VICE SQUAD + NOWHERE CITY RIOT
THE VICTORIA INN
12 MIDLAND PLACE
Vice Squad is a punk band formed in 1978 in Bristol, England. The band formed from two other local punk bands, The Contingent and TV Brakes. Songwriter and vocalist Beki Bondage (born Rebecca Louise Bond) was a founding member and is currently with the band, although there was a period of time when the band had a different vocalist. She is often cited as being the first punk pin-up featured on the front cover of a number of influential music tabloids such as Melody Maker, NME, and Smash Hits.
Bondage formed a new version of Vice Squad in 1997, along with former members of The Bombshells, after being persuaded to perform the old material at the Holidays In The Sun festival. The line-up was initially Bondage on vocals, Paul Rooney (guitar), ‘Stilton’ (bass), and ‘Pumpy’ (drums). The rhythm section was replaced by Michael Giaquinto (bass) and Tony Piper (drums) in late 1999/early 2000. This new line-up has recorded several albums and they continue to tour Europe and the United States. In 2006, they released the album Defiant, produced by guitarist Rooney.
2008 was spent recording the album, “Fairground For The Demented” which was shelved as the band decided the finished collection of songs did not represent the ‘Old School’ punk sound that the band wanted to achieve. This collection of songs is currently released in digital form with retailers such as iTunes and Napster. The gritty punk style was eventually realized in 2009 when Vice Squad released the “London Underground” album which was co-produced by Bond and Rooney. Released on their own “Last Rockers Label” London Underground has received rave reviews on website “Studs And Punks” and songs such as “Punx United”, “Old Skool” and “Sniffing Glue” form a major part of the bands live show.
2009 also saw Vice Squad’s return to America on an 18 date tour of the western states promoting London Underground with American drummer Nick Manning and support from The Lower Class Brats
