The Leadmill Presents: Danny Goffey


Drummer, songwriter and all round indie legend, Danny Goffey, is rock n roll royalty, and he is back with the brand new LP, “Schtick” and a non-stop, week-long tour of the UK, “Schtick Gigs in Scheven Days.”

Perhaps best known for being the drummer and one of the main songwriters in the indie legends band, Supergrass, with whom he penned such hits as ‘Alright’ and ‘Caught by the fuzz’, Danny has been writing and recording since the age of nine and whilst creating and featuring in several bands between then and now, he has clocked up well over 2,000,000 album sales.

Since Supergrass split in 2010 after seventeen years and seven albums, Danny has been the archetypal rock ’n’ roll drifter. “I tried a few things, I tried cooking… I was bored,” he says. But his itchy fretboard fingers never deserted him and, whilst at a local comedy gig in 2014, he ran into an old Supergrass fan who happened to own the Distiller Studio and the associated record label. “It turned out it was this amazing state of the art studio with Frank Sinatra’s old desk in it and some amazing equipment,” Danny enthuses. “I just started doing some demos with no real reason. That was the start of Vangoffey.” The following year, the debut solo album was released to much critical acclaim.

Buoyed by the success and reaction to his new album, Danny started writing for his second LP immediately but, for the very first time, under his own name. Released in June and again, to much critical acclaim, Schtick, has been likened to Ian Dury meets Talking Heads with smatterings of Bolan, Bowie and Costello thrown in the mix. With no subject matter off limits – Danny brings the naughty nineties back to the forefront in 2018 and takes to the roads once again for a super intimate run of very special shows.

Saturday 17th // 7:30pm

This is your future. Put down the weapons. Unite. And colonise space.

Monday 19th // 7pm
Funzing Talks: Pablo Escobar – The Real Story

After 2 Seasons of the cult series on Netflix “Narcos”, Shaun Attwood – an author, activist and public speaker – will be presenting the mind-blowing true story of Pablo Escobar and the Medellín Cartel beyond their portrayal on Netflix.

Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar was a devoted family man and a psychopathic killer; a terrible enemy, yet a wonderful friend. While donating millions to the poor, he bombed and tortured his enemies – some had their eyeballs removed with hot spoons. Through ruthless cunning and America’s insatiable appetite for cocaine, he became a multi-billionaire, who lived in a $100-million house with its own zoo.

Shaun’s story of rave parties and Ecstasy distribution was featured worldwide on National Geographic Channel’s Banged Up Abroad. Shaun spent the last several years writing a War on Drugs trilogy. The first installment, Pablo Escobar: Beyond Narcos has stormed the Amazon charts and become an immediate bestseller. It demolishes the standard good versus evil telling of Pablo’s story. The authorities were not hunting Pablo down to stop his cocaine business. They were taking over it.

Wednesday 21st // 6pm

Vote 100: Born a Rebel, Sheffield
Afternoon £2/3 // Evening £3/5 // All day £5/7

Join us for a day-long celebration of the centenary of women’s suffrage, with films, live music, discussions, poetry, and food
Plus: Free workshops for crafty children

We found that there were just too many amazing women in the North of England to contain in just one event. So, we at Cinema For All have put together both an afternoon and an evening event to mark 100 years of women at the ballot box. You’re welcome to come along to either, or both, and to stick around in-between for coffee and crafting.

Afternoon event: 14:00 – 17:00

“What are your demands?”

This is the question being posed to our panellists on 24 November as we all settle down to a tea party, suffragette-style: which is to say, in front of a panel of fascinating women.

Namely: Dani Abulhawa (Sheffield Hallam University), Gail Gibbons (Sheffield Futures), Annalisa Toccara (Our Mel), Clare Midgley (Sheffield Hallam Uni), and chair Auriel Majumdar (Sheffield Hallam University)

And it’s also the question we’ll be asking YOU, as we open up the discussion, eat some cake (provided by the lovely Homemade) and get this world put to rights.

The discussion will be kick-started by a screening of a new short film, commissioned from the Yorkshire, North east and North West Film Archives, made up of archive material of women in British public life over the past 100 years.

Children’s workshop
During the discussion, we will be teaming up with Girl Gang Sheffield to host a crafty workshop inspired by the Suffragettes.

Evening event: 19:00 – 00:00

In the evening, you’ll have a chance again to watch our Vote 100: Born a Rebel film, as well as a selection of other short films made by brilliant women.

Plus, a free snack box from Fancy an Indian will keep you going through our line-up of fantastic lay-deez:

– Kate Dossett, professor at the University of Leeds, will speak about her fascinating Feminist Archives project: https://bit.ly/2P5RX3z

– Tchiyiwe Chihana, a local poet, will drve us all to the brink of jealousy with her gift for words

– Neighbourhood Voices, an all-female local choir, will prove once and for all that covers can be better than the originals

– All Girls Arson Club will treat us to their unique brand of raucous girl pop

– Venus Dimilo, drag performer extraordinaire, will get the last few of you out of your seats

We will end the evening in the trustworthy hands of Girl Gang as they treat us to one of their world-famous (well, UK-famous maybe) DJ sets.
