  BREAKING NEWS:THE INTREPID FOX'S VIEW FROM THE BAR: PRESENT AND FUTURE...
8 April 2014

"This had nothing to do with last night...this was living and being born and coming for your fucking children in the middle of the night right in front of you...there was never a yesterday...From then on, rock 'n roll could never be anything less to me. Whatever I did - whether I was writing, or playing - there was blood on the pages, there was blood on the strings, because anything less than that was just bullshit, and a waste of fucking time."
Scott Kempner (former guitarist of the Dictators)


"But an idea, a value, a mere spark; always survives..."

"The mind does interesting things under extreme stress. Hallucination, displacement, retreat...Learn to use them all, not as blind reactions to adversity, but as moves in a game..."
Richard Morgan (Altered Carbon)

Damage...

In some way we're all fucking damaged; broken.

It ain't a bad thing...Something's broken, can be fixed. Damage can be mended. Wounds can be healed...

What a fuckin' night...If you're gonna do it, do it with style...Blood, sweat, tears and rock 'n fuckin' roll...

The Intrepid Fox salutes YOU...any who came down for our last night at St Giles; any who head-banged their way into the rock 'n roll history books; the bar-divers who broke themselves on ceilings and floors; any who raised their glass to the end of another chapter in the book...you were all fuckin' fantastic, guys 'n gals...

A heartfelt thanks to all involved in a magical, quirky and unique weekend. Our loyal regulars; those who partied with us. The bands who rocked us; the dj's who rolled us. The roadies, sound-engineers, bar-staff and security: The Living Dead Crew. Those who worked tirelessly throughout the weekend, to help us through a difficult time for all. Those who lifted and carried, made sure our artwork and decorations were stored safe. Such over-whelming support. So much emotion. So much love...

Felt like...family.

So where do we go now...?

When you burn your bridges: you build new ones. When you don't like the rules where you are: you go someplace else and make up your own. It's a story repeated throughout history.

Sure, we miss Soho: the hookers and their 'johns'; the market boys; the musicians who keep the spirit of rock 'n roll a living and breathing entity; the artists who commemorate the past and present in vivid imagery; the poets who pour their souls onto the page...

But the West-End is dead to us now...

So shall we let the pit-bull off the leash? Fuck, yeah...

THE INTREPID FOX is proud to announce we are holding an "EASTER WEEKEND RESURRECTION PARTY", 18-20th April, 2014. The venue: "ARCHWAY TAVERN", (formerly known as Dusk 'til Dawn), 1 Archway Close, London, N19 3TD.

So roll up, roll up, for the 'Greatest Show on Earth'...Expect fire-breathers, snake-charmers, dwarfs 'n bearded ladies...!!! Contortionists 'n jugglers...!!! The circus is back in town, motherfuckers...and it's a big, bad, fuckin' rock 'n rolling machine...!!! But enough of that nonsense...

Friday 18th: as it was in the end, so shall it be in the beginning. The awesome FOUR WHEEL DRIVE will be playing two sets crossing over midnight...Doors open at 7pm and admission is free with 'Fox loyalty cards', 3 for all others. We close at 4am and it's gonna be fuckin' crazy, so make sure to arrive early.

Saturday 19th: in association with the crew who bring you VOODOO ROCK & PROJECT MAYHEM, we give you THE first Saturday night Rock Club of it's kind since SIN. From the ashes, club "PHOENIX RISING"...two rooms of fuckin' metal mayhem. One floor dedicated to Metal/Nu-Metal/Pop Punk; one floor playing the best in Hard-Rock, Metal 'n Punk. Admission is free for Fox regulars; for the £3 guest-list, please write your name on the events wall on Facebook. It's £5 for all others and we're open 'til 4am; what can I say...?: miss it at your peril, fuckers...

After that, I reckon Sunday 20th could well be a complete fuckin' debacle (in the nicest possible way). Come down and check out if we're all still alive; we have no plans, as yet, above fucking breathing...but, as always, Mr Punch aims to entertain...

This is the first statement on the future of The Intrepid Fox: keep checking www.intrepidfox.com, and here on Facebook, for news; we ask our many friends out there to please share.
Leaving you, as always, with the words of another...
