Stage times up....

TV in the Opera House on Thursday at 9.50pm so there's a nice comfy seat to look forward to! (& no particular clash for me either - bonus! Although GJ will be compromised by the Vibrators at 10.10)

But that appears to be TV's only appearance.....

some very strange timings here-The Descendents on at exactly the same time as The Dickies- fucking stupid! After The Descendents is a 2 hour Don Letts DJ set! Flag are on at the same time as The Dwarves! Why are the Glitter band headlining the ballroom? This means the damned and cock sparrer are both on at the same time! Alan pointed out the overlap with TV and The Vibes-surely the Vibrators should be headlining The Pavillion as they are followed by less well known bands (Members, Mick o'toole-who? and Jericho Hill-who again?). Also- TV should be headlining The Opera House, not the Pukes.
Other clashes- Slaughter and the dogs original line up at exactly the same time as Jello , Adolescents and the Street Dogs at the same time,Chelsea and Major Accident and Spizz  all clash as do 999 and Gimp Fist and Jilted John and Nick Cash and SLF and The Freeze. :'(.

One day I'll go to Rebellion and I'll be able to join in with all the grumbling!

It's exactly the wrong time of year for me but I'm determined to make it at least once.

And when you make it Slaughter I am sure you will hold your own on the grumbling stakes!

Rebellion in the Guardian - and even a link to a 999 video courtesy of the Descendents ... https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/jul/18/descendents-playlist-adolescents-buzzcocks-pears-and-more

Sadly no TV Smith on their playlist but maybe that will change if they catch his set

A few of the US bands have dropped out; Street Dogs (the Boston fire dept. cancelled all leave!), Off With Their Heads (family reasons, disappointed they won't be on), Freeze and Fear.
OK who's going? Alan, Chris, Fred...any others?

Can't do Rebellion at the moment I'm afraid. I hope to go again at some future point.

Just me :(

Mind you very excited by the line up and particularly looking forward to:

Pears; Dwarves; Descendents on Thursday (TV is a given!!) - I was also looking forward to Off With the Heads...

CJ Ramone; Wonk Unit; Reagan Youth; GIUDA; Big D & the Kids Table; Brixie Smith; Weirdos on Friday

Jilted John; B Bang Cider; MDC on Saturday

Graham fellows acoustic; Adolescents; Jello Biafra on Sunday

As well as my usual favourites; Dickies; 999; Damned; Ruts; Buzzcocks; Cravats; Dirtbox Disco etc etc...

But it does seem like our numbers are becoming increasingly depleted...

You won't see The Dickies- they clash with The Descendents.
I thought Chris was going?

"My" Chris can't make it, newly married / new job, but Fireman Chris I think is going - I'll drop him a line!

On the Dickies front - bugger!

Check out the brilliant new Descendents album;

the sound isn't perfect but the music is pretty close.
