>>> PAIN + BRITCH = MELODRAMA. Brighton, this Friday

!Newsflash! !Lightning strikes! !Thunder claps! !Theremin wails eerily across the ether!

Yep, them Pains have been coaxed out of hiding for this End-of-Brighton-Festival-Spectacular

Miss Pain + Dear Britch + The Don Bradmans + Rupert Noble video screenings
Hanbury Ballroom, St Georges Rd, Kemptown
Doors: 9.30pm - late
Entry: £5/£4 concessions

Self-styled “1st lady of the ghetto” Dear Britch hosts an evening of Britch-i-ness and faded glamour (like you used to get down the end of the pier). Dear Britch will hold court and perform throughout the evening. Dear Britch must be seen. Dear Britch must be obeyed. For Dear Britch, life is art. Dear Britch may well be the Quentin Crisp / Marjorie Proops of the electro world.

Miss Pain will be headlining this seedy cabaret in their usual inimitable way. They promise cheap thrills and spills, screaming, preening, posing and falling, plus a brand new song about microscopic cameras.
Miss Pain will be onstage at about 11.30pm

The Don Bradmans will also play. (For those of you who know Dom Pain’s civilian name, this may be confusing.) The Don Bradmans regard themselves as “the undisputed champions of chap rock”. There are many of them, and they all go by the name Don Bradman, whilst sporting head-to-toe tweed and well groomed facial whiskers.

Moving pictures will be provided by Mister Rupert Noble, who has been responsible for creating striking pop videos for the likes of The Long Blondes, This Et Al, The Dirty Three. Rupert also made Miss Pain’s dashing ‘Caught My Eye’ video, which will be screened during the evening.

Be there, or be in our bad-books.

L'Amour Electronique

hello Bread-fans,

We just wanted to alert you to the très belle new Tricolore-look L’Amour Electronique MySpace page:


Verity and Dom have been busy finding treats for you, and managed to dig up some delightful video clips (by the power of YouTube).

Currently on site we have:
France Gall et Serge Gainsbourg - Dents de Lait, Dents de Loup
Datarock - Computer Camp Love
Jacques Dutronc - Les Cactus
The Human League - Being Boiled (Live on Granada TV, 1978)

Plus! There’s photos and a full set-list from the recent L’Amour Electronique nite, and your visit will also be soundtracked by Jacques Dutronc’s ‘Le Responsable’, which is a French garage belter of a song!

We will aim to try and up-date our audio and video every couple of weeks, so make sure you check back regularly to see if we’ve unearthed any more lost gems.

Come and say Salut!, and be our friends.
A bientôt
Mlle Douleur
