The Charlatans’ Tim Burgess will be making a far too rare DJ stop-off in London on Saturday 4th June.


The term “multi-faceted” is a bit derogatory when talking about Tim Burgess, as even diamonds don’t have have as many “facets” as Tim…


Firstly let us do the obvious; Tim is Lead Singer of THE CHARLATANS. Twelve albums in and still making incredible records, headlining festivals around the world and getting an insane amount of coverage in the media.


The band has influenced numerous generations of musicians and should have the subtitle “Godfathers of UK Indie” or “UK music royalty” but that would not be very Charlatans, would it?


Away from the band, Tim has worked with the Chemical Brothers on the “Exit Planet Dust” and “Push The Button” albums, featured in Freebass – the supergroup of Mani & Peter Hook, and even recorded with Joaquin Phoenix. He has written and released two books (including the forthcoming Tim Book Two), programmed festival arenas under his Tim Peaks event, designed a breakfast cereal with Kellogg’s and has one of the most irreverent and entertaining social media accounts in the twitterverse.


As A DJ, Tim was resident at the infamous and zeitgeist changing Heavenly Social, which helped launch the careers of both the Chemical Brothers and Norman Cook’s Fatboy Slim alias.


Tim has DJ’d at some of the globe’s best clubs and venues.  He is a proper DJ, no pre-prepared sets, no pre-prepared mixes, just a man with a huge record collection at the centre of the room and at the centre of the dance floor.


Come join the Indie wonderland and leave tellin’ stories.

Fri 24th June 2016 Absent Kelly Introducing: RUMBLE FISH

Full Line Up: Rumble Fish, Wolfkang, Useless Cities, Grace Kim, Peeping Drexels

Amersham Arms 24.6.16 (3)

Who needs Glastonbury when Absent Kelly are bringing you some of the best alt indie around, all to the stage of the artsy Amersham Arms which, with it’s new outside bar, is even better than a muddy field!


Topping the bill is Rumble Fish. This London based quartet are relatively new to the scene but already, their brand of Indie/Pop/Rock is getting them noticed. They’ve already impressed crowds at well renowned venues like the Camden Barfly and have bagged themselves a slot at this year’s Camden Rocks festival alongside big names like The Cribs and Billy Bragg.


Joining them is Useless Cities, a newly formed indie/alternative rock back who draw influences from Arcade Fire and The National, so you can expect dark, bittersweet melodies and feelings all pinned together effortlessly by the flowing guitar sound.


Wolfkang will be there too. Wolfkang are a local, South East London four piece that are no strangers to the stage and have achieved chart success with their brand of alternative blues-rock. The band are now recording their next offering and we’re very excited to hear it.


Grace Kim will also be coming along, with her band. Originally from South Korea, the singer-songwriter now resides in Liverpool fuses her love of jazz, classical and modern rock to create a fresh unique sound.


Opening the show is The Peeping Drexels. If you’re one for new music then these guys are for you! This fledgling South-East London four piece will bring their fresh, laid-back, new wave rock to the stage.
