London's Burning! A Celebration of the life of Joe Strummer December 21st with The Phobics and more at Surya, London

Surya at 156 Pentonville Road London, presents "London's Burning!", a night of live music celebrating the life of the great Joe Strummer and to help raise money for Strummerville, the Joe Strummer Foundation for new music. The show features Ignore Alien Orders, Band Of The Underhand, The Phobics, Riot In Paradise, Skinny Girl Diet and DJs Jamie Headcharge & Zowie Carr so, expect Clash songs aplenty and some of London's finest punk/alternative bands and maybe one or two guests along the way. Ignore Alien Orders are made up of members of various Sheffield bands such as Artery and Protex Blue and brought together on the first anniversary of Joe Strummer's death for what was to become an annual event in Sheffield. They decided to bring the concept to London to mark the tenth year of his untimely passing and will be closing the evening in their inimitable fashion with some Clash classics! Riot In Paradise feature Terry Sex-Gang (ex-Sex Gang Children), Michi Sinn (ex-Jnr Manson Slags) and Pete Novakowski (ex Miguel and The Living Dead), they describe themselves as Trancy, Punky, Dubby, Jazzy, Spikey, Dancey and Dark 'n' Sparky. Skinny Girl Diet are an exciting, uncompromising all-girl 3-piece, wringing-wet with 1977 attitude that belies their tender years. Fast becoming one of the most exciting new young bands on the London circuit, do not miss them!

The Phobics formed in Deptford a few years back by punk survivors and misfits with a love of raw rock 'n' roll and bored of the smug and complacent music scene. Sometimes tight, sometimes not, occasionally sober but always eventful, faster and louder. A kick up the arse with great tunes that’ll hook you deep. The band are busy in the run up to Xmas, as they will support the legendary Heavy Metal Kids at the Merton Manor Club on November 10th, and also appear on the bill at the Borderline in London with Sham 69 and Menace on November 24th. The Phobics have also contributed to the Paul Fox Tribute album, a 24 track compilation released on November 16th to help raise money for the Hospice that cared for the popular and influential Ruts guitarist during his last days. The album also features tracks by The UK Subs, TV Smith, Ruts DC, Laurel Aitken, The Priscillas, Chelsea, The Duel, Splodge, Duncan Reid, Urban Voodoo Machine and Texas Terri amongst others with the cover art work designed by Gaye Advert.
