Time: 8:00pm. Admission: FREE. Age restrictions: No Minors. POW Promotions and Percy’s Cafe Bar proudly presents… Healthy Junkies Nina Courson, Healthy Junkies glamorous yet rebel lead punkster ran away from home when she was fourteen and was found in Paris at the foot of the Sacre Coeur church with tears in her eyes, Nina was then taken under wing by a gang of Parisian hoodlums. Soon after, Nina discovered her saviors had broken wings, an online chat room lead Miss Nina to be fostered by a Muslim transvestite named MoMo. In the tranny underworld of Paris, Nina found her true musical muse in David Bowie’s music, moving to London in 2007 to pursue her own rock n roll rite of passage. Nina took several low paying day jobs to keep her night’s free to scour the clubs in London for a band and destiny awaited when she found guitarist Phil-Honey-Jones who at the time was in a psychedelic rock – outfit named HiroshAmour. Phil had left his dysfunctional home as a young lad as well, and the two went on their way seeking solace in the world of music. Naming the band Healthy Junkies, reflecting the mental health epidemic currently spreading like wildfire through the core of the western society. Nina and Phil arrived at this name as a reaction/rebellion to the numbing and dumbing down of the use of so many pharmaceutical meds such as Prozac, Fluoxetine and OxyContin. Currently Dave Whitmore plays bass and Adam Lewis or Pumpy play drums. They have been hitting the road hard in the UK and Europe for a few years now and so have built a large following, pulling 1,000+ at the Arena stage for Rebellion Punk Festival 2018. During these years of constant gigging the band have supported such iconic punk bands as The UK Subs, GBH, The Rezillos, Theatre of Hate, Sham 69, The Professionals and The Damned. These bands have inspired Healthy Junkies in their writing and given the band a punk rock edge to mix with their grunge/goth and psychedelic rock roots. The touring continued with Irish, European, UK and US tours in 2018. “Delirious Dream” the band’s fourth studio album was released on Banana Castle Records via Cargo Records on October 12th. It was recorded at Bark Studios by Brian O’Shaughnessy who recorded Primal Scream and My Blood Valentine at the very same studio in the 90s. It was mastered by Pete Maher whose recent projects have included The Pixies, The Rolling Stones and Jack White. The Healthy Junkies went to America for the first time on October 17th! Rodney Bingenheimer former KROQ DJ and current Sirius XM DJ inspired this tour when Nina and Phil came over for holiday last year and Bingenheimer began giving the band airplay spins. Phil and Nina also have been running their own monthly night in Camden, London for six years now. It is called Punk and Roll Rendezvous. The night has become so successful that they decided to host a 3- day festival both in 2017 and 2018 . The criteria for the night is FREE entry and always with at least one band on the bill from outside London, sometimes abroad. They will be scouting for US bands to bring over to London to play their much sought after night. Punk and roll rendezvous and Healthy junkies have one main goal; that is to bring people together. People from across the board wishing to express themselves and be authentic without prejudice. Mixing Punk Rock with Grunge, Psychedelic Rock, New Wave, Garage Rock and Goth.

Flowing harmonies and unique lyrics, that are tongue in cheek but Always written from the heart. Incomparable to a single genre.” A very vibrant & colourful mixture of style, culture, sex, musical influence & facial hair all puked up onto a backdrop of thumping beats, grinding bass, screeching guitar & soaring harmonies.
