Reading & Leeds 28-30 August 2009  

Sixty Watt Bayonets

Sixty Watt Bayonets are a female-fronted garage-punk band comprising Penny, Will, Mike and Billy who met at Reading University. Less than two years old, their sound is reminiscent of Siouxsie and the Banshees and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

The band released their debut 7 track EP Pounding Hearts, Fighting Words in July 2009 and received good reviews from Rock Sound and Kerrang!. Since their first demo, the band have been working closely with Club Velocity who have helped to nurture the band's sound through a successful 12 month residency at the Club Velocity nights in Reading. They recently completed a mini UK Tour and are planning to release a download single in January 2010.
