Vinyl Verses Revamped VI: Open Mic feat. Little Hands Clapping »

Simon Yorkshire dons his filthiest hat to present the sixth instalment of this monthly staple… Pop in for a coffee (or beer) and a guaranteed open mic slot — all welcome. We are particularly interested in the weird and the wonderful…and can accommodate any genre from electronica to jazz to folk to pop to noise…and back again. This is a super place to test-drive new material, or to come and play for the first time. Poetry and spoken-word performers are also especially welcome. We have a full PA backline and amps available….so what are you waiting for (other than the event, naturally)?

This month’s extended musical feature act come from a super new London duo called Little Hands Clapping – who we welcome to Vinyl Deptford for the very first time:

There will also be a featured poetry act…but their identity is a secret…for now… As if you have anywhere better to go August over Bank Holiday Weekend than our cavernous Deptford basement…where all the action will be…

Unmissable, unmissable, unmissable… so please don’t miss it…

A Nightmare on Tanners Hill »

Come the 2nd of September, none will be fecund with better splendour… than that which awaits the dweller of Viny’s cellar and their associates… A lineup of live music of tormented sleep… from…

ALEX MONK: Draws on influences from the acid folk movement combined with ambient music, found sound and electronics; his work has been compared to everything from Brian Eno and John Balance to Robert Wyatt and Islaja. Having played alongside the ilk of Damo Suzuki, Will Carruthers, Laetitia Sadier, Rocket Number nine and many others, Alex Monk is currently working on a new solo record and a collaboration with Gavan Kearney/Sand Snowman.

PSYCHICEYECLIX: Audio/Visual/Ciircuitbending/Electronica/noise/glitch/experimental/dnb/dubstep/halucinagenic. A Deptford debut from an acclaimed circuit bender and musician, who will be proffering a special set involving a sitar and hacked Indian electronics.

A NIGHTMARE ON OLD KENT ROAD: A Satanic conflation of the tainted talents of Stephen Elwell (Lofe, Brain of Morbius) and Simon Yorkshire (Yorkshire vs Essex); tales of the latter’s nightmares are set to the former’s dreamlike compositions. They are back in Deptford to purvey bad dreams ahead of the release of their debut album.

May you rest in pieces.
