Last week there was a punk festival at the Green Baize here in Weston Super Mare, called Cupid Stunts, an evening of wild bands and wilder music. With Sister Sweary being away at the Morgue for a change in her embalming fluid and Carol the Producer being busy producing, it looked like Biker Rock Radio staff were going to miss out. Luckily Alex the Student and DJ Ghost stepped up to the challenge of reporting back for us.



Cider Riot - very funny with the lyrics but every song was same tempo and sounded very much the same, good use of the kazoo though. Only 2 guys, both singing with one on bass, needed a little something extra such as a lead guitar to change the songs slightly. Huge audience of 6 to begin with which then slowly raised to 12 as the set continued. The event organiser dude guy seemed to be getting pissed off at them for the long intervals between songs and for over running slightly. Delivered as promised, half an hour of noise.

Cider Riot

51st Date - more up beat and punky than cider riot, still only a 2 piece band however. One drummer and one bass, but started with a problem with the drum kit, can only get better surely? Very enthusiastic singer and the drummer was very good. Easy to distinguish between the songs but they seemed to flow together. They had a larger audience that were there to see the punk of the evening and who also seemed to like these very much. Even though they had only a bass, he used it to great effect making it sound as if the band was bigger than it was, truly impressive.

51st state

This System Kills - change of style yet again, welsh singer, (although that shouldn't be held against him!) not really my sort of music, but the audience seemed to be enjoying it. Very fast tempo and had people up and dancing. The band seem to have an air of confidence and they know there stuff and make it sound very good, even got my feet tapping. Almost a cross between Green Day and Metallica. Very much an old school punk band. Seemed to change between punk and metal.

This System Kills

Brassick - female singer which made a pleasant change to the atmosphere, very fast tempo, proper punk rock, more jumpy than the others which worked well for them, more modern and very good. First time in Weston but they rocked the place a lot like the pretty reckless but more rocky. Got lots of head banging from the crowd. Amazing guitar solos throughout. Honestly seemed to just love what they are doing. Brilliant performance, had real presence on stage and didn’t just stay in the same place, they're all very animated.


What's The Point - proper old school punk, hair cuts and all, enthusiastic and just seemed happy to be there, very good at what they do, unique sound compared to the others, these are a proper good punk band. Utterly mad. Old school scary punk lead singer. Really easy to listen to and just got you moving.

Whats the point

Trigger McPoopshute - more of a rock and roll feel to them, not overly animated but good solid punk rock. Got people up and bouncing. Hard to distinguish between songs as they all sound very similar. Good band but possibly trying to hard. Had everyone up dancing so I could just be being cynical. Mr motherfucker was different and very good, a change for them which seemed to show them under a better light.

The Self Inflicted - less to get up and dance to, but does make you want to tap your feet and they are all moving around and engaging with each other which makes the performance better, the track change is noticeable but they blend together making watching them more enjoyable. But they are nothing overly special, the performance is good but nothing to set it aside from others of its type.

Filthy Rich - new age punk, moves around a lot, but doesn't really interact with crowd, has crowd up on feet and dancing around but that could be the horrendous amounts of alcohol in there system. Nothing really jumps out as outstanding but they do have the crowds attention.
