Roll out the barrel and batten down the hatches, those bad old In-Stinks gunslingers are comin' to town !





Between 1983 and 1988 The In-Stinks reigned supreme in West London. Rising from the ashes of the Nightcreatures (Angus & Sap) and Nervous System (John & Fuzz), Southall's finest (well, since The Ruts of course !) fused discordant & crazy rhythms, displaying heavy influences of The Fall, Captain Beefheart and The Birthday Party. For the "Southall Contingent" (or Southall Punx as more commonly known), In-Stinks gigs became a meeting place for the like-minded and many of these evenings occurred at the legendary Bumbles Wine Bar in Acton.
