||DUTCH MICHAELS' GIG OF THE WEEK
CAT SCRATCH FEVER 2
The White Lion, Streatham, Sarf London
Saturday 29th March 2014
The Cat Scratch Fever event returns to rock The White Lion in Streatham on 29th March for a second time, once more in support of Music 4 Children and Streatham Cats Rescue.
With the first event generating over £1,200 in charity donations as well as a record breaking bar takings for the venue (!), Cat Scratch Fever was a hugely enjoyable success for the two charities and music fans alike.
Cult Hard Rock outfit Stampede have been newly added to the bill. No Quarter are aiming to top the previous event with another outstanding Rock line up, put together to support local charities Music4Children and Streatham Cats Rescue Group, and including some South London based artists.

The line-up is as follows:
Guitar legend/blues rock Psychedelic Shredmeister - this Glam Punk Sleaze Rock Frontman is known for many things including stepping in and saving the day for Ozzy Osbourne in the aftermath of guitar legend Randy Rhoad's tragic death and hit records, world tours and international fame as Ian Gillan's guitaist.
Tormé also formed Desperado with Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider which also featured ex Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr, and fronted his own band Electric Gypsies, and later Tormé, including Phil Lewis of the L.A. Guns/Girl fame.
The Peckham Cowboys
"Looking like Dickensian urchins with a Faustian twist, and sounding like The Faces if Trent Reznor ever got hold of them, The Peckham Cowboys are not a band you'd trust to park your car" - Classic Rock.
The band's second album 'Ten Tales From The Gin Palace' has just been released to critical acclaim - the band features founding members Marc Eden and Dale Hodgkinson who are joined by Timo Kaltio (Hanoi Rocks, Izzy Stradlin Band, Cheap & Nasty), Nigel Mogg (Quireboys), Duncan McKay (Primal Scream), and Ryan McCormick (Steven Adler Band).
Blueberry Bush are a female fronted Blues Rock outfit from Streatham via Poland. A storming show at the White Lion recently makes the band an ideal replacement for Jimmy Owen.
