Flameproof Moth's audience at the South Bank ....In his former incarnation as The Boycott Coca Cola Experience, the Moth was one of the very first people to appear at the Goose, supporting The Woodentops  way back in May 2008.

Known in the real world as Tim Siddall, Flameproof Moth sings caustic, funny, surreal and mundane songs and has been described as “Mark E Smith meets Jake Thackray”.

Siddall has got something to say and he says it with wit and warmth whilst grappling with a demonic Mississippi-via-Peckham guitar, it says here, and who are we to quibble with that?

We were delighted to have him come back to the Goose in 2011, supporting John Otway when he first appeared at The Ivy House!

In the Summer of 2013 we were astonished while walking along the South Bank to unexpectedly find him singing by the side of the Thames as the tide came in …… see the pictures above …. and the youtube clip below …….
