A GROUP of punk rockers from Weston will aim to get feet tapping and heads banging at a gig on Saturday.

The Fanzines, named after the amateur punk magazine, has been up and running since the summer after a few months of auditioning and try outs.

Singer Mike Headington, bass player Martin Bray, drummer Pete Roe and guitar player Dale Fieldhouse, have now confirmed their first gig for the new year at the Back Bar of Cheers in High Street.

Martin said: "The idea was to set up a cover version band that played British punk rock classics from 1976 to 1981 with all members of the band already having their own pedigree of playing in punk bands within that era.

"So, basically we are all middle-aged punk rockers playing for fun.

"We consider ourselves to be fans playing for fans and from the three gigs we have done so far we have been a storming success.

"So if you remember The Clash, Generation X, The Ruts and The Pistols why not stick on your boots and come and have a pogo at the back bar with us?"

The band will be supported by Bristol group The Lone Sharks, who also play punk originals.
