It's a family affair, as Beard co-founder Neil Jaques returns with his super-cute toddler in tow! Stew, Neil and Lucas bring you songs about sharks and porpoises and other sea creatures and much, much more besides!
Highlight of the show is Lucas's amazing live improvisation with our special guest, Dutch free-uke maestro, Dick Van Grobschnitten!!!! Channelling the primitivist third eye spirit of such cosmic travellers in eternal throat majesty like Yoko Ono, Derek Bailey and Spongebob Squarepants, the pair deliver an incredible, once in a lifetime throwdown of radical thought and expression!!! Available tomorrow on art edition 10" vinyl from Beard Records, a snip at £29.99!!!*
All that and toe tappin', Scottish country dance band synth freakouts (no, really!) in the background from the Billy Anderson Band, as salvaged from a charity shop bin by your crate digging Beardsters.
