girl. Taking their name from the title given by The Clash to their second US tour in 1979, Take The 5th have been gigging for years, with their blend of rock and reggae recapturing the unique mood of the most vibrant of times. They are supported by the Ramona’s …..all girl Ramones tribute.


Edinburgh Strummerville Benefit Gig

Edinburgh Strummerville Benefit Gig

Edinburgh Calling: Desperation AM are a bitter sweet punk rock with a guitar sound in the vein of early PIL, featuring Paul Research formerly of 80’s innovators The Scars on violin and keyboards.

Babylon Dub Punks are a rare punk, dub, reggae hybrid, loose cannons on the local scene, transcending musical boundaries since 1977.

Critikill are fast and furious melodic punk rock at its best.

Glassface are a “rock n roll” wall of sound and a tempo that never lets up.

Dapitz Punk are an old school punk band, recollecting those halcyon early days where every single was a blast of fresh air with attitude.

The Threats know there way round the stage, consequently they are an amazing band live.

Recently turning heads locally are Molotov, as the name suggests, explosive and committed.

The Black Charge are new on the scene featuring, featuring Lizzie Fox (from the infamous Seafield Foxes) expect the unexpected!

We are quite chuffed with what we have put together in such a short space of time, many thanks to Full Moon Promotions, who do it for the music not the money.

Mary Venhelsing who puts on great events in the city, always giving new bands a platform for all the right reasons.

Thanks to Banshee Labyrinth, Shaun Taylor, Stephen Fraser and Junco Partner for a few hours graft behind the scenes to tie everything in.

Hope as many of you from South East Scotland can make it and raise as much as we can for Strummerville while remembering the passionate, principled, genius that was Joe Strummer.
