Moog and Bulletproof with the irrepressible enthusiasm of their fans made this show one of the best ones we’ve done yet. It is hard to believe Moog haven’t played together for such a long time since they completely owned the stage relentlessly dipping into a repertoire of pop-rock songs complete with dirty guitar licks and assured vocal harmonies. Bulletproof presented their signature sound of ferocious, agitated rock ‘n’ roll with threads of rockabilly, ska and hardcore Brit punk woven through. Despite an amp failure midway through the set, fixed with help from Neil of Moog, they held the audience spellbound.

Jersey’s music culture has a scabrous underbelly of punk attitude born out of oppression of youth and corporate domination of its society. No band is more motivated to express rage at the travesties committed by the island’s questionably elected rulers than Bulletproof, and they do it with astoundingly disciplined technique and heart-pumping passion. Bulletproof are Steve Creedy (guitar and vocals), Lee Gosselin (bass) and Darren ‘Eddie’ Eversfield on drums.

Bulletproof were mentioned here in an earlier post when Steve of Function Records talked about their album being released on the label. Unfortunately the link to their page on the label’s site doesn’t work at the moment.  Could it be the link broke due to over-hardcoreness? If someone from the label or band wants to leave a comment with updated link please do it.

The mighty Moog have stepped up to replace Zoohair who were going to appear this week. Moog play a US indie rock-inspired set of great virtuosity and melodic power. This is the band featuring Jonny The Large, advisor and artist liaison for these events, on bass, with Neil Pickles singing and playing guitar and Rich Baxter drumming. Here’s some pictures of Moog doing what they do best, that is to say getting trashed.

I believe it’s important to vote at these elections and so I’m including a link to the local government’s website page, Elextions 2008, where you can download a voting registration leaflet.

Finally, I’d like to recommend a Jersey blogger who is consistently interesting on local political issues. Let’s hear it for A Holiday In The Sun.
