Punk and rhythm and blues will be bedfellows as two diverse bands play at The Wheatsheaf in Leighton Buzzard over the weekend.

Playing on Friday night is the four piece punk band Crash Induction.

They perform a mix of classic, alternative and contemporary punk songs from 1977 through to the modern day. They cover the likes of Green Day, The Clash, Ramones and the Sex Pistols.

The band is made up of Neil Harrison on vocals and guitar, Mike Pashler on lead guitar and backing vocals, Chris Swindale on bass guitar and Martin Vranch on drums.

Saturday night is rock ‘n’ roll and R&B band Hipbone Slim and the Kneetremblers. Led by Sir Bald Diddley, described by organisers as “Britain’s string king”, they capture the true essence of rock ‘n’ roll. A pub spokesman said to expect a few mad antics from the front man.

Drummer Bruce Brand is said to be one of Britain’s finest rock ‘n’ roll drummers and has played for many famous names including Mungo Jerry and made two albums with Link Wray.

The band has toured extensively throughout Europe, with more dates across the continent over the coming year.

The live shows are said to be “totally out there” and very raucous and entertaining occasions which have led to the band gaining a cult reputation on the local music scene.

Music starts at around 9.30pm on both nights and admission is free.
