40) Kibosh Kabarett, The Park Hotel, Lancaster, 9th july 2016ce

As previously noted, we love Kibosh Kabarett as a scrappy, anarchic expression of community. However, last time we played, back in april, we were able to avoid any consequences of its scrappy anarchy by virtue of being on first, getting there early & managing to get a sound check in. This time we weren't so lucky.

upcoming gig, this saturday 9th july 2016ce

We're delighted, if somewhat tardy, to announce that we'll be playing at Lancaster's Park Hotel this saturday. It's another event organised by Kibosh Kabarett, at rather short notice... the last one we played was a great night, full of fantastic acts & general big-heartedness.

The Facebook event page is here.

Tony, Bucking Flair - the video

In light of the arrival of the Chilcott report... we did this around 2006 or so. Our friend Sam Lamont did the animation.

Brexit/Monopoly Metaphor Alert

Not that I often make blog posts. But if you're going to write about anything at all, then an event as big as this surely deserves attention.

Permit me a metaphor.

Imagine, if you will, that Free Market Capitalism, the system we use to run the world, is an enormous game of Monopoly.

39) Kibosh Kabarett, The Park Hotel, Lancaster, 30th april 2016ce

We may have failed to promote this event very assiduously (posted on Facebook, but not on the site), but it ended up being very well attended. This was the second Kibosh Kabarett, an event which bills itself as "art, satire, dissent", thereby suiting us down to the ground. As we were the first act on, & only doing three songs, we were fairly convinced that we'd be playing to two anarchists & a dog - but by the time we started playing the room had filled with perhaps fifty souls (none of whom were dogs, better luck next time).

Storm Desmond/Site outage/Still here

One of the disadvantages to self-hosting your server is that, in the event of a natural disaster, everything stops. This last weekend, the Northwest of England was his by Storm Desmond, which dumped an apparently-record-breaking amount of water on us all (bear in mind that we're no strangers to large amounts of water).
