Physical Merchandise Sales Suspended

We are suspending the sale of physical items during the current crisis.  This is mainly because we don’t have a warehouse full of items but a series of individual musicians with their own stock.

We will make CDs and Vinyl available again once the lockdown has been lifted.

All current live orders should be in the post in the next few days.

IF YOU HAVE NOT CLAIMED A REFUND FOR YOUR EASTER MELTDOWN/CRAVATS TICKET YET PLEASE DO SO – THERE ARE EIGHT OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT ASKED FOR A REFUND YET – PLEASE CONTACT US prestwichennui@gmail.com TO ORGANISE THIS

The English Disease – A Virtual Gig

There are of course more pressing issues than introducing a band right now as we struggle against a global pandemic, but, The English Disease,  having readied themselves for their debut and with a run of gigs to follow that have had to be cancelled/postponed,  decided to invite our trusty man with a camera Paul G Forshaw to their  rehearsal room to document their sound.

A very new and exciting band. Treat this as a virtual gig……let us know what you think!

Bang Bang Maxwell -drums
Maximus Volume – guitar
Max Factor – voice

To clarify what is going on we invited Max Factor to introduce each of the songs in the set:

Is that punk rock enough for ya?  :  fed up with being told what ‘ I is ‘ and what ‘ I ain’t ‘ this is a riposte to the soulless fakes and plastic conservatives who uphold the rules of punk orthodoxy.

Sex Pigs : creepy middle aged men sliding right up tight against pretty young things at gigs

Crypto Queen : the One com scam , persuasive and lucrative but not for the investors

Bad Acid : what it says on the tin , life can be a bum trip and we all need to love and be loved.

Politic dog : there is no escape for any of us , politics, like it or not, affects every thing we do , for those who don’t care it may be time you did .

20 minutes in Mostar  :  a memory , a true tale of visiting a country on the brink of war and playing a game of football with innocent children , did they survive the horror that awaited them ?
