Releasing their latest full length “White Collar Thugs” in 2015 and with pure quality in their back catalogue these Karlskrona veterans show no signs of slowing down. Playing shows all over Sweden and Europe these guys will show you how it’s done. Get ready to move and sing a long, it’s time for some proper Rock n’ Oi!
What’s it like being a concert photographer?
Surely, you’ve seen them – the guys and girls with their cameras, working in front of the stage or in the middle of the crowd. It looks like a glamorous job, doesn’t it, to make your living going to concerts and taking pictures. Have you ever wondered what it’s like? I have. I called Josh Sisk, who is a concert photographer from Baltimore, USA, for a conversation about the life of a professional concert photographer. We talked about his background, the lifestyle, funny anecdotes and Josh shared some tips for those wanting to get better photos from concerts with their phone cameras. Josh also gave some tips on how to get started as a concert photographer yourself if you’re ready for the challenge. Here’s the story:
Influenced by classic oi! bands such as Komintern Sect this Stockholm quartet has French frontman Olivier delivering rough lyrics in his native tongue . With members from bands such as Avgå! and Multi Culti Trash you know that you’re getting quality from the very start. On stage for the second time ever, this is the new breed!
Last playing at Pretty Shitty Kjell in 2014 this eight (or are they four? six? no one really knows) piece gang from Stockholm is back for more. With melodies that will get stuck in your head for days and lyrics above the average this bunch has something for everyone. The streets will surely be on fire in May!
Helsinki’s The Pistones come to Stockholm for a party. Influenced by bands like The Clash, Cock SParrer and Hanoi Rocks they play their own mix of punk, glam and rock n’ roll. With a debut album released not so long ago, for the first time in Sweden, The Pistones will show you that Combat rock is still alive!
Influenced by band like Bad brains and Discharge, Crude Society System from Norberg/Fagersta formed in the early 80’s. With just one 7” and a couple of compilations in their catalogue they have made marks in the Swedish punk scene that are present to this very day. Fast, loud, pure punk attitude, expect mayhem!
From the dirty south comes the new breed of Swedish Streetpunk. Quickly making a name for themselves throughout Europe with their sing-along choruses at some of the biggest shows out there, including the 2016 edition of Pretty Shitty Kjell. Smelling of beer and football terraces and with a brand new EP in Swedish just out, Lost Warning will surely leave no one disappointed.
Lost warning will be playing at the PSK pre-party on May 25, 2017.
The relatively new band B Squadron from Leicester released their debut vinyl in 2015. Rock solid oldschool Oi!, towards the early 4-Skins with dirtier sound, B Squadron is going to make every bootboy happy. No hand-claps or troubadours – just pure impact!
Headbutt, Kick, never stop beating! Yeah, what can be said about these angry Swedes that hasn’t already been said? The likes of a more pacey live performance is hard to come by and we at PSK just love it when a finger is raised to the skies against everything and everyone. This is the third time that Gatans Lag visits us, and we know that many will welcome them with a hearty finger in the skies. Hate people!
The trend maker HC/Metal band Sheer Terror from New York City formed as early as 1984. After a couple of ‘sleepy years’ in the beginning of the 2000’s, they released their sixth album in 2014 where the only original member, singer Paul Bearer, is still active. We are more than pleased to get a visit this by heavy HC band that contributes to what PSK is all about. Unite the Scene!
