Debut 15 track album 'Bit On The Side' from Norfolk street punks On The Huh hits the independent record store shelves on 24th February - and it will fly!
Norwich based rockers On The Huh describe their sound as “Glam and Brick wall Punk rock riffs with lashings of street punk attitude“. The band formed in June 2021 in an unmanned studio during the height of the Covid pandemic. A little known rule meant that it was perfectly legal to rehearse together but not to visit each other’s homes for tea and biscuits. Strange times indeed..
Comprised of singer Sloss (Braindance), guitarist Chris (Infa Riot), bassist Dave (Special Duties) and drummer Tom (Infa Riot), this band have taken the scene by storm, opening The Pavilion Stage at Rebellion Festival last August. Their first release, 4 track EP ‘Peepshow‘, produced by Pat Collier (The Vibrators), came out on 7″ vinyl in December, and now we can look forward to a full album of their Punk ‘n’ Roll belters!
“Glory Days” – On The Huh
The band’s name is taken from the slang term ‘on the huh‘ meaning: Not straight or level; crooked or slanting. Heard primarily in Norfolk and Suffolk in the UK – “I thought I made sure the shelves were level when I hung them, but everything looks on the huh up there”. “This is one of the oldest parts of the city, so a lot of the buildings around here are pretty on the huh”.
There’s nothing wonky about their catchy upbeat music though, and the band have recently played shows with the UK Subs, Booze and Glory, Cockney Rejects, Last Resort and The Drowns. With gigs and festival appearances lined up for this year and next, make sure you go to see them live!

‘Usually found jumping around down the front at gigs, I also relish taking photos and videos, singing, speaking with fellow music fans, and asking musicians the questions nobody else does Writing about my favourite bands and connecting with people who love music too keeps me more-or-less sane I’ve worked for over 25 years at a video production company, mainly filming live music events, therefore I have an additional backstage perspective!’
