Oxjam Beeston Takeover - 2017

Anteloup had a corking time at the Oxjam Beeston Takeover this year, bringing their unique style to The Crown Inn, Beeston.


Enjoying an earlier, daytime slot, the outdoor area soon filled up as the band kicked off with old favourite "A Little Bit Like Kiss Me," along with the inspirational "Today," as well as new song "It's A Shame." Some brand new material was also aired; the dreamy "New Morning" and re-worked "Nothing Stays The Same" both being well-received by ever-growing crowd.

The band always enjoy Oxjam and are happy to play at whatever time best suits the organisers. They were especially happy this year, as the early slot meant they could enjoy the rest of the music on offer. As well as a pint or two..!

Set List (Almost) Confirmed

The band are really gearing up for the Oxjam Beeston Takeover on 14th October, and have been re-working and drilling the set-list, but not without a little bit of head-scratching....

"We're a bit torn between 'Jodie' and 'We've All Been There' as a finale," explains Luis. "We really want a diverse set, that shows the range of our material, while also ensuring we hit at least one genre that everyone will like. Both Jodie and We've All Been There are more rocky numbers, with great endings that ensure we finish with a bang. Jodie is really popular and gets a great response, but we've also re-worked We've All Been There, which now has a lot more dynamic to it and a smasher of an ending. We're already committed to the other songs, so can only do one or the other. We're running them both in our practice sessions, but still can't decide which..."

It seems that the only way we'll find out what the decision is is to head along to The Crown, Beeston on the 14th October and watch the gig!

The band have confirmed the following, just to whet our appetites: Today, It's A Shame, New Morning, Nothing Stays The Same, Frozen Turkey...... Watch this space for further set list details.
