A Fundraiser for the Campaign Against Welfare Benefit Cuts
THE INNER TERRESTRIALS / EDGAR BROUGHTON / THE OLYMPIC CLAMP DOWN / SON OF PSYCHOYOGI / PAUL BIRTILL
The mental health right’s campaigning organisation MAD PRIDE is bringing the next in it’s series of Fundraising events to support campaigns raising concern about the implications of the current government welfare benefits ‘reforms’, which in real terms will mean cuts to benefits for sick and disabled people, including those with mental health difficulties, to a new venue in Tottenham, following from a series of events in venues around south London in the last year.
Artists appearing are THE INNER TERRESTRIALS a stomping mix of dub, punk, ska, folk and general anarchic danceability that has gotten audiences over the world going crazy, from Bristol to Berlin, Warsaw, Tokyo and beyond.
We are pleased to invite back a ‘legendary’ artist of cult status in the shape of original 60′s / 70′s ‘agit prop’ rocker EDGAR BROUGHTON who featured strongly at the recent ‘Celebration of Creative Lunacy’ event for World Mental Health Week at the Montague Arms in New Cross in south London last October.
Another cult ‘legend’ that will also make an appearance on the night is the band fronted by original Deptford Fun City punk band ‘Alternative TV’ co founder Tyrone Thomas. ‘Alternative TV’ performed at early MAD PRIDE events and Tyrone has been a long standing active MAD PRIDE supporter.
Singer songwriter Chris Ramsing, the frontman of the PSYCHO YOGI band who featured on last years ‘Holocaust Day’ memorial event has also been invited to make a solo appearance in his guise as the SON OF PSYCHO YOGI
MAD PRIDE are at the frontline of putting the politics back into music, sustaining the Alternative Cultural vibe and evoking the spirit of the old days of Rock Against Racism and the like.
We have also invited the well respected Liverpudlian published poet PAUL BIRTILL to perform some of his pieces.
Stunning visuals will be provided by our ‘regular’ VJ, visual artist Dave Eyre aka the FLICKERING LIGHT who’s original projections and animations have been much in demand at various gigs and venues around London and beyond for a number of years and who adds another dimension to the evening.
Our regular MC – the irreplaceable Mr JASON WHY a well known figure around the ‘open mic’ scene in London will be whipping up proceedings with his infectious enthusiasm and spontaneous poetics.
All in all it promises to be another night of original and quality acts that MAD PRIDE have established a strong reputation for. Do yourself a favour and come and enjoy the treats on offer – all at bargain prices, in line with our policy of keeping admission prices low and accessible to those on low incomes and benefits -and in the process give support to a vital and otherwise marginalised cause. The venue has full disabled access and a reasonably priced bar. It is located nearby to Seven Sisters tube station and Tottenham Hale BR and is served by a number of local bus routes. There is also free parking space available at the venue.
