“MOZART ESTATE PRESENT:

GO-KART MOZART

LIVE AT THE LEXINGTON LONDON N1

SATURDAY 24th MARCH 8.00PM

Lawrence is as modern as the morning and in high demand!

People of the past were known to use that most notable phrase: 'to blow your mind' – I think it is time to scatter the dust off this old expression and to reinstate it because I can think of no better epithet to describe the effect these songs will have on the discerning listener other than to say they will positively 'blow your mind'!!

Following the announcement of a Go-Kart Mozart appearance at The Social Fitzrovia, on 21st February, tickets flew out of the door and sold out in less than an hour.

So, here’s a second show and we’re expecting high demand for this one too.

Be modern. Come and have your mind blown by Go-Kart Mozart, live in Mozart's Mini-Mart with special guests:

Tickets are priced £12 plus booking fee and Golden tickets at £32 plus booking fee. Tickets will go on sale at 9.00am on Monday 5th February exclusively from: www.4533.co.uk.

Subscribers to the 4533 mailing list will be sent details of exclusive pre-sale tickets available from Friday 2nd February, as well as an announcement regarding the golden ticket option.”

.For Future events, please leave your name and email address in here www.4533.co.uk and they’ll be in touch soon with any news of future events.
I can guarantee you won't regret.

.Also, on the bottom of this page you have my MAILING LIST. No Spam, no crap. Just Lawrence, ok?

.THE FUTURE WIIL TAKE PLACE IN FEBRUARY. Don't forget these 3 major events
1) According to Cherry Red, February will see the release of Go Kart Mozart's - Mozart's Mini-Mart...

WEDNESDAY 21st FEBRUARY 7.00PM

People of the past were known to use that most notable phrase: ‘to blow your mind’ – I think it is time to scatter the dust off this old expression and to reinstate it because I can think of no better epithet to describe the effect these songs will have on the discerning listener other than to say they will positively ‘blow your mind’!!

Come and have your mind blown by Go-Kart Mozart live at the Mozart’s Mini-Mart album launch party. Includes appearances from special guest DJs.

Definetely this ain't been a good year for ex-bass players.
First Mick Lloyd last summer, now...Mick Bund.
I've been informed that Mick Bund (played bass on Pictorial Jackson Review and Space Blues) died last week from heart attack.
My condolecences to family, friends and fans. Fortunately, death is not the end for good artists.
They won't be forgotten
(pic taken from Mickey's Facebook pages)




+++ Sad news for all Felt fans. +++

Felt bassist Mick Lloyd died last summer, 28thJuly 2016. Acording to friends, he had moved to Wales and lived in Fairbourne.

It's finnally out!
Paul Kelly's "Lawrence of Belgravia" is being released from Heavenly Films.
You can pre-order immediately (2000 copies).
I've got mine already

Probably a fake.
I retrieved all possible information from Discogs, According to them, this is a 12" bootleg disc containing demos from 1984 albums "The Strange Idols...." and "The Spendour of Fear".
I don't know almost nothing about the label (Arkain Filloux), except that it's from Belgium.
