Punk rockers set to take to the stage at the Old Star in Uttoxeter

Comments (0)

A PUNK-ROCK band is performing live at a Uttoxeter music venue on Saturday.

Vomit will perform at The Old Star, in Queen Street, from 9pm on Saturday night performing classic punk rock covers and a selection of their own material.

The bands inspirations include The Clash, The Damned, The Sex Pistols, The Ruts and Joy Division.

Lead singer Lee Campbell said: “Next up for Vomit is The Old Star at Uttoxeter - it’s a brilliant outside stage and we are being supported by a brilliant young band called Suburban Radio.”

The set list will include classic 70/80’s punk rock and tracks from their debut album 10 Shades of Vomit.

The band promise a ‘lively show’.

They were formed in 1977 when lead singer Lee and axeman Marshal, who is also on vocals, discovered they had the same interest in punk rock and started writing a few songs.

The two then-boys used to go to Congleton Youth Centre where they would play punk music on their record player, much to the disapproval of the other children.

However, two other boys were interested in the music, Steve and Gez Austin, and together they decided to form a band.

They started to practice in a room at the youth centre with one amp, bins for drums and a singer who was just shouting.

Soon the group had more amps and Stevo (Steve) had his first drum kit as they started performing some ‘very easy’ punk classics.

Vomit’s first gig was at The Duke of Wellington, in Congleton.

As more punk bands started to emerge and band members started to move on, Vomit decided some changes needed to be made.

Stevo was replaced by Jamie Adams on the drums and around a year later Marshall moved on and was replaced by Paul Lomas on the guitar.

Now they have made their comeback with lead singer Lee, Marshal back on guitar and vocals, Mov on bass, roadie Topov on sound and merchandise and Stevo back on drums.
