Roughneck Riot Interview – Folk Punk

Redstar73 Blog: Please can you introduce your band. When was it started?

Hey! We are Roughneck Riot, a Folk-Punk band from the North of England that started back in 2005 when Ryan (bass) and Matty (vox/mando) were 14/15 years old. Over time we have developed our sound to be the contemporary folk – punk sound that has moved away from traditional folk music.

Redstar73 Blog: How is the scene in Manchester?
We live in a town called Warrington which is between Manchester and Liverpool and very close to Leeds and we all constantly work with people from all over the country so the scene is pretty much spread out across the UK. Its the best scene i can imagine being in, the bands are all incredible, the majority of promoters weve played for really do their best to promote the gigs and look after the bands even with our crappy financial situation at the moment. The actual fans and friends of all the bands are amazing too, we can travel to anywhere in the country and usually find some of our friends. Its like a huge extended family!

Redstar73 Blog: How important is for you the DIY idea and politics?
I dont think its important that all bands write political music. Its an artistic expression of something so it can be anything. It just happens to be something we write about. Punk is the reason why I have the morals and ethics that I have and I think with the DIY punk scene, it goes hand in hand. The scene can only work through mutual aid and respect. Being part of a DIY scene usually means everyone is treated fairly and nobody is exploited for their efforts. Something i expect a lot of the scene wish everybody could experience, and why politics is so present in the scene. Our recent van troubles have highlighted to us how caring and generous of a scene it is if you’re willing to do whatever you can for others.

Redstar73 Blog: What’s up next for the Roughneck Riot, any new releases on the Horizon..?
Our 2015 has been absolutely chaotic so far. Losing our van was a massive punch in the gut, and weve had all sorts of personal issues to cope with so writing has been pretty slow once again, but everything feels like we’re back on track at the moment. Our year is nicely filling out with tour dates, we have our 10 year anniversary gig this weekend and we’re hunting for vans right now. It’ll take more than this to stop us.

Redstar73 Blog: Last words…
Start a band! It’s great!

KIMI HIRO (Bande à part, London)

Music has always been a big part of my life, buying records as a teenager and DJing now for over 10 years. I’ve grown up with ska/rocksteady in my country, Japan, but since moving to London I became more interested in a wider variety of black music and collecting originals. My passion goes to 50s and 60s RnB and this is what I usually play. I run my own night in London, Band a Part, with my DJ mate Ian O’Donoghue (aka Cousin Benson) for almost 7 years. We are fortunate to have had guest DJ’s coming from several parts of the world (Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Denmark, Japan, USA) to join our night, as well as many UK DJs (sorry, we haven’t had anyone from Spain yet, but maybe soon!). I have been inspired by each and single DJ I’ve had the pleasure to dj with.

Hi, I’m Alfonso from Barcelona. For me it’s a big big pleasure attending  to my favourite club on a different perspective. Usually punter, it’ll be my 2nd time at the decks. Many thanks Cris & Jordi! During the last ten years I’ve been lucky enough of being called to spin my records on most of the spanish rallies and clubs, also a few times abroad in Italy, Germany, Greece, France… I’ll try to contribute to that unique atmosphere the Boiler has, with my usual recipe: r&b, soul, boogaloo, funky soul, etc., mixing well known biggies with new hopefully refreshing goodies… Come dance with me!

HENRIK AKERBERG (The Pacemaker, Stockholm)

I started collecting 50s and 60s records by a coincident when I was asked to DJ at the local Tiki bar (Tiki Room) in Stockholm 9 years ago. Back then, I played Hawaiian, Jungle Exotica, Surf, Latin and Calypso. Nowadays I collect mainly Rare R&B, Soul and Blues Dancers, even though the “early days” have flavored my taste in these genres. I still play records at Tiki Room regularly but my main focus is on my 1 year old club, The Pacemaker, that I run with my mate Marcus Hjoberg. We have started to invite DJs from abroad and will continue to do this after Christmas. The last years I have been lucky to be invited to various club nights in Europe, such as the Jukebox Jam (London), Band è Part (London), Soulful Turino (Turin – Italy) and Jester Wild (Jena – Germany).

Mel Smith – Chicken Backs

18/10/2014 – Femme Soroll Fest – Barcelona

Trío enérgico de punk con toques surferos desde Barcelona. Temas acelerados, pegadizos y frescos. No podrás dejar de bailarrr.

Black D-Beat endiablado desde Valencia, con miembros de Disparo, Encabronation y Mistkafer. ¡¡¡Saca el mal que llevas dentro!!!

Ska anarkopunk a dos voces desde Manchester. Mensajes de lucha e ira contra la política actual de Gran Bretaña. La guerra comienza aquí.

Punk melódico cargado de crítica social y rabia desde Madrid. Letras directas y reivindicativas con rimas que enganchan. Amistad y rebelión.

Punk rock a dos voces muy concienciados con la igualdad de género, la justicia social y la acción. Desde Olympia, Washintong, presentando nuevo disco. Una montaña rusa musical que cuenta historias de la vida real.

Habrá comida vegana y djs hasta el amanecer….

Femme Soroll Fest
