RESO16_FULL_WEBFollowing our piece here about the Punk.London 40 years celebrations including the Resolution 2016 gigs at the 100 Club … and the support of the Mayor and Lottery funding.

The 100 Club have contacted Louder Than War to  clarify the situation .

They stated firmly that it had always been their intention to put on a Punk Festival to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of  UK punks birth in 1976 and the weeks gigs were planned and booked well before the involvement of Punk dot London with its association and support from the Mayors Office.  

They say, and I quote “Your article implies that Resolution is funded by Boris and the GLA which it absolutely is not. This is all on the 100 Club , it’s our festival and Crucial Talent books the bands. We are happy to support the Punk London programme but this festival is not for or funded by them.

This explains why the artists playing knew nothing about Boris or the Lotterys alleged involvement..

Hopefully that clarifies things.  It was not my or Louder Than Wars intention to mislead.

Enjoy the gigs everyone who is going and as for Punk.London and its future Lottery-funded events, hopefully they will let us know more about them so we can keep you informed.

Ged Babey is 56. from Southampton, has written since 1985 for Sound Info, Due South, various fanzines and websites, contributed to Record Collector magazine and was sole author of 'Punk Throwback' fanzine -the name of which was taken from an insult hurled at him by the singer with a young band he managed for a while. Ged believes that all good music and art has a connection with punk rock.


  1. Curious how the 100 club can state that they ‘are happy to support the Punk London programme but this festival is not for or funded by them’ and yet the Punk London Press release says – in addition to ‘Punk London is supported by the Mayor of London’, and ‘Punk London has received a £99,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund – that ‘Punk London will kick off with the Resolution Festival’… Perhaps the 100 Club should be contacting Punk London to clarify matters rather than Louder than War…
