The Taproom @ Drop Dead Twice Presents: Protex

After playing a phenomenal set to a packed house in August, Drop Dead Twice are privileged to welcome back first wave NI Punk band Protex to the venue for what will be another memorable night of Powerpop/Punk classics from their Catalogue.

The Taproom Drop Dead Twice Dublin.
Doors 8pm. Entry €10

Protex are a Belfast Punk band which formed in 1978. Their first records were issued on Good Vibrations records. They formed part of the first wave of Belfast punk bands along with the likes of label-mates The Undertones and Rudi. 
Protex's debut live performance was in 1978 at Knock Methodist Church Hall in Belfast. By regular gigging around the city the band soon came to the attention of Terri Hooley. Hooley prompted them to record a three track debut 45 which he released on his Good Vibrations record label in November 1978 as issue GOT6. The Belfast label had previously released singles by Rudi, Victim, The Outcasts and The Undertones.

Terry (Aus) / Extravision / Music City

THEY'RE BACK!

"TERRY is a latent man of mystery. Terry is also a band from Melbourne, Australia. Divide him in half and you split the genders, into quarters and you get Amy Hill (also of Constant Mongrel, School Of Radiant Living), Xanthe Waite (Mick Harvey Band, Primo), Zephyr Pavey (Eastlink, Total Control, Russell St Bombings) and Al Montfort (UV Race, Dick Diver, Total Control). Guitars, bass, drums, all four sing. Terry are busy people and Terry is a particularly active project too, having released two EPs and a full length album ('Terry HQ') last year on Upset The Rhythm. In 2017 it proved time to 'Remember Terry', whilst this summer Terry returns with 'I'm Terry'!"
