Hot African night, the Afro Palace join us to promote their gig at the New Empowering Church this Friday featuring Yaaba Funk & Ebo Taylor (visiting from Ghana) and play us some super funky Afro beats for your delectation.


  • Curried Beats: the tasty Lata Mangeshkar comes with Sauce!
  • When an eccentric English gentleman tries out new ideas: The uncategorizeable work of Fred Frith featuring Bill Laswell.
  • Solid gold members only: How Errol Flynn sent a cast of his cock to his lover. Let’s hope for their sake he was well endowed!
  • When Iggy Pop met Tom Waits for “Coffee and Cigarettes”; Make sure you check out the brilliant Jim Jarmusch film.
  • Creating your own scene: How bands like the Happy Mondays took influences like ESG to create their own Madchester scene.
  • We got a hunch you’ll need to brace yourselves. John Brings the noise!
