It was quite few years ago when we had a phone call that another venue had folded and could we honour a gig that was booked in there, and that gig was a deilghtfully bonkers trio of Lu, Ben and Justin known professionally as Les Triabolliques ( I think it means 3 bollocks but have prefered never to look it up ). So it was rather apt that on the day that the Marshall Rooms closed and Lotte ws franticallt trying to relocate her own booked gigs we had a phone call asking it one of our favourite bands ever could come back.
This will be a spectacular evening – these three are all acclaimed musician, record producers as well as music lovers. Join us on an evening that will take us around the world and put a well deserved smile on our faces.
Ticketshave all gone. Sozzer.

“There were passages that echoed their original, quieter style, but sections of unexpected noise and fury where the improvisations seemed about to topple over; rivermudtwilight now sounded like a demented gospel stomp. For the most part, the bravery paid off, and the impressive finale included an inter-cut of eastern European styles and Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood, desert blues, a Celtic theme and the prison work song Take This Hammer. This is an experiment worth continuing” Guardian
