The band perform at the bikers' Bulldog Bash...

Fun Lovin’ Criminals showcased two new songs at this year’s 14th annual BULLDOG BASH, the HELL’S ANGELS festival held at LONG MARSTON near STRATFORD-UPON-AVON at the weekend (12 August).

The band headlined the four-day event, which drew around 25,000 motorcycle fanatics, and though they played a set geared towards the hits, still managed to give a taste of new material.

The first new number was a frenetic C&W hoedown called ‘Dickholder’, while the second – entitled ‘Where The Bums Go’ – was described by frontman Huey as “a punk rock song”, and seems a likely contender for a future single.


The Criminals were supported by Alabama 3, who were joined onstage by David McAlmont during ‘Peace In The Valley’. The festival, attended primarily by bikers and their families, also featured Therapy? and The Almighty, while American Harley hero Ralph ‘Sonny’ Barger was on hand to sign copies of his book ‘Hell’s Angel’, which purports to tell the real story behind the Rolling Stones‘ infamous Altamont concert. Unlike that tragic event, there was no sign of trouble at the peaceful Bulldog Bash, despite a rush to check out the wet T-shirt competition which followed the Criminals‘ set.
