Beans On Toast Drunk Folk Stories A book from one of Banquet's favourite songwriters Beans On Toast. I’ve written a book! Drunk Folk Stories is a collection of ten, short, true-life stories about songwriting, travelling and drinking. Featuring the likes of Billy Bragg, Banksy and The Cookie Monster. From Glastonbury to Wembley via The Bahamas, these are my first-hand accounts of drunken escapades, car crashes, recreational drugs and burning pubs. I’m very proud of it.
Beans On Toast Cushty That time of the year again! Never failing to deliver his excellent, humorous lyrics and wit through delightful folk-influenced songwriting. Beans On Toast is back again with his ninth full length album. If you're into the likes of Frank Turner, Will Varley or Chris T-T then you need to check out Beans. An optimist. Pacifist. People's champ. Loveable scamp. Raconteur. And drunk folk-star. Nearly a decade in the game, Beans on Toast has established himself as many different things to many a listening audience. And as ‘Cushty' may suggest, Beans on Toast is as bristling with ideas and identity as he's ever been. Xtra Mile CD
Beans On Toast A Spanner In The Works It wouldn't be the first of December without a new Beans On Toast album as the tradition now goes. He never fails to deliver acoustic, politically inspired folk-punk and doesn't fail here on his eighth album. With his unfaltering DIY ethic still at the forefront of its making, ‘A Spanner In The Works’ sees Beans embracing technology to create a record simply made on a laptop, around a mate’s house. While the new recordings still have Beans’ trademark three chord folk songs at their heart, this time around each track is layered in myriad beats, loops, synths and samples, spanning an array of genres and styles, that make for an album by Beans unlike any you’ve heard before. Recorded over a single weekend with old friend and long time collaborator Scampi Dan, the album is a fresh and different, but very much a welcome addition to the Beans On Toast catalogue.

Beans On Toast Rolling up the Hill As the yearly tradition goes, Beans On Toast releases his new and 7th album on his birthday! It was recorded in Kansas with husband and wife country duo Truckstop Honeymoon. We're big fans of B.O.T., he always puts a smile on our face either with any of his releases or when he plays in Kingston. His acoustic witty-folk-punk songs are going to sound great on this album! The duo brings together double bass, mandolin and finger picking sounds to Beans on Toast unique art of songwriting. Of course though, they were still joined by long-term partner in crime Bobby Banjo, on harp and banjo. Throw in a couple of Kansas players dropping in some horns and some drums and you’ve got a Beans on Toast album that is fresh, fun and exciting whilst at the same time not losing any of Beans on Toast’s original cheap and easy English attitude that has got him to where he is today.
