The band that a brewer liked so much, he created a beer especially for their song...

17 Feb at What's Cooking in London
22 Feb at The Crofters Rights in Bristol
23rd Feb The Sun Inn, Frome
24 February at The Bell, Bath.
The band are a regular fixture on the London/Bristol/Festival music scene, often playing to sell out crowds.
Their latest single ‘King Ambulance’ is a Stooges inspired punk rock stomper referencing 80s Zombie flicks, The Colston Hall controversy and 2018 fear and loathing.
Gavin Durham, Head Brewer at Hopcraft brewing, first met the band after seeing their rip-roaring set at Red Rooster Festival last year. He liked them so much, he suggested brewing a beer especially for the band's single launch.
King Ambulance beer ('a. Hazy oatmeal milkshake IPA' ) will be available at all the gigs, as well as 4 Bristol pubs, including The Green Man, The Hillgrove and The Duke of York.
The John E Vistic Rock ‘N’ Roll Sound System's brand new single ‘King Ambulance’ will be available at the gigs, and is also available on itunes from 22 February.
Tickets for the Bristol gig are available via the Bristol Ticket Shop.
