Join us in ending 2012…

It’s been a great year for Cool Beans. We’ve had a lot of fun, we’ve had multiple good times, hell we’ve even had a variety of enjoyable experiences and we’re ending it the only way we know how – a quiet sit-down affair in Dom Kidson’s living room, 2 units of alcohol each and a small party popper at midnight.

Of course not! We’re throwing a massive party! Hooray! Warhgh! Etc!

We’re teaming up with The Harley (legendary music venue) and Clothes Line (legendary topless drunks) in bringing you a party that will satisfy and overwhelm all. Messieurs Andy H and Mikey J are headlining the affair, not only two of the best DJs we’ve come across, but also 2 of the nicest chaps you’ll ever meet in the “DJ scene”. Both Tuesday Club residents, they’ve played all over the UK and beyond never, failing to impress the crowds. For NYE they’re planning a special back to back set for us; all aboard the partybus!

Also on the bill are rapscallions Arnivore, Jimmy The Gent, Mr. Stu, General Ron, Lonesome Dom and Andy Enchilada. Last time all these performed at a venue together they left damages to the value of around £300 (if anyone from the Harley is reading this, we promise this won’t happen again) but also left everlasting beautiful and spectacular memories in the eyes of the punters. It’s guaranteed to be a lovely affair and with it being the last Cool Beans event for 3 months we’re all up for a special one!

Musically it’ll be all over the place. Emotionally it’ll be all over the place. Physically it could be all over the place.

Dirt cheap £3/4 tickets are currently on sale from the Harley and online here.

9PM – 4AM (entry still £4 before 10:30PM)

Bring on 2013!


Welcome to the wonderful world of Cool Beans.

Wow, what a great day, what an extremely pleasant day. Not only are we all going boxing later but today marks the birth of our brand spanking, revamped and relaunched Cool Beans website. It’s been long overdue, many people described our first website as and small children were known to faint if they caught a glimpse of the shoddy html coding. Once more, we apologise for all that, please drop the charges.

First of all, huge thanks go to the man like Matt Steer. He’s been working very hard day and night, only stopping every 26 hours for a quick urination and a Twix, in making our online dreams come true. If you too would like a website creating, whether it be a shrine to Abba or a place to showcase your omelette-making skills, please check out Reyt Design, you won’t be disappointed! Thanks also to the Unseen Bean for once more lending his artistic talents and finally thanks to whoever is reading this sentence, because that means our efforts were worthwhile and we can finally stop crying into our pillows at night.

Basically, this website is a massive improvement on the old one with some tasty new features. We now have a Cool Beans Management page, a free downloads page, a galleries page and a blog page which when clicked should bring you right back here. All our integral links have been embedded in the footer and we’ve been told the site looks grand on your smart phone, tablet, netbook, projected onto a pig, engraved into a tree, etc, etc.

So sit back, relax, and let your mind, body and soul be emerged in what the critics are calling “the best website launched on boxing day 2012 with an orange background and a picture of Andy Enchilada in the slider”.
