Listen to this highly topical song recorded in 1970. Picture if you will, members of the present ruling govermental Coalition, as you do so.

Out Demons Out. Indeed.

IT WILL BE STAGED AS ANOTHER FUNDRAISER FOR THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST WELFARE BENEFITS CUTS.

ADMISSION WILL BE – £5 / £2 CONCESSIONS

THE ARTISTS FEATURED WILL BE –

THE LEGENDARY – EDGAR BROUGHTON – Original ‘Alternative Culture’ legend – We are especially pleased that EDGAR has offered to do a gig in support of our cause- a real ‘cultural hero’ – still true to the firm – this marks a rare London appearance – a real treat and a ‘must see’ – don’t miss out on this.

PARADISE 9 – Psychedelic ‘space cadet’s’ fresh from a mission to the outer edge of the galaxy to bring you back to earth with their incisive ‘real politic’ lyrics-

THE STRANGE AGENCY – featuring former SE London ‘face’ the aptly named Mr Craig High – a MAD PRIDE and BONKERSFEST veteran – this razor sharp twin guitar psychedelic punk attack is the perfect foil for Mr High’s in your face polemics – to quote the man ‘don’t let the bastards grind you down – had been due to play at the ‘Feast of Fools’ event in April – but venue management f**k ups left us cut short of agreed time and they and eager punters were (as well as us) were disappointed – now back with a vengance-

COME EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT – WE ARE ANTICIPATING THE PLACE WILL BE RAMMED – WE HAVE A FULL BILL AND THE ENTERTAINMENT WILL KICK OFF FROM AROUND 8.30 PM –

ALSO FEATURING ARE

DAVID STUDDERT – a gritty but sensitive singer song writer – originally from Oz and something of a ‘world citizen’ – ‘one of the best singer songwriters around’ steeped in the bohemian tradition – also known for running his own ‘Backfire Cool’ events.

‘SURVIVOR’S POETRY’ FOUNDER – ‘THE POET LAUREATE OF HACKNEY’ – LONG TIME MAD PRIDE SUPPORTER – A LEGEND – FRANK BANGAY. Frank specifically requested to do a spot as he is a big fan of EDGAR BROUGHTON and we were happy to oblige as we are always keen to feature his sensitive and evocative poetry.

Our regular MC will be the unequivical JASON WHY (we continue to ask ourselves) – who has promised to sneak in a couple of unplanned ‘open mic’ performers –

our regular VJ the FLICKERING LIGHT will be providing original and stunning animations to add to the overall effect –

BE WARNED – EXPOSURE TO THIS KIND OF STUFF CAN SERIOUSLY DAMAGE YOUR NORMALITY –

buses 36/ 171/ 177 / 436 stop right near the Venue – located nearby to NEW X FIRE STATION –

QUEENS RD PECKHAM BR Station is nearby (trains from London Bridge) – it is a short walk from NEW X GATE BR(East London Line) and NEW X BUS GARAGE.

BE GOOD TO SEE YOU THERE TO ENJOY A GREAT NIGHT OUT IN SUPPORT OF AN IMPORTANT CAUSE (FOR A VALUE FOR MONEY PRICE)
