So, on Fri 7th November at Sanctuary in Basingstoke we have an immense line up for you all to come down and enjoy!
Headlining are King’s Lynn skate punks, Vanilla Pod! One of my favourite bands of the last (almost) twenty years on the UK scene and this is their first time ever in Basingstoke!!!
Supported by Reading’s brash punk rock n rollers – DSA, Skate punk band Second In Line – expect songs about movies, Essex’s The Tickturds and Crown – Basingstoke local hardcore band!
Doors around half seven and only a fiver to get in!
It’s gonna be insane and huge thanks to Russell Taysom for the flier artwork!
Inspiral Carpets, New Model Army, Astpai, Random Hand, Get Human, The Sick Livers, Black Art & a Rebellion Festival report.
Band Profiles: Emily Ewing, Broken Static, Rats As Big As Dogs, The Obnoxious UK and Drop This. Along with the usual loads of Reviews (music, zine, gig) and columns as well.
The amazing front cover was drawn by Dave Millsop and looks soooo good!!!
You can get a copy on pre-order here and we’ll ship them once it’s released!
This is a 2″ green vinyl compilation featuring 6 bands each doing a 10 second song! This plays on all manual turntables (not electronic) and comes with a mini zine called Pea Brain. Limited to just 300 copies, each one is hand numbered and there’s different colour covers (which is the zine).
Bands appearing on here are: Black Anchor, The Shorts, Joythief, Shooting Fish, Baby Jugglers and Chemical Threat.
And yes that’s right this is a 2″ vinyl!!! No really!!!
Pick one up from here whilst stocks last! http://www.lightsgoout.co.uk/?product=pea-brain-presents-adhd-ep-2-green-vinyl-compilation
New Model Army are a legendary post-punk/alternative rock band who formed in Bradford way back in 1980. Having just released their latest album “Between Wine And Blood”, following up last years rather excellent “Between Dog And Wolf”. We were lucky enough to be able to throw some questions to singer Justin Sullivan.
We have stuck the interview up on the site for you all to check out now – please note this interview will also appear in Issue 30 of Lights Go Out.

The first ever split zine we’ve been involved in. Best of all it’s with one of our favourite zines, Gadgie! High fives to Marv from Gadgie for the opportunity.
36 pages (18 per zine), Gadgie‘s part is superb as always. Our side is the usual stuff, just more Star Wars themed. Interviews and all the usual stuff – so please grab a copy (or ten) from us here: http://www.lightsgoout.co.uk/?product=lights-go-out-issue-29
And I’ll announce some more bits for issue 30 in the coming weeks. Rest assured we’re already working hard on it and it’s coming along nicely too! November release for this one I’d imagine!
