    Chill Pill: Christmas Special

    The Big One returns for a super-sized helping of spoken word with all the trimmings and dancing 'til late. Join the whole Chill Pill team and their festive guests, including four-piece band United Vibrations, for the biggest line up yet.  

    'Twas a bit before Christmas,

    And at the Albany Deptford,

    The poets were stirring, excited and restless,

    All presents were wrapped, acts selected with care, 

    In the hope that an audience soon would be there.


    Eat, drink and be merry!


    United Vibrations are a four-piece band based in southeast London, bringing their unique style of 12Tone, Mulatto, Afro-Punk and Jazz-fusion music, influenced by Fela Kuti and Sun Ra, to a global audience. The band consists of the Dayes brothers and Wayne Francis.


    United Vibrations have played alongside Seun Kuti, Tony Allen, Soothsayers, Electric Jalaba, Afriquoi, the Destroyers and the Resonators, as well as working with Aloe Blacc and recording at Maida Vale Studios with Gilles Peterson. Having released their debut album, ‘Galaxies Not Ghettos’ as well as ‘Ra!’, ‘No Space No Time’, ‘London Bridge’ & ‘We Never Die EP’, they are set to drop their second album in early 2014. Recently presented with the Willem Wodka 2013 Award – Grounds, Rotterdam and the Emerging Excellence Award 2013 – Help Musicians UK.
