Photos from Beyond the Bunker Launch Party: The Bands

Capping it off was the talent. Paul Sweeney compered like a tight trousered mean thing with a guitar fetish, followed by Ryan Brannon and Paul Rich (the Coldcallers) who played to the back of someone’s head – we will find that person. Straight in and at the exasperation of local residents and the exultation of the assembled masses came the audio blitzkrieg lullaby that are Duke of Marmalade – three lads from Milton Keynes on their first gig in London. To finish off the night, the lyrical and gutteral guitar strands that are Skyskratcher – headed by chief sound engineer Jude Benjamin – who brought everything to an astonishing crescendo and finished the night with a massive bang!! All round a top night and honestly too small a venue to contain these bands. So now its onwards – either a bigger venue or playing them each one gig at a time. Sadly, no images of Skyskratcher – not sure why but otherwise Imogen Banks captured the rest beautifully.
