Picture of our end of “Demons You Show” tour party - “With The Beatles 50th Anniversary (to the day)” Gig.
Rather wonderfully, the brilliant (37th Beatle and Radio 4/’The Now Show’ regular) Mitch Benn turned up to sing ‘Please Mr Postman’ with us at Lux Lisbon (and friends) end of tour “With The Beatles” 50th Anniversary party last night.
Many thanks then not only to Mitch Benn, but also the members of Goldheart Assembly (that’s John staring out the camera in the bottom photo), Munro Fox, Careless Sons, Quiet Lions, Chime H(arries)ours, Barnacles and the singular Vincent Burke for accepting our invitation to help us out with our self indulgent full-album-covering endeavours. Everyone seemed to have a suitably ace time and conversation were in full flow for a repeat on July 10th 2014 for a bit of a Hard Day’s Night. We’ll let you know, maybe (probably) see you there.
Big shout out to everyone who came down, it was pumping (in the smallest venue in London :) )
Lux Lisbon and fwends.
END OF TOUR PARTY! - end of “Demons You Show” tour party - “With The Beatles 50th Anniversary (to the day)” Gig
Now we have finished our “Demons You Show" Oct/Nov tour (which saw us supporting To Kill a King, Keston Cobblers Club and Tom Robinson) - we can now announce this completely different, one off show that we have been planning with a few friends in order to kick back, have a little fun and blow off some water vapour.
A few of us at Lux Lisbon HQ (including our producer James Barr) are massively geeky Beatles nuts. We do sad, sad things, like have all day pub crawls where the only rule is that you can only talk about Richard, Paul, John and the 2 Georges. On our merry way we visit places of such mundanity as an alley where the George Harrison ate half a ham sandwich in1965 or a Starbucks on the site of a studio where a nameless non-beatle did the recording of bongo overdubs to a 1969 b-side. That sort of thing.
Compared to that sort of behaviour, getting a few musical friends together to record and perform the entirity of 1963’s “With The Beatles” for it’s 50th birthday (to the very day no less), is in positivelly rude health. Join us.
We’re happy to say that we’ll have Munro Fox (featuring members of Milk, The Rumour Cubes, Goldheart Assembly and Stu’s 6th form band ‘Revolver’ (some things never change), Barnacles, Quiet Lions, Careless Sons, Vincent Burke and Chime Hours (and The Brouhaha) helping us out in this endeavour.

Demons You Show tour 2013 - Nottingham, Bodega Social 2.11.13
Big thanks to everyone who came down to Nottingham Bodega last night, we had a crackin’ night in the land of Lux Lisbon’s birth and a great till-3am catchup with our band-dwelling mates who are still around that fair city, such as Mountain Schmountain (check out ‘Coffee Machine’ - one of the best songs of 2013), Harlikings, Swound! and the mighty impressive Mr Hope of ‘Ed Hope and Friends' who opened for us and put us up. Totally Sooper Dooper. See you next year Nottingham!

Fresh off supporting To Kill A King, Keston Cobblers Club and Tom Robinson this week, we’ll be in Nottingham at the Bodega on Saturday 2nd November and Surya at Kings Cross on Thursday 7th November before Birmingham on November 9th. Be great to see you there!
Supporting Tom Robinson @ Queen of Hoxton - 30.10.13
This was so great.
Lux Lisbon supporting Tom Robinson @ Queen Of Hoxton on 30.10.13 + ‘The Mighty Sword Of Justice’
BBC 6 Music DJ and all round absolutelyflaminglovely new music supporter Mr Tom Robinson Esq is headlining a gig for the Small Steps Project at the Queen of Hoxton tonight. We have the honour of playing support with a coupleof tunes along with lots of our talented friends, many of whom joined us on tour in March after meeting on Tom’s songwriting weekend retreat last year (Orlando Seale and the Swell, Vincent Burke, Ardie Collins (and the absent but superb Valleyers (formerly Chailo Sim).
Tom will be playing a new tune of his called ‘The Mighty Sword of Justice” which is a great, great protest song, rallying against the (pretty serious) proposed cuts in criminal legal aid. If you want any info on this or would like any links to articles which I, personally, feel are balanced and let people know clearly what is happening - then just email me (Stu) at email@example.com.
Also very much looking forward to also catching Danni Nicholls, Swami Baracus, Sarah Bleach and the hardworking Melissa James who has put on so much work to put this on. This is the link for advance £5 tickets - http://bit.ly/tomrobinsongigtickets
See you there!
N.B - The above photo is from when Tom invited Stu on his show at BBC 6 Music when "Bullingdon Club" was released in 2012.
Demons You Show Tour - Newcastle Cluny w/To Kill a King and Keston Cobblers Club - 27.10.13
Was a bleedin’ pleasure to open for the buh-rilliant to “To Kill A King” and “Keston Cobblers Club” on Sunday night and serenade some freshly-derby-losing Geordies. A big thanks to the TKAK lads and KCC lads and ladies (lovely, to a man/lady, it would appear too) for having us and commiserations to TKAK for their ‘gettingstuckinaliftinatravelodge’ exploits later in the night, all Partridge style.
So that was Sunday night in Newcastle, but we also had the pleasure this fine Tuesday evening, of seeing TKAK and KCC play KOKO in Camden, where Stu took a totally ace photo of them that is really good and that, honestly. Credit for the other, and let’s face it, better, shots must go to Dawn and Jowheretogo.
We’ll be back at the Cluny 1 for our own headline show on May 3rd next year. See you there!
Supporting the mighty Tom Robinson tomorrow. Shamone.
