Arthur Billingsley presents

Now in their 41st year, 999 remain popular Punk headliners. 

999 were first conceived in late 1976 when Nick Cash (vocals/guitar) and Guy Days (vocals/lead guitar), who were at school together, decided to form a group. Within a couple of months they had teamed up with Jon Watson (bass) and Pablo Labritain (drums) and 999 were officially born.

Their first gig was at the Northampton Cricket Club in January 1977. Interest in the band was immediate and constant gigging around London brought with it critical acclaim and a hard core following of supporters from Southall, calling themselves "The Crew". These ranks were soon swollen by the Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Munich, Vienna, Zagreb, Stockholm, Oslo, Berlin, New York, LA., Toronto, Philadelphia, and San Francisco "Crews" each proving as dedicated as the last.

The frenzy and raw energy of the early days were captured by their debut single I’m Alive on the bands own Labritain label and sold well enough to become a minor hit. Next through their association with United Artists records the second and third singles, Nasty Nasty and the now classic Emergency were released both scaling the lower reaches of the charts and confirming 999 to be one of the major forces in the British New Wave Movement.
