FORMER Prodigy guitarist Gizz Butt will play Keighley’s Exchange on February 22 with his band Janus Stark, with support from Keighley’s own mighty Sounds Of Swami as well as CPSD.

Gizz is also a former member of English Dogs, UK Subs and Steve Ignorant, and has recently returned with Janus Stark’s first album in 20 years.

A spokesman said: “Their new album really does set the guitar-led punk-rock world alight, with Gizz’s versatility and virtuoso six-string pyrotechnics more aflame and to the fore than ever, with the four-piece band equally on fire.”

The Exchange will host a Punky Reggae Party on Saturday January 25 featuring acoustic punk songs by a couple of members of top local band Devil’s Rejects, a few choice words from anarcho/punk poet Leon the Pig Farmer, and a DJ set till late.

Fling, described as Bradford’s best hyperactive psych, wonky pop rockers, return to Keighley on January, 31, as part of Independent Venue Week. They will be supported by Able’s Army.

February 1 will see False Advertising, the Manchester alt rock grunge outfit, back with a new album and a growing national fan base. A spokesman said: “They play melodic grungey alty songs with stadium worthy choruses and pogo demanding hooks.”
