To celebrate the release of his new album 'The Toothpaste And The Tube', Beans On Toast returns to Kingston to play an in-store set.

The latest Beans on Toast album hits hard and hits home. The cult folk artist takes centre stage, delivering unfiltered takes on the environment's dire straits, the UK political landscape, the ominous rhythm of war drums, and the impending AI revolution. But don't let the weighty topics fool you – this album also delves into the lighter side of life, with reflections on parenthood, whimsical creatures, and the sheer bliss of a sea dip. It's Beans on Toast cranked up to perfection, offering a dynamic blend of profound insights and pure, unadulterated enjoyment.

“The title of this album refers to the line "You can't put the toothpaste back in the tube" which is a fancy pants way of saying - it is what it is, which feels right for this collection of songs. Some of them deal with problems we face as humanity, and some of them celebrate family life or the legacy of a good boozer. There are also songs about losing a loved one or the joy of swimming in the sea. It feels to me like this record covers a lot of ground and a lot of varied subject matter which is nice, kinda like an old skool Beans on Toast record.”

Written with Beans’ usual wit and warmth, its 13 songs were recorded with the sensational blues duo Ferris & Sylvester. Invited into their family home for a week, the trio got stuck into an album that reels through the characterful country blues of “Hope & Glory”, the playful skiffle-pop of “Dragicorn“, to the impactful eco-protest jam of “The Greenwash”. Elsewhere, drummer and organ playing extraordinaire Ross Gordon lends his talents to the team, most notably on the gospel-tinted grooves of “Back Out On The Road” and the powerful and touching “Send Me A Bird”. There’s even space for a Beans on Toast bagpipes debut, on a heartfelt tribute to “Sunny Sunny Scotland”.
