Our next gig – which is also our first of 2016! – will be 2nd April at The 100 Club, supporting our comrades The Darling Buds, who are celebrating their 30th Anniversary by playing ‘Pop Said’ in full (is this a first?) as well as other classics.
Also on the bill are Brighton C86 band The Popguns.
We can’t wait to be back on the stage. See you down the front.
If you live in either Leeds or London, we are coming to a town near you soon!
Our next show is 7 November at Wharf Chambers, with our staunchies Interrobang.
Can’t get to Leeds? Tell your comrades who can.
Then on 29 November we join a line-up of punk royalty for Attila the Stockbroker’s Londonwick, in New Cross.
Then our final show of the year is Scroogenomics on 19 December at Rich Mix, with a Philosophy Football Christmas spectacular. Get your tickets in early – these shows always sell out.
It’s going to be a celebration of a class resurgent. And an affirmation that a war is going to be waged against austerity. It’s going to be a night of adrenalin and analysis. And it’s going to raise lots of much needed funds for the Corbyn campaign.
So, book your tickets now. £15 a head. We’ve got to pay to hire the Union Chapel. We’re donating every other penny to the Corbyn Campaign. Tell everyone you know. Share the details. Tell everyone in your workplace, your union branch, your Labour Party branch. Let’s raise money, sing songs, and share our visions of a better tomorrow. Cos with enough of us committing to this, there’s a better chance than there has been before that we might realise those visions.
We’re very proud to be taking part in the We Shall Overcome weekend.
All over the UK (and beyond) people are showing solidarity with those at the sharp end of the austerity cuts by putting on a series of live events. Money will be raised for charities, and donations will be given to food banks. But most importantly, we’ll stand shoulder to shoulder and send a message to those who would seek to oppress the most vulnerable in our society that we shall overcome.
On Friday 2nd October we will be playing at Nambucca on Holloway Road, alongside our staunchies Interrobang, and other special guests TBA. It will be a night to remember – register your attendance here.
We’re hugely excited to announce that Comrade Billy Bragg has asked us to take a Saturday night slot on this year’s Leftfield stage at Glastonbury. In his words, “We all need to recharge our activism this year, so come on down and join the debate about the way forward. The fight-back starts here!”
Anyone know where we can buy some leopard print wellies?
We’re honoured to announce that our next gig will be at Burston Strike Rally, Sunday 7 September 2014. The line up for the event includes Owen Jones, and the NASUWT Brass Band.

Thee Faction’s Christmas Song
This new EP will be available at our next London gig. On the 28th November. Buffalo Bar. With Keith TOTP and his Minor UK Indie Celebrity All-Star Backing Band. And also with Abdoujaparov (Fruitbat off of out of Carter USM’s current band). Here’s a taster:
Attila will be joining us on stage. Judy will be there too. Everything else we’re doing in London for the rest of 2013 is already sold-out. So if you want to see us in London, it’s got to be this one. It’s also a chance to pick up a load of Thee Faction records for Xmas presents. So bring money. And wear your best clothes.
See you there.
