Felman is a rapper, beatmaker, and multi-instrumentalist from Brighton. Fresh off a rap battle in New York City and last year’s release of his album, Tidings, he’ll be mucking in with live production, keyboards, storytelling, humour, and lyricism. If you like your kicks wonky and your metaphors obtuse, you’re going to want to catch this one.
TIM “HOLY MOTHERS” NEWMAN
Variously referred to as dark, intricate, melancholy, and atmospheric, Tim’s acoustic offerings are soothingly maudlin. His songs have a depth of emotion fostered by a long line of failed musical projects spanning two decades and a swarm of genres: Tim’s musical pedigree is as varied as it is unsuccessful. Although each of his musical endeavours has exploded in turn, his solo acoustic efforts have meandered along in the background, gently wheezing as they stalk through the half light. On a good day, Tim’s music is a cross between an incredibly poor man’s Jeff Buckley and Dave Gahan during the heroin years.
Tim has been playing music with friends for many years. Sometimes he plays music on his own. He is inspired by Nobuo Uematsu, the BBC Radio 4 Adaptation of Lord of the Rings, and the first half of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of the Worlds, although he doesn’t sound much like any of them.
Poet Maria Cohut — lovingly known as “Coco Death” and “Morbid Maria” among her colleagues at MNT — hails from Romania, the fabled land of vampires, where there are over 40 different ways of saying, “I’m drunk”. A lover of dramatic weirdness, Maria often collaborates with her typewriter soulmate, Matilda, to put together lyrical tales of love and heartache. If you like to listen to poetry with a dark twist, that prods fresh bruises and asks one too many personal questions, then you will definitely enjoy this mettlesome act.
James McIntosh plays in bands mostly, such as Supermarket and the Red Diamond Dragon Club, but alone he is The Ombudsman! Despite his many shortcomings in guitar playing and singing, he’s not afraid to tackle the big issues. Love, loss, alienation, the longing to be a penguin rather than a human — it’s all covered. Be prepared.
On the last Saturday of every month, we go a bit goth downstairs!
Guest DJs each month, including Simon Price and Andy Lowlife, playing all gothic rock, post-punk, alternative 80s hits and darkwave.
Skeptics in the Pub is aimed at providing a community for like-minded people to meet, drink and hear some great talks from speakers from all around the country.
Entry just £3!

On the 10th March, Matt Hoss and Adele Cliff will be trying out their brand new Edinburgh Shows. This will be a Work-in-Progress show, meaning that you get to see their shows in the early stages. This means, raw jokes and amazing gems.

“I find her really annoying to watch, as I’m constantly kicking myself for not having thought of those gags first.” – Gary Delaney
Praise & Blurb for Matt’s Show HERE COMES YOUR MAN
Matt Hoss is a hopeless romantic, (with “hopeless” being the operative word). This upbeat stand-up comedy hour looks positively at Matt’s failed attempts at dating. For Matt, romance is a minefield and love is worry.
He hilariously discusses awkward sexual encounters, racist girlfriends and seducing ladies with poetry. Matt analyses the heart of break-ups, why they hurt and why it’s good to go through them. Come along and see Matt’s heart-warming tales about rejection & acceptance.
