STAY SICK BRIGHTON TATTOO CONVENTION 2023 OFFICIAL AFTERPARTY
Once again, STAY SICK is proud to be invited to curate and host a wild afterparty as part of the BTC 2024!★ This special STAY SICK AFTER PARTY is £FREE TO ALL BTC WRISTBAND HOLDERS! But first just a quick heads up that capacity is limited. So it’s first come, first served on the night, and is being held over two floors of our spiritual delinquent home, The Hope & Ruin, Brighton.★ Expect killer bands, DJs, amazing live psychedelic, tripped out visuals and projections, as we take over BOTH FLOORS of the venue for a wild Saturday night!
Playing live!!!★★★ THE SILLY WALKS (France) ★★★
Yes, they’re finally back! It’s been 5 years since THE SILLY WALKS graced a Stay Sick stage when we co-pro’d them with Weirdsville at The Pipeline, Brighton. That show blew our minds and we’ve been trying to get them back over the channel ever since!
“This rock’n’roll-trio from Montpellier, France, display an incredible energy during their powerful live-performances as well as on their records. Their new and latest LP “Trash Attack” out on TOPSY-TURVY RECORDS (division of SOUNDFLAT RECORDS) is wild, raw and infectious rock ’n’ garage with snotty boy-girl-vocals, raw guitars, a stomping beat and lots of attitude.
You can definitely hear some raw garage-punk influence á la SONICS, some surfy CRAMPS-rock ’n’ wildness and some trashy post-punk-craziness B-52’s-style. Listening to their rocking “Who’s Gonna Find Out” and “Watch A Man Die”, the tough lo-fi “Trash Attack” or the manic “I Want You Dead” you’ll be doing the blowfish – or at least a silly walk – in no time!”Be prepared for a musical “Trash Attack” of the very best kind!
★★★ ELECTRIC COWBOY CLUB ★★★
Electric Cowboy Cub are bad news… but the kind of ‘bad’ you’ve been waiting for! Imagine being time warped back to the early 80s and discovering a band who meld The Cramps, Gun Club or Sex Gang Children all together and you’ll get some idea of where E.C.C. are coming from.
This strangerous gang of delinquents could be the greatest band you never saw, so if you’ve not had the fortune to experience an E.C.C. show, well hell!, now’s the time to put that right!
Lord have mercy on your souls
★★★ TRIP WESTERNS ★★★
Yeee-haww! We’re so stoked to finally be bringing these local outlaws to the party! Trip Westerns have quickly built a reputation across Brighton’s scene as one of the city’s most vivid and dizzying live acts in their brief existence, twisting the town’s famous narrow cobbled streets into a Sergio Leone desert backdrop, alongside nods to sun-soaked 60’s R&B and 21st century fuzz-drenched garage rock.
“their roots comfortably buried in the soil of mid-20th century rock and R&B, intertwined with lashings of surf and psychedelia – reveling in the twangy notes of spaghetti western soundtracks (see Ennio Morricone).” – Otis HayesWhat a way to get the party started!
Plus!!!★★★ INNERSTRINGS LIVE PSYCHEDELIC LIGHT SHOW ★★We are also insanely excited by the fact the venue will be transformed visually over both floors as all bands and DJs will play to a mind bending psychedelic, tripped out back drop and light show as created by the incredible INNERSTRINGS!!!
★★★ STAY SICK and SPECIAL GUESTS DJs ★★★★ MR & Ms A ★
Introducing 2/3rds of the team behind HIPSVILLE a GO GO, the UK’s wildest 60s and beyond weekender! Please give it for the way past cool Mr and s A!
Andrew and Alex are no strangers to the Stay Sick decks over the years and it’s a vice verse situation because our mutual love of all things rock, roll, garage, beat, trash, surf, punk n soul means we love a good 45 mash up and love these cats ‘cuz to put it simply – they’ve GOT GOOOOD TASTE!!
★ POLLY ACID BOX ★
If you’re local to Brighton and dig discovering exciting sounds from around the globe then chances are you’ve been to one of Acid Box’s shows – which in turn means Polly will have brought yet another sick band to town!
Stay Sick and Acid Box have teamed up on several occasions to co-pro shows so we know her pedigree and knowledge as a promoter AND as a DJ! She brings something different to (turn)table every time from her extensive vinyl vault and we can’t wait to hear what she’s gonna spin this time round! ꩜
★ NEIL & CHRIS SICK ★
And alongside our guest DJs us STAY SICK boys will be spinning some of our favourite trash // garage // punk // rock n roll // surf // fuzz // psych wax before, between and after the bands as we have a good ol’ trashgaragepunkrocknroll dance party, all the way through til 2am!
