This was a night of drinking, dancing and heaps of fun with the unmissable 'Bard of Bradford', Captain Hotknives, retelling hilarious tales of solvent abuse, pigeon hypnosis, skankin ya nana and Buckfast wine.
Also onstage was Jack Blackburn and Sir Eddie Real, laying down a fantastic set of angry beat poetry.

Jack Blackburn and Sir Eddie Real open up the night. And it was great stuff!
The welcome return of Captain Hotknives. This guy is brilliant: funny, sharp, acerbic, political and hilarious.
Spinning tall tales for the chemical generation, the 'Bard of Bradford' passes hilarious observations on life as he knows it. Expect a side-splitting music journey taking in begging, drugs, solvent abuse, pigeon hypnosis, skankin ya nana, and the endless joys of imbibing Buckfast wine.
Local beat poet slams down the angry rhymes with a members or two from The Conformists.
'Consumers of Culture are working for you.'
An ale-fuelled onslaught of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, rockabilly, Mrs Mills and Liberace in a floor stomping package.
BARON BOBBY BAUHAUS (charcoal soul)
More mysterious than Robert Smith's eyeliner bag, Bobby gets dancefloors rocking with quirky, darkside indie-pop and kohl-smudging breakbeats.
Videos and photo slideshows of street photography, random amusements and weird shizzle from the internet.
The Albert is less than two minutes walk from Brixton station and a few minutes from the Brixton Academy.
Turn left out of the tube station, take the second left down Coldharbour Lane (by the KFC), go past the Prince of Wales and it's the next pub on your left.
