Beans On Toast Standing On A Chair [vinyl] One of Banquet's favourite singer-songwriters, Beans On Toast re-releases his debut album Standing On A Chair on vinyl for the first time. Nine years after it’s original release I’ll be putting my debut album out on vinyl for the first time. Double vinyl nonetheless. Produced many moons ago by Mumford and Sons' Ben Lovett with cameos from the likes of Emmy The Great, Justin Young and Frank Turner. To be honest, I thought it was ten years when I put the plan together, but hey ho. LP Out of Stock
Beans On Toast Tuesday 3rd December at Banquet Records, 6:00pm A now-traditional Kingston visit from Beans on Toast, to celebrate the release of his new album The Inevitable Train Wreck. Taking on more of an old-school rock 'n' roll sound than his usual folk-punk songwriting, but still focusing his classic and witty lyrics on the bleak future of the human race. Taking inspiration from musical icons such as Chuck Berry and Otis Redding, as well as modern thinkers like Noah Yuval Harari and Greta Thunberg, the album is a collaborative project between Beans and Lewis & Kitty Durham from the much-loved family band, Kitty, Daisy and Lewis. Beans wrote the collection of songs and brought them to Lewis and Kitty, who then rewrote the music behind the lyrics and produced the record in their studio, “Durham Sound Studios”, changing the sound from acoustic folk to the wonderful piece of work we present to you today. “Life is ridiculous, it is hilarious, it can be dangerous and sometimes even tedious. But it’s resilient and it is beautiful and I believe in it. Long may it continue” In-store Grade B. Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of The Inevitable Train Wreck from us. Albums will be posted unless you select 'Collect In Shop' when checking out, tickets are for collection from the shop on the day of the in-store, please bring your order number with you.

Beans On Toast Thursday 6th December at New Slang, 9:00pm It's that time of the year again! Celebrating the release of his tenth studio album, Beans On Toast plays at New Slang. Beans has played in Kingston plenty of times, usually in the shop each and every year for his albums, we're super delighted to see him return and this time to play at New Slang. A Bird In The Hand is another offering of his charming and humorous lyrics and wit, all performed through drunken-styled folk songwriting. 2018 was always going to be a big deal for Beans on Toast with this year seeing his 10th release. Suitably rising to the occasion, Beans went to Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons (who produced his first album ten years ago) and they hatched a plan... At the time, Mumford were camped out in Paul Epworth's legendary The Church Studios making their upcoming album 'Delta'. The studio has a rich recording history including Bob Dylan, Radiohead and Adele, and houses some of the finest microphones and recording equipment in the world. During days off, or between Mumford’s own sessions, Beans and Ben snuck into the studio and laid down 'A Bird in the Hand', Beans’ most accomplished album to date. TIMES TBC but we expect doors to be at 9:00pm. Support is coming from Tim-OT. After the show, it's New Slang as usual where you can expect to hear songs from the likes of Frank Turner, The Vaccines, Wolf Alice, The Cribs and many more until 2AM.
