Riskee and the Ridicule
“All of the time that you’re wanting more and more – whether it’s money, recognition or fame – you’re never really truly enjoying the moment that you’re in. Right now, we don’t have anyone telling us what to do and that’s priceless. The moment is ours.”Riskee and The Ridicule offer a tour-de-force of politics, protest and punk that rests amongst motives of The Clash and Minor Threat. Relentless streams of wit, literacy and observational accuracy in the lyricism to parallel The Smiths and the Grime scene, and a barrage of hooks seeped in a heavy cloak that evoke the likes of Gallows and Refused; every member’s influence is allowed to coexist on record and on stage amidst the genuine and raw energy.
Derby’s finest hardcore/skacore/thrash/punk band. We make noises designed to get you skanking violently while your beer gets spilt.

10 years hence and they are still no further forward, mostly on account of their lack of talent, intelligence or ability to play music.
Paul still whines incessantly on about his ex-girlfriends, Adum still can’t play the bass, Bart is still terribly good looking and they have recently acquired a second guitarist in Tim Durand, originally of Hoofbite fame.
