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.

Headline Maniac is the new band formed by members of Eddie and the Hotrods. The band released their self titled album in summer of 2016 to widespread acclaim from the music press. Many rock radio stations made it their album of the week. Festival appearances in both the UK and Europe followed in 2017 and a release of the bands first live album.
Some would say that these boys have already been there and done it having toured the world playing some of the biggest festivals and arenas with Eddie and the Hotrods, but Headline Maniac are new, bold and brash, if you like your rock music with a injection of punk attitude then check them out.

Proudly presented by The Fighting Cocks Bar & Live Music Venue and Bangers Embrace Presents
No strangers to the dingy, damp and dark back room of the Fighting Cocks, the Skinny Milk double come to deliver another blast of psychedelic, fuzzed up freak out garage rock!

And we welcome first timers GLOO to Kingston. Bratty Britrock from the southern coast. These guys are not to be missed… take our word for it. You’ve been warned.
