Sunday 4th May 7-11pm – live – STEVE CRADOCK BAND

014 05Absent Kelly presents : Steve Cradock

Widely regarded as one of the UK’s most talented guitarists, Steve Cradock is a member of Ocean Colour Scene, Paul Weller’s band and a solo artist in his own right.


King of the mod’s legendary guitarist Steve Cradock, will be playing a one off visit to the capital this summer with his full band behind him and a considerable, crowd pleasing, catalogue.


Raised on a teenage diet of The Who, the Small Faces and lashings of Jam, Ocean Colour Scene’s Steve Cradock is seen as one of the most talented British guitarists ever and also noted for his incredible song writing prowess.

Recruited by Paul Weller for his band in 1993, the guitarist’s infectious enthusiasm soon kick-startedOcean Colour Scene back into life, with second album Moseley Shoals spawning four Top Twenty hits including karaoke perennial ‘The Riverboat Song’.


Alternating between Ocean Colour Scene and Wellers band ever since, Steve only got round to making his solo debut, the splendid ‘Kundalini Target’, two years ago and is joining us for the evening with his band behind him to treat us to a selection of his hits from past and present.

Full Line Up: TBA.

Saturday 10th May : Bloc Party DJ set

014 05 10BLOC PARTY (DJ SET)

After a decade of domination, following their huge Earls Court show last year, Bloc Party are now on a break from touring and recording. However they are still performing a handful of rare DJ performances, and what with the band having a habit of being on hiatus for extended periods, this may well be your only chance to see them storming the stage for quite a while.

Absent Kelly:
“We’ve been lucky enough to have been working with them, the winners and nominees of many a music prize since they were voted ‘Best New Artist’ by NME. They attended and performed at one of our legendary, Official After show Parties, following their awards ceremony. Since then, most notably and among other achievements, the band have won the Mercury Music Prize. As well as headlining sell out shows, and festivals the world over they’ve also released five successful studio albums.

Our Bloc Party DJ set shows have always been an integral part of our club night rosta and have continued to grow in size. Even more popular now, with them currently being the only chance to catch Bloc Party out and about and with some of the best emerging acts from around the U.K. sharing the stage with them.”
