New York Dolls Headline
Saturday night at
LOTF 2008 we have some bonafide
music legends, the one and only New York Dolls...
proto-punk heroes, The New York Dolls, will be hitting Merton Farm for
an exclusive HEADLINE slot at a UK Festival this Summer in the midst of
a European jaunt taking them to some of the biggest stages in the
And we're absolutely
in the early ‘70s, The New York Dolls are one of the most influential
bands of all time, laying the groundwork for the punk revolution of the
mid 70s. They provided the template, and bucket-loads of inspiration,
for bands across the globe, from The Sex Pistols and The Clash to Kiss
and Mötley Crüe and even The Smiths.
Famed for their
extravagant and raucous performances, David Johansen, Sylvain Sylvain
and crew are set to plough through the old classics like "Trash" and
"Jet Boy", as well as new material from their recent ‘One Day It Will
Please Us to Remember Even This’ album, which is sure to blow the straw
from your ears.
On Friday night the
“tribute” bands are playing -- these will include No Future (Sex
Pistols) Tribute Band; and Blondee, the UK’s finest (Blondie) tribute
Definitely one of the best tribute acts in Kent, if not the
country, Blondee have promised to pack as many massive hits into their
LOTF slot as they possibly can.
NO FUTURE Set To Play On FRIDAY
Future are said
to be one of the world's best “Fake” Pistols bands, as not only do they
sound like the Pistols, but they look like them too; every effort has
been taken to try and reproduce the spirit of the Sex Pistols and its
all about having fun. They play nothing
but Sex Pistols music in the spirit of 1977, and wear seditionaries'
clothing. They even try to wear the right clothes (as close as they
can) that were done on famous gigs and vids ie the river boat look or
the pretty vacant video or the last gig,No Future try to be as
realistic as possible, they try to use the right instruments -- even
has the stickers -- we try to do justice to the
best rock n roll band ever "THE SEX PISTOLS."
The whole event
takes place over 3 days and hosts 160 great bands.
