Three Go Camping In Sussex

The mighty Miss Pain 3 went camping this weekend...Imagine if you can the sight of Verity, Dominic and I cycling along in our best summer outfits...tents strapped to our bikes, smiles on our faces (sometimes). We then watched shooting stars in the sky and didnt really sleep a wink, as it was rather uncomfortable, and Verity and I kept rolling onto Dom because we camped on a slope...But even though we are a little sleepy now, we still agree that WE LOVE NATURE! HURRAY!

love Sarah xx


>>>Save the Freebutt / French Disko 15.07.06 / Vote Pain again

Salutations Pain-fans,

The word on the street is that The Freebutt has been closed due to noise complaints from local residents. This is bad bad news for live music in Brighton, especially as people are being rather cagey about when it will re-open.

Do your bit:

But let’s not let them piss on our parade, keep coming to The Penthouse, and help keep the place ticking over. Here’s a good reason:

L’Amour Electronique has gone MONTHLY.

L’Amour Electronique
Miss Pain DJs play Synth Pop, French Pop and Electro Pop
The Penthouse, above The Freebutt, Phoenix Place, Brighton
8pm - 1am
entry: FREE

Yes we’ll now be drunk on cheap beer on the 3rd Saturday of every month, and you can follow our example...

Join the Miss Pain three for a glitzy soiree of French pop, synth pop and electro pop. Verity, Sarah and Dom will be mixing up a heady cocktail of Serge Gainsbourg, John Foxx, Francoise Hardy, Human League, Stereo Total, Jacques Dutronc, Les Georges Leningrad, Soft Cell, and many more, throwing in a strong measure of Ye-Ye and a sprinkling of electronic delights along the way.

Guests can settle down amongst the striking tricolore decor, lounge in the battered sofas, watch French films and rare footage of Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot, take in some French literature, and even leave messages on the petit Mac Classic computer. All this and a late bar with cheap drinks offers.

For setlists, photos, music and bonus YouTube video delights take a look at our MiceBase
latest videos:
Serge Gainsbourg et Charlotte Gainsbourg - Lemon Incest
Peter Shelley - Homosapien

Finally, Channel 4 SlashMusic seems to have gone a bit wrong, and all our votes have disappeared. So if you voted for us, can you do so again, please?

You can still vote on NME New Music too.
Thanks everyone for taking the time to do this.

A Postcard from Leningrad

The mighty Les Georges Leningrad almost disappointed us and a horde of Brighton-types last Saturday. But they turned up in the nick of time, and blew a hole in our heads with their awesome no-wave-disco-screams-and-perversions. Merci Poney, Mingo et Bobo.

Afterwards they had nowhere to stay, so Sarah offered them her floor, and we took them under Miss Pain's wing. And what did we do with them? Took them to a kebab shop, fed them cheap cider, talked French Pop and stage decor, and taught them puerile swears like 'Wanker'. Aren't we good little Pains?

Catch them if you can in Europe:
