Helen McCookerybook was the bass player/singer with The Chefs and guitarist/singer with Helen and the Horns in the 1980s, both of which were favourites of BBC Radio 1’s John Peel. After a 20 year break to raise a family, she returned to the stage as a solo artist with a new set of songs ten years ago, and since then has toured the UK regularly, releasing four solo albums and two with songwriter Martin Stephenson. She has just completed a new solo album, ‘The Sea’ that has received airplay from BBC6’s Gideon Coe.

Andrew James Brown is a Wetherspoons enthusiast, poet and thinker, sharing thoughts and wisdom on everything, something and nothing.

Fran Isherwood is a poet with a comedic bent (bit like Housemaid’s Knee) who gads about on the London poetry circuit and (sometimes back of) beyond.She co-hosts Sunday Shenanigans (usually 3rd Sunday of the month) with The Gaga Ladies. Her poems lurk in several anthologies, print and online periodicals and in ‘Poems in The Waiting Room’ which was distributed in surgeries and hospitals nationwide. Her pamphlet Swimming with Endorphins was published in July 2015 and was Longlisted in the Saboteur Awards 2016. Originally from Manchester, she has previous form as a singer, comedy improviser and actor.
Her poetry is a wry, awry, word-playful gallop through the vagaries of life encountering mail stealing snails, lollipop ladies, Glam Rock, insomnia and macabre part time jobs en route.
Warning: May contain puns.

notarobot 0518

In 2018, Spotify announced an auto mixing function that will use an algorithm to perform dj style mixes to your playlists. In the not to distant future Skynet's synthetic intelligent machine network tries to destroy humanity when it realises humans are a security threat. Are these 2 events related? Are DJs the first casualty of the relentless rise of machines? Will they come for you next?

Take a stand against the machines, come down to the Mascara Bar on the 11th May and hear two of the best DJs you've vaguely heard of manually mixing records together in a manner designed to tickle your ears and move your feet - possibly at the same time.

Hyperlink hip hop, silicon soul, firewire funk and digital disco selected by 100% organic organisms.

Don't be a robot and get down here on Friday the 11th May 2018.
