The Severed Limb are a young six-piece band from London who play roots influenced music for a contemporary audience. Their skiffle-style line up includes washboard, guitars, double bass, drums and accordion.

Their music has been championed by Steve Lamacq and Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2, Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music, John Kennedy on XFM, Andrew Weatherall on XOYO, and Dave Gorman on Absolute Radio.

In April 2011 Steve Lamacq invited the band into the famous BBC Maida Vale Studio to record four tracks for a BBC 6 Music session. The tracks were filmed (see video section of this website).

The band have also performed live on Clive Anderson’s ‘Loose Ends’ radio show on BBC Radio 4.

In May 2012 The Severed Limb performed at the Royal Albert Hall, supporting Imelda May who personally invited them to play.

In September 2013 as part of BBC Radio 4’s British New Wave season several Severed Limb songs were used to soundtrack Robert Rigby’s acclaimed dramatisation of Alan Sillitoe’s 1958 novel ‘Saturday Night and Sunday Morning’.

The Severed Limb’s unique style encompasses a wide variety of musical styles including skiffle, folk, punk, zydeco, cumbia and rock and roll.

At the beginning of this month we hosted a Pancake Party in association with Home Spun Sessions to help raise funds for The Big Issue Foundation.

This post is to thank all involved and to let you all know that we raised £187.50 which is almost the average cost of an outcome for a big issue  vendor and so could help move someone on into housing, support them to get into college or employment. It’s only a small amount raised but to think that having such an enjoyable night because of time, money and talent donated by those in a position to do so could help turn a life around, makes it very special indeed.

 

I would like to thank Nic Hilman and Moira Hornik and Ram (The Floripa Chef) for there pancake cooking expertise and Sainsburys in Whitechaple (1 Cambridge Heath Rd, London E1 5SD) and The Co-op (Old Street 185 Old St, London EC1V 9NP) who both donated £10 towards the ingredients used to make the pancakes. Thank you to Whom By Fire and Severed Limb who both gave merchandise towards the raffle and played blinding sets for our entertainment for the night and Simon Landin of Home Spun Sessions who, played some amazing vinyl and made sure as ever that the sound was spot on.  Thank you also to Floripa and all the staff.

And lastly, Thank you to you all who came and supported the cause. We had tremendous fun! We’ll be doing it all again next year.

Seraphim Kelly at 8.00

Seraphim Kelly is an exciting up and coming singer songwriter from Belfast, Ireland. He moved to London in April 2013 and in between working on new material you can often still find him busking on the streets of Camden. With a rich and diverse background in music that took Seraphim on a journey of self, he
re-discovered his roots in folk and country. Adding his own personal touch and delivered with a voice so powerful and rich, listening to Seraphim perform his songs is always a deeply emotional experience. His inspiration stems from often simple but meaningful experiences and encounters, connecting with people from all sorts of backgrounds which lead to an emotionally driven delivery that reflects his heart and passion for life and song every time.

+ DJ Samantha Pink Panther & Friends will be spinning some dance floor classics late into the night.
