Brizzle Beans – The Stiff Joints live!

Ahoy all!

Apologies for the lack of output with regards to Cool Beans related shenanigans in the past few months/years. It’s been a busy old time for all involved. Chris has moved to Bristol and now works for Made in Bristol TV as an Alan Partridge/Richard Madely impersonator, Jimmy spends his evenings sailing his boat through a sea of freshers, the Welsh Whisperer has smashed apart the welsh language scene and is now seen as a heavenly deity by many there, Dom is in London and has cut down his booze intake to only 6 units an hour and Mickey Michaels, well, Mickey Michaels married Nikki Michaels and lived happily ever after.

With Chris moving to the vibrant hub of creativity that is Bristol, it made sense to perhaps put on a little party, and he’s doing just that – so if you happen to live in Bristol, or be in the area on the 6th October, come on down for a special evening of live music at Mr. Wolfs!

THE STIFF JOINTS

The mighty Stiff Joints put on a hell of a show whether they’re headinling a festival billing or packing out a sweaty pub. Think Madness, Bad Manners, Reel Big Fish, etc – big brass hooks and catchy singalong choruses. A real treat to have them headlining our first Bristol show.

MAD APPLE CIRCUS

Mad Apple Circus have spent the whole summer slamming festivals (including a main stage apperance at Boomtown Fair!) and they’ll be performing a sweet stripped back acoustic set for us all. Ska/reggae/hiphop/jazz delights in a Bristone style.

COOL BEANS DJS + MR WOLFS DJS

A whole variety of DJs playing the platters that matter from 8PM right until 4AM!

No advance tickets, just £3/£4 on the door!

For more info, have a wander over to the FB event here here!

Along the way, there may be a few more Bristol based musical adventures on the way in the coming months so stay tuned!

The New Power Generation – Barry & Angelos Interview

Chris sat down and interviewed the legendary Angelos Epithemiou & Barry From Watford ahead of their June 9th show at the Leadmill Comedy Festival. Their show goes under the name ‘The New Power Generation’ and they promise to identify your weaknesses, expose them in front of everyone and then cure you 100% from whatever rubbish you might have.

In the interview with Chris they discuss how they first met at Mensa, their hypothetical political manifesto and their relationships with the opposite sex. They also chat about Barry’s experience working for the tabloids as well as Angelos’s feelings towards veganism.

Contains some mild cursing.

A Cool Beans Christmas Bumper Package!

Well a ho ho ho fine beaners! Merry Christmas from all of us at Cool Beans. Now usually we take to the festive season like ducks to water, shooting out music videos, radio shows and full 22 minute long television episodes. However this year, we’ve practically done nothing at all! Instead we’re kicking back with a few ales and reminiscing about the good times we’ve had. Thus, here in this blog, is a collection of all things Christmas Cool Beans related that we’ve created these past few years. From the good, to the oh so bad…

The Cool Beans Christmas Special!

We’ve just uploaded our full length Christmas Special that we produced for the MADE Television network in 2015. Also included are the stand alone videos for Festive First World Problems and Have Yourself A Cool Beans Christmas, The Welsh Whisperer at Christmas, plus a very questionable piece of footage from the outtakes involving pan pipes and candles.

Chris Arnold’s Alternative Cool Beans Christmas Mix

Back in 2014, Chris made an alternative Christmas mixtape for the good folks over at Now Then Magazine. It’s basically a mix of all the songs Chris likes to listen to over the yuletide period, riddled with samples from TV and film. Enjoy!

50 Sniffs – Credit Card Christmas

Many of you will have heard of Jimmy’s scamp of an alter-ego 50 Sniffs, his Christmas song back in 2013 climbed the charts and raised a ton of money for flood aid, and rightly so! Fun Fact: Duncan Vaughan AKA Barry from Cool Beans TV produced the track alongside Jimmy.

Sheff Aid Charity Christmas Single

Chris, Jimmmy and Dom all have cameos in this Christmas medley!

The Unseen Bean’s Christmas Mix

Kev Tungatt, the man behind all the Cool Beans artwork, has made a little Christmas mix, and we have to say – it’s a proper cracker!

The Chris Arnold Travel Podcast

A slightly festive edition of the Chris Arnold Travel Podcast, where he sits down for a chat with Adam Smith from the Two Beers Podcast.

Christmas with Longmourne Ratsby

Back before Longmourne Ratsby reached the dizzy heights of going to jail for indecent exposure and releasing his own book of plagiarised tales, he released this: perhaps the worst Christmas song and video of all time.
