Following the success of the Old St Pancras Sessions, sLessIsMore Music proudly present their second night, 'Upstairs in Our Black Heart'. Please join us for our first night on Friday 20th July, featuring a great lineup inc. Minor Sounds and Young Jude.. Tickets: £5 Doors: 7:45pm The Lineup: KINKY RUB: "Kinky Rub are a 3 piece psychedelic rock outfit that create a dark and sordid vision of life that is undercut with comedy. Tales of hedonistic life in modern London are set against a backdrop of driving bass lines, blues riffs, psychedelic reveries and dissonant guitars. Hailing from North London Kinky Rub are made up of Gary Rolfe on vocals and guitar, Patrick Balfe on drums and Jared Fisher on bass and harmonica http://www.facebook.com/Kinky.Rub LONE TAXIDERMIST: The Lone Taxidermist plays with the gothic and enchanting to create a disturbed beauty that exists in the darkest spaces of our minds, with saws, organs, bells, broken strings, old blues howling and an exquisite voice that could raise the dead. http://www.facebook.com/lonetaxidermist YOUNG JUDE: 'Young Jude' is the brainchild of Joseph Watkin, a young singer-songwriter from London who first attracted industry attention with the release of 'Mrs Violet' - a low budget music video that was nominated for a Soho Short Award. His early music also made an impression on Lionsgate Films who used his songs 'Losing Grace', 'A New Shade' and 'Warning Signs' on their latest release. http://www.youtube.com/user/josephwatkinmusic?feature=results_main MALACHY OROZCO: http://soundcloud.com/malachyorozco http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0GxFoIKeMc&feature=related MINOR SOUNDS: Minor Sounds are perfectly suited to the road movie you've only dreamed of living. Their new album comes from Brighton based singer/songwriter Mirna Stanich and Warsaw based producer Martin Zietek. It was recorded in a few living rooms in Brighton and Martin’s home studio in a village near Warsaw, bouncing tracks back and forth between them. The recording were made between 2009 and 2012. They have drawn influences from their diverse experiences including roots in Croatia and Poland, and living in the States and the UK.

Those of you who are old enough may well have participated or attended the club, which opened thirty years ago this year, in its original venue in Soho. If you were a regular, you may have seen Depeche Mode, Soft Cell, Keith Allen, The Pogues, Paul Morley, Richard Jobson and Richard Wilson perform their earliest shows there, or you may remember The Event Group transforming the space each week, and showing some of the best Performance Art to ever grace a London venue. Certainly everyone who came has a favourite moment or moments. Robert Fraser, Malcolm McLaren, Francesca Thyssen, Brian Clarke, Derek Jarman and Vic Reeves were all regulars. So were Grayson Perry and The Neo-Naturists. Oh, and Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf. And Howard Devoto and Siouxsie Sioux. One night, the top New York nightclub, Danceteria, came over and did a night with us, showcasing bands, comedians and performance artists from Manhattan, Brooklyn and The Bronx. Another night we hosted Michael Horowitz’s Poetry Olympics. It was that sort of place. We only had one rule. DO NOT BE BORING. The academic and novelist Lisa Appignanesi wrote: 'Of all the Cabarets to spring up in Britain over recent years, it is Soho's Cabaret Futura, the brain-child of Richard Strange, which bears most atmospheric resemblance to its Weimar kin. Cabaret Futura became the focus and meeting place for the energy which fed the explosion in fashion, photography, filmmaking and music. More than that, it suggested a reaction to television, the growing demand for a live venue to serve specific, not standardised tastes.' If the homogenous, sterile world of TV that Ms. Appignanesi describes sounds familiar, perhaps you would like to join us. It is my intention to programme music, lectures, interviews, performances and short films. Perhaps the occasional debate or a presentation. Perhaps a total transformation of the space. The rule remains the same. DO NOT BE BORING. Cabaret Futura will take place once a month, on the third Monday, at the gastro pub Paradise by Way of Kensal Green, 19 Kilburn Lane, Kensal Green, London W10 4AE. We have a lovely room, a superb kitchen and a lot of great ideas planned for the coming year. It will be a local club, of limited capacity, so membership will be required. A drop-in, come to network, chat, relax, have a drink and catch some extraordinary live performances, or a lively discussion. It will be a club for grown-ups, people who like a bit of meat. What do you think? Let me know. RICHARD STRANGE email@example.com
