999 and The Heavy Drapes Live 999 are back at Dreadnoughtrock in this Ticket Special supported by The Heavy Drapes. 999 are an English punk rock band, formed in London in December, 1976. From the period of 1976 to 1985, the lineup of 999 consisted of Nick Cash (vocals, guitar), Guy Days (lead guitar), Jon Watson (bass) and Pablo LaBrittain (drums). (As a result of injuries sustained in a motor accident, LaBrittain was temporarily replaced by drummer Ed Case aka Paul Edwards in 1980.) Jon Watson left the band in 1985; being replaced by Danny Palmer, who remained with the band until 1991. Palmer was replaced by Arturo Bassick, who remains the bassplayer with 999 to this date. Between 1978 and 2007, 999 released fourteen singles and twelve studio albums. Five of the singles released by 999 between 1978 and 1981 charted within the Top 75 in the UK Singles Chart, with one further single released by 999 in 1978, Homicide, charting within the Top 40. In addition, as a result of extensive touring in the United States in the early 1980s, the band's third and fourth studio albums: The Biggest Prize in Sport and Concrete,each charted on the U.S. Billboard 200. Despite having formed in 1976, 999 have only experienced two permanent changes to their original lineup and has continued to record and play live to the present day, leading Allmusic to describe the band as 'one of the longest-lived groups of the punk era.' It is a pleasure to see these guys back in West Lothian at Dreadnoughtrock after a brilliant event in 2014.
