Boomtown 2017 Devil Kicks Dancehall

Posted on June 13th, by Henry_Planet909 in News. Comments Off on Boomtown 2017 Devil Kicks Dancehall

Yes peeps, this year we play the almighty festival that is Boomtown.

If you haven’t been to this festival yet then you absolutely should!

3 days of pure hedonistic fun in an incredible venue that is in itself a work of art, with amazing stages and fantastic music.

We are playing in the Devil Kicks Dancehall which is in the downtown area on the Sunday evening.

The music at Boomtown focuses on the electronic side of music, expect to find Psy Trance, Old Skool, Hardcore, Drum and Bass, Jungle, Techno, Hard Tek, Ragga Tek, and all sorts of sub genres, also live music is very important as it started life as a dub & ska festival so expect to find Dub sound systems, live reggae and ska and of course some alternative and punk to round things off.

On top of all that there are … Read More »

Back To The Planet – Kick Out EP

Back To The Planet
Kick Out EP – Buy On Our Shop

Back to the Planet are an independent, hard to define, dub, crusty, punk, ska band who started their career in the squats of London and on the Free Festival circuit in the golden era of the new age travelers in the late 1980’s.

They have been reformed since 2008 and have been playing a handful of Festivals and packed out London dates every year.

The band stepped up their game this year with the recording of an EP of 4 blazing new tracks, which were recorded in the studios of two of the members of the band who have both gone on to work as well known electronic music producers. Naturally some of that influence is in the recording, but this is a live performing band, and the record is intended to … Read More »

Surplus Festival

Posted on July 9th, by Henry_Planet909 in News. Comments Off on Surplus Festival

Wicked little festival in South Wales, bang next door to Cardiff airport. I drove down there with Fil for the Sunday session and once we got through the trailer park to the field out the back we discovered a great little festival going on. Just a few hundred people, with a loveley vibe, great weather, and good music. Met up with some old mates, had a great chat with the RDF gang who we’ve not seen for a while but will be running into again soon at various places around the UK this summer.

if you haven’t been to Surplus fesitval and you like the idea of old skool bands fomr the traveler era plus new school punk rock and even a bit of folk, get yourself along there.



The Lexington London

Posted on March 31st, by Henry_Planet909 in News. Comments Off on The Lexington London

What a night! fantastic stuff from the support of Ex Carter USM aka Abdoujaparov and Doozer McDooze. Big thanks and hugs and all that go out to Grant & Jayne Holby for putting on the night. Thanks to everyone who showed up it was a brilliant turn out. The sound engineeer did an excellent job of tuning into our sound, and the Lexington is a great boozer in general which I would like to visit on a non-gig night someday. Here’s a few pics from our Facebook page.
