No Nation Punk presents:
1919 plus support
1919 + Who Killed Nancy Johnson? + THE GO GO CULT + Darklands DJ Set by Steve Reynolds
1919 were an early contributor to what became the Goth genre. They had chart success with the singles “Caged”, “Repulsion” and “Cry Wolf” as well as the 1984 LP “Machine”, and recorded two Peel Sessions.
In 2014, founding guitarist Mark Tighe reformed the band, including original drummer Mick Reed. Two European tours and a host of festival appearances later, 1919 signed a deal with Westworld Recordings in 2016 to release a new album, “Bloodline”, 35 years after their first.
Sadly in January 2017 Tighe lost a short battle with cancer, leaving a chasm at the heart of the band. Having insisted the others carry on in his absence though, Mick, Rio, and Karl had to do justice to the album, and to the memory of their fallen comrade.
Bloodline was released to critical acclaim in 2017. “Good goths come to those that wait,” wrote Vive le Rock’s Pete Woods in an 8/10 review, while LouderThanWar said, “‘Bloodline’ will bewitch you“, and Sonic Seducer called its “nightmarish-hypnotic gloom” a “fitting tribute” to Tighe’s legacy. In April that year the band confirmed that Sam Evans would be their new full-time guitarist, and began touring the new album to rave reviews.
In 2018 Bloodline was released on limited edition red vinyl, featuring two additional tracks ("D.N.A" and "A Hymn to the Night") recorded with Mark, and the band are already confirmed for major festival appearances in 2019. This is a rare chance to see them up close in a small venue.

"A brilliant band... full of energy... a really cool post-punk feel" - New Music Saturday

Most recently (September 2018) they released a single, They Reap, for Musicians Against Homelessness. A vinyl release via Sounds of the Suburbs is incoming late 2018/early 2019.

THE GO GO CULT – PRESS PACK
Formed in 2010 and hailing from Reading, we are the Go Go Cult. Our mission is to spread our distinctive and Wild brand of sleazy Hypnotic 50s psycho-delic garage punk and to warp minds with our infectious rhythms wherever we appear. “……..The chemical mix is explosive. And it will shake your pants.” Raw Ramp Mag, July 2012 This is us: Go Go Nige: Voice of the dead, hypnotic rhythm, tremolo and fuzz guitar Go Go Matt: Ambassador of screaming lead guitar and werewolf howls Go Go Johnny: Hypno rhythm and voodoo beats (Ex Vibes/Purple Things) Go Go Leo: Chief of the low end swamp bass rumble and banshee screams
Music genres: Alternative garage punk, psychobilly, surf, rockabilly, trash “Dealing in’ 80s sleaze, ‘50s swagger and ‘70s salaciousness, Reading’s The Go Go Cult are an ambitious upcoming band with their fingers in a number of musical pies……..” Tom Williams, Vive Le Rock Magazine
Who do we sound like? Think the Cramps, Rezillos, Link Wray, The Tall Boys/Early Meteors a bit of surf guitar (Dick Dale and the Del-Tones, The Surfaris) with a touch of Johnny Cash and Siouxsie mixed in. “50s psychedelic punk, anyone? Yes. Go Go Cult sound like being in a 1950s motorbike gang in America, pushed to the musical limits from the constant threat of nuclear holocaust.” Tim Hooper for BBC Introducing @ The Oakford Social Club.
