Never miss another 'Dubious Brothers' show
The cult 80s anarchic music hall act, The Dubious Brothers have reformed after 24 years. Between 1986 and 1990 they amazed and bewildered audiences all over Europe with their anarchic satirical Pre War sound and spectacular theatrical stage show. Whilst the band played a heady mix of music hall foxtrots, tangos and waltzes, surreal Greek dancing surgeons flung them selves into the frenzied audience whilst ghostly victorian gentlemen rode strange upside down bicycle machines on stage. The set was reminiscent of both the misty docks of Victorian London and the inventing room of Chitty Chitty Bang Bangs' Caractacus Potts.
Although their dance music looked firmly backwards in time , the lyrics were rich in biting modern political satire. "The Dog ate My Poll Tax Form" and What A Lovely Day For A Hunt Sabotage" were particular fan favourites and The Dubious Brothers took particular delight in mocking the British Establishment. No Judge or Freemason was safe from their gaze.

PANIC STATIONS! The Panic Brothers Reunion Tour.
25 years on from the heyday of the high energy, fast paced close-harmony singing duo Panic Brothers, Reg Meuross and Rich Morton are back!
Reg and Rich, who have been called the comedy Everly Brothers, with what the Guardian described as their "spine-chilling harmonies", have lost none of the tight musical and lyrical edge which established them as a formidable live act.
The Panic Brothers tour dates
This popular stand-up and TV comedian is well-known for his appearances on the pop music quiz show Never Mind The Buzzcocks. His career as a performer began in 1984 when he quit his job as a civil servant to follow a new direction as a performance poet on the alternative comedy circuit and supporting bands such as The Style Council and The Housemartins. During the late '80s he worked with Billy Bragg, directing videos for both Bragg and Kirsty MacColl. Phill has an abiding love and in-depth knowledge of popular music, particularly ska, bluebeat and rhythm & blues. His hugely successful standup tours have included Jedi, Steady, Go and Quadrophobia, and he has worked extensively on radio, variously as a contributor, panellist and presenter. He has also toured as part of The Blockheads line-up.
