RDF (Radical Dance Faction)
Founded by Chris Bowsher in Hungerford, 1986, and were originally known as 'Military Surplus'. RDF's music combines punk, dub, and Ska, while Chris' lyrics, spoken rather than sung, dealt mainly with political issues, including the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 in the song "Chinese Poem". Bowsher also witnessed first hand the Hungerford massacre, describing his experience in the song "Hot on the Wire".
RDF were a regular act on the UK free festival scene prior to the 1994 Criminal Justice Act, and were / are part of the anarcho punk movement.
RDF played Undercover 2016 and won over many new supporters and will be playing Undercover Festival again in September.

Come along and see why we highly rate this band…
From Surrey an ever present feature of Undercover Festival and one of only 3 acts to have played every one. The WitchDoktors have been honing their SuperPunkRock sound and shows, drawing on their 70s punk upbringing (Ramones, Clash, Pistols, Damned etc) and adding a good ol' full measure of trashy rock'n'roll-a-billy, a dash of 60s Psyche-Out Garage, a bitter twist of cuntry and whizzing it all up with some godamming loud geetars and their special brand of thunderous drums!
After 4 albums, a fistfull of singles plus hundreds of shows with like minded souls e.g. The Damned, The Revillos, The Fleshtones, Woggles, Phantom Surfers, The Saints, ? and the Mysterions, Man or Astroman?, Dogs D'Amour, Vince Ray and more recently The Polecats, The Germs, Macavity's Cat, they're fired up on high octane again and are out there gigging.
The Yalla Yallas
Taking their name from a Joe Strummer song is a good start while different from the Clash and the class of 76 and 77 and the 2nd wave of punk it is not difficult to see where these guys get their influences from mixed with other influences this is a band not to be missed. Added with some belting tunes and lyrics mainly socially and politically aware this is certainly a band to take notice of.
All the way from Leeds, if you have not seen them before you will not be disappointed by what many call their excellent if not somewhat “different” shows. Back down south after a very impressive set at AWOD in Feb.
Lead Shot Hazard
Playing Undercover Skank and Punk after a successful debut at Undercover Festival last year.
With a great can do attitude these guys are always welcome at one of our gigs.A cracking ska punk 6 piece haling form London.
Lead Shot Hazard is a coming together of third wave kids – fast-paced, horn-driven ska/punk whose aim in life to make audiences bounce, and then hum their songs on the way home. Imagine if Capdown had a baby with Streetlight Manifesto – Lead Shot Hazard makes that a reality.
Undercover stalwarts Skaciety a definite shoe in when considering the line-up for this gig.
While young in age they show a remarkable maturity in their attitude and stage presence.
The guys from Skaciety all met on a gap year, at a time when they were supposed to be studying for their GCSEs. Brought together by a love of American Ska / Punk music, and an even greater loathing of applied mathematics, they have been inseparable for the last 2 years, playing show after show, and relentlessly clocking up many miles, and Haribo Tangfastics on the way.
Their long awaited debut Album “...For Your Age" has been available for download since August 2014, which coincided with their first UK tour.
