For many years the undisputed kings of cockney song the origional Cosmotheka faded with the death of Al Sealey in 1999. Even if you're not familiar with them, you will have heard their records. Now surviving member Dave Sealey has rebooted the band along side his son Dan (bass player in Ocean Colour Scene) and will be treating us to recreate the old songs with a new twist.
Dan is determined to drag his crusty, ancient, musical relic of a father shouting and bawling into the twenty-first century. So far, he's winning hands down. What on earth would Harry Champion say?
Gonna be great! This evening is our contribution to the 2012 Stow Festival.
