This gig is a little out of the ordinary for the UBP, but all the same we are excited to announce...

The band that grew from the ashes of 'Mumra' (in other words It's been a LONG time since they were last in Ipswich) The Display Team who are an infuriating blend of catchy and off the wall mental. Any fans of the Cardiacs will not want to miss this gig. Horns a plenty, falsetto vocals and a frenzied mess of time changes make up much of their sound. Check out their new album 'Shifts' here -

Support from the gentleman known as Babar Luck. A true wild spirit and a troubadour. I'm sure you'll all know him both as the bass player in King Prawn and for his own inimitable solo stuff. He's a man powered by love, and he'll be dead happy if you get him stoned. 

And opening the night will be The Display Team's trombonist's other band Perhaps Contraption, who describe themselves as 'marching band / jazz / punk / avant-rock / post-classical / something', and sound no less mental or horn led than the Display Team. A brass band with a real difference the likes of which you've not seen at Uncomfortable Beach Party Promotions gigs before. Not to be missed. Check out their website here-
