Saturday 14th October 2017 – Clockwork Extravaganza
7:30pm to Midnight at The Carleton, 56 Marine Road West, Morecambe, LA4 4EU
The gates of Whittingham Asylum have been struck open and for the first time in history the high security Ward XVI invites members of the public to meet face to face with the UK’s most violent serial killers. The ward’s longest-standing resident Psychoberrie, listed as the UK’S most dangerous criminal, will give an insight into her life prior to her incarceration. With assistance from medical staff Alex and Dr Stott and fellow inmate Jake she will tell the story of the reckless life led by herself and former partner Beardy McStumble and the narcotic induced murders that took place prior to his own decapitation. This is a sordid tale of deceit and manipulation represented with a genre defying mix of hard-hitting metal riffs, off-beat ska rhythms, melancholic piano, accordion, catchy female vocals, a hint of electro, and to top it all off an engaging, energetic theatrical live show.
Captain of the Lost Waves
A music box of tales, unsolved mysteries, and hidden gems via the Captain’s journey through time.
The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing
Old school punk rock. Like, REALLY old school.
Genuine 100% actual Londoners, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing come from a past which probably never happened via a present they didn’t want. Less steampunk and more “SteamPUNK”, the British four piece mix Anarchy and Anachrony in equal measure. Expect a robot Sid Vicious covering Slayer in an 1877 East End Music Hall: a murky mix of Doctor Who, Doctor Watson and Doctored History. Not for the faint hearted or those of a delicate disposition.
The Men are, Andrew O’Neill (vocals, radical politics, inappropriate swearing), Gerhard ‘Andy’ Heintz (vocals, saw), MaЯc BuЯЯows (guitar, vocals), and Jez Miller (drums).
