Formed by Les Carter (aka Fruitbat) in 1998 after the breakup of Carter USM, Abdoujaparov are named after Tour De France cyclist Djamolidine Abdoujaparov. Abdoujaparov’s musical foundations are the joyous and shambolic influences of 1977 Punk Rock & New Wave, but there is so much more than that under the covers.

Eight EPs, four singles and six albums have been released on Spinach Records. The band has toured worldwide, racking up over 600 gigs, from tiny clubs to big festivals. 2020 saw the release of two limited release lock-down singles ‘We’re All Gonna Die’ and ‘A Trip Of A Lifetime’. Both sold out within 24 hours. 2021 Saw the sixth album ‘Race Home Grow Love’ released. 2022 saw the 20th Anniversary of our first studio album ‘Air Odeon Disco Pub’. We celebrated at a sold-out gig at London’s 100 Club, playing the album in its’ entirety for the first time. That’s just the boring factual stuff, come and see us, you will LOVE it. www.abdou.co.uk

Plus support:
Headsticks: With stunning receptions at this year’s two Beautiful Days festival shows which epitomised the energy, spirit, and raw passion of Headsticks, this band are proving themselves to be an irresistible addition to any line up. With an ever growing fanbase at their side, Headsticks are reaching new heights with their self proclaimed ‘Revolutionary Punk Roots Rock’n’Roll’ which has cross genre appeal seeing the band gaining endless plaudits from pillars of the Folk/Roots, Post Punk, Punk, and even the rock and blues fraternities. https://headsticks.co.uk/

+ En Heat: Avant-garde antifolk disco-psych rock-n-roll band from Brighton. It’s a dissection of the absurdity of our post-industrial, socio-economic system and an incitement to go out and have a damn good time. It’s a hot mess of wrestling masks and songs about walking in on your parents orgy and trillionaire buffoons on the moon. It’s nonsense. It’s not. Described by a punter as the best thing and the worst thing they had ever seen. En Heat features Filthy Pedro, Oliver Fist, William Aluminum and Adam Bell. https://enheat.band/
