This is an archive of the band profile for The Drastics.

The Drastics bring good old Punk Rock all the way from sunny Bradford.

Formed in 2009, after deciding there was room on the planet for one more bunch of noisemakers and also realising the need to do something with our lives - however dubious.

The result is some loud and slick punk rock, brimming with character. Our songs are honest accounts of the stuff going on around us, whether it be the desolation of our city by "zombie" councillors, out-of-control people or even tipping a few bob to a tramp. Our live shows have been praised as being full of energy and we've been privileged to share the bill with a lot of great bands working the scene including Goldblade, Discharge, Sham 69,Ed Tudor Pole, The Vibrators, Anti nowhere league plus more.

We were also the newest band to appear on Phoenix FM's Punk & Disorderly show, including some acoustic renditions of our songs which gained a good deal of positive audience response..
