Armed with the the ethos “Do Not Be Boring,” the night’s founder (actor/musician) Richard Strange states that:
“Since re-opening in 2010 it has been my intention to harness the “can-do” spirit of Cabaret Futura and relaunch it, thirty years later, as a once-a-month meeting place for artists, performers, writers and free thinkers. Rather than being simply a music club or a comedy club, Cabaret Futura features talks, lectures, interviews and short films, as well as performances and uncategorisable entertainments. A typical evening lasts 2-3 hours, on a Monday night, in a convivial atmosphere- tables and chairs, drinks and conversation. It is be a place to network, to be inspired, and to relax.”

An electronic pop duo featuring vocalist Lou Barnell and Guitarist/Producer Stergin. They create sparkling otherworldy horror stories and dark, bone-shaking electro pop. ”If Kate Bush and the XX mated in orgiastic abandon; LAXMI would probably be the result” (Jess – Shambala)
‘Rules Made By Men Who Never Sleep’ EP Out: February 2015
Swallow and the Wolf are a Suffolk boy and Australian girl playing songs of every day passions, extraordinary moments, and unsung heroes. Their sound is a rich mix of driven and picked acoustic guitar, mercurial piano, blended vocal harmonies and deep drums. Their latest EP, ‘Fire,’ was released in June 2014 to positive blog and radio support…

“Like a vision from another world, a view of a parallel universe. Superb pictures of London reflected through puddles open up new perspectives.”
– The Mirror
“Amazing images which offer a new perspective on life in London”
– Evening Standard
“This new series of images exhibit a heightened sense of uninhibited love for one’s city. There’s something about seeing a town through the blurry ripples of a splash of water on the ground that makes it seem all at once magical, haunting, and beautiful. Through the cracks in the streets an image of London’s greatest architectural attractions emerge.”
Sweet Tooth wish to cordially invite you to the launch of London in Puddles – an exhibition of Gavin’s evocative photographic series of iconic landmarks and city scenes:
We will not only be unveiling the limited edition prints but also a new song inspired by our city, performed in a short acoustic live set. We’d love to see you there if you’re in London next week! Kisses, Fleurtini x
Whilst we wait (impatiently!) for the ‘Venus in Hollywood’ video’s final edits, Gavin and I thought we might have a little fun and do some filming ourselves.
Partially as a gift to our friend Nico, for whom this is one of her favourite songs. And partially for Gavin to try out some of his new film-making skills (another string in his creative bow).
This new clip is the result! Sweet Tooth perform the traditional song, ‘Black Is The Colour Of My True Love’s Hair,’ live in our studio. One take, no headphones, spill and all… Vocals by Fleurtini. All other instruments and music production by Gavin Hammond (bass and trumpet were overdubbed immediately after in one take).
Filmed (live), edited and produced by Gavin Hammond.
(PS. The song itself is a celtic traditional which has been covered by luminaries such as Nina Simone, Joan Baez, Esther Ofarim and Christy Moore. We love how it mystically takes on such different qualities depending on the artist singing it, so we’ve tried to put our own ‘Sweet Tooth’ stamp on it with this recording. We’ve decided to give the track away for free as a reward to those who join our mailing list. Do this via this link, or by entering your email address in the text box in the side-bar –>) ♥
You may already be familiar with Gavin’s beautifully moody and evocative photography as it’s been featured here on our site before.
The London Eye
If not, I’d like to remedy that situation right now, in light of the fact that it would be remiss for our fans not to know about it considering he’s received coverage in many of the UK’s national press this week!
He told the papers: “I stumbled upon my first puddles image by accident. My bicycle had been stolen so I was walking into town along the South Bank for once rather than pedalling past it in a hurry. It began to rain as I approached the London Eye and a large flock of tourists were blocking my way. I hate to be in a crowd so I stared at my feet as I waited for them to pass. And lo! a beautiful reflection of one of the gondolas emerged from a puddle, like a vision from another world, a view of a parallel universe.”

You can see his entire London set here on his Flickr page, (please get in touch with us via or contact page if you’d like to purchase prints).
Never one to rest on his laurels, Gavin (and film editor Phil G) also just produced this audio/visual clip showcasing his other sets of snaps, alongside a remix of our track ‘At Your Leisure,’ done by Berlin-based producer and DJ, Deep Child.
