Hastings grease-rock power trio THE ADMIRAL SIR CLOUDSLEY SHOVELL are coming back to London – and unlike a lot of cabbies they don’t mind going south of the river!
Hot on the heels of the release of their acclaimed third album ‘Keep it Greasy’, The Admiral are bringing their fuzz, riffs and pints of Watney’s Red Barrel to the AMERSHAM ARMS in NEW CROSS.
Expect head-shaking rhythms, riffs that’ll bury their way deep into your brain and the sort of genuine curly-lead, valve-amp, heads-down rock ‘n’ roll you’ve only read about in books! Support comes from SPIRIT OF THE AGE, who’ll be doing a full set of Hawkwind and Robert Calvert classics to get you into the right frame of mind, and RITES OF HADDA a new and emerging band whose sound has been described as ‘anarcho-pagan-gothic-stoner-punk’.
Doors are 7pm, and tickets are a mere £6 if you buy them ahead of time (£8 on the door).
Your nearest stations are NEW CROSS & NEW CROSS GATE. What else are you going to do with your Sunday evening? Watch The Antiques Roadshow? Forget that! Come on out and get ready to bang your head until your neck muscles beg for mercy.
