The Society of Cool!
Getting a little worried about this event? Just heard that Eric Burdon will not be on bill (which was one of the main reasons I was going!) and now informed that David McAlmont (to be fair a good singer) Loick Essien and Carl Barat will be on bill. Loick Essien? Having checked him out on youtube - how is he relevant to RSG? And as for Carl Barat (Libertines) - Eh???
Anne Nightingale compering? - again how is she relevant to RSG - surely there are plenty of artists/celebs around who were relevant to the show and what is supposedly stood for?
I am seriously debating whether to ask for a refund as it seems to be generating into a bloody debacle!
I know Dave Edwards who has his own monthly club night Sidewinder in Islington is djing at this event, apart from that I don't know to much about this gig.
Talking of the Sidewinder club i've booked to go down for the July night (seemingly the venue is the former coffee bar in Quadrophenia) and take in the Purple Hearts and FTJ gig the following night at the Clapham Grand.
