We've managed to persuade the fantastic David Goo and the full ensemble of his sensational Variety Band down to Brixton for an extra special night at the Albert, backed by the wild skiffle knees-up of Corporal Machine and the Bombers, a six piece cockney folk punk band from Essex famously described as sounding like "Chas'n'Dave on Acid."

Expect onstage chaos with the Bombers' tuba-parping euphonic skiffle-punk mixing up Madness, Chas'n'Dave and Jeffrey Lewis.

Fresh from a sell out gig at the prestigious Bush Hall in Shepherd's Bush, we're delighted to have the incredible David Goo and friends at the Albert.
"Funloving, upbeat music about the everyday life of a psychotic mind."
"David Goo writes songs about bugs, hairy men, hotels, Bon-Bon Jovi amoungst other things... Be prepared for surrealism and sing-a-long from one of the most entertaining musicians on the circuit." Tastebuds TV
