Hi folks and welcome back to a very flatpack version of what will become the new home of ACCRINGTON STANLEY. Apologies to all for the brief period of radio silence while we hauled our luggage aboard the new server – give us a couple of days and I’ll get a lick of paint around the new gaff.
Breaking News of course – 22nd November at the Brook, supporting Dodgy!
The team at Stanley Towers
The macabre revivification of the dessicated Stanley homunculus continues, with that super Mr. Xan Phillips of VOICE FM (103.9FM). Following a broadcasted Stanleys snippet of yesteryear and a “whatever happened to them?” query, some public-spirited citizens put the station right. Tune in today (12 may) at 5.45 or thereabouts, for it is rumoured that the Indie Rock legends will be making a brief appearance. Exept you won’t see them because they’re on the radio. Which is probably a good thing, You should see the state of Baz these days.
Monster thanks to all who made Thursday’s Fishy Night such so blinkin’ tremendous. Cheers to Those fabulous Spiraltones, Old Culture, Martin at the ‘Heads and everyone who came out to see us!
A new dawn, a new day, a new website with stuff pertaining to that legendary rock Hippo of yore ACCRINGTON STANLEY. This time, Reverb Nation oscillates to the vibrations of some lively little numbers from the AccyStans’ oeuvre of old. And New, in fact. Keep it bookmarked, we may well be witnessing those cheeky Stans paving the way for some new material one of these days…
Check it out while it’s still on the iPlayer – Mr. Dan O’ the Farrell in a friendly chinwag with the British Broadcasting Corporation. Ah – just like old times…

Distracting conveniently from the Leveson Inquiry, Revelation of the Week concerns the vinyl collection of St John of the Peel; in particular, the evidence of NOT ONE, BUT TWO Accrington Stanley albums! Includes the handwritten message from a younger and wiser Dan O’ Farrell politely asking Lord Ravenscroft for a spin on the crackly roundabout of destiny. For which he duly obliged. Glasses raised!
Reach for the Sky…
Once again those cheeky SOFA CITY riders burst through the saloon doors of the BITTERNE PARK HOTEL, with a killer line-up to rock the gentlefolk of Midanbury. FLYING ALEXANDERS? SPIRALTONES? ACCRINGTON STANLEY? Sheriff you are spoiling us..
