Lineup and Details for Baddie's Banquet: Hyena + Bad Grammar + The Drive & more

Birmingham Promoters present:
£6adv • Ages 16+



Telford based Hyena, formerly known as Weatherbird, released their impressive debut single ‘Mental Home’ under their new guise in November. The single, issued by Red Venom was produced by Royal Blood producer Tom Dalgety who focused on the band’s Nirvana-esque surging dynamic and the singer’s hoarse power to mesmeric effect.

The band, who have toured with Aussie thrashpop group DZ Deathrays, have been compared to the likes of Darlia and Drenge and are sure to follow in their footsteps.

‘This year’s rock revival roars on – all snarling QOTSA’s style guitar riffs and pounding drums, ‘Mental Home’ is a blast of pissed off energy’ – NME

Slack syntax and gargantuan riffs unite in Manchester’s dirge rock duo, Bad Grammar. Following in the footsteps of their northern pioneers before them, Bad Grammar channel the same grunge snarls as Pulled Apart By Horses & Drenge.

Part furious distortion, part ferocious percussion, new single ‘Clown’ follows a pretty hectic 2014 for the band, who released their debut EP Forced Fun and were handpicked by party punk king Andrew W.K. as part of last year’s Y Not Festival. They also popped up at Brighton’s Great Escape, Dot to Dot and Southsea Fest.

With their last single ‘Temper Temper’ clocking over 25,000 Vevo views, it’s not surprising the pair have already picked up coverage from XFM, 6Music and Radio 1, along with new music features in NME, Clash and Artrocker.

“Guaranteed to get the music-bods talking with their gloriously grimy racket” - The Tipping Point

“A blend of grunge and punk reminiscent of Fugazi and Shellac that puts many of the current wave of musical duos to shame” - The Ruckus

Hotly-tipped Redditch six-piece Byron Hare released their debut EP Sleep On The Fire in October 2014.

Sleep On The Fire becomes the first EP release from the independent record label Death Or Glory Records, run by brand owner Steve Hadley. The label aims to promote the best in Redditch talent through local live shows and releases.

The band’s soulful electro-tinted pop has already notched up a number of Radio One plays, and the band appeared on Huw Stephens’ Radio One show back in November to talk about music in Redditch and their exciting-looking future.

A filthy rock ’n’ roll band with slicked-back swagger! This youthful trio offer an elegant dirge of self-penned garage rock. Growling bass riffs and shrieking guitar licks are frantically spurred on by a quick-tempered drum attack. The raw style of their sound has a vintage quality echoing the hey days of British guitar bands such as The Who and The Jam, but also comparable to recent American acts such as The White Stripes, Kings of Leon and The Strokes.
