We’re using this event to launch Cosmo‘s single F@ck the BNP. The BNP were in Cardiff yesterday (Monday 2nd May) and 30 antifascists turned up to say hello. The BNP are in meltdown but are trying to target seats in the Welsh Assembly – hence the single launch. We’re hoping to raise money from the release for Welsh Antifa who are going to be mobilising antifascist activity in Wales soon . So buy the single this week and tell the BNP where to go!!

Clayton Blizzard did the first FAF night back in October. We were so shocked he’d never done a headline show in this city we’ve dragged him back across the Severn to feed him to us lions once more.

“This is what music should be about: fusion is the future. Black meets white, genre meets genre, folk and phat, inspiring and pure genius.”
“Ultra witty acoustic hip hop and political songs of the people; the original intentions of folk re-incarnated in a modern medium. It’s entertaining, endearing and occasionally uncomfortably on the money.”
“Cult figure on a steep ascent. Few artists have you in stitches, fewer have you in tears. A unique and glorious performer, he has you in a headlock throughout.”
J-us are a duo from Cardiff via Guinea. They perform phat, lo-fi beats and combine it with singing and MCing. All aspects of life covered. Some tunes to follow.
There will be some VERY special guests performing on these evening – including a local character you would never believe could play and sing. Stay tooned 😉
ONLY 2 SQUID!!!!!!
The fascist BNP are standing in the Welsh Assembly elections and UK local government ones too. But look what’s happening:
No time to be slack, mind. Let’s keep up the pressure!
Post script – this event also included Lou Noble, who stepped in to do the penultimate set at the last minute, and local lege Adam Johannes who had never played in public before! F@ck the BNP got to number 3 in the Amazon folk mp3 download charts, ahead of Joni Mitchell, Simon and Garfunkel and others, and the BNP got 0.8% of the vote in Wales. They were also decimated in the English council elections.
