Just £15 per person.

Strictly Over 18 ONLY

'The Men That Will Not Be Blamed for Nothing'
Putting the ‘punk’ into steampunk since 1888… Old school punk rock. Like, REALLY old school.

Genuine 100% actual Londoners, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed for Nothing come from a past which probably never happened via a present they didn’t want.

Less steampunk and more “SteamPUNK”, the British four-piece mix Anarchy and Anachrony in equal measure. Expect a robot Sid Vicious covering Slayer in an 1877 East End Music Hall: a murky mix of Doctor Who, Doctor Watson and Doctored History. Not for the faint hearted or those of a delicate disposition.

'Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers'
On which side does a camel part it’s hair? When is Austria? Does cheese affect my credit rating? All these questions can be answered by Biscuithead and the Biscuit Badgers.

From time immemorial these four musicians have stood at the gateway of nonsense begging for peanuts. Spending most of their time trapped in force fields and vortices, occasionally they’re released to stalk the streets of Leeds. Then you might hear the plaintive cry of Sam’s tuba, the mournful crow of Dean’s ukulele, the excited jazzy croaking of Bob’s piano or the purr of Matty’s drums.

This band is riotously odd; jolly and engaging but peculiar too. There’s a calypso about land hermit crabs, a celebration of David Attenborough, a lament at the passing of dinosaurs.
