Sunday April 15th, 2018

We're big fans of stalwart black country brummie acoustic folk/punk poet Dik Guru... Although, as you see, our geography isn't too good. The last time I saw Dik Guru he was downtown and he was pretty much as I recall, he was Cold, Pissed Off and Waiting which I am pitching as the title of his impending book of lyrics, due later this summer...

On Sunday Dik Guru returns to The Chaos Acoustic Club at the Old Moseley Arms to well, rock it. He's gonna have a few new songs and of course lots of the really great old ones that he says he's learnt to play a bit better - after being asked to perform for 50 minutes in Bell End recently, he's sharpened his chops. Well anyone would. At the Chaos Acoustic Folk Club I think a much sharper but no less wild half an hour set is in store. Also worth going along for the always excellent and excellently unpredictable Shameless, David Garsington and intensely entertaining Layla Tutt - you know she's like a one woman with a guitar entire Siouxsie and the Banshees. That intense.
