Louder Than War has been an official stockist of Calling Festival tickets for many years, we currently have in stock tickets for the Scotland (Glasgow), North West (Manchester), and North East (Newcastle) events – head to the Shop now, to secure the best prices.

However, why pay for a ticket when you could win a pair to see this lot??

To get your hands on the tickets all you have to do is answer this simple question:

Way back in 1977, Glasgow City Council were a bit wary of punk rock gigs, they famously cancelled the Sex Pistols scheduled appearance at The Apollo. However members of the Council did attend another gig at The City Halls in Candleriggs (a local authority hall) on Wednesday, June 22 to ‘assess’ a punk event; two stage invasions occurred during the gig, whilst a band member acknowledged the watching council delegation by telling them that if they didn’t like it “they could just fuck off.

As a result the City Council effectively banned any punk events in the city area.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
