An epic test of endurance and valour is about to be thrust upon the ears of the unsuspecting, for this autumn sees the arrival of the first Wrathstonbury all-day festival. Ok, so it's not in a field near to some Neolithic monument to Shane McGowan's teeth, but at the mighty Joseph's Well in the fair city of Leeds.
This pub will play host to a whole day of excruciating din on Saturday 20th September - just for YOU.
The day is an attempt to bring together all the participants in this year's stunning Wrath Super Sevens singles club series, and quite astonishingly, they've managed to get all but one of these fine groups to play. Here's the illustrious line-up:
LITTLE JAPANESE TOY - THE BILDERBERG GROUP - SMILEX - BEING 747 - MAGOO - FARMING INCIDENT - GALITZA - STUFFY/THE FUSES - THE SCARAMANGA SIX - CHRIS T-T - LES FLAMES! - BEACHBUGGY
Cost is a meagre £6 in advance or £8 on the door. Those who have subscribed to the Wrath Super Sevens club will be able to get in for even cheaper. Tickets are available now from either the venue, by mail order to Wrath Records or via an email enquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title 'I would like a day of Wrath please'.
There should be pub food available through the afternoon and you will also be entertained by an assortment of DJ's subjecting you to their record collections in the main bar all through the day. Of course, there will be a stall peddling the many wares of Wrath Records and anybody else who would like to contribute.
