Thanks for posting your request. 'Flogging A Dead Horse' is a cracking compilation. However, we don't play any Pistols but we have been known to play some of the great music that inspired them such as The Who, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Dave Berry, The Stooges, Dr Alimantado etc.

We're not actually 'flogging' anything here as it's free for all - even you, Robbo! Razz A band and 2 DJs providing the perfect prerequisite to The Specials at Brixton Academy. A lot of time and effort has gone into ensuring attendees have a great time.

It was cool to meet a few forum members for the first time at the Toots pre-show we did the other week, looking forward to meeting even more of you at this one.

This is all set to be a great pre-show. Lots have people have confirmed their attendance and have commented on how much they enjoyed Boy About Town's previous Brixton pre-shows.

That's what it's all about Liam, gotta enjoy yourselves Very Happy

I've been meaning to ask for a while but nanker keeps jumping on my back like a crazed loon Laughing

Did you do the disco pre brixton specials gig on the saturday 2009?

People dancing n laughing themselves into a frenzy to the sounds of the old timers music while outside the gaffer was on watch, keeping an eye on the pavement full of kids trying to sell all kind of dodgy goods.

Only in London Wink

Boy About Town did all the Brixton pre-shows in 2009, himself. It was the first time I'd been to the Canterbury Arms and it was a great build up to the gig.

I did the Cardiff pre-show and after show in 2009 with Dan.

Post subject: The Specials Aftershow 31st October tickets available! Reply with quote

Hi guys,

My name's Ciaran and I play in a band called Finest Minds (check us out here if you're interested http://www.finestminds.co.uk/ . We are playing at the The Specials official aftershow on the 31st October at the Jamm in Brixton; head here for more information http://www.brixtonjamm.org/event.php?event_id=117.

We are selling tickets at a special (no pun intended) discounted price of £8, which is £2 cheaper then the Jamm site and £12 cheaper then from the door on the night! So if you're interested just email me at ciarancummins@hotmail.co.uk.

Thankyou!

Ciaran

As it's a shameless plug i'll give it a listen.


1st tune: Callous Thoughts: FFS! Are you serious? How dreary is this Shocked
2nd tune: Something Missing! you don't say. Like a rhythm! Get the fuck!
3rd track...Suicidal springs to mind.
4th track: Too Easy: Too easy to switch off never to be heard again.
5th track. Teeth Preen: Torture, like teeth been pulled out with pliers.
6th track. There isn't one, thank fuck for that!

C'mon Cairan, you must be joking. What's this got to do with The Specials? It's not only a million miles apart musically, it's making my ears bleed.

Sorry, I'm not a fan Twisted Evil


Fucked up Minds:

We got DJs and the band 'Covered in Skas' so it should be great!

Get there early.
