STAY SICK w/Mimi & The Miseries


Brighton’s infamous delinquent trash garage punk surf beat rock ‘n’ roll dance party.

This month we’re not in our usual slot so July’s STAY SICK will be on the 13th, the second Saturday of the month.

This time round we’re bringing more Bristolian garage goodness, yep that’s right, making their STAY SICK and Brighton debut, please give it up for…



We’re super excited to have M&tM hit the Hope and know you’ll dig these ‘girls from garage’!


But don’t just take our word for it, check out this li’l snippet from Louder Than War. Hit the link to see the rest of the interview”Bristol’s Mimi and the Miseries, already turning heads on the UK garage rock circuit, release debut ‘Stop Following Me ‘Round’ taken from their first EP due late March 2022 on the uber cool This Could Prove Fatal label. Louder Than War are proud to be the first outlet anywhere in the world to premiere the video and Ged Babey talks to Mimi and Mona from the band. I knew I would love this band before I had heard a note.They come from a lineage that includes the Pleasure Seekers, the Feminine Complex, the Liverbirds, the Trashwomen, the Gore Gore Girls – the underground, under-appreciated ‘Girls In the Garage’ greats. (That’s not to mention the Mo-dettes, L7, the Bangles, Bikini Kill – the more well-known female trailblazers..)Despite the name, Mimi and The Miseries are most decidedly a band. A unit rather than a solo singer and backing group.(Mimi) Everyone is equal. When we first started it was just for fun and we only had temporary members. I was trying to come up with a name and heard Misery by the Dynamics and it just popped in my head – and the name has just stuck. But it’s not me, me, me and a backing band, it’s the four of us. Mimi & The Miseries.It’s a cool name, like Josie and the Pussycats or Goldie and the Gingerbreads. And the sound is pure Garage (Medway style) and the image – groovy Sixties (Mary Quant chic courtesy of charity-shops and the odd alteration). The attitude – is total punk rock. The song kicks back at creepy, crawling sleazebag stalker boys…”
