The Hare & Hoofe | Halloween Special
October 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm£10
The Hare And Hoofe headline this not to be missed Halloween Special onboard LV21.
Come see their phenomenal live show of primeval drums, fuzz bass, lashings of guitar and synth noises from another planet and prepare to be spooked!
Some describe them as ‘educational psych’, others prefer ‘polytechnic beat’, still more as ‘a seventies garage band’. Tales of the dawn of the Bronze Age, of fabled, neighing creatures, and simple crustaceans. Your feet will move in mysterious ways, your hands will clap, your brains will be frazzled.
DJ Tips will be spinning the tunes on his wheelie bag and The Wicker Man screened in the bilges.
One of Hare And Hoofe’s soundes titled ‘The Ladye Lovibonde’ tells the story of the legendary schooner that is alleged to have been wrecked on the Goodwin Sands, off the Kent coast of south-east England, on 13 February 1748, and is said to reappear there every fifty years as a ghost ship. The story goes that the ship was at sea on 13 February because her captain , Simon Reed, had just been married, and was celebrating the occasion with a cruise. Despite the longstanding sailors’ superstition that it was bad luck to bring a woman on board, Reed had brought his bride Annetta with him on the ship. According to legend, the first mate, John Rivers, a rival for the hand of the captain’s young wife, was pacing the decks in jealous anger. While the captain, his wife and their guests were celebrating the marriage below deck, the first mate was seized with a fit of jealous rage. Casually drawing a heavy, club-like belaying pin from the rail, the mate walked softly up behind the crew member at the wheel and felled him to the deck with one crushing blow. Rivers then seized the wheel and steered the ship onto the treacherous Goodwin Sands, killing everyone aboard…
