We are very proud to feature a track on the new Senseless Things Tribute album “Punk, Not Fraggle”.
The album features 15 tracks by 15 bands all covering songs by 90s indie punk pop kids The Senseless Things and is a fundraiser for The Teenage Cancer Trust. We’ve heard it and it’s a corker – every track is a belter (working from great source material of course!)
Our contribution is this version of “Fishing at Tescos”.
The album is only £5 and available here – buy it!
We’re very excited and proud to be taking part in this anti-austerity awareness and fundraiser “at The King Arthur in Glastonbury. “We shall Overcome” is an all-dayer for a great cause and with a stellar line up of local talent
We’re busy making plans for our diaries next year and lining up lots of live dates as well as preparing new material. You’ll hear more about this all soon. But one thing you need to know about sooner is this: Glastonbury Calling.
Taking place on Saturday 27th February the event will see 30 bands taking over 4 venues across Glastonbury town. £10 will get you a wristband that will get in across all the venues all day. As you can see, there are loads of great bands playing, including our dear friends Missy Edwards and John D Revelators. £10 to see so much great music is an absolute bargain.
After a run of gigs throughout Somerset Team Gklastonbury’s Oxjam 2015 has come to an end. We took part in 3 events – The King Arthur and later Bocabar in Glastonbury with The White Hart in Taunton inbetween. There were other nights throughout the month with countless other bands and artists taking part all overseen by the marvellous Missy Edwards, who also performed a series of awesome shows.
After totaling it all up we can now reveal that a brilliant £1020.43 was raised for Oxfam – not bad at all. Well done to everyone involved! sSsx
Next up on The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake’s calendar is the first leg of OxJam at the King Arthur Inn, Glastonbury on Friday October 2nd.
Grim pictures in the news recently remind us all what an important role charities like Oxfam play in the world so we are really pleased to be able to do our bit. And we always love playing down at the Arfer so what could be better?
I’ll tell you what – it ain’t just us but a stack of other acts from across the musical spectrum: Missy Edwards, Henry Wacey, Entangled Band, Duncan Batey and UK:ID. There’s got to be something there to take your fancy!
And they’ve got proper cider in the King Arthur too.
To promote the gig, we’ll be appearing on Glastonbury FM the night before to play a few songs. So tune in to 107.1 FM (or listen online) Thursday evening and hear how that goes.
Hope to see you on Friday for a proper good night out!
We had lots of fun taking part in Oxjam this year, shaking our snakes in both The Bell Inn and Belushis in Bath as well as at the Bocabar in Glastonbury. Hats off to the organisers, performers and everyone else involved in raising a shed load of money for a great cause. Glastonbury & Street’s event raised over £1600 and Bath’s grand total is over £3000!
An added bonus was getting these rockin’ photos from the event photographers!
Thank you to everyone who came, took part and helped make possible the first Low Ham Wassail – tickets sold out and an amazing £820 was raised for the Somerset and Dorset Air Ambulance. We’ll try and get some pix up here but it was a bit tricky in the dark and wet. People made good in the bad weather, drunk cider and danced til the wee hours. Much fun. I’m sure the cider Gods were appeased and we can expect a bountiful crop of apples ahead. Same again next year folks?
