Jackhammer head back to Rock Open
North Lincolnshire rockers Jackhammer enjoyed their debut in the Scunthorpe Rock Open so much last year that they are back for a second attempt.
The trio of Andy Shaw, on bass, Carl Pawson, on lead guitar and vocals, and Shaun Burrell, on drums, now in their fourth year together, will do battle in the opening heat at the Breeze Inn on October 5.
Shaun told What's On: "We finished in the semi-finals last year but we are confident of going a state further this time."
Joining them in next week's opening heat will be Scunthorpe punk rock trio Dyin' Flies. Their line-up consists of Jim Cooper, 36, on bass and vocals, Chris Heald, 31, on guitar, and Steve Kyte, 30, on drums.
Father's Day will soon be upon us, so Don't Forget....

Steve said: "Since we got together in July 2010 there have been two line-up changes on guitar.
"Our style is definitive punk rock 'n' roll full of good songs with nothing too serious. It doesn't have to be about anarchy and politics to be punk. We are writing new songs and material to put a smile on the faces of fans at this year's Rock Open."
