The June Elegant Deadence is another fantastic line up. The phenominal Children on Stun headline, main support comes from the fantastic Klammer, fresh from supporting The Vapors and Richie Ramone, and the night is abley openend by the international line up of London's own The Creeping Terrors

Formed in August 1991 and taking their name from a song by the band The March Violets, Children on Stun appeared to enjoy a relatively large amount of success in a short space of time. The band's first gig took place at a club called The Crypt in Hastings. In the same year, the band also recorded their first demo, entitled Elegance, and made an appearance in Mick Mercer's second book on the gothic rock genre: this boosted the band's popularity and gained them much publicity.

In 1992, the band supported the popular goth rock band Rosetta Stone on their UK tour. Kyle Whipp (formerly of 'Soul Inside') joined the band in 1995 as their new Bass player with Manning moving to guitar. The band's first gig featuring Whipp took place at London's Camden Underworld. In August of the same year, the band went on a tour of Scandinavia. They released two albums, remixes, rareties and several EPs as one of the most popular Goth bands of the 1990s. In 1998 the band announced that they would be splitting up. They played their final gig at the Camden Underworld on 24 May 1998

During the 17 year split members would be involved in creating such other projects as Spares, Grooving in Green and The Stripper Project

On 15 May 2015 Children on Stun played a sell-out reunion gig at the o2 Academy2 in Islington, London. On the 4th of July 2015 Simon Manning, guitarist for the Stun sadly passes away. After coming to terms with the tragic loss of their friend the band played a charity event on Simons Birthday in October with help from long term friend and previous band-mate, Stuart Harper. With Stuart joining the band permanently as their guitarist shortly after...

The Stun have also appeared for the third time in their history at Whitby Gothic Weekend, this time supporting The Mission.

Leeds based Klammer. put a contemporary twist on the post-punk vibe. Although there's plenty of hooks in their songs there's an edgy, dark broodiness coursing through the sound of the band.
Klammer came to life in 2014, drawing from the members' shared love for all things angular, dark, loud and melodic.

They've shared stages with the likes of Richie Ramone, The Membranes, Art Brut, Department S and 999.
In August 2016 the band played to a capacity crowd at The 100 Club in London supporting Penetration. In the Spring of the same year, to coincide with the release of their second album, they toured the U.K. with Richie Ramone and his band. Klammer hit the road with Richie once again in November and December 2016 for a 16 night U.K. and Eire tour.

Horror and SCI-FI are the main influence in The Creeping Terrors, especially low budget old movies with a sinister sense of humour. Dark humour is also very important for the band lyrics and sound, it is a strange mix of horror, humour but also a feminist flavour which is not often mixed with the previous. It is very rare to have a band that incorporate horror on a female and feminist point of view. An aggressive unapologetic sound, fast, short songs and very much full of punk influences without forgetting their death rock roots and political views.
