Lucifer Star Machine
"This is high octane rock n roll rocket fuel to keep you going all night in a sexual blur. Lucifer Star Machine are the gang on the corner with leather jackets, greased back hair and flick knives in hand looking for action..[INTERPUNK]"

"Lucifer Star Machine consists of steaming great chunks
of in your face Rock'n'Roll. Imagine The Misfits, The Hellacopters,
Turbonegro and Electric Frankenstein having the mother of all parties... [Big Cheese Magazine]"

""D.U.S.T. like to rock, they cite Motley Crue as one of their main influences, but they also have a melodic sensibility and an electronic edge that makes them appealing and very current. D.U.S.T. are quite different from pretty much anything else out there..... slightly reminiscent of Jesus Jones, they are likely to appeal to a wide range of people...[Sorted Magazine]"

Witching Hour [First gig in 8 years!]
"In 1992 a self-produced vinyl E.P called "Hourglass" was released to high acclaim and the band also had a new keboard player in the form of Alex Winton. To promote the E.P, Witching Hour continued to gig, supporting such bands as The Dream Disciples and London After Midnight."
"Witching Hour are now back with plans for digitally remastered releases, new promo videos and some live performances! oh and some new songs of course..."

Fall Victim [* London debut*]
""Horrorfalls II". Shit man, if this song doesn't grab you by your balls and make you wanna go out and kill some zombies, then you're probably undead already [8up Records]"

Unlike the last petition I put up, which was a bit of a joke, this one is over the highly worthwhile cause of live music.

Points to remember about the new legislation:

a.. The unlicensed provision of even one musician is a potential
criminal offence (although some places are exempt, including places of public religious worship, royal palaces and moving vehicles). Max penalty: £20,000 fine and six months in prison.

b.. The rationale is to prevent noise, crime and disorder, to ensure public safety, and the protection of children from harm.

c.. But broadcast entertainment, including sport and music, is exempt - no matter where, and no matter how powerfully amplified.

d.. In the transition to the new regime, bars with jukeboxes, CD
players etc were automatically granted a license to play recorded
music; but their automatic entitlement to one or two musicians was abolished.

e.. For the first time, private performances raising money for charity are licensable.

f.. School performances open to friends and family are licensable -
they count as public performances.

g.. Under the old regime all premises licensed to sell alcohol for
consumption on the premises were automatically allowed up to two live musicians (the 'two in a bar rule').

h.. In December, DCMS published research confirming that about 40% of these have lost any automatic entitlement to live music as a result of the new Act:

'Very few establishments that wanted a new license were denied it, and many who were previously limited to 2-in-a-bar now have the ability to stage music with 2 or more musicians... This contrasts, of course, with the fact that 40% of establishments now have no automatic means of putting on live music (i.e. they would have to give a Temporary Event Notice - in effect a temporary entertainment licence. Only 12 are allowed per premises per year. They cost £21 each.)

I interpret this as saying places like bars, student unions, community halls (for Battle Of The Bands type stuff) etc are all under threat.

From the Licensing Act 2003 survey, December 2006 report:

The conditions added to the old licenses include "keeping the doors and windows shut" and "restriction on the number of performers"-- so H&S could shut it down in the first instance, and in the second it might as well have stayed with the old 2-in-a-bar rule. Other restrictions include noise limiting/soundproofing being installed (costly to the venue and offputting for the management, so less likely to allow live music), restriction on size of audiences (so the bar could take twice as many customers were it not for the three old guys in hats playing their accordians), and limiting the number of events (which just plain sucks.) At the end of the day, a bar is a business.

4.5.10: One in seven (15%) of those who applied to include live music in their license applications (excepting direct conversions of a PEL) received objections that affected their applications to provide live music.

4.5.11: It appears that including conditions in the application initially did not necessarily lead to a reduction in objections. The difference between the percentage of applicants who chose to include conditions in their application who then received objections (19%) and those who chose not to include their own conditions who received objections (14%) is not statistically significant.

Which, as you can see, means The Man is a c***. I only got as far as page 39 before my brain started to melt but this was certainly enough to persuade me.
