REPENT feat. The Kindest Of Thieves [+]

Thursday 12th December – Free Entry

The Sound You’ll Hear (aka THE SUPREME TRUTH)

GOOD STRONG MUSIC. It will be both VARIOUS and EXTRA SPESH. We do not understand the point of Rihanna but we know that Wu-Tang are forever.

Humans (aka The GOOD and the BADASS)

We play music for good people who have ears and like denim: skinny jeans, baggy jeans, cut-off into hot-pants jeans. And jeans that have Nice’d Up a Dance or two in their time

Drinking (aka The RAPTURE aka The LIBATION)

Two pint buzz is the world’s best buzz: we sell pints. Two-cocktail buzz is also excellent and often too expensive: but not here. Two for one on a variety of lip-smacking brain-shaking cocktails.

Tequila (aka The TEMPTATION of Jesus Chris)

In the year 1600, Tequila was invented by crazy a Mexican especially for lco Cestrians. THAT’s YOU! Together we will celebrate the intelligence and kindness of Don Pedro Sanchez de Tagle by letting you pay 100pesos £1 for one Tequila. Mucho Calor: No Doubt.

The Kindest Of Thieves

Just who are Kindest of Thieves…….within a relatively short lifetime, conflicting incarnations manifested, chief thief Chris Fox developing an almost rockabilly Morrissey persona in August last year, suave and sophisticated, vocals delivered with precision accompanied by lyrically perspicacious themes for his “Serial Mothers and Terminal Hunchbacks” EP.

Never one to rest on laurels, Fox revealed darker edges in December, abducting drummer Sam Lightfoot, dragging him kicking and screaming from Warrington sunlight into a dank, desolate dungeon surrounded by instruments of torture, chained callously behind kit. Here, Chris bared his deepest, darkest fantastical thoughts, formulating a selection of chillingly macabre songs, the lo-fi production only adding to the ominous sense of foreboding, perversely thrusting upon an unsuspecting public immediately prior the festive period the “Ladies and Gentlemen, My Sweetheart The Lonely. ” EP. A delightfully twisted Black Christmas ensued.

And so to 2013…..curiously, Lightfoot, rather than repelled by his experience, developing Stockholm Syndrome, a kinship evolves with tormentor, currently foisting themselves onto the North West live circuit to much acclaim. What’s next………who knows……possibly not even Fox and Lightfoot, such the ability of re-invention. One thing’s for sure, whatever the future brings it can only prove the most enthralling and beguiling of rides…..grab your ticket, hold tight, you might just find you love every single minute.
