  2. PUT ON YOUR TOP HAT, TIE UP YOUR WHITE TIE, AND BRUSH DOWN YOUR TAILS... We invite you to join us at Krakatoa on Saturday 11th March, to celebrate the twin joys of music and Poundland. We'll be hosting the seventeenth annual instalment of our legendarily shambolic AWARDS CEREMONY - complete with tin-foil podium, and selection of tat fabulous trophies for the winners. Three bands will play live - this year, we present the bouncy musical gumbo of GYPSY ROOTS, the sweet prog sounds of the mesmeric SOLQUIN, and the up-tempo party outfit THE SMOKIN BUGLER BAND. It's best enjoyed with a bucket of gin, and although the whole night is very tongue-in-cheek we still encourage you to get dressed up in a suit / kilt / ballgown. Make the effort, tramps. All winners, should they be in attendance, will be interviewed onstage by your co-host for the night, hipster comedian VINCENT PRICE. Crowd participation in terms of cheering (and jeering) is mandatory. Facebook Event - https://www.facebook.com/events/148195125663805/ SO ... Consider the following six nominees, and vote above. You may vote for more than one choice. You'll also be able to vote on Facebook, at some point soon, and also in person at Krakatoa - paper voting slips will be handed out at gigs. All these votes will be totalled and COMBINED to arrive at our one true champion.

  16. We here at Deadloss Superstar are fairly confident that the first page of the Musicians Union DIY Band Manual states that the ideal time to release your BRAND NEW CHARITY CHRISTMAS SINGLE is 12.45am on a Wednesday. So here we are then, with our BRAND NEW CHARITY CHRISTMAS SINGLE, in aid of the charity SHELTER. Despite the song being called "SNOWFLAKES", regrettably it's not really a festive song, so we also remixed it with some sleighbells, ho-ho-ing Santas, a childrens music box and some pealing church bells, all to give it that special holiday cheer. So do enjoy the B-side. To sum up: please, please take the time to check out our BRAND NEW CHARITY CHRISTMAS SINGLE at the follow link! https://deadlosssuperstar.bandcamp.com/
