Fife Punkfest 7
The 7th annual Fife Punkfest is taking place on 30.06.18 and as always there is a great mix of bands over the night, Punk, Ska and Psychobilly tunes will kick of at 4pm in Kirkcaldy’s Windsor Hotel. With only £10 entry it’s less than £1 per band which must be worth a listen, Ten-Midnight.com look at the 11 bands on the bill and what they will be delivering on the night .
The Catch 22’s have been playing the fife music scene and beyond since 2007. Playing up and down the country from Elgin to London, but mostly in and around the local scene in Fife! Their strong melodic unique ska, punk sound with a splash of disco has earned them a loyal following over the years and after a few years out for studying and family they have returned with a bang in 2018, albeit a slightly different lineup.
Mary Jean vocals, Corrigan and Donaldson guitars, Tamson on drums and the new edition to the family, Broon on bass.

13 Tombs, the self confessed “Kings Of Scottish Deathrock”, slithered into existence when their previous band The Superevils imploded in a burst of acrimony. Consisting of brothers A B Negative (noises), Marcus Carcass (voices) and a pair of drum machines (Thing #1 and Thing #2) they twist together elements of punk rock, goth, garage punk and rock ‘n’ roll and add their own unique ingredient… themselves to create the musical equivalent of a runaway train just clinging to the rails.
Joe Viterbo were formed in 2003 from the embers of legendary Scottsh Punk Band Newtown Grunts. Initially taking a hard rocking approach to the Ska genre, and when that didny work just resorted to foul language and toilet humour. Which has worked marginally better. Everycunyt loves a C bomb it seems. JV have released 4 albums to date and have literally sold ‘some’ copies of all of them. They are on Spotify n aw that if you diny have a CD player. Its mostly just auld jaikeys shouting but some of the guitar playing is quite good. Joe Viterbo are named after Sly Stallones character in cult movie ‘Death Race 2000’. Unfortunately, it only works written down though. When you say it out loud it sounds like ‘Joe The Terrible’. Which is a bit harsh.’Joe the Cunt,’ fair doos. ‘Joe the Jaikbaw,’ fair doos tho. Anyhoo just for the record its pronounced ‘Joe Viiii-terrr-bow’. OK???!!!! Proud to be part of Fife Punkfest…canny wait for some potty mouthed shennanigans and punk rock disco dancing. Rock on. JV xx
The Manky Hoors
The Manky Hoors were formed in Rosyth in 2011. Blending melodic, catchy choruses with shouting and beer, The Hoors have been on a punk rock rampage across the east coast since. With 2 EPs under their belts, and a full length album in the works, Jim, Heepsy, CJ and Scruff are ready to bring their unique brand of toilet humour to their second Fife Punkfest.

The Dignities are a Scottish Rock band with an ‘Old School Punk’ influence. With scorching guitar solos, fiery vocals, blazing bass riffs and roaring kick-ass drumming. Cameron and Helen started The Dignities in early 2014 as a side project as Cameron was already in two other bands. After setting up a home studio they started to record the songs that Cameron had been busy writing. By mid 2014 Cameron decided to solely concentrate on The Dignities demo album.
Angel joined The Dignities in July 2014. Previous to this Angel and Helen got together for practice sessions on a regular basis, so we all thought it would be fun to have Angel join the band. Cameron, Helen & Angel completed work on our demo album, Fire Takes The Night. We’ve now got hard copies of the Album which will be available at gigs. It is also now available for download (Itunes, Amazon etc.) and streaming. We’ve had our first gig and can’t wait to get out there again!! So if you want to come out and hear some Rockin’ tunes check out our gig page for upcoming dates.
Alt/punk, riot grrl, psychobilly, real-deal indie. Check out the sounds. Jo and Nicky D’arc make up The Twistettes. Dirty, twisted bass sound with a hit of swinging flare and thumping, driving drums.
