Mods and punks will get a chance to hear some of their favourite songs when two bands play Fraserburgh this weekend.

Target 5 and special guests 16 Again will belt out tunes from the two genres when they play Dalrymple Hall on November 26.

Aberdeen based band Target 5 have been together since 2010 and play songs from the 60s, late 70s, early 80’s Mod scene- including songs by bands such as The Who, The Kinks, The Small Faces and The Jam along with a bit of RnB and soul.

Since getting together theyhave played with many of the bands who have influenced them including The Lambrettas The Purple Hearts and Secret Affair as well as regularly playing gigs in Scotland and England.

They are returning to play Liverpool’s Cavern Club next year for the fourth year in a row.

Also playing are special guests 16 Again, a punk covers band from in and around Aberdeen who play classic first wave songs from the initial 1977 explosion.

Initially active between 2004-2008, they played many gigs around Scotland, often sharing a stage with bands they were covering in the set.

Unable to hang up their bondage trousers, they have recently decided to dip a toe back in the water. Don’t expect to hear Teenage Kicks or the Blitzkrieg Bop though. These guys specialise in the lesser known nuggets of the era.

Doors open at 20:00, as it is a “Bring Your Own Booze” event, numbers are limited and entry is by ticket only with seating and tables for all attending.

Tickets are available from Motor Parts in Fraserburgh and cost £10, or contact the band via their Facebook page.
