Opening proceedings will be the eccentric tones of The Retinal Circus. Expect chaotic tongue-in-cheekiness with a chaotic Zappaesque delivery. Second on are Stourbridge groovers Socio Suki. Then it’s us. We’ve a few new tunes and, as ever, some familiar tunes given an air of improvisation. It’s on at the Bridge Inn WR1 2RX and is free entry!
UPDATE: Whilst advertised free entry, it’s now being suggested a £3 donation be made, as the brewery sponsoring things have dropped out… or something like that.
The gigs and plans for the new year are already being added to the 2014 page along with some dazzling posters. Some loose ends for other adventures can’t be confirmed yet, but when they are these will be included. Keep connected.
Recorded as we improvised: Summer, 2013. Mad images, as ever, by Corky Cordwell, Shropshire. This one really should be viewed in a dark room, with a glass of something heinous, at hand. Headphones and headgear are also strongly advised.
