Back again

26 May 2015

Apologies, I’ve been in an induced coma while recovering from a hangover. If Bunny ever offers you a non-Jager bomb saying “just drink that”, just say “no”.

So where are we? The XSLF gig in Tottenham turned into a free gig without XSLF due to unforeseen circumstances on their part. Top marks to the promoters for putting something together at short notice, and all for free: Menace, Morgellons, Phoenix Chroi, La Flamme and Liliths Army.

Birmingham the following day, upstairs at the Actress & and Bishop with Morgellons (our personal stalkers), Voodoo Club, The Real Detonators and the Leech Bleeders. The Leech Bleeders had enough guitarists to be a punk Lynyrd Skynyrd, buckets of enthusiasm, and a sense of humour, which works for me. Also, they provided the amps, so thanks guys.

And to come:

High Wycombe this Friday, 29th with Knock Off, No Lip and Molotov Sex Bomb. The Phoenix Bar, Bridge St. HP11 2EL. From 8pm, £5 entry.

Back to the Guildford City Social Club on Saturday, 30th with The One Chord Wonders, Phoenix Chroi and Derek and Bob’s Live Transmission. Guidford City Social Club, 73 Josephs Road, Guildford GU1 1DN, from 8pm.


Something for nothing!

XSLF have had to pull out of this Friday’s gig (8th May) at T-Chances. Instead the bill will now be :

  • Menace
  • Morgellons
  • Phoenix Chroi
  • LaFlamme
  • Liliths Army

And entrance will be free, as in nothing to pay to get in.

So, broke and depressed by the election result? Get to T-Chances, 399 Tottenham High Road, London N17 6QN. Doors open 7:30pm. There’s no excuse!

While we’re on the subject, it’s Birmingham on Saturday:

Punk and Disorderly

Featuring Menace, Morgellons, Leech Bleeders, Voodoo Club, The Real Detonators at the Actress and Bishop, 35 Ludgate Hill, Birmingham B3 1EH.

9th May, starts 6PM, a fiver entry, bargain!

Pat Dolan

29 April 2015

I was going to write something about the Leamington gig, but while I was thinking on it I heard of Pat’s passing.

Pat was synonymous with the 12 Bar in Denmark St. While we all let our hair down and drank ourselves stupid, Pat kept the place free from trouble, a job he did with the minimum of fuss.

If it turns out there really is a heaven, then I expect to see Pat keeping order outside the pearly gates. And if so, then he probably won’t be able to let me in, but no hard feelings, just respect.

So, if I may paraphrase the man, “Move your arses and raise your glasses” to one of the best.

So long Pat…
