The Bayonets, are streetpunk band based in Novi Sad. The story began in the summer of 2004. It started out as a joke, but few weeks later, after we were joined by one more guitarist , things in the band started to move in a bit more serious way. After only three rehearsals in that line up, we went in studio to record our first song "Our Fight". The positive reactions that we\'ve received from local punk & oi! fans, but also from many people abroad, were sign for us to move are asses. We practiced very often, made new songs... Of course, all that work would lose any sense without live performances. We played our debut gig on December the 3rd with Italian band Inerdzia, in packed local club "Enter". In the same month, by the end of 2004, we visited studio again. The band recorded 5 songs that we puted on promo cd.
After that band continued to play gigs frequently, mainly in our area (Novi Sad and province Vojvodina), but also in Croatia.Very soon The Bayonets became known in ex-Yugoslav republics as band that knows how to share the energy with the crowd. Since then, band played around 70 gigs (including several European tours) and shared stage with bands like Angelic Upstarts, Cockney Rejects, Blaggers ITA, KUD Idijoti, Wisdom in chains, Los Fastidios, Brigada flores Magon etc.
The main musical inspiration for The Bayonets are many old <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">UK</st1:country-region></st1:place> punk & oi! bands from end of 70\'s/ first years of 80\'s, but we are also strongly influenced by today\'s streetpunk scene from <st1:place w:st="on">Europe</st1:place> and US. And probably, our guitar solos will remind you of some punk\'n\'roll bands.
We don\'t see ourselves as a political band, although many people see us that way. We sing about various topics from everyday life (social problems, punk scene, fun, personal...). But we are not ashamed of our stance which is strongly antifascist. Our opinion is that there should be no place in punk scene for things like bigotry, conservatism, racism, xenophobia etc. Of course, we don\'t attack these things within the scene only, we criticize them as a threat to society too.
The band released only one official abum, called ‘’Our Fight’’ on German label ‘’Siempre contra’’ in 2007 (vinyl version by ‘’Conehead records’’, another German DIY label). Few months ago band visited studio after long period. Result is 6 new punk-rock songs that will be published on split album with Dipsomaniacs from <st1:place w:st="on">Sunderland</st1:place>. Stay tuned!
Feel free to contact us. We\'ll try to inform you about are activities in the future. Keep the faith, fight intolerance & stay free! Best wishes from The Bayonets.
The Dipsomaniacs are back with more of their old school influenced punk. Six brand new tracks form their half of a split cd with The Bayonets. The new Dipso tunes carry on from their debut album ‘Gambrinus’ with more of the same energetic, sing-a-long, tuneful punk n roll, songs that you’ll think you’ve heard before but then realise you haven’t. Give it a listen and the Dipso’s guarantee you’ll not be able to get them out of your head.
