Cassetteboy to play LEAF Liverpool 3rd Birthday

Tweet your musical requests to @Cassetteboy 

Saturday 23rd November

at LEAF on Bold Street, Liverpool / First Floor / £10 / Doors 10pm 

Cassetteboy’s hilarious YouTube videos have mashed-up everyone from Alan Sugar to Harry Potter, and have been watched over 20 million times. Now they’ve teamed up with DJ Rubbish, freestyle rapper and Peckham’s biggest idiot, to create an unforgettable night. To celebrate LEAF on Bold Street’s 3rd Birthday, the cut ‘n paste maestro will get behind the decks for a stomping performance on Liverpool soil. Part comedy club, part disco, all party, this will be the only night in town that plays Madonna and MasterChef, 50 Cent and Jeremy Paxman. Plus with prizes, swearing, stupidity and maybe 1 too many LEAF birthday cocktails, this will be a night to remember. Tweet your musical requests to @Cassetteboy (remember to tell him which night you’re coming). 

Cassetteboy are a cut 'n' paste duo from Chelmsford, Essex. They re-edit footage of TV shows to make celebrities talk about sex and drugs, and are somehow making a career of it. They released five albums in the early 2000s, including The Parker Tapes, which received a mark of 8.7 on Pitchfork, if that's important. They have toured extensively, playing in the USA, Canada, Greece, Poland and Colchester. They also perform at Glastonbury every year. 2012 was a bit rubbish because the festival wasn't on, so their show just confused a bunch of cows.

Cassetteboy are best known for their YouTube videos. Their smash hit The Bloody Apprentice, in which Alan Sugar talks about sh*tting frying pans, has been watched four and a half million times. They have also tackled David Cameron, Downton Abbey, Harry Potter, and The Only Way is Essex. A recent video in which Prince Andrew described the Queen's org*sms was banned by the BBC. Cassetteboy have 60,000 YouTube subscribers and 19,000,000 total video views.

Their work has been featured on Radio One and regularly appears on Rude Tube. They enjoy long walks in the country and have kind eyes.

2013 sees the launch of 'Cassetteboy vs DJ Rubbish' off the back of their hugely successful Edinburgh Fringe show.
