Oct 12th: The Forgotten Rebels w/ The Lucky Ones
The punk rock movement had just started and the young teens of the day were drawn to the chaos,rawness and truth of this new mutation. In particular a raged group of motley youth from Hamilton Canada in 1977 were to bring a decidedly more offensive level, more in your face, and more obscene than anyone had ever dared, and the Rebels spend the next 20 plus years influencing many new bands and making a mark that was there's alone. Although it was done as a let's just get any reaction" statement, the tongue n cheek humor of the Rebels was to be there notoriety and there Achilles heel forever more.
When the band started " to get free beer and chicks " a decision was made to laugh and poke fun at everything, everyone, everywhere, leaving none left out of the joke, even themselve's . Singer and founding member and frontman extrodinair Mickey De Sadist recalls "The band's we most admired were, Bowie, T-Rex, Gary Glitter,and the Sweet", but being new to musical instruments the best we could pull off was a bad out of key version so we decided to write our own songs with less chords.
Since the release of their debut album The Booze Sessions in 2010, The Lucky Ones have won two NMA Punk Rock Group of the Year awards, Had Songs featured in TV Shows & Movies and have played many festivals including D-Tox Rock Fest, Canadian Music Fest, Koi Fest, Rebel Fest, SCENE Music Festival and have shared the stage with the likes of Stiff Little Fingers, The Forgotten Rebels, USS, The Bouncing Souls and NOFX. Collectively, band members Steve Stumble (vocals), Robbie Knuckles (bass), Chris Nowicki (guitar), and Eric Hutt (drums) also own and operate an independent record label, book and promote bands, manage a pub, regularly tour with a variety of acts, run no less than three music and entertainment festivals, and they still manage to party hard enough to put most of us to shame!
