Details about the gig at the bottom of the page
A mash-up of British Blues, Rock’n’roll, Indie, Electro & Punk…
Sixty Second Silence blend influences from sixties psychedelia, blues, punk, new-wave, live electronics, electro and rock’n’roll. Think fat electronic basslines, overdriven saturated guitars, and manic drumming with quintessential English lyrics on songs like ‘Oi, Oi I’m Gordon Brown’, ‘Aldershot Wives’, ‘Birds ‘n’ Booze’, Young Filly’ and ‘Pass me the butter, Dear’.
Their single ‘Shy’ reached No 1 in October in the original unsigned chart hosted by TourDates.
‘Fantastically amazing’ – The Justin Wayne Radio Show – www.TheJustinWayneShow.com
‘They’ve been tipped for the top by the people in the know (That’s us by the way) – Tourdates – Issue 52
Just lately, they sound like The White Stripes and Second Coming-era Stone Roses jamming with New Order. Yup – told you they were good. – PopJunkie TV

Sixty Second Silence
One more band and a fantastic English writer added next week
By George you’re English and you know how to party. Only you don’t tend to do it on your national day. Time to change all that and grab St George’s day back for the people. So forget that dragon slaying fella and let’s celebrate the Georges who made England great – Harrison, Formby, Orwell, Boy, Michael, George from the Famous Five and Osborn (just kidding).
So on Friday April 23rd come on down to the Alternative St George’s Day shindig at The Royal George- 133 Charing Cross Road, WC2H 0EA.
Four bands playing their own tunes and English pop classics
DJs spinning English music all night – Beatles, Blur, Stone Roses, Smiths, Libertines, Kinks
English cheese raffle, English beers, English wine, Bunting, Shove ha’penny and more. We might even get Chatroulette going
It’ll probably rain on the way home too
There will also be a Canadian take-over half way through the night to celebrate one of that country’s most eminent citizens.
It’ll be your last chance to party before you get a Tory government too so make the most of it.
Tickets will be very cheap, but there won’t be many of them. So join the guest list asap and we’ll tell you how to book yours very soon.
NB non English persons very welcome. We are after all very good at crashing your big days so please come to ours.
