Have your say

This Friday, the Twisted Melon Battle Of The Bands goes heavy.

Chicago’s, in Lynn, will turn back the clocks as for one night only it becomes a real rock venue.



Triston Finnis, of Twisted Melon, said: “The place will be unrecognisable with live music, cheap beer and free entry.

“In keeping with this alternative/metal heat the judges will change too, with like-minded music professionals, musicians and promoters on the panel.”

Heat 7 of BOTB all kicks off at 7pm and this is an over-18 night.




Shock! Hazard features Jake on vocals and lead guitar, Dexx on bass and Dom on drums. They are a hard hitting rock band provoking the revolution inside you!

Mixing punk, hard rock and anarchism, they tear the stage apart with the most energetic performance since the 80s, whilst speaking out the truth and stirring a revolution.

Shock! Hazard are out to make their stand on the music industry and the world. Influences from AC/DC, Sex Pistols, The Used and Rage Against The Machine.
