Clod ed 32 launch 17/8/18
Clod Magazine launches its 32nd edition in The Bricklayers Arms, Luton, on Friday 17 August 2018. This will be a quiet event, in which members of the team will LOITER in the back room, sales will be sluggish and the point of sale progressively pushed aside, behind the Sky Sports "What's Next" posters, and made increasingly blurry through the consumption of whatever 3.8% session ale is on. Here's the Facebook.
Slow Night 23/8/18
A very special blend of acoustic jazz, library, soundtrack, esoteric, exotic, erotic and primitive rock and roll music. But mainly jazz.

We're giving some away on the night; there will be opportunities to buy at a later date. If this wasn't enough, there's the 10 0'clock raffle. All this in Luton's premier spot, The Bear Club. Look up the event here.

Throw us a bone people, and get down.
We've only 'gone and done it' again. A 32nd price hike edition, which comes with your Clod Mag ed 33 kit. Edition 32 features lots of the usual stuff; lists, poor research, opinions, made up stuff, cartoons etc.

Utter! 18 1/3/18, Luton Hat Factory

Get a clue from this Faceoff page.
Andy K talks nonsense on a radio show
Towards the end of 2017, Andy was invited to talk to Dave O'Brien on Dave's Sunday Hangover show on AUK Radio. Andy waffled about the music side of things, from Thrilled Skinny to The Knockouts and Arndales. Plus Clod Magazine, naturally. Here's a link to a few of Dave's programmes.
Clod at Indie Author Day, Luton 27/1/18

Available as either the vinyl itself with a download card, or as a high quality .wav, both from Bandcamp. Not sure why it's high quality; the recordings are desperately rough and 'shoved together'.
The boys are making all the usual noises about rewriting rock history, though in truth, no one wants them to play.
The Knockouts play Luton Fri 11 December
The Knockouts support the release of The Knockouts Are Went with a rare performance at The Edge Nightclub in Luton, on Friday 11 December. We'll be on early supporting Pure Beauty which should be fun. We'd love to promise some kind of surprise, but it'll just be the usual sort of thing.

The 4th of the Guinness World Record boasting Luton Haiku is now available via Bandcamp. And guess what? You can BUY THE OTHER THREE volumes there too, at a slightly reduced rate.
