It’s Royal Wedding week. We honestly couldn’t be more excited. We love our bread and circuses in Thee Faction. As you know, we’re having our own little celebration on Friday. It’s at the Buffalo Bar in London. We’re on early – about 9pm – but for once that might not form the high point of the evening, cos after us you’ve got Art Brut masquerading as Fuck Off Piss Off, a UK punk covers band, and then Guided Missile playing punk 7″s til 4am. It’s even got The Washington Post excited (we kid you not). You genuinely don’t want to miss this. Here are all the details.
But we’ve posted about that before. The new news is this: one of our most approved podcasters – Planet Mondo – has put together a superb ‘cast to celebrate this most royal of weeks. Entitled Never Mind the Monarchs, it’s 75 minutes of brilliant music and entertaining chat. Kicking off with a bit of Carry On brilliance, followed by the Bonzos take on Rule Britannia, and straight into (inevitably) the Pistols doing you-know-what, this is essential listening for the week.
And, if you need any further incentive to listen, about 40 minutes in Captain Mondo spins Thee Faction’s ‘366’ and says lovely things about the Guild.
Go and listen now. It’ll get you in the mood.
