From the Facebook events page:

Revel in sleaze, voodoo and rock'n'roll - at LOBOTOMY ROOM!

Leave all sense of shame and propriety at the door - when LOBOTOMY ROOM returns to its new home, the subterranean Bamboo Lounge of East London Art Deco boîte de nuit Fontaine's! Friday 28 August 2015!

At last - a club night for the hillbilly beau monde! LOBOTOMY ROOM! Where sin lives! A punkabilly booze party! A spectacle of decadence for the permissive Continentally-minded! A Mondo Trasho evening of Beat, Beat Beatsville Beatnik Rock’n’Roll! Rockabilly Psychosis! Wailing Rhythm and Blues! Twisted Tittyshakers! Punk Cretin Hops! Kitsch! Exotica! Curiosities and other Weird Shit! Think John Waters soundtracks, or Songs The Cramps Taught Us, hosted by Graham Russell (of Dr Sketchy and Cockabilly notoriety). Expect desperate stabs from the jukebox jungle! Savage rhythms to make you writhe and rock!

Admission: FREE!

Lobotomy Room: Faster. Further. Filthier.

A tawdry good time guaranteed!

Blimey! Let’s just say the second half of summer 2015 has been tumultuous. I think I’ve aged five years in the past six weeks or so from sheer stress. In brief: from July onward there was a painful restructure period at work – and I was officially made redundant.  My overheads living alone in central London are high - not having a regular incoming wage is not an option! In a panic, I launched myself into job hunting and within a week of getting the traumatic news of my redundancy, I landed a new role somewhere else. (I just found out earlier today, in fact). Thank God after all this agonising and despair, I can finally go back to being superficial again!

Anyway, it means I didn’t get around to posting my usual lurid tell-all scene report for the July 2015 Lobotomy Room at Fontaine’s until now – the night before the 28 August 2015 one! As a result, this last-minute entry will be a quickie one short on words and heavy on pretty pictures. Normal service will resume soon!
