OH! GUNQUIT + BONES SHAKE
Other Side Promotions are extremely excited to present London garage RocknRollers Oh! Gunquit.
Plus very special guests: Bones Shake (Manchester) OH! GUNQUIT London based 5-piece Oh! Gunquit, are a band of Exotic Sci-Fi Surf-Punk Freaks who concoct a wild brew of Gloriously Trashy RocknRoll. The nucleus of the group started after Tina (Vocals) & Simon (Guitar) became neighbours and after frequenting the same sweaty cellar dance nights around town they formed the group creating a vibrant blend of fiery Garage-Rock/Surf-Punk/Exotica crossover. Oh! Gunquit are named in part to a town in Maine US which was an artists colony in the 1800's originally coined by the Abenaki Indians and in part to the idea of all guns quitting. Currently consisting of the finest line-up to date this creature contains members from USA, Colombia, Spain & UK. The Soundtrack to B-Movies, Road Trips, & Adventuring…..Their unique live gigs are a blur of Howling Vox, Buzzsaw Guitars, Sleazy Horns, Rumbling Toms, and Crazed R&R fun.'

"OGQ are a refreshingly non-stop party of sound; a melting pot of rock n roll voodoo madness and pure unadulterated aural expression, perhaps the perfect soundtrack to a hedonistic roadtrip yet to be made. Mixing The Cramps and The B-52's and putting their own stamp on it" -Vive Le Rock Magazine "Strong purveyors of vicious & exotic raw pop music" - Rough Trade "Big fun for the fans of Trashy, Theatrical, Rock n Roll Thrills!" ***** Shindig Magazine 'Song after song twists and wraps itself around your ears shaking a rhythm down to your feet. Track by Track each is faultless' ****** Louder Than War: 'Ten sizzlin' slabs of rockabilly/garage/r&b crossover that will hook the listener with it's Variety, High Energy, and Memorable Melodies' **** Bananas Magazine: "They call themselves Rumble-Bop which in some way does explain the fantastic sound they have" - Gideon Coe BBC6 Music VIDEOS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRiaEFT6PCo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PFRcIQ6xTI https://youtu.be/1HhP-fjAECA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g79cydflAb8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKo4PGBITRA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjMjEyFIFf8 www.youtube.com/watch?v=lX8jwIw3vqc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkLCGut-cms www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmPhJq-HSCA www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwRrgUnVg8w
BONES SHAKE Bio: Bones Shake are a scuzzed, fuzzed, garage rock three piece formed in 2011 in Manchester. They play everything into the red; violent bottle neck blues riffs, drums kicked, pounded and twatted and squeals of reverb drenched vocals all combine to help save your soul. Since they started, they’ve never taken a rest from playing around the UK either as Headliners or supporting bands (Black Lips, King Brothers, Walter Lure, Guitar Wolf, Jim Jones Revue...). They have also been in high demand in Europe where they have toured numerous times including a tour of prisons in France and more recently at last year’s sold out Raut Oak festival in Germany. They have released 4 EPs and 3 LPs so far. Their last single was released in Europe via Never Trust Hippies records and their latest album, Sermons, was released in May 2019 on Manchester’s Abattoir Blues label to much critical acclaim. FFO: The Stooges, The Cramps, The Birthday Party “This musical entity is probably the closest I’ve seen to embodying rock and roll in its rawest, provocative form.” (Silent Radio) Links: https://www.facebook.com/BonesShake https://abattoirblues.bandcamp.com/ Video Links: Unwell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EM28oyU0gW8 Hey Hey: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xchiXE2bgVw
