Gig tonight – Brighton & Hove News article

Helen McCookerybook & James McCallum to bring The Chefs to Woodingdean
Brighton and Hove News
by Nick Linazasoro

“Brighton legends The Chefs were back in the day signed to Attrix Records, who were based at 3 Sydney Street in the North Laine area of Brighton. The Chefs released two tracks on the classic ‘Vaultage 79 (The Other Side Of Brighton)’ compilation album …” continued …

From the end of the article: “It has now been announced that James McCallum (one of the guitarists in The Chefs), and Helen McCookerybook (bassist/vocalist in The Chefs), will each be performing live and then will be followed by their guitar duo covers of four original Chefs songs. This event will be taking place on Friday 27th October here in Brighton, but not at your usual venues, this night will be happening at Nusoul Studio, which is located at the basement of Woodingdean Youth Centre on Warren Road, Woodingdean, Brighton, BN2 6BB. Folks can hop on either bus 2 or bus 22 or even walk from Elm Grove if they wish and their reward will be a cheap bar at the venue.

This is a unique chance to see them reprise a sold-out gig they played together in London in January.”
