Since its inauguration into the Nottingham music scene in 2003, Rescue Rooms has developed some rich history...
Everyone from Amy Winehouse, The Libertines, Ellie Goulding, and Happy Mondays have taken to the stage in this 450-capacity venue from DHP Family. It’s also next door to both Rock City and Stealth, creating a powerhouse of a venue trio for the city’s music festivals.
There’s a bar area open every day from 4pm, two rooms for gigs, and two patios, so you can always do some al fresco sipping on the warmer days. There’s a large range beers on tap which includes constantly changing guest lines, as well as cask ales, and fridges with more beers than you can shake a stick at.

Pist.On at Rescue Rooms
Tuesday 26 March 2019 18:30
Formed in the USA in 1993, PIST.ON have released two albums - ‘Number One’ through Fierce Recordings / Atlantic Records in 1996 and ‘$ell Out’ through Mayhem / Music For Nations in 1999. In addition the band released the independent 'Saves' EP in 2001.
The Brooklyn based band is built around core members Henry Font (Vocals / Guitar), Burton Gans (Guitar) and Jeff McManus (Drums) together with new bass guitarist Jack Hanley (ex The Deadlyz).
PIST.ON's unique perspective to their art, sombre dedication to their music, and the bleak, dark humour proves their most charming characteristic. Their sound can at times be difficult to categorise, mixing extremely heavy, mid-paced guitar riffs with occasional vocal harmonies. Possessing an acute grasp of extremes, they manage to maintain a pop edge on tracks that aren't self-congratulatory enough to be metal, are too witty to be goth, and far too accessible to be freaky. Sometimes, you just have to let a band's music speak for itself.
The 1996 Josh Silver (Type O Negative) produced debut album, ‘Number One’, originally available through Fierce Recordings, had an immediate impact. Following its release, the album soon garnered impressive reviews from the British music press, helping propel the band to greater heights around the globe. The attention the band gained sparked major label interest from Atlantic Records, who subsequently secured a deal for the worldwide release of ‘Number One’, giving the band the major label support they had been seeking.
The backing of Atlantic Records made the album and the first single ‘Grey Flap’ widely available, triggering an instant reaction with fans, leading to strong sales in Europe and the USA where ‘Number One’ quickly approached Gold status.
By 1999 the band were back with their original label, releasing the Daniel Rey (Ramones/The Misfits) produced second album '$ell Out’. It was a reaction to the troubling experiences the band had encountered under the rule of Atlantic Records. PIST.ON had made the decision to leave Atlantic after coming under pressure from the label to make a number of changes which the band were unhappy with.
A European tour in the summer of 2001, principally to test out new material for the next album; tentatively titled ‘Saves’, gave a taste of what would have been yet another slab full of rage fuelled emotion. The new songs saw a closer collaboration between Henry Font and Burton Gans with the latter taking a stronger role in the song writing. With further input from McManus the band showed a self assured confidence to follow their own path in producing the inimitable PIST.ON sound.
Alongside numerous headline tours, PIST.ON featured on some of the high profile tours of the time supporting the likes of Marilyn Manson, Korn, Clutch, Fu Manchu, Type O Negative, Queensryche and The Misfits.
Stress and pressure on the band took its toll when in 2001, after many tours and no personal time the band decided, at the height of their popularity, that they'd had enough of the industry. Bass player Val.ium decided to leave the band, a move which ultimately saw the rest of the band retreat in to a self imposed exile to deal with professional and personal issues.
Fast forward to the present where PIST.ON fans and friends still remain loyal. Constant requests for the band to re-ignite have finally been acknowledged. Never having split up, PIST.ON are set to emerge from a lengthy hiatus to mark and celebrate twenty five years since the bands inception.Full details
