Men They Could Not Hang at the Borderline Club

The Annual Christmas Show from The Men They Couldn’t Hang, Britain’s best and wildest folk-rock-punk band. Still led by original members "Cush" (vocals and guitar), Paul Simmonds (guitar, bouzouki, mandolin, Keyboards) and "Swill" Odgers (vocals, guitar, tin whistle and melodica) with assorted guests and friends, the band still rock like crazy.

Expect all the great songs, old and new, including "Green Fields of France’, ‘Ironmasters’ and ‘Walkin & Talkin’".

Tonight (and for this one night only!) joined by special guest ATTILA THE STOCKBROKER, described as: "the sharp tongued, high energy social surrealist poet and songwriter".

Order your ticket (£17.50) from Rhythm Gigs and let Dave know you are going so that we can meet up: http://www.rhythmgigs.com/

Music starts at 7.30pm and finishes promptly by 10.30pm leaving plenty of time to get your train home. This is a great venue full of friendly and polite people. We stand near the stage to watch the music but there is always seating space with tables towards the back of this cosy club.

Underground: Leicester Square tube.

    Several people have asked me about the origin of the name of the band we are going to see this Friday at the Borderline Club – The Men They Could Not Hang. The Band’s web site sadly sheds no light on this. However the original “man they could not hang” was John Henry George Lee better known as John "Babbacombe". Lee was an Englishman famous for surviving three attempts to hang him for a murder he very likely did not commit. The band are a sort of very lively almost punk folk band like The Pogues, with a fanatical following. This will be their annual Xmas show at the Borderline and they will be supported by ace stand-up comedian and poet Attila the Stockbroker.

    This will be a great night for getting into the Xmas mood

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
