A History of the Last 30 Years in Song :  Speaker/performer: Stanley Accrington


History is usually written by academics using the best available source material & records, & deals with the principal events of the time in question & related trends in society. Asleep already? Memory works differently - all who were alive at the time may recall JFK being shot or Man walking on the Moon, but we all have our individual ways of remembering events that may or may not have had some bearing on our lives. Stanley is a compulsive song writer who often uses current events of the time as the subject matter for his weird collection of compositions & performs these songs all over England & occasionally beyond. For the NfN, he will collect together some of these items to provide a quirky personal history of modern times. Be prepared to have your sublim's sublimated & your recall recalled. He also has a nifty line in commemorative anagrams   7.30pm Buffet 8pm Talk

The Epicentre, West Street, Leytonstone E11 4LJ

Enquiries: 0208 555 5248     or   roskane_at_btinternet_dot_com

The News from Nowhere Club fosters fellowship & challenges the commercialisation & isolation of modern life. We meet on the second Saturday of each month. Free entry, all welcome, no need to book. Disabled access.
