Below Stairs: Steampunk Charity Event happening in Plymouth!

Below Stairs - Steampunk Charity Event in Plymouth

Good evening ladies and gentlemen,

I am very excited to announce Below Stairs victorian extravaganza happening this October 29th in Plymouth, Devon.

Tickets are available from http://belowstairs.brownpapertickets.com/  and I’m aware that the VIP tickets are selling very fast, so get in there quick if you want one!

Here’s the description from the Event Page:

Below Stairs – Victorian Fundraiser!

With headlines like ‘Children Living in Victorian Conditions’ and cuts to services leaving charities to pick up the slack, there’s never been a better time for giving. So join us in the mists of history for good old-fashioned music, magic, drink and dancing, all to raise money for local charities supporting vulnerable people in the present!

Whether you’re a humble servant, the Lady of the House in disguise, or an explorer stepping out of your Zeppelin from an alternate timeline, it’s guaranteed to be a party Below Stairs!

Costume is strongly encouraged, and please, no jeans or trainers. (Unless they’re an essential part of your spectacular Steampunk ensemble!)

Two floors of fun, music and revelry in a themed venue in Plymouth: Annabel’s Cabaret and Discotheque.

– 8 AMAZING ACTS
– TEA DUELLING
– CRAFT AND MERCH FOR SALE
– VICTORIAN-STYLE PHOTO BOOTH

The Zombie Song

When I'm Killin' Zombies Cover

I wrote this zombie apocalypse parody of George Formby’s “The Window Cleaner” a while back and finally got round to recording it earlier this evening. You may have read earlier versions of the lyrics, but here are the newest ones, if you want to join in or sing your own version!

 
WHEN I’M KILLIN’ ZOMBIES 

Now I go killin’ zombies to keep m’self alive

Wandering round the suburbs with me handy MP5…

Now it’s a job that don’t suit me

But zombie killer you would be

If you could see the hell I see

When I’m killin’ zombies

Armageddon’s just a blast!
T-Virus never worked this fast!
The things I do to save me arse
When I’m killin’ zombies

In my profession I’ll work hard
But I’ll never stop
I’ll kill these blasted zombies
Until I’ve had me lot

The zombie bride, she looks divine
The groom escaped her just in time
A wedding’s just a battle line
When I’m killin’ zombies

The living dead just want your brains
Don’t care for your cash or chains
The streets run red until it rains
When I’m killin’ zombies

In my profession I’ll work hard
But I’ll never stop
I’ll kill these blasted zombies
Until I’ve had me lot

My comrade clutches his behind
Got bitten on his… never mind
Natural selection isn’t kind
When I’m killin’ zombies

—— Clarinet Solo ——

In my profession I’ll work hard
But I’ll never stop
I’ll kill these blasted zombies
Until I’ve had me lot

A zombie staggers down the street
One head shot and that guy’s dead meat
I’ll shoot ‘em back until I’m beat
When I’m killin’ zombies

I’ll shoot ‘em back until I’m beat
When I’m killin’ zombies
