Triple bill of former Vindaloo records label mates.

Nightingales formed in 1979, based around lyricist/singer Robert Lloyd. They enjoyed cult status in the early ’80’s as darlings of the credible music scene and were championed by John Peel, who said of them – “Their performances will serve to confirm their excellence when we are far enough distanced from the 1980’s to look at the period rationally and other, infinitely better known, bands stand revealed as charlatans”.

In the late Eighties they stopped working but, following the occasional gig between times, they re-grouped in 2004.
After fucking about with various part timers, starry eyed wastrels, precious sorts and mercenaries the group arrived at its current line-up, which features Lloyd, Andreas Schmid from Faust on bass, ex Violet Violet drummer Fliss Kitson and on guitar James Smith, who Lloyd had spotted playing with Damo Suzuki.

Comedy legend Ted Chippington will be performing 2 sets, maybe more, maybe less, it’s difficult to tell for sure.

Stewart Lee has often cited Chippington as the reason he began stand-up comedy, describing Chippington's act as «a mixture of surrealism and insolent provocation and uncompromising boredom».

Another admirer, Richard Herring, talks of Chippington's «contempt for the very idea of jokes». For his part Chippington — who describes his own act as being influenced by Lenny Bruce and Owd Grandad Piggott — says he is an «anti-comedian» and that he only started doing his act «to annoy people». He has even claimed that his main reason for retiring from the stage in the 1990s was that he was becoming too popular.

Fortunately he’s back out of retirement for this gig

A classic line up not to be missed.
