IN THE WORDS OF DESPERATE LEMMY CAUTION HIMSELF:
"Black Time are retiring from playing live after their US shows in October this year, just like the Beatles in 1966. Frankly it’s getting impossible to make ourselves heard above the screaming of teenage girls, and I increasingly want to stay at home shooting up heroin, reading the Tibetan book of the dead and making tape loops on my Revox A77.
This Saturday therefore will be the last chance for Londoners to see Lemmy trip over his guitar lead and smack himself in the mouth with the microphone, Mr Stix take his shirt off and laugh at Lemmy tripping up, Janie Too Bad looking sassy and wishing she was somewhere more classy, and Lowdown swearing at his delay pedal.
All this will be occurring at our home-from-home, Ryan’s Bar, where we played our first show 5 years ago. That’s progress for you. We are delighted to be sharing the bill with our dear friends the Hipshakes who we have shared many hyuks and hi-jinks with from Sheffield pub backrooms to Parisian basements to Sardinian beaches."
Black Time + Hipshakes. Saturday 29th August. Ryan’s Bar, 181 Church Street, London N16 0UL. Buses 476, 73, 393. Toptrain Stoke Newington and Dalston Kingsland.
