BRDCST 2018 is a 5 day indoor festival in Brussels packed with interviews, concerts and films. Saturday the 7th April was curated by the Sleaford Mods and we were well chuffed to be asked to play. As you can imagine there was a great line up and we absolutely loved it.
Big thanks to the Sleaford Mods & Steve Underwood for asking us, thank you AB team for looking after us and everyone that came to see us.
The links below will give you a flavour of the day or will bring back some great memories.

Steve Ignorant’s Slice Of Life will be playing at Colchester Arts Centre on Thursday 5th April, The Prince Albert in Brighton on Friday 6th April and supporting the Sleaford Mods at AB Brussels on Saturday 7th April.
I was asked to provide a clip of one of our performances. As I obviously can’t film myself I rely on you to do the photos/clips and I am always impressed by the quality of it all. Thank you so much for sharing them.
Here 3 clips from Mark Brown that I found. Thanks Mark, I really appreciate it.
Really enjoyed my chat with John Gentile.
We’re itching to be back on the road again. Less than 3 weeks to go and starting at one of our favourite venues -Colchester Arts Centre in Colchester (Thu 5th April), followed by The Prince Albert in Brighton (Fri 6th April) and we’ll then hop on the ferry to join the Sleaford Mods in Brussel for the AB Spring fest.
If you want a pre-taste than grab yourself the EP Just Another, released by Harbinger Sound from the webshop or get a download.
In December I did an interview with Matthew Hudson from ITV Anglia at the Birdcage. He has created two punk features which will be running on ITV Anglia coming Tuesday and Wednesday (9th & 10th January) at 6pm. I haven’t seen it myself but apparently I’ll appear in the first feature.
Looking forward to see both of them.
I did play with Crass in Norwich but can’t remember the venue, in 2015 I played with Slice Of Life at The Owl Sanctuary and in 2016 we played at the Birdcage. It’s a vibrant city and worth checking out the market with some fantastic vegan and veggie food stalls.
