PeteFest 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 1:04 am

 It’s time for another Petefest!
This year it’ll be an intimate affair upstairs at the Camden Head on Camden High Street. Join us there on the 1st Feb from 7pm for a few drinks and the chance to catch up with a few old friends.

There are no bands booked (and no scheduled Dickens stories from Sir Simon Of Callow) this time around but we are planning to have an open mic set up so that anyone who wants to perform can do so. Let us know if you’d be up for that!

See you on the 1st.

Pete in Time Out

This appeared in Time Out this week, and also on the journalist Stephen Emms’ blog, linked to above.

Mat’s eloquent text is here:

Mat Croft (bandmate, 27): ‘Pete was a big personality, a wild-haired, hilarious guy who made an impact wherever he went. We’d been close since our teens so we did a lot of growing up together playing music. A natural showman, Pete was explosive and unpredictable on stage – even at our last show, whilst he could barely stand, he still gave it his all. Everyone felt that the top of Primrose Hill was the perfect place as Pete spent so much time there, and since losing him it’s been a spot to sit and reflect. We put on a memorial concert and so many people donated money for the bench that Pete’s mum Alison was able to start a charity fund, The Peter Stevens Music Project, which provides music lessons at two Pupil Referral Units in Hackney. It’s the sort of work he intended to do when he recovered.’

Pete (Feb) First - A gig…

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 7:58 pm

February 1st was Pete’s birthday and we feel that some loud rock and roll is a good way to remember him!Many of Pete’s friends will be performing in various guises:

Go Rimbaud - featuring Mat, Dom & JS.

Ahymsa

The Klouds (acoustic)

Mungo Mombey (aka Jez Burns)

Plus appearences from Kris, Tom Draper and many others…

This will also be the launch of the Peter Stevens Music Project. We’ve decided to work with Hackney Music Services to increase the music provision at Daniel House, which is a Pupil Referral Unit for secondary pupils in Stoke Newington. It’s a small unit of 40-50 students. The pupils all have statements of behavioural problems, and as such have been either temporarily or permanently excluded from mainstream schools.

Tickets £5 advance from http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/user/?region=gb_london&query=detail&event=251304 or on the door if we have any left!

The Picnic

Filed under: Uncategorized — PetesMum @ 7:14 pm

It was really lovely to see so many people at the bench yesterday. I wonder how long the ribbons will survive? I’m now going to attempt to upload the snaps I took - it may go horribly wrong and I’ll have to call for Dom’s help - hope I don’t really mess up as he’s done such a brilliant job on this website.
All the best
Alison
PS Well, the photos didn’t attach - I’ll send them to Dom and hope he can sort it. Anyone fancy giving me a lesson on such matters?!!!
