Australia may not always be the first place you think of when you consider punk music, but Melbourne's Clowns are working hard to change that. Their music leaps around genres and they never cover the same ground twice. If you're a fan of old school punk with an eye on the future, you could do a lot worse than checking out their set on the Sunday of Rebellion 2018.
TNSrecords is one of Britain's most consistent record labels and once again they're providing a chunk of acts for Rebellion Festival this year. Faintest Idea may hail from King's Lynn, but you wouldn't know it as the rudeboy brass washes over you with tracks like 'Part One: Circling The Drain'. The live experience pushes it even further than their excellent studio material.
Voodoo Glow Skulls
It's hard to believe that Voodoo Glow Skulls formed way back in 1988 as their material still sounds so relevant in 2018. For some of the younger attendees of Rebellion Festival, it's impossible to remember a time before Voodoo Glow Skulls. With this year marking their thirty year anniversary, they're sure to be planning one hell of a show to celebrate.
When The Subhumans split, who knew that Dick Lucas would form a band who were still dominating punk lineups over thirty years later? Culture Shock may never have experienced the mainstream success enjoyed by a number of their contemporaries, but they are undoubtedly legends and sure to provide on of Rebellion Festival's most memorable closing day sets.
Having formed in 1980, Fullerton natives The Adolescents are rapidly approaching their fourth decade as a band. Despite breaking for almost twenty years, they've still managed to rack up a staggering nine studio albums of relentless punk anthems. The world has changed a lot since The Adolescents came along, but they'll always be a place in it for The Adolescents.
