Club Velocity was born in Reading, Berkshire March 2003. Inspired by London nights such as Death Disco and Club Fandango. New exciting bands, with a DIY attitude. Usually promote between 40 and 50 shows a year.
We have helped and brought the likes of BLOC PARTY, GLASVEGAS, THE RIFLES, PETE AND THE PIRATES, SIX NATION STATE, INME, LOSERS, MIDIMIDIS, BEN MARWOOD, SIXTY WATT BAYONETS, THE AMAZONS, SUNDARA KARMA, MATT MALTESE, MARK MORRISS, DICK VALENTINE, bis, SHONEN KNIFE, TV SMITH, JOHN OTWAY and dozens of others. Whilst others claim industry will turn up, they have to our shows in the past, at least three of the most powerful chaps in A&R; a wealth of music managers (who look after Radiohead, Libertines et al) Is that important? Probably not...
Club Velocity is punk in attitude. No time for fakes or fools.Or bands who are idiots. Always boys. Never get any nonsense with girls. It's fun and when it works it's magic and rock'n'roll should all be about magic. We are very pro punter and influenced by going to rubbish run by idiots!
