JUNE 28 PURLEY FESTIVAL
Playing the Oval stage (of course...)
To all those people that have been asking when we are playing next, the answer is Saturday 28th June at Purley Festival. To those of you that have been asking other questions, the answers are the Battle of Bosworth Field, three egg yolks whisked gently over a low heat, and in set theory, an arbitrary permutation of the elements of a set X is an automorphism.
