I have a spare ticket for this Saturday which would be a shame to go to waste. If anyone's interested get in touch. Selling at face value (obviously) and I will reallocate the ticket via the facility provided on wegottickets.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Mr. Foozling and Mr. Luckman deem it necessary to start the ‘FOR THE BENEFIT OF MR. SMITH’ show at 9pm prompt, doors will open at 7.30pm. The reason being they have inserted too many Cardiacs recordings and they cannot be removed.

Lovely limited edition ‘FOR THE BENEFIT OF MR. SMITH’ t-shirts and posters will be available for purchase ONLY on the night so they can raise some more stinky money for Tim.

Please note that this show has sold out, and Mr. Foozling and Mr. Luckman strongly advise there will be no ticket sales on the door.

Therefore kindly remember to bring your all important e-ticket number and a name along with you.

Mr. Foozling and Mr. Luckman hope this announcement has been informative and look forward to your loyal presence on Saturday.

Any chance of doing this more than just the one time? Maybe take it around the country, especially for those who don't live in that London :)

cheers

Come to Bristol! It's the official Cardiacs capital of England! 8)
Hello little doggy,
My, you are a nice dog,
What did you just say then?
You could do some tricks! Oh, good, then will you show me?
My word that's a good one!
Would you like a cigarette?
No you can't, they're bad for you!

Well, the first answer that comes to mind is "in my front room" but I'd fear all my special things might get broken :shock: :)

I guess around our way having an event in Leicester or Nottingham, rather than my home town, makes the most sense as its easier for folks to wend their merry way home from either of those.

A few venues spring to mind -

The Shed in Leicester (http://www.shedvenue.co.uk/)
The Cookie Club in Notts (http://www.cookieclub.co.uk/),
The Vic Inn in Derby (http://thevictoriainnderby.co.uk/website/)

are all probably of about the right size and "ambience" :)

cheers

Steve

What a wonderful night. I think the setlist must have been about 2 1/2 hours. I only left once for a slash during Spinney, seeing as you can't really jump around to it. Lovely to see EVERYONE singing EVERY word and juddering to every musical twist and turn. Well done Foozling and Luckman.

Yes what a wonderful evening!
Enduring memories of smoke, UV lighting, confetti, lovely delicious cakes, top-hats, chatting to The Consultant, the BEST music, and a few tears shed during Whole World Window.
Big thanks to Messers Foozling and Luckman!
Can we do this again please? :D
And if she only had stopped making that hissing noise . . .
