George Galloway At Rock And Roll Book Club
Get Very Cheap Tickets Here!

Arguably the most rock n roll/controversial politician of all time and the most recognizable Scottish voice in the UK, George Galloway joins author Julie Hamill in conversation about his highly acclaimed audio book ’Street Fighting’, with a signing, an audience Q&A, all followed by by a 1970s inspired DJ set from ‘glamnesiac’ Tony Bugbear Gleed. Click on the pic of George at Boogaloo Radio above and get a wee aperitif of this fabulous event as Tony and Julie get to grips with George’s outstanding tales of the 20th Century’s most disrespected decade, live on air at Boogaloo amidst a fondue full set of excellent tunes, some picked by George his good self. Please excuse some slight technical issues. So… George Galloway was born into poverty in a slum Irish immigrant quarter of the Scottish city of Dundee. He began the 1970s running wild in a gang and ended the decade, as most people said, running the city itself. Shocking from the start, Galloway’s memoir interlaces his own young life into the most turbulent decade in British history, film, music, football, strikes, war in Ireland – indeed, war throughout the world. To understand the 1970s is to understand George Galloway. And vice versa. George Galloway; like him or loathe him. You’d be lying if you said he wasn’t interesting…

Charlie Finke, artisan frontman and songwriter extraordinaire with the always stunning ‘wrong rock, odd pop’ band The Cesarians, also stars in our Boogaloo Radio show above, as you’ll know if you’re listening in. Click on George uppy there! And find a beautiful audio visual Cesarians (Christmas) Easter Egg behind Charlie just there. So… Christmas In King’s Cross…. where the trains take you internationally South into Europe, or Up North in to the English Brexit heartlands. Something to ponder as we come together in the name of the baby Jesus. Actually of course this period is more correctly called ‘Advent’. Which means ‘Coming’. The Coming of Christ, or the coming of something altogether more primal and pagan? Well here’s a band who once proclaimed ‘I’m With God’, and always take a devotional approach to their remarkable music. [more] The Cesarians gift to you and me is intensity, songcraft, passion, raw emotions. The advent of something dark, beautiful and inordinately powerful. Nobody else does what they do. The Cesarians’ Yuletide party is a night out you cannot miss. But tonight is a big night for Fabio from The Cesarians and his other band, his long standing other band, The Washington Rays, who take poll postion tonight and launch their wonderful new long player. ‘The New Sound From Yesterday’ is the brand new album and this title neatly sums up the Washington Rays’ sound… Northern Soul, beat groups and 1960s girl groups and solo singers(Dusty, Sandy, Chris Clerk) are all in the mix and it’s done so very well with toe tappin’ tunes, impressive harmonies and ear worms aplenty. Soulful, sassy, subtly psychedelic. 3 years in the making, the new album showcases their songwriting diversity and offers a uniquely vivid psychedelic soul & pop sensibility. Cowboy Flying Saucer – ‘An experimental vehicle for sonic fun and adventure. Influences: time, space, electricity, tardigrades, God Saves The Earth Flying Saucer Foundation, The Middle Ages, smoke blackened paper, spring reverb, hypnosis, isolation, beer, celestial bodies, insects, rebounding objects, internal ramblings, dreams ‘ To these ears also The Fall, early Stereolab, The Monochrome Set and the more esoteric end of Joe Meek – very Fall vocally, nice cheapo keys and FX and cranky, clunking chords. Great!
