In a period for UK punk where it is enjoying leading the world into new antagonistic riots of excellence and influence, THE DUEL stand to the fore inspiring artist and fan alike. It is not a new phenomenon as their previous albums “All Aboard The Crazy Train” and “Soundtrack To The End Of The World (The Zak Splash Story”) has shown, their anthemic adventurously captivating sounds stretching band and genre to greater heights. With their fifth album breeding whispers of even greater things poised to feast on the passions as it looms on the near horizon, The Duel is taking the challenge of pushing punk further still in their stride as they will show on this week’s Reggae Punk Monday.

The link with Johnny Thunders on the night continues with DAVE KUSWORTH, a Birmingham musician inspired by the raw power of the Stooges and the glam rock excess of the New York Dolls whose band The Bounty Hunters sometimes opened for the great man. It is just a part of the story though in a career which saw Dave at the age of 16 form his first band TV Eye before going on as singer/songwriter/guitarist to make memorable impacts with The Subterranean Hawks, The Dogs D’Amour, The Rag Dolls, The Jacobites alongside ex-Swell Maps Nikki Sudden), and the Tenderhooks. His unique rock ’n’ roll vision has never been tainted or deviated across the years meaning the night’s audience is in for another expressive treat.

Spanking Machine
