It’s been an epic 5 years for The Bullet and to celebrate in style we’ve invested in a brand-spanking new Void Acoustics Sound System and invited BENNY PAGE as our guest of honour to blast out some blissful bass for our birthday bash on Friday June 5th.

Heavily inspired by the basslines of Dub music, Ragga, Jungle and Hip Hop, a Benny Page production doesn’t go unheard in today’s ever-changing bass music culture. His name has become synonymous with heavyweight dance-floor tracks and clinical mixing skills.

Over the past decade the Shy Fx protégé has played a definitive role in shaping the sounds of the UK’s drum and bass movement and is currently preparing his first studio album voiced by an array of Jamaican vocal legends including Beenie Man, Protoje, Big Youth and Assasin.

Joining Benny for the celebration of the century are the banging brother duo, PHIBES, dub- reggae collective DUBTASTIC MUSIC, as well as up and coming female rapper HOLLY FLO LIGHTLY.

Recent winners of the Krafty Kuts “Back To The Beats” DJ competiton the PHIBES brothers never fail to ignite the dance floor with their own exclusive edits and dance floor bangers.

Also donning the decks with a deliriously delicious set of tasty tracks is DJ ORANGE. Expect a seamless selection of big booty basslines,  juicy jungle, ghetto-flexing glitch-hop
and raw ragga riddims.

With the spate of closures of some of London’s best independent music venues there is
more to celebrate than ever that The Silver Bullet is  standing strong with 5 years of excellent events under our belts.

So get your party hats out and rejoice that Finsbury Park’s favourite late night, live music
venue will be hosting the best artists in this bustling bar for many years to come…

Long live the forever independent Silver Bullet!!!

Laura Marling Picks the Silver Bullet!

Posted January 22, 2015

A singular talent, Laura Marling recently confirmed plans for her next album. ‘Short Movie’ will be released on March 23rd, with the singer now confirming a short, intimate burst of live dates.

Opening in Hebden Bridge on January 28th, dates include shows in London, Edinburgh and finally Bristol.

We’re massively excited to announce that the legendary folk singer Laura Marling is set to grace the Silver Bullet stage for the London leg of this tour!

Please Note – Registration has now closed for the ticket lottery – the lucky winners will be notified by email before the 16th Jan

“I’ve always been told that I’m an old soul. And I’m not. I just have a deep voice and a stern face. I am actually young. I hadn’t had chance to stop and think about that before.”

A little over a year ago, Laura Marling came off the road after touring her hugely successful fourth album Once I Was an Eagle, and immediately set about recording its successor. “I literally rolled out of the van and into the studio — a decision made by my own stubbornness,” she recalls. “And then I just stopped cold turkey.” Marling’s fifth album, Short Movie, is the result of an extended period of stopping and thinking. “I realised that I hadn’t been in a place for longer than two or three weeks since I was 16,” she explains. “I thought ‘I wonder what will happen if I try and root myself somewhere?‘ Look back over the past eight years.”

The Launch // London’s New Out Of This World Record Release Party!

Posted March 25, 2014

This spring The Silver Bullet is gearing up to rock the crowds with the brand spanking new event The Launch; London’s exclusive out of this world record release party, premiering on Wednesday 2nd April 2014.

The Launch

Wednesday 2nd April will see the launch party of The Launch at The Silver Bullet, and lucky attendees will get to party to the incredible sounds of the Buddhist Punkz who will be rocking the stage and the supreme Silver Bullet Martin Audio Sound System for the release of their self-titled EP being dropped on 1st April 2014! Along with Buddhist Punkz headlining, there’s an incredible line-up of support acts on the night; Local lads The Catchpenny Broadcast will be reining in the blues in style whilst Yorkshire boys Chasing Athena will be hyping up the crowd with their rocking riffs.

Buddhist Punkz emerged when Marcel Atteen (AKA MC Sirreal) met brothers Dave and Rich Budgen whilst performing with the UK Breakbeat act The Freestylers. They formed an alliance of awesome after enlisting the skills of drummer Jack Cowens (Dub Pistols) – with a common interest in old skool hip hop, rock and metal they soon started talking about the idea of forming their own band in that vein. Fusing together old skool hip-hop with a dash of rock and a sprinkle of metal, and personally describing their sound as “Black Sabbath meets Rage Against The Machine in London Town”, their release party at The Launch will be one energetic gig not to miss!


Don’t forget to pop the date in your diaries as the opening party of The Launch will be THE place to be on Wednesday 2nd April. Come by for wicked acts, pure party vibes and not forgetting some of the best drinks deals in London!
