Hallows. Is it screams you’re looking for?

The sun may be shining today. Death, purgatory and corporal corruption may be far from your mind as the scent of late summer barbeques still wafts on the breeze.

But they await us all. Prepare your soul today, while the sun still shines.

And what better way to prepare it than by booking a ticket to Cigarette Burns’ all–celluloid, no–digital, All Hallow’s Eve all–nighter, at the birthplace of British cinema, the Regent Street Cinema in London?

THOSE UNFORTUNATES will be on hand to help you through the dark watches of the night, book–ending each film with their interpretation of tunes from Brit-horror classics like Scream and Scream Again and The Monster Club along with tracks of their own.

Tickets are available NOW from Regent Street Cinema- be there, or ponder on your foolishness for all eternity….

Roaaahhrr! Join us this August at AAAHH Festival 2015 in Germany

We’re thrilled to have been invited back to play Aaahh Records’ magical festival for the third year in a row- between 28th-30th August.

This year the name of the festival is Roaaahhrr!, for reasons that will become clear nearer the time…

As before, it’s at the abandoned Bahnhof Oderberg-Bralitz in Brandenburg, Germany, just outside Berlin. Everyone who’s been in previous years will tell you what a wonderful weekend it is- if we had the chance, we’d stay there all year round.

Early bird tickets have sold out, but there are still tickets available for just €22 for the weekend, including camping, which is amazing value. It even includes food (and the food is great!).

Tickets here- more information- including our stage time- as we get it:

New single — free download!

Our first solo single, “I wish that I could smile like Malcolm” is out now, and you can download the title track absolutely free.

Just follow this link and in exchange for your e-mail address, you can download 2:44 of high quality nonsense.

If you like what you hear, the full release is available as a limited edition four track download.

Order one of our limited edition postcard prints for £4 (only fifty made) and we’ll post it to you together with a unique code to download the full EP. Once the postcards are gone, that’s it!

A birthday party for Malcolm- Friday 12th June

On Friday 12th June, That There Those Unfortunates launch their brand new single – a (fast)moving tribute to Malcolm McDowell, star of If…, O Lucky Man and Britannia Hospital (not to mention Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange).

It’s just £5 in, and you can BYOB.

Space is limited, so although you can pay on the door, you can guarantee a place by prebooking here.

Prebooking also gets you a goody bag including an limited edition art postcard, full download of the three track EP and a bag of Monster Munch.

The band will be joined by the really rather ace Witching Waves, whose 2014 debut album, Fear of Falling Down, was picked by Drowned in Sound as one of the year’s best LPs.

Turn up early to catch a special screening of Lindsay Anderson’s masterpiece, If…, McDowell’s big screen debut. Stay on late to ring in Malcolm’s 72nd birthday, which falls at midnight (as birthdays often do) on 13 June.

Doors open at 7pm, at the Old Fire Station, 61 Leswin Road, London N16 7NX- that’s just off Stoke Newington High Street, here’s a map.

I Wish That I Could Smile Like Malcolm is available NOW as a free digital download from right here.

A limited edition (of 50) art print with exclusive three track digital download will be available at the gig.

Goodbye 12 Bar Club

So it looks like that was probably the last gig at the old 12 Bar Club on

Denmark Street, at least in the guise that we know and love. Ben’s written about his experience on his blog here, and you can get a mosh-pit’s eye view on YouTube below, thanks to our label mates Walk Upright.

The fight to save Denmark Street, St Giles and Soho from death by disneyfication continues, courtesy of our hosts Bohemians 4 Soho and the wider Save Soho campaign; we hope we can lend a hand again soon.
