A right royal revolt

IN true punk style, Sanctuary plays host to an anti-Jubilee concert on Monday night.
The Rock Against The Monarchy show in Barrow is set to be headlined by London hardcore outfit Moral Dilemma, who are up there with the UK’s biggest names in punk.
Featured on the Radio 1 Rock Show, the trio stand out from the crowd with a combination of male and female vocals and a full-on vicious delivery.
Local experimental grunge rock band Runt Hörnet will also be on hand to support. Another trio, this established outfit plays original material, spanning heavy rock, sometimes metal, and sometimes indie.
New tech-metal outfit Dethroned will be making only their second appearance, getting things off to a hard-hitting start.
Event organiser Colin Chatfield, of Unity In Music, says: “The Monarchy is an unaccountable and expensive institution, unrepresentative of modern Britain.
“Because we can’t hold the Queen and her family to account at the ballot box, there’s nothing to stop them abusing their privilege, misusing their influence or simply wasting our money.
“There’s children starving and homeless on the streets of Britain, and yet the un-elected monarchy flit from palace to palace with our earnings – Britain isn’t so great really, is it?
“Scrap the Monarchy and plough the financial savings back into the country – lets put the ‘unity’ back into the ‘community’.”
Music gets under way at the Abbey Road venue at 9pm and entry is payable on the door.
