Don't miss promising Punk upstarts Waste of Space and Fleckt Pets this month
The brilliant independent music venue/record store Pop Recs will be hosting two of the UK’s most promising up and coming punk bands on the 17th of June and here’s why you should be there…
Hailing from Sunderland, ‘Waste of Space’ bring the noise with their signature brand of dystopian punk and undeniable boldness. Sure to provide ample amounts of hard-hitting and raw tunes to raise your fist to, this three-piece has risen up with a vengeance and won’t let anything stand in their way. With their cross-hairs aimed squarely at the sources of our common hatred and distrust as well as our fears for the future, Waste of Space never ceases to be catchy and oddly accessible.

A perfect example of the punchy attitude and raw, chant worthy, attitude of Waste of Space
Meanwhile, the Middlesbrough lads ‘Fleckt Pets’ shout and riff their way into your personal space with their politically and socially charged anthems. Their latest EP ‘War Cry’, released this year, will make you want to tear around with your middle finger firmly raised at the world.
What’s more, this unrelenting and fierce defiance brings with it a platform for genuine anxieties and eye opening declarations we never knew we needed to hear.
Listen to: War Cry
A call to arms against the oppressors and a sure-fire showstopper at gigs, this track will bury its way into your head and become utterly unforgettable.
Both bands personify the face of fresh and modern punk while harkening back to some of the classic conventions we all love.
Guaranteed to entertain, inform, or just boil your blood, this event is definitely not one to miss!
