Guts For Garters present Anti-Folk Jam

Guts for Garters present an evening of delicious and dulcet Anti-Folk jam with Albino, Archie Shuttlebrace, Hank Osasuna and Paul Hawkins.

Albino: London’s greatest alcoholic garage rock band (probably). They’re a whisky-fuelled misdemeanour in musical form that encapsulate a throwback, vintage rock sound, embellished with thumping rock riffs and sprinklings of americana (plus a good swig of whiskey).

Archie Shuttlebrace: Singer / songwriter Archie performs solo here, but is a member of the Commie Faggots who are an ever changing line up of radical misfits, that have been evolving, devolving and revolving around the London Underground scene since 2008. Whilst their songs can be unashamedly forthright and anything but easy-listening, they aspire to accessibility and a more universal appeal than many bands in genres associated with protest music.

Hank Osasuna is an actor, performance artist and pioneer of punk rock poetry – a mix of a cappella singing, poetry and comedy. He has been heavily involved in promoting and performing on both the American and British antifolk circuits.

Paul Hawkins and Thee Awkward Silences: London’s premier outsider pop mavericks. Paul is a London-based singer-songwriter who has been a key figure in London’s antifolk scene. He regularly records in collaboration with Death in Vegas and Dot Allison guitarist Ian Button (also formerly of the Thrashing Doves) and a 6-piece band under the name of Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences.

The Faux Fibbers – A bit like The Big Fibbers but not as big and more faux. A riot of absurdist blues, space-age pop & psychedelic folk. They write songs about booze, madness, the ghosts of love, aliens, fish and even more booze. One of the most energetic acoustic acts on the circuit.
