Mach Schau Presents A Unique Event In Support Of Amnesty International
29th April 2009
Artist Profile »

This is an announcement from some Fandango friends.

On May 28th, Amnesty will celebrate 48 years of human rights campaigning and advocacy. That's something worth celebrating... So this is exactly what we're going to do. And we're going to do it in an area of London that has one great music heritage and a hell of a lot of local talent to make it a night to remember.

To that end, Mach Schau presents Dirty Stop Out, Little Barrie and The Dirty Feel in aid of Amnesty International. Plus DJs, art, comedy and film from Future Shorts with special performances throughout the evening across 3 floors.

Neil Thomas of Mach Schau said "Its a real privilege to be supporting Amnesty International and raising awareness of their causes through an event such as this with music, film, comedy and art under one roof." Co-producing it will be Virgil Howe who also features in two of the nights bands.

And great bands they are tooĶ

DIRTY STOP OUT is a band created by Agent Provocateurs Joe Corre with "Filthy" Luca Mainardi and The Clash's Mick Jones. Dirty Stop Out has emerged through experimenting with the cultural, visual and musical influences of rock and roll, country punk and electro. They are driven by a desire to fuse decadence and glamour with a rock and roll performance showcase. Featuring lively characters, and lashings of humor and entertainment they celebrate the days of old London Victorian grandeur and vaudeville showmanship. With the addition of the Clash's Mick Jones and backed by excellent musicians, Dirty Stop Out is complete.

"Dirty Stop Out are a colourful band of vagabonds on a mission to revive the forgotten world of sexy, sweaty entertainment." The Guardian

LITTLE BARRIE is a London-based trio whose sound is an exciting blend of hard rock, blues, soul, and funk that calls to mind classic bands of the '60s like Traffic and Cream, and whose loose and groovy earthiness earns it a place near the front of the jam band class.

Plays out like a fresh discovery that's strangely familiar--a '60s soul in a 21st-century outfit. Billboard

Barrie Cadogan is a guitar phenomenon. Uncut

THE DIRTY FEEL are a dynamic trio likened to Led Zep, the Yardbirds and The Meters. The band formed in early 2002, and since then they have excited audiences and promoters alike across London, with their electric, energetic and powerful performances, amassing a hardcore following of rockers, punks and a few funk fans. Armed with a collection of songs set for a June release, The Dirty Feel are now ready to break out to spread the filth.

You leave their gigs wanting to do unimaginably filthy, naughty things ... they play music you have to dance to in true ugly fashion: where your hair flies everywhere and you dont care what you look like as youre so caught up in the moment! Artrocker

'Porno rock, filthy and juicy' The Mighty Boosh

The choice of venue is the wonderful Cobden Club. Located in a magnificent Victorian Grade II listed building on Kensal Road, it attracts an eclectic mix of bohemian Notting Hillbillies, musicians, artists, aristos and locals.

Trusted Places says it's ... ridiculously cool and atmospheric, this place is like a dream... it's normally a members only club so keep your eyes out for special shows.

And there will be cake and free drinks too.
