About AD/HD

AD/HD are a Bon Scott era AC/DC tribute band, playing energetic, authentic AC/DC covers. We're based in Bristol in the UK, but will consider playing anywhere on the planet if you tempt us with cash, free booze and other such goodies.

Below is a video of us playing Live Wire at a charity event for dementia in honour of Malcolm Young, filmed early in 2015.

The band started playing around the UK in 2012 and have always focussed on entertaining the crowd and having fun. We have no plans of stopping. Ever.

We're constantly taking bookings so please get in touch if you want us to come and play for you.

History

AD/HD started rehearsing at the tail end of 2011 and started gigging in the spring of 2012.

AD/HD vocalist advert

AD/HD vocalist advert circa 2011

At the end of 2012, Anus Old (our Angus Young), had to move back to the USA. This made gigging a tad difficult. We thought about doing gigs via Skype, but after we'd sobered up, we realised it probably wouldn't work...

Anus Old ADHD - Angus Young ACDC

Anus Old (Angus Young)

We coaxed Anus E Older (who used to play for UK legends 'Hells Bells' back in the 90s / early norties) into the fold, to take on the role of Angus Young. Isn't he beautiful? Yes. He is. And he performs like a madman at every gig.

Scrotum Young performed his last gig with us at the Reckless in January 2014. He went to Devon to refurbish a war boat and hasn't been seen since.

Scrotum Young - Malcolm Young

Scrotum Young (Malcolm Young)

Scrotum Old joined us almost immediately and played his first gig in February 2014 after only 2 or 3 rehearsals - a proper baptism of fire. Giggage has been happening in copious amounts ever since.

Jenny C
Hi Chris, I discovered AD/HD at this year's Portishead Carnival and was hoping to come along to the Somerset Hall gig next Saturday (1st Sept) but can't seem to find any more info about getting tickets, start time etc. We're planning on inducing friends to your delights who will be travelling from some way away so don't want to arrive without any info and find you're not playing after all or that we've missed it! Would you mind letting me know where I can get further info? Many thanks, Jenny

Chris Fielden
Hi Jenny, thanks for getting in touch. No problem - you can see more on our facebook group (see link at top of page). Doors open about 8, we have Priest Unleashed supporting - they are an EXCELLENT Judas Priest cover band who do all the costumes and theatrics. They will prob go on about 8.15pm. I suspect we'll be on about 9.30 / 10ish and it'll finish around 12. You can get tickets in advance from Mad Harry's Fancy Dress and Party Shop on Portishead High Street for 6 quid, or on the door for 7 quid. All the profits are going to Help for Heroes. Let me know if you need any more info. And come say hi on the night so I know who you are! Cheers, Chris

Bob
fucking shit hot lads seen you 3 times now gets better all the time keep it up you could be better then hells bells lets have more dates .really enjoyed saturday evening. see you started to get good following. lets have more dates

Chris Fielden
Thanking you mighty Bob, more coming soon!! Very slim possibility of one in November, but more likely Feb 2013. Watch this space...

Stretch
Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
My Mrs has just admitted to listening to AC/DC. So I think "great, lets go down the Portishead working mens club to see AD/HD" (Being a close up version of AC/DC). But I see you have no more gigs planned this year.
Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
So when do we get our next dose of you guys? Please let it be the 4th or 5th of Jan, as I can't wait!

Chris Fielden
Sorry Stretch - there is a VERY slim chance of a gig in November, but it's more likely to be February I'm afraid - Anus (Angus) has buggered off to the USA for a while, which makes gigging a tad tricky. I suppose we could try doing it via Skype, but that probably wouldn't work too well...

I'll get dates up here as soon as we have them confirmed!

Mervyn O
Guys, your gig list shows you at the Portishead Workmans Club on June 6th, but the club have listed you for the 13th June, a date I took when I last saw you there. Which is it?

Chris Fielden
Mervyn, thanks for letting me know. So far as I know we're booked in for Sat 6th June 2015 but will check with the club in case there's been a mix up!

Chris Fielden
Mervyn, it seems we had the wrong date - it IS the 13th June! Thanks for letting us know - that could have been a right cock-up!

Mervyn O
My pleasure. Look forward to seeing you all then, Merv
