Line Up

Plague UK is a dynamic three-piece band hailing from the vibrant music scene of South London. The group's sound underwent a transformation in 2021, the group's material now boasts a modernistic Power Pop edge, still retaining its signature catchy, melodic hooks and the energy of Punk Rock.

Simon and Lee, the rhythm section of the band, have played together in several bands before, creating a strong and unshakeable foundation, with Ben feeding that rhythm section with his powerful chord progressions.

The Beelines formed in 2019 with shared punk and mod influences as a starting point their sound has broadened and developed. The songs are lyric driven, full of characters, big themes and melancholic reflections with hooks to stick in your head. Once past lockdown they quickly caught up with gigs and festivals across the south and London.

Their engaging performances have led to reviews that include “their stage performances are winning over gig goers”, “Pop Punk Modernists”, “fabulously eclectic mix of edgy songs”, “Great set, with hooky songs”, and "the blistering Beelines".

Four releases, “Do I look Ill?”, “You’re not Listening”, “This is a Secret” and Raise a Glass have been well received and played on local and internet radio stations. This is a Secret also featured on national television.

A band who take their cue from a lot of the old punk and new wave greats of the late 70s with a blast of grunge and glam “ Gary Crowley “

Barry and Clayton had played together for the best part of seven years in the four piece grunge band, the Free State Prophets which saw them enjoy several recordings, play many gigs including touring South Africa, gain label interest and a strong following on the London circuit. The studio jam sessions came about after the break up of the Prophets as the two friends sought to keep their musical interests going and soon they started plotting a new project. After meeting up with Fil Ross, a lead guitarist and studio engineer, Fil joined the band as bassist, playing mega riffs inspired by his passion for heavy rock and strong lead guitar abilities. The tracks gained momentum and the band started recording their debut album, EVO.Upon completion of the album late in 2012, Fil decided to leave the band to pursue his own musical interest as a singer/songwriter, leaving behind a strong impression as his energy was loved and his bass work mesmerizing.2013 saw the band re-invent itself as a four piece with the addition of Gary Pearce (Innocent Bystanders) on Lead Guitar and Nick Medlin on Bass.

Just as the band began progressing, they were back at square one with the announcement that Clayton was leaving due to work commitments. Cue Paul Cassar in the hot seat. The Vulz began playing more live gigs and impressed as a solid act with strong live performances.Mid 2014 saw the return of Clayton into the drummers chair and early 2015 brought the arrival of David Zerafa on bass, replacing the departing Nick Medlin. The band started working on a second album and continued to perform on the London circuit, drawing great reviews from their performances. December 2016 saw the release of the bands second album, Love Struck Bomb Delay which was recorded at the Grand Chapel Studios in Tebworth, Bedfordshire.
