The Baybeats 2018 line-up sees many returning acts, but home-grown surf punk rockers Force Vomit have the distinction of being the only ones that were there at the start - they played at the very first edition of Baybeats in 2002.

The quartet - comprising bassist Redzuan Hussin, 37; drummer Fazli Mohamed Adwel, 38; Alvin Wong, 41; and Eddino Abdul Hadi, 41, who share guitars and vocals - will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their album The Furniture Goes Up at their fifth Baybeats outing.
