Rough Magic Vinyl LP Launch 2nd June

Saturday 2nd June sees CICCIC host their third Surf Garage Rock n Roll Night. We will be celebrating the vinyl LP launch of Rough Magic. Support comes from Bristol’s breakbeat favourites Joe James & The Pariahs. Fresh from another European tour, Joe and the boys will be whipping up their usual storm of 60’s psych and soul. Joe will also be spinning original 45’s throughout the night. Yeah baby!


Here’s one we made earlier…
