"The Beckett"
The Beckett Newsletter: 16 May 2002
16 May 2002


I have it on good authority (John Kettley's) that this Friday and Saturday have been penciled in the diary as 2002 Summer. I doubt we'll get much more of it, but all the indications are that Ye Olde London Towne will be full of people this Friday night and Saturday, full of the joys of Summer, sinking an ale or even perhaps a glass of Chardonnay or two.

As part of Britain's "Welcome Summer" campaign, The Beckett play their first Friday Night, West End gig at a venue just behind Oxford Circus. It's a relatively early finish, giving plenty of time to hit the town and spend some of your hard-blagged overdraft. Read on for details of the next two May gigs.


: The Lil Backyard Club, West End : Fri 17 May 2002

This night used to be held at a venue by Great Portland Street station and was always a great night out in a really intimate environment. The night is now held in  a pub called The Phoenix on Cavendish Square (up Regent Street with the Nike Town store on your right, take the first or second left into Cavendish Square). It's supposed to be an even better venue so we look forward to testing their new home! Headline band is called Three Bean Salad. And before you ask, I have no idea!!

6 entry (remember to say you've come to see The Beckett). Better still, entry is just 5 with a flier which you can get from us or can download by visiting and printing them off yourself!! Doors open at 8pm, we're on stage around 8.15/8.30.


A cracking night out. The promoters couldn't have put three more different bands on the same billing (Punk / Rock / Soul ?!) and in spite of the low turnout, those who made it were very much in the mood for a good time, and the venue lends itself to building a great atmosphere. Thanks for coming and heckling - the majority of the crowd had come to see us - you heard LTF, NovaCold, On And On, Broken, Walking With Butterflies, Cowboy Song. Look forward to playing there again.



: The Half Moon, Putney : Thu May 30 2002

After rocking their venue in March, those nice people at the Half Moon asked us back again and we just didn't have the heart to turn them down. If the last gig was anything to go by, it should be a great night. Come down early and give some support to our two support bands.

As always, further details and maps to the venues can be found on our website

: <<title goes here>> : released March 11

We're getting some great feedback from the new CD. As always, it's priced at 4 and you can get yours from us directly, by emailing us (involves paying p&p) or from one of the gigs. Tracks include Cowboy Song, Broken, Walking With Butterflies. Thanks once again to Anna Goodsell for the great artwork.

: first public airing at a gig near you...

We've been oh so busy writing new material recently and seem to be getting even closer to exactly the sound and feel that we're after. there are two new songs we expect to present at the next two gigs which should be incentive enough  in itself! to get your a*ses down to all the gigs.


Don't forget - the next date for your diaries is the Lil Backyard Club / The Pheonix in W1 this Friday (tomorrow!!). Look forward to seeing you there.

The Beckett are David Prestwich, Emlyn Hall, George Georgiou, Mark Brimson and Mark Wardle. This has been a Sunday Session Production.
