Anonymous Tip

Anonymous Tip at The Hob, Staines, Sunday Feb 24th 2008 8:30PM £2

Rock n Roll Rude Boys from Twickenham

The fast and furious tones of Anonymous Tip have been rocking venues up and down UK soil since their inception. They have made an impression within the underground punk rock circuit as an unorthodox group of punk rockers with an ambiguous message. Songs about Marge Simpson, confessions of nymphomania, fascism within rock scenes and their deep routed suspicion of the music industry, have helped them gain a notorious and loyal following.

Their statement of intent is to blend emotive chants with fast-paced grooves, at the same time, keeping everything carefully crafted to ignite the monster inside and to provoke debate and passion.

2007 was a great year for Anonymous Tip. Promo tracks off the new Anonymous Tip record “Not Your Orthodox ____” are helping them to gain a newfound fan following that is building upon their status on the UK rock circuit. So much so, that Visual Director Adam Kaleta, (MTV, Jackass etc) used their music on a pan-European, five-part terrestrial television show to document the Nissan Urban Challenge event in 2007.

Blonde Bombshells of 1943

By Alan Plater

Bandleader Betty has a problem. Every time the Blonde Bombshells,
the glamorous all-girl band play a GI camp, their members go AWOL! Now
there’s an important BBC job in the offing and Betty needs to find new
musicians – fast. Among those drafted in are naive schoolgirl Liz, Miranda- an upper-crust saxophonist, singing Nun Lilly and Patrick, a male drummer prepared to don a frock to avoid a drafting! With the line up complete, they prepare to make their way to a secret BBC recording – and potential fame and fortune.

Direct from a sell-out success in London and based on the
award-winning film The Last of the Blonde Bombshells starring Judi
Dench, this hilarious musical play is filled with live performances of
1940’s hits performed by a sensational 8-piece swing band, including Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree, Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye, T’aint What Cha Do, Body and Soul, and 11 more all-time favourite hits by Fats Waller, The
Andrews Sisters, Glenn Miller and many more.

The delicious Blonde Bombshells of 1943 is guaranteed to send you home
with a smile and a swing!
