Snuff in Stamford; A Celebration of the Life of Ben Ramone Thompson



Jan 20th 2024.  A Celebration of the Life of Ben Ramone Thompson with a lineup of acts that he loved xxx
With an acoustic Snuff headline (full band), Misfortune Cookie, Mark Murphy, & A Great Notion.

Ben came to many of our gigs, and we have some classic pictures and memories of him at those shows.  He also was hugely into his music (and it in vinyl form), and we know had many friends across the UK in bands who he often would chat with.

“On a recent visit to see Emma, she mentioned that Holly (Ben’s Daughter) thought it would be cool to put on a gig in Ben’s name. How can you refuse? So we have a lineup of some of Ben’s fave UK acts to be announced very soon. The idea is to have a party as this would have been 2 days before Ben’s next birthday, and celebrate with great music and fun tales of Ben.”

Doors 7.30pm,   Music ends 10.30pm, bar upstairs open till the early hours.TICKETS ON THE DOOR ONLY NOW – 10 LEFT 


SNUFF (full band intimate acoustic) – legends of the UK DIY Scene on Fat Wreck Chords – back for the 3rd? SCP gig – it is full band, but they are releasing a new ‘acoustic’ album, so are stripping back their songs to play in a more intimate way.  Mama Liz’s is pretty intimate so a great venue to experience this.
MISFORTUNE COOKIE – a band beloved of Ben, and the Scary Clown posse.
MARK MURPHY – No Marks / Crocodile God – and a good friend of Ben’s
A GREAT NOTION – Ben’s favourite local band (sorry the rest of you!)

Spoilers Blow the Ostrich Away

spoilers gig ostrich

Our friends the SPOILERS are bringing their new album and plenty of catchy punk tunes on the road, and we will capture them and make them play at the Ostrich Inn, Peterborough, on Saturday, 17th November.

Also bringing the banging tunes are pboro’s finest, THE DEADITES, plus a band who played their first gig at our all dayer recently, the already bloody good SPRAINER.

It’s not a party without MARK MURPHY – a real Scary Clown veteran – his bands the No Marks and Crocodile God have rocked our gigs many times previously.
