Join Johnny Moped for a one night only at The Braithwaite Hall

As one of the  original ’77 punk bands, formed in Croydon over 50 years, they were at the heart of the London punk scene!

Originally ‘Genetic Breakdown’, the band came from darkest Croydon, and consisted of Johnny Moped (aka Paul Halford), Xerxes, Fred Berk, Dave Berk, Ray Burns (aka Captain Sensible) and Phil Burns. They jammed all day recording as they went and never played the same song the same way twice.

The band consists of remaining original members, Johnny Moped and Slimy Toad, joined by Rock ‘n’ Roll Robot (Rob from CASE) on guitar, Jacko Pistorious on bass, and new drummer Marty Love (on board after the recent departure of Dave Berk).

Supported by the Legendary Greyhound DJ Peter Fox and Croydon based post punk, new wave indie outfit, The Fanatics. Recently reformed after 42 years.
