The HotKnives - ah, coughing and spluttering and laughing yer arse off bent over the gas ring with a sawn off coke bottle as yer mum's best cutlery gets eternally blackened along with your throat and lungs. Heady daze. And then there's the brilliant band! First emerging in 1982, this amazing second wave of British Ska outfit quickly cultivated a massive following that has seen them through various lineups and reformations over the years. You can guarantee they are still a red hot hit of joy when it comes to getting yer dance craze on in a beautifully sweaty back room of a brilliant boozer... like The Dublin Castle. Promises to be a fabulous night out this. Polish up yer dancing loafers.
