Charlie Harper will be raring to go and is more than likely still buzzing from the UK Subs excellent performance on Saturday 7th August at the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool. The event was a homage to the fact that the annual Rebellion Punk Festival was celebrating 25 years of keeping the genre alive. It was called ‘Hits 25 – Celebrating 25 years of Holidays In The Sun’, as that is what the festival was originally called.

Charlie was stationed in Blackpool for a few days as he was the special support guest for Buzzcocks at their two sold out shows at The Waterloo Music Bar on Sunday 8th and Monday 9th August. Charlie performed his solo acoustic set on these two nights and this is what he will be doing up at The Con Club.

Cockwomble will be supporting Charlie on the night. They are a Brighton based trio consisting of Ali on vocals and lead guitar providing incomparable lyrics, Victoria on bass and Leah on drums. They can be found lurking on YouTube with a serious selection. They have appeared at Rebellion on the ‘Introducing Stage’ and are often met with critical acclaim. Keen eyed punk fans will note that Victoria is also a member of The Ramonas, who have had Charlie Harper guest on their album.
