Mis-Fest, a reminder

As is my want, I will likely be posting a regular reminder about upcoming Blackpool Goth/Horrorpunk festival Mis-Fest, organised by the lovely folks behind Misery of Sound. Over a weekend in June, the Friday night (20th June 2008) will be a club night – all DJ all night – and the Saturday (21st June 2008) will see 8 bands starting at 4PM and going late into the night.

The line-up is looking mighty fine:

Danse of the Dead – a local folk/Goth band, really worth a watch
The Cemetary Girlz - Over from France, one of the bands I don’t know
UFX – sleaze rock, I can’t say too much as the lead singer is an old friend, but they are good
The Eternal Fall – a Spanish Trad Goth band, I saw them last year and they are fantastic
Pink Hearse – a local all girl horrorpunk band who do a cracking version of Creature of the Night
Eyaculacion Post Mortem – Over from Spain, the other band I have not seen before
Screaming Banshee Aircrew – a fantastic Goth act with a touch of Vaudeville and a sense of humour
Zombina and the Skeletones – I love this lot and have embedded their Dracula Blood video below.

Pre-ordered tickets are £15, an absolute bargain. Plus I’ll be there, so if you spot me say hello.

Screaming Banshee Aircrew is still one of the all-time best goth band names. I really hope to check out their music someday.

Derek, they were so much fun to see live. I took a friend, who really isn't that into the Goth scene and he thoroughly enjoyed them to.

you can listen to a few tracks at their MySpace Profile.
