THE CHARITY:
CASA ALIANZA-Separated from their families many street children end up sleeping rough in darkened alleys, frozen shop doorways, underground water systems and on rubbish dumps. They are often numb with cold, terrified – some will be beaten, abused and killed. For many street children each day is just another day to endure and survive. That is … unless they come to Casa Alianza.

Casa Alianza has developed a five stage core programme that starts on the streets and ends in kids having a home and hope for the future. We start with street outreach and pre-community work with homeless children and young people and then offer access to crisis centres, transition homes and finally group homes. We currently work with over 10,000 children each year and have over 2,000 children in our residential care programmes.

THE BANDS

ADDICTIVE PHILOSOPHY:-
play a range of original music from mellow rocksteady to full throttle thrash, but mainly levelling out in the Ska/Punk area – think Rancid, Specials, Inner Terrestrials and Crass, but as far and wide as The Paragons to Discharge.

THE DUEL:-
Powerful female fronted punk band who love-Ramones, Dead Boys, Clash, Sex Pistols, Blondie, Iggy & The Stooges, Patti Smith, Uk Subs, The Vibrators, The Damned +++

LOWLIFE UK:-
Black Flag meets Black Lace hardcore WMC punk. Abusing the public and themselves since 1995.

SILENT JACK:-
A hard rocking sleaze band from Birmingham with the attitude, style and badass music that will make any individual cry out in climax.

The Reverends-
hard hitting, honest, and in your face punk band with a reputation for catchy songs that tell the world exactly how it is.

SODS LAW:-
Punk as… from Derby-bring on the noise

CARL NEWTON:-
Top notch singer song writer with a fine punk rock pedigree

BROCKER:-
Shambolic Rock n’ Roll tunes with Punk Rock attitude and twists from Ska, Rockabilly, Reggae or even Flamenco. A must see live for a shot of stamina!

FREEDOM FACTION:-
Quality punk stuff with great tunes

E.S.O:-
Punk on 45 v Slaughter and The Dogs

THE POOR GEEZERS:-
Often confused with the old geezers, they play just what they want and are a tad strange

APOCALYPSE BABYS:-
Tight and bouncy Screeching Weasel type creature which eats Ramones records

RUDE AND RECKLESS:-
Youngsters making fine unrefined punk rock

LUDDITE BASTARD:-
So that’s who nicked my Leftover Crack records

JOY RADIO:-
A hardcore punk band playing love songs, if Sonic Youth were playing Buzzcocks songs then it might sound something like this.

CONSTANT SOURCE OF DISAPPOINTMENT:-
Rum swiggin’ loud hard British thrash-metal

JONATHON MARRIOTT:-
Experimental folk rock from Colchester played with a raw punk intensity. With influences drawn from artists such as Nick Cave, Billy Bragg and Jamie T
