Russian lawyer arrested

Russian lawyer arrested

A Russian lawyer, Dimitri Talantov, who has been defending a journalist charged with treason, has been arrested and taken away in handcuffs after posting on social media a statement about the recent Russian missile attack on a Ukrainian shopping mall: “Today's horror in Kremenchuk – is this also a part of your denazification? Or is this fascism?” We salute his courage.

Glastonbury

What a night at Glastonbury! The front screen didn’t go up at the beginning so Chris went and played keyboards upstage. Fabulous, huge crowd! Thank you to Olly Alexander for joining us, also to our brilliant band, dancers and creative crew! And to Glastonbury and the BBC! xx Photo:Twitter/@Shawndrarara

Electric Ballroom

Tonight we’re playing a concert in the Electric Ballroom in Camden Town to aid grassroots music venues. I can remember us going to the same venue in 1984 to see this historic benefit gig by Bronski Beat for the families of striking miners, later immortalised in the film, “Pride”. Neil x

Electric Ballroom

Our one-off show at the Electric Ballroom in Camden is just over a week away and the exclusive tee shirt, designed by Farrow, is now in production! More info about the show at the link below.

Alexei Navalny

Like many people, we are concerned about the safety of Alexei Navalny, the courageous Russian opposition leader, who survived being poisoned by Russia’s fascist regime and was then imprisoned on trumped-up charges. He is believed to have been recently moved to a remote prison colony.

Stockholm

We arrived in stunning Stockholm yesterday. See you at the show tonight?

Russians against the war

Russians against the war

Encouraging to see Russians around the world protesting against their fascist government and its delusional leader (who now compares himself to Peter the Great) on yesterday’s “Russia Day”.

Berlin

Thank you, Berlin! (Photo: Twitter/@gonch145)
