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!)

Snuff with Brassick + Crash Mats+ Transit Plan



Saturday 21st August 2021 – with Brassick + ? + Transit Plan


Our last Scary Clown Presents gig before the Covid lockdowns and restrictions were probably our ‘biggest’ headliner wise, as we were so chuffed to be able to bring SNUFF to Stamford.  That feels so long ago now – so so long!

Well, we didn’t want to go too early – but we feel that our first gig since then should be safe to go ahead – as it’s planned for Saturday 21st August.

So we felt it would only be right to start as we ended – by bringing SNUFF back to Mama Liz’s!  Yep Ducan and crew will be coming back to party with us once more – and we thought that would be a one-off chance!  It seems they are a fan of our amazing venue and super friendly crowd.

We could sit back and let Snuff sell it out – but you know us – we have to pack the shows full of juicy goodness, so it’s a stunning line up:

Snuff, Brassick, The Crash Mats
, and Transit Plan (everyone’s mate Steve Pod’s new band).   Unfortunately, Incisions have a band member with Covid, so cannot now travel.  They send their apologies and we will bring them down on another occasion.

Our gigs at Mama Liz’s are safe places – no dickish behavior will be allowed – come and party and have fun.  Teenagers are fine if with an adult.  The old dedicated venue is a deep cellar with stairs down – so, unfortunately, is NOT very accessible, we all wish it was otherwise.  The main building upstairs is a great bar and restaurant (does bar food and has a large beer garden) – so it’s a cracking place to spend time eating and drinking – from real ales to cocktails.

If there are still Gov restrictions in place – it is highly likely that the gig will be canceled and all ticket money will be refunded, no questions asked.

It was another fantastic night – Snuff played for about 70 minutes.   See our gallery of photos from the gig.

The Scary Clown Presents Snuff, The Crippens, Werecats, Haest and FATF

We are very happy to finally bring SNUFF to Mama Lizs!  Duncan Redmonds has tweaked the lineup and returns with a bang!  This is one of a handful of warmup gigs – so something special  


The Crippens return to Mama Lizs after storming Skate Aid 6 with an amazingly weird and wonderful set. Do. Not. Miss!!!

Werecats arrive in Stamford after to drench you in their unbelievable catchy bubblegum flavoured punk. We’ve been trying to get them up to play one of our gigs for years!

Haest deliver south coast punk from members of Matilda’s Scoundrels, the Barracks, Wizard Fight and the Dead Anyways.

A new local band, Fuzz and the Felts make their Scary Clown debut.
