Celebrate this year’s Mutiny in good company of the pirate crew and one truly amazing line-up to boot. Join us and ...
The Seas of Mirth... a sizeable crew with a varying sound marinated in maritime, causing a ruckus throughout the UK and mainland Europe over this decade. Think folk instruments, worldly rhythms, prog rock-esque adventurousness and sea-based song concepts full of narrative and characters. Expect plenty of nautical stupidity and theatrics at this high-energy live show!
As well as a hip flask of spiced rum at all times, Seas of Mirth have two full-length albums under their belts, plus two EPs. The latest of which - ‘Hark! The Headland Approacheth’ (released in 2016 by Nottingham’s I’m Not From London label) has been receiving rip-roaring reviews worldwide.
The ’Mirth are regular festival stalwarts, having graced stages at Glastonbury, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown, Beat Herder, Bearded Theory, Camp Bestival and Nozstock over the last few years plus many more. Perhaps they are infamously known for their tug of war in the crowd during performances. Founding member and guitarist/vocalist Cannonball Paul describes the show as “like The Flaming Lips, but with less budget”.
“A splendid set” - Mark Radcliffe
“A rollicking rum-soaked trip… and a lot of fun it is too” - Prog Magazine
“An extremely refreshing and encouraging type of ridiculous” - Fatea Magazine
And if that’s not enough to get you dripping at the jowels they’ll be joined by . . .
The Filthy Spectacula... a UK based band, gypsy punk, dark cabaret, goth, steampunk add a touch of ska and pirate shanties, mix with dark, add more dark and you are almost there. The Filthy Spectacula continue to bring their absinthe soaked antics to festivals, pubs and clubs and have set their sights on recording their second album in late 2018.
Word of their unique sound and bizarre stage show gets around. Their Victorian and Pirate image pleases the Steampunk community and they are invited to play at various convivials across the UK. Their uptempo songs featuring blistering violin solos attracts attention for sure!
Plus... Pirates Rock... a massive 12 piece band that want to treat your shipmates to something extraordinary! They’re a swashbuckling group of pirates, ready to rock your ship!
