The Malingerers – Lock Tavern Thurs 28th March 2013
Muswell Hillbillies, Camden cowpokes and, um, Streatham sheriffs, ain’t the only folks welcome down at the second anniversary night of Countrier Than Thou. In fact, people who’ve never even known the joys of a Townes Van Zandt record are allowed in to this rootin’ tootin’ party, which puts the western into NW1. So no one needs to be wearing their snakeskin cowboy boots, mother of pearl buttoned shirt and string ties to mosey on in, though it would be nice. Bonanza DJs’ set will be rammed full of the kind of cosmic and outlaw country that Waylon and Gram are no doubt kicking back to up in heaven and there’ll be live sounds from Florence Joelle & The Sterling Roswell Band as well as Turnstile Junkpile. Andrew Weatherall will then be taking a stand behind the decks with a spaced-out rockabilly selection.

We’re pleased to announce one and a half new members to the Malingerers line up. The excellent Julian Stone has moved on to pastures new in deepest darkest Northampton we wish him well trying to step up his solo material.
Time for a change. Introducing Tim Palmer on Country Fiddle, we’ve been stalking Tim for a while. He appears to share our passion for Old Time Blues and Country and after only a few rehearsals has added another dimension to The Malingerers sound. It’s like there’s always been a space in the mix for a fiddle player and now we have a great one. Check out our upcoming dates to catch him in action. Tims Face Book page here
More news: the legendary Peterborough Drummer/Percussionist John Mosely has been kindly lending his services adding a solid driving force and some classic brush work. John will be joining us for various dates over the coming months.
