Mantilla + Special Guests
FRIDAY 24TH FEBRUARY 2017
The band have been playing forever on an international circuit of grubby pubs, dingy squats with an old skool idealism and utopian ideals. In the 21st century many people would have you believe that this kind of thinking had died out and that everyone is happy to be a consuming monkey and that punk was content to be ddMTV polished but out there on the hinterland something is really stirring.
Punk was only meant to last a couple of years but here is yet more proof of it’s lasting power. in 2011 punk is a folk form and these ancient institutions of band’s are the modern equivalent of the blues legends- people who have seen and done everything and yet still believe.
Oi Polloi at full throttle sound like one of the most vital band’s in the UK.
