Janus Stark Shuffling The Pack 16/1/19
Originally formed in 1996 by former English Dogs, The Prodigy, Destructors, Fields Of The Nephilim, Steve Ignorant (Crass) guitarist and general all-round Peterborough Punk legend Gizz Butt, last November saw the welcome return of his Melodic Punk band Janus Stark, and their new single ‘Shuffling The Pack' (today's Video Of The Day). Their first new material in twenty-one years (and their first ever video!), ‘Shuffling The Pack’ is a hook-heavy, power-Pop-Punk smack to the jaw. Last year frontman Gizz decided to reform Janus Stark and asked guitarist Richard Gombault (of 90's Pop Punk trio Midget) to join, along with long standing close friends Fozzy Dixon (drums) and Simon Martin (bass). ‘Shuffling The Pack’, the first results of this new line-up, sees Gizz effortlessly picking up from where the band left off in 2002 and finds its author as riled up and inspired as ever. Dave Grohl once described Janus Stark as “a great melodic kick up the arse”. Little has changed on that front. Prepare to have your arse kicked all over again as they play London's Camden Rocks Festival on Sunday 2nd June.
