The Men They Couldn’t Hang

24th May 2019 – 7:30pm

British folk-punk group, The Men They Couldn’t Hang, came together in 1984 to perform at the Alternative Music Festival in Camden town. They were very quickly championed by John Peel when their first single came out.

By 1988 their third release ‘Waiting For Bonaparte’ saw the group garner recognition across Europe for their political content and raucous live shows, and by 1989 they were playing to over 250,000 people in Estonia as communism began to crumble.

After calling it a day not long after their brilliant 1990 album ‘Domino Club’, the group reunited for a fantastic 10th Anniversary gig of their own in 1994 and then with a reinvigorated determination continued their success.

Over 30 years later, the folk punk group continues on strong as they return to the stage and with 17 albums behind them, we welcome these local heroes for a special show in our Bapsy Hall.
