A short ‘n sour performance of the Spunkflakes’ holiday fare, Family, our homage to Brian De Palma’s Carrie with Frank Perry’s Mommie Dearest and Mike Leigh’s Abigail’s Party spicing the pie, plus just a touch of chub chunk comedian Bernard Manning’s lovely old mum adding Northern flavour the mix of fish, chips and peas.

To date our biggest gig and the audience really tuned in and turn onto the messiness — particularly the lighting guy who really made us glimmer and shimmer! — and it felt a bit like bathing in the blood of a new-born child.

...the mainstream iceberg
drifted further from our reach.
