The Pukes - Punk Ukulele Ensemble at Rebellion
On the Saturday afternoon at the Rebellion Festival they held a couple of workshops where people could go along and learn the basic of playing the ukulele. At the end, everybody together - students and experts all played along to that great Cock Sparrer song "Because You're Young". Now this workshop session was absolutely packed - fully booked up in advance - and everybody seemed to really enjoy themselves.
Then the group played on stage in the Pavilion Theatre on the Sunday afternoon and, there again, it was packed out.
The band have just brought out a 4 track EP featuring "Because You're Young", "GLC" "Jet Boy Jet Girl" as well as an original song called " When Will I Learn".
