Preview: The Sea Slugs at Chaplin’s Cellar Bar

Due to popular demand, 11-piece afrobeat band from Southampton, The Sea Slugs, will be returning to Chaplin’s Cellar Bar on July 1.

Check out our review of their February gig here

The band will play a two-hour set of original afrobeat, filled with the heavy danceable grooves, catchy melodies and searing solos that our reviewer Dom loved so much a few month’s back.

“The Sea Slugs were a perfect fit for venue, and Chaplin’s retains the title of my favourite drinking venue in Boscombe,” he said.

Fact file

The Sea Slugs’ third album will be recorded in August 2016.

The Sea Slugs’ unique music is borne out of a collective condemnation of intolerance, a strong sense of solidarity with fellow humans, and a passion for the music of Nigerian afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. The result is a visceral, often turbulent sound with a subversive edge. The product of a wide array of musical influences and political and humanitarian motivations, The Sea Slugs’ contemporary take on Afrobeat is both potent and communicable; their sound and intent are indivisible.

The Sea Slugs will be on stage Friday July 1 at 10pm. Free entry before 10pm, £2 after.

Chaplin’s Cellar Bar, 529 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth, BH1 4AG.
