Previous Gigs


Ambition Demolition was formed in April (2016) with Alan Cattermoul on guitar & vocals, Clive Buff Cooper on Bass & vocals and AL Stone on drums. Some good fun Punk Rock tunes followed, and in less than four months we had managed to get together an albums worth of 12 songs!! Our first 6 track EP, Punk for Life, was recorded at the end of 2016 in true DIY style. Our first   album Treason For Today was released in 2018, recorded at Berry Hill Studios and produced by John David, well known for his work with Shakin' Stevens and Status Quo. Our second album, Not Normal has just been released, also recorded at Berry Hill, it demonstrates that we have progressed, but kept the live edge and variety. Also, we have more songs in the pipeline, and it's really nice to have the pleasure & option of moving the songs around to suit every situation!! All 3 releases are available from Bandcamp.

We had our first gig @Frog & Fiddle in Cheltenham Glos. Saturday 24th September 2016 with lots more gigs now played supporting, amongst others, UK Subs, 999, The Lurkers, Subhumans, Vice Squad, Chelsea, The DeRellas, Hands Off Gretel, The Members, The Satellites and Reno Divorce from the States. We've also played a number of festivals  including Bash the Bishop, Degeneration, Juzbcuz, No More Heroes, Mayhem at Mick's and Rebellion as well as appearances at the famous 100 Club and Hope and Anchor. Many more gigs in the pipeline and we'll put flyers for all those and more up on here as soon as we can!! We have merchandise at all gigs too, so keep your eyes open for that !
