.Tip top glam punks The DeRellas are back at The Vic
For fans of New York Doll/MC5/Ramones
Recent reviews of the new album by the DeRellas
“Infused with spirit of Dead Boys, Heartbreakers and MC5, with leathers, spikes and bad attitudes as standard, London’s DeRellas boast a young, loud LAMF snottiness so totally NYC, you’d swear it was Swedish” – Classic Rock
“A Trash Talking Sizzling Album” 8/10 – Vive Le Rock”
“Just occasionally music can still elicit that primal urge, and “Something’s Got To Give” is one of those moments. Pure sleaze, and purely brilliant.” 9.5/10 – Maximum Volume
“The DeRellas Coming of Age Album” – R.P.M.
“Never Mind The Bollocks “Something’s Got To Give” IS the Bollocks” – Nuzz Prowling Wolf Blog
“Raw and snarling and filled with a Stooges-like guitar swagger and a You-Talkin’-to-Me? attitude, Something’s Got to Give is the album we all so desperately need right now.” – Razor’s Edge Rocks

FRANCK CARDUCCI & THE FANTASTIC SQUAD – w/support from THE LISTENING DEVICE
FRANCK CARDUCCI
The first album « Oddity » was full of promises for the start of an epic journey but it is on stage where he starts to carve his signature – costumes, make-up, psychedelic atmospheres, humour and sensuality. Yes, you think of Genesis, of Alice Cooper and David Bowie, of Led Zeppelin and Pink-Floyd too. But eventually, you will no longer think of anybody else.
Following the release of the highly anticipated « Torn Apart », featuring special guest Steve Hackett (Genesis), the « Tearing the Tour Apart » hit the road in Europe and Franck reinforced his show as one of the most irresistible in the rock scene. 2017 saw the release of a live DVD/BluRay of the tour, which, after about 100 dates, ended with a standing ovation on stage of the Loreley « Night of the Prog » festival in front of 6000 people.
Carducci, as Master of Ceremonies, leads his Rock ‘n Roll Circus where each of his players embodies a side of his music. Who can explain how a 12 string guitar extra neck would be added to a bass guitar, how a powerful guitar riff would go with a hot belly dance, or a Mellotron solo would end up in a duel with a didgeridoo?
Who can also explain how Achilles, guitar and sword in hand, would kidnap a sensual Alice from her Wonderland?
However, let them pick you up and take you in the palm of their hands – you won’t want to leave until the very last note of the concert. Your senses will not be given a second of rest while these characters take you to a place where dreams are kings, emotions are queens and musical genres are crossed with no borders.
September 2017 was the start of « On The Road to Nowhere » where the band won the « Best Overseas Band » award from UK magazine « Classic-Rock Society ».
After the release of his 3rd opus « The Answer » in November 2019, Franck will hit the road again in 2021 for « The Answer Tour ».
Immerse yourself into the spectacle and let yourself go as you embark on a journey into a colourful, flamboyant and fun musical universe, which is open and accessible to all.
