...a nod to the past and a sly wink at the future...
"right now, it's time to..."
...tune to Rebel Station!
Vox & Bass
Born in Geordieland, Raised in the Cotswold Badlands, Tommi D lives in a time-zone all his own. He once had massive commercial success with his previous band The Small Things. We hope he'll have the same effect on Rebel Station! Tommi likes:
Growly Vocals to make him sound like Lemmy
Growly Bass Pedals to make him sound like Lemmy
Growly Beer to... you get the idea
Vox & Guitar
Monkey wasn't born, he was found, somewhere in the East Midlands, where he slung a mean guitar for Leicester Punks First Wave and Northampton garage-rockers The Flamin' Kermits. Monkey particularly lurvs:
Getting that guitar squealin' like a piggie
Stout and Dark Ales, stronger the better
Talkin' Shite that no-one understands
Drums & Backing Vox
When she's not keeping Tommi D and Money on time, Witham works as a highly respected drum tutor for Wytham's Rhythms and LetsPlayDrums in Cheltenham. Witham joined us from Riot Grrrl punks Fight Rosa Fight in January of 2018 and loves:
Smashin' shite out of drums
Teaching kids the dark arts of drumming
Playing badminton to a scarily high standard
Listening to Ska Punk
...and keep it locked
Call it proto-punk, call it garage-punk, call it rock 'n' roll... just call it fun! With a nod to the past and a wink at the future, Rebel Station are the remedy to what's been missing for so long: energy, honesty, humour, passion!
We all grew up with a love for the Stooges, MC5, Dictators, Sonics, Flamin' Groovies, Damned, Clash, Ramones, Motörhead, Wildhearts; and with a respect for the newer bands flying the flag for great music: Maid of Ace, Teenage Bottlerocket, Spirit Bomb, Cundeez, F1rst Wave, Hi-Fi Spitfires, Wreck-Age, Cretin 77, Glitter Trash, iDestroy...
The writing's fresh, original, topical, tongue firmly in-cheek... and it's in yer face!
