Murder your Valentine 

Here it is, our new video for Murder of Crows.  It was shot over a wet and dreary day at High Elms Manor outside of Watford by the talented Dan Cayzer.  The song is available on our debut cd Thrup'ny Upright and can be purchased in our Shop 

What could be more appropriate for Valentine's day than murdering your sweetheart?

We hope you enjoy it!


Auld Lang Syne 

Most people are happy to see the end of 2016 as it seems a record number of beloved celebrities took their final bow.  We of The Filthy Spectacula had a lovely year, actually.  We played many wonderful shows, met lots of fantastic new people and released our debut full length album.  As we stagger our way through this festive season, we would like to raise a glass (or several) to everyone that made 2016 special for us.  To all the people that came to see us and spent their hard earned lucre on our…Read more

Keep watching this space and thanks ever so much for your continued support!


Asylum Seekers 

We are a flamboyant bunch.  We try to offer a visual as well as an aural feast at our shows.  What we lack in boyish good looks, we (over) compensate with wardrobes that reflect our personas in vivid detail.  We usually stand out from the crowd, with Weekend at the Asylum being a notable exception.  This year marks our second appearance at the world's largest gathering of Steampunks and we enjoyed it immensely.  We were hard-pressed to stand out from the crowd but gave it our best effort. Mr. E was…Read more

Return to The Mill 

We were so glad to be invited back to The Music Mill in Plumstead.  A great venue full of wonderful music lovers.  I would ramble on about the show but The Riddler summed it all up so brilliantly in his blog.  Click here to read his marvellous missive.  

Hootananny Brixton Review 

Our return to Stranger than Paradise at the Hootananny Brixton was most enjoyable.  Amanda, the hostess with the mostess was her usual charming self and put together a top notch evening of musical mayhem.  We opened the batting with our usual buffet of ditties about drinking and debauchery.  The crowd was drinking along with us and looked pretty debauched so we got along very well indeed.  The Riddler leaped off the stage during our final number and fiddled with several lovely ladies.  

Next up was the…Read more

Cogs Bar Birmingham Cancelled 

Sorry to inform you but the show at Cogs Bar on July 25th in Birmingham has been cancelled.  This is due to circumstances beyond our control and not the fault of alcohol at all.  We hope to rebook at this fine venue and will keep you posted when we sort it out.

Filthy rewards for the faithful!

Guess what that means? There's still time for your drinking companions, favourite whores, creditors and the busty barmaids at your local alehouse to get their grubby paws on some too (don't worry…
