scary clown presents

The Scary Clown Presents…  DIY Punk Promoters, we aim to promote great live music in our local area (Peterborough / Stamford), putting on six shows a year.

The owl sanctury Norwich

The Owl Sanctuary –  We are a DIY music & arts venue based in Norwich. Originally formed in early 2014 we have recently moved to a new venue in the heart of the city centre. We have a zero tolerance towards any form of racism, homophobia, transphobia or generally being a bullying dickhead.

The New Cross Inn (London) – Here at the New Cross Inn we put on live music 6 nights a week. From Tuesday to Sunday you can check out big bands, small bands, medium – sized bands and sometimes really famous bands playing all kinds of genres. We like to mix it up, so the only criteria we have when we’re booking is that it sounds fantastic.


Punktastic – another fantastic news / reviews site supporting the punk scene, which looks professional but is run by fans for the fans.  Supported by donations and you guys reading it!

Punksalive – fantastic Punk promotion collective organising tons of gigs in the Birmingham area.

The Portland Arms, Cambridge

The Portland Arms – For decades the Portland has been an essential part of the Cambridge live music scene welcoming local, national and international acts of all genres and backgrounds to play in our dedicated venue space.

TNSrecords is a Manchester based independent record label. TNS (That’s Not Skanking) was founded in 2003 as a fanzine and to put on local gigs. In 2008 TNS evolved to include a record label with the aim of supporting great underground Punk & Ska. TNS is run based on the core principles of supporting grass roots music and the scene and bands working together.

Louder than WarA really authoritative and professional site all about music.  Punk in attitude but covers everything musical.  News, interviews, reviews…   “We are always looking for the new noise, the next buzz, we have no borders, no boundaries – all the musical skree of the 21st century is ours to celebrate.”
