NEXT GIG:

SMALL FAKERS

The complete SMALL FACES A's & B's

Friday 22 November

THEY'RE BACK AT TOUCHLINE...

Formed in 2007, the Small Fakers are the UK's only tribute

to mod legends, the sensational Small Faces.

The Small Faces are without any shadow of doubt, one of the most sensational British bands of the 1960s, and are as much a part of the soundtrack to the fabbest decade ever as The Beatles, The Stones, The Kinks, The Who, or anyone else for that matter!
Hitting the charts as teenage mods with their very first disc, 'Whatcha Gonna Do About It', the four diminutive Cockneys went on to release numerous timeless classics including, 'Sha-La-La-La-Lee', 'Here Come The Nice', 'Itchycoo Park' and 'Lazy Sunday'.
But while fans of other great 60's bands had tributes to their heroes to see, to recreate the original live experience, The Small Faces were unrepresented. Until 2007 that is, when they got their very own tribute at long last - THE SMALL FAKERS.

Hits galore at every show including All Or Nothing, Itchycoo Park, Lazy Sunday and many more mixed in with B-sides and fan favourites from the Small Faces' back catalogue. A visual and musical feast for all Small Faces fans.
