24 July FLAWED IS BEAUTIFUL An evening with These Animal Men/S*M*A*S*H

015 07 24 Flawed

Friday 24th July 2015



(then free entry to Whip It! club until 3am)


Flawed Is Beautiful – the film premiere.

Bar open from mid day. Doors 7pm. Film

Screening is at 7.30pm. Advance tickets £5.50 (inclusive of booking fee) from We Got Tickets.




Like all the best music documentaries, Flawed Is Beautiful is about heroic failure.


These Animal Men and S*M*A*S*H didn’t have the right accents or connections. But they had the belief and they looked fantastic.


They took their moment and made the most of it. And they changed people’s lives in small towns out in the provinces, where the big bands didn’t ever come to town and where their songs of aspiration and indulgence (TAM) and smalltown rage (S*M*A*S*H) inspired a whole generation of kids. People always say about the Velvet Underground that everyone who saw them went on to start a band. In the case of These Animal Men and S*M*A*S*H that might actually be true.


015 07 24 TAM The first screenings for the film take place Friday 24th to Sunday 26th July 2015, featuring a stripped-down set from These Animal Men, plus a Q&A with members of both bands and the director, Adam Foley. On 11th September These Animal Men play together for the first time in twenty years, with S*M*A*S*H supporting, at Heaven, Central London.

Friday 31 July : Absent Kelly Introducing

Recommended live music.


Absent Kelly presents STEVE CRADOCK BAND live at AMERSHAM ARMS 15 AUGUST 2015

Displaying OCSalberthall.jpg

Steve Cradock, crosses over the water with his band and steps up for his final London gig this summer at his favourite venue, the Amersham Arms. Headlining this one day event with support
from emerging acts hand picked by promoters, Absent Kelly,and featuring not to be missed Slydigs, tricks from the Magic Mod, and DJs, including a set from none other than London’s biggest alternative stations, XFM Radio.


Widely acknowledged as one of the most influential guitarists of his generation, Steve Cradock made his name as the lead guitarist and songsmith of Britpop bigwigs, Ocean Colour Scene. In addition to OCS’s success, he has toured and recorded with the Modfather himself, Paul Weller, for over two decades. You would have thought all this would be enough for one man, but on top of it all, Steve has also found the time to forge a solo career.


Don’t miss your last chance of the summer to see emerging artists influenced by Cradock’s music, as well as Steve himself, shining in his own limelight, backed by his band.

Full line up to be announced. Music Bar Until Late; £16 OTD / £13 ADV
