Cookie Party! presents an awesome new night of independent and underground alternative DIY bands and DJs, starting 4th November at Chelmsford's loudest livest venue, Barhouse. Ste McCabe – Artrocker favourite and legendary gay activist treat from Cherryade Records. Catchy and sarcastic-political-revolutionary dance punk has won over pop stars and human rights campaigners alike. "If you like punk, you'll love this. If you're queer and like punk, you'll sp*nk your pants. Ste McCabe is authentic and brilliant" - Boy George "An articulate attack on the homophobia inherent in organised religion, as well as a cheeky punk-pop party record in its own right. Hunt his remarkable album down before it gets banned - or McCabe gets shot" - Artrocker “The Henry Rollins of gay politics." - The Devil Has The Best Tuna "Proper raw punk rock laced with positive anger and a welcoming smile. Ste McCabe is a national treasure" - Org Records http://www.myspace.com/stemccabe STELLA PACE - Riot grrrl from Atlanta, USA, has played with the likes of Sleater-Kinney, Jack off Jill and Bikini Kill all over the USA and generally caused havoc and outrage in the US South with her pro-queer and pro-sex workers rights stance. ..."Fierce Georgian riot-grrl tribe Stella Zine's “vocal harmonic revolution” and stirring melodies evoke X-Ray Spex. Amazing and inspirational." - LA WEEKLY " A self-proclaimed feminist, activist, musician and exotic dancer....known for her ability to shock even the roughest crowds.....Stella is an endless source of inspiration and entertainment." - Best of Atlanta -Critics Choice www.myspace.com/stellapace Death of the Elephant – 4th wave riot grrrl/boy. Angry kids who won't tidy their room or their music. “Ace riot grrl act... Slashing guitars, just the right levels of rawness and raucousness” - R*E*P*E*A*T Fanzine "Guitars so sharp they could cut your throat while lead singer Dee screams and screeches like a riot grrrl at a beauty pageant. It's intense, raucous garage punk like a head on collision between X Ray Spex and Bikini Kill... a blast of energy that could breathe life into a, well, dead elephant!” - The Devil Has The Best Tuna Raw, trashy, shouty, punky, messy, destructively beautiful, dangerous car crash music and attitude and do not mess... we like them. " - Organ Magazine www.myspace.com/deathoftheelephant

“They’re deliciously raw and messy... Noisy trash raw old school messy garage punk rock and the last thing they need is budget and production and ‘proper things’ like that destroying their positive energy and that beautifully raw edge.”
