MARK RADCLIFFE & FOES

Music |
11th July 2014

From deepest, darkest Cheshire, land of perpetual twilight, emerge rambling radio roustabout Mark Radcliffe and his band Foes. As opposed to friends.

With a selection of songs to burn coffins to, these misanthropic minstrels and glum-pop pall-bearers of bar-room bathos bring tales of loss, regret, ruin, heartbreak and dead dogs.

Mark Radcliffe is one of the UK's best known broadcasters, presenting shows on BBC Radio 1 for over 13 years alongside Marc 'Lard' Riley, before moving to BBC 6Music and Radio 2, where he currently hosts the weekly Folk Show. A six time Sony Award winner, Mark also presents TOTP2 and the BBC's coverage of the Cambridge Folk Festival and Glastonbury. Born from the ashes of Mark's previous band, The Family Mahone, Foes feature former members Chris Lee, the dark prince of the mandolin, and Rusty Mabbutt, still striving to achieve two pin-falls and a submission over the piano accordion. Noted Northwich bare-knuckle knave Mark Woolley is also on hand to lend lilting whistle and hit a box with barely concealed menace, while to avoid the need for electronic tagging, Rusty’s legal advocate Sir Charles Cargill QC is demonstrating why he’s the finest bassist at the bar. And the bar.

An evening of abject misery is guaranteed.

Venue: Malt Room – cabaret seating
Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
