The Scary Clown Presents… Guns N’ Wankers Are Back!

guns n wankers gig stamford 10 may 19

On an excited scale of 1 to 100, we have reached 101 as we are only the 2nd ever gig for the Duncan Redmonds reformed 90’s punk band, Guns n Wankers!!   Yep they are back and playing gigs, and we have them coming to Mama LIz’s Voodoo Lounge on 10th May.  They are joined by one hell of a line-up;  Spoilers, Misfortune Cookie, and Beverley Kills.

The gig has already sold over 70% of the ticket allocation within a few days – so if you want to come along for a bit of DIY punk history, get your tickets ASAP!  They are £10 and we will not be selling any on the door, this is a ticket only event as we know it will SELL OUT!

Guns n Wankers were formed by Duncan Redmonds when Snuff first split up, combining members of Snuff and The Wildhearts.  The current 3 piece line-up includes original members Duncan Redmonds and Pat Walters, with Wes Wasley (Consumed) on bass.

The Scary Clown Presents Helps Mama Liz’s Celebrate 10 Years!

capitalist kids oct 27

We’ve been putting on gigs for quite a few years now – but our main venue, Mama Liz’s Voodoo Lounge, has been around even longer.  This October it celebrates its 10th year putting on shows, and we are very proud to be able to put on the official gig to celebrate that fact.

The only thing which would really celebrate this birthday would be one of our huge 1/2 dayers, so we’ve booked seven cracking bands to join us – including a band all the way from the USA – The Capitalist Kids!   They are touring the UK with Aerial Salad, who played one of their earliest gigs with us under the wing of Alex Wonk.  We are lucky to be able to bring both bands along to Stamford, to join the rest of the amazing line-up!

We start the day at 2pm, with one of our famous ‘chill sessions’ for the first three hours – just come along and have a beer or cocktail, and why not try some of the amazing Vegan street food from our friends Resist! Vegan Kitchen?   Come 5.15pm we should all be nicely relaxed and ready for SEVEN DIY PUNK BANDS, who will be rocking down in the Voodoo Lounge until late.   Children are allowed if with an adult, so feel free to bring along those budding punks!

Tickets are £12 advance, and will be £15 on the door, so save £3 per ticket if you order from our ticket shop before the event!

 

THE CAPITALIST KIDS – Tight punk power pop from Austin Texas LP available on Brassneck Records.

MATILDAS SCOUNDRELS – a folk party punk band from Hastings which you seem to see on hundreds of gig fliers! About time we brought em up to get dancing – one of the best bands on the DIY scene.

PIZZA TRAMP – omg the boys from Wales are coming back – and we know you love these three silly chaps. Come and see them smash the place up, get drunk, and probably blow your minds.

AERIAL SALAD – Welcome and overdue return for the Manchester trio who have been touring like loonies since their last visit!!!

BRASSICK – Hi Energy Punk hardcore with rocking licks from the West Midlands making their Stamford debut!

JOHNNY UTAH – Paying tribute to a time were music was valid, urgent, fun, and vital. Johnny Utah provide you with punk rock anthems of the 80’s and early 90’s

S.H.I.T. – brutal 4 chord punk rock reminiscent of Mower era Chaos UK

Wonk Unit & Raging Nathans added to our April 2018 BBQ Gig!

Wonk Unit april bbq 2018

YES!  We are dead chuffed to be able to announce that our amazing friends WONK UNIT will return once again to Mama Liz’s Voodoo Lounge in Stamford, this time as part of their dual headline show with the USA band RAGING NATHANS!

It’s rare one of our gigs features a touring band from the states, so make sure you get tickets for this one, as our Wonk Unit gigs nearly always sell out, and our all dayers with vegan BBQ are legendary 🙂   We plan to have a bit of a flea market too, so if you’re someone arty or who has hand-made stuff to sell, get in touch with us!  We plan to support the local exotic pet refuge, and they may well be bringing OWLS with em!

The line-up is completed with five other great bands, some old friends a couple of bands new to Scary Clown Presents… events.

More details here – and £13.50 advance tickets are already available for one of the most fun DIY Punk gigs of 2018!

Thanks for a PunkTastic 2017!

Punk xmas 2017 gig poster

Our small gang of reprobates at The Scary Clown Presents… would like to thank every single band, and every one of you who came along to our gigs in 2017.  After initially believing we would be winding down… we actually probably put on more shows than ever, extending ourselves from our lovely base at Mama Liz’s Voodoo Lounge to put smaller acoustic shows on at the Ostrich Inn in Peterborough town centre.  This year has also seen us invest some of our hard earned dosh in a back-line – adding a brand new Marshall guitar amp, a big chunky bass amp, and a set of drum shells (and now high-hat and cymbal stands!).  This allows the visiting bands to come ‘light’ – and hopefully encourage more bands to come along.

We have lots planned for 2018 – a gig in March is already organised (tickets going up soon), our April BBQ and Gig is pretty much fully booked up with bands – and there’s going to be an exciting announcement about the dual headliners of that!  We also have our Skate-Aid 5 all dayer in the planning stage, with bands being approached for that line-up.

We’ve just got our DIY Punk XMAS PARTY gig to come, on 9th December…

Venue:  Mama Liz’s Voodoo Lounge,
Tix:  £7 advance, or pay £8.50 on the night.
Date:  Saturday 9th December 2017

The Castle Builder – Edinburgh Fringe Smash hits Peterborough Town

Being old punks, we’re all about supporting local events, especially anything less mainstream and different.

There’s a show coming to our hometown of Peterborough on the 10th November 2017, which impressed at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, and a friend of ours is helping to promote it so why wouldn’t we give it a mention here?  It’s  a cross between a TED talk and a Rock show apparently.  It celebrates the DIY ethic – which is what we’re all about.

THE CASTLE BUILDER

10th Nov 2017.  The Undercroft, Serpentine Green, PE7 8BE Peterborough

Kid Carpet and Vic Llewellyn take you on a musical, magical, moving & comic journey through the minds of some of our planet’s most eccentric and creative individuals. A smash-hit success at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe.

The show spirals outwards from personal accounts into tales of outsider artists who’ve been inspired to build gigantic extraordinary structures, alone, in secret, and without artistic approval from the real world.

“It holds its audience, tenderly, in the palm of its hand, lifts us to the stars, then places us gently back down on earth, with a reminder that there’s always time to live better.”
– Exeunt (Maddy Costa):

Feminist DIY Punk Coming in September

chicks with bricks

We’ve often thought that our gigs should represent all – which means we knew we needed to find the best and most exciting bands out there who show what real girl power is!

And lo, we’ve made it happen!   Our Borderlands Brawlers benefit gig on the 3rd September now has a complete line-up, and it’s one of our most exciting and varied yet!

Beverley Kills + Perkie + Hello Mabel + Lilith Ai

@ Mama Liz’s Voodoo Lounge.  Doors 8pm.  First band 8.45.  Tickets £6 adv, £7 on the door.  Tickets here.

The Bev’s have been friends of ours for ages, and we’re chuffed to have them back!
Perkie has a full compliment of Perkettes, and we just know you’ll love Hello Mabel, with our mate Cait from Roughneck Riot bringing a different brand of mayhem with her.

Lilith Ai is something quite different – she’s going to be MASSIVE in our humble opinions.  A signer and songwriter and artist who already is beginning to ‘break through’.  Check our some of her tunes; https://soundcloud.com/lilithai

Tickets here.
