The Secret Showcase Presents... are delighted to have Severed Limb play the Friday Night Whoopee at St. Moritz Club London on the 6th June.
The Severed Limb are a young six-piece band from London who play roots influenced music for a contemporary audience. Their skiffle-style line up includes washboard, guitars, double bass, drums and accordion.
Their music has been championed by Steve Lamacq and Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2, Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music, John Kennedy on XFM, Andrew Weatherall on XOYO, and Dave Gorman on Absolute Radio.
In April 2011 Steve Lamacq invited the band into the famous BBC Maida Vale Studio to record four tracks for a BBC 6 Music session. The tracks were filmed (see video section of this website).
The band have also performed live on Clive Anderson's 'Loose Ends' radio show on BBC Radio 4.
In May 2012 The Severed Limb performed at the Royal Albert Hall, supporting Imelda May who personally invited them to play.
In September 2013 as part of BBC Radio 4's British New Wave season several Severed Limb songs were used to soundtrack Robert Rigby's acclaimed dramatisation of Alan Sillitoe's 1958 novel 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning'.
The Severed Limb's unique style encompasses a wide variety of musical styles including skiffle, folk, punk, zydeco, cumbia and rock and roll.
