Three Cheers Saturday Photo Club (Season 1)

Get snapping your Kodaks! 

It's the first-ever Three Cheers Saturday Photo Club, which took place on 30th January, 2021.

The themes were: 
1. Odd Condiments
2. Drearyiness

As founder of the club, Steve got to share his favourite contributions from the Dreary Condiment category.

Steve's speech in full: 

Thank you Tom. Being rather new to this role I have noted down what judges on TV talent shows do so I just want to say you fully deserve to be in this competition, you nailed it and good job!

Right, strange homebaking lady and I have carefully considered the entries.

The best condiment pic goes to Tom’s condiment shoe racing. A fine and powerful work that is playful in intent yet subtle in executing. Execution.

The best dreary pic goes to John’s curtain stain. A homage to grubbiness, dreariness and the utter shiteness of lockdown.

There is a special judge’s merit award for Tony’s ventriloquist dummy pic which although neither dreary or condiment themed had the best backstory.

Well done my loves.

WINNER, Condiment Category

Condiment Shoe Racing by Tom

Artist's comment: "Yellow sauce winning the race for Team La France."

WINNER, Dreariness Category

Curtain Stain by John

Judge's comment: "Curtain Stain is an evocative work that transcends both extreme dreariness and thoughts of unusual condiments. A powerful and disturbing piece."

Artist's comment: "An unexpected and overwhelming honour. I would like to thank my draper for making this possible..."


Harry the Flash (aka Mr Parlanchin) by Tony 

Artist's comment: "When I was small, I thought I was in The Professionals or The Sweeney. If things ever got dreary, I would take out my ventriloquist dummy friend 'Mr Parlanchin', and scare the shit out of my tiny mates... things weren't so dreary then. My dad eventually bought another two Mr Parlanchins and then custom made costumes, hair etc to make a Charlie Chaplin dummy and a Hitler dummy (both from The Great Dictator) and so I had to live with Flash Harry, Chaplin and Adolf Hitler."

Condiment du Moment by Phil 

Comment by the artist: "A delicious and gently soothing square of Nicorette. It really does put a lovely light and airy spin on the day. In fact I’m speedballing a double 2mg wad this very moment."

Road condiment by Steve 

Inspired the following exchange: 
Phil thought it was a Kit Kat. Tom wasn't convinced. 
Phil U-turned. "I think you’re right. There is a Heinz ketchup sachet peeping out bottom right. Zoom in and it looks more like a squashed chip wrapper."
Tom submitted that the white flecks would indicate fish?
Or testicle meat, volunteered John. 
With a warning from Tom for everyone to check their knickers, the debate ended.

Under the Artex Sky video album

The House of Three Cheers has collaborated with The Original Beekeepers to create a video album of music and visuals.  The album consists mainly of 'lockdown songs' and is on the experimental/ambient side. Given three words to describe it, the creators chose these six:  1. lockdown 2. overload 3. paranoia 4. distractions 5. travel  6. dreams.   The videos, created by the House of Three Cheers, include ambient mashups, black and white TV static glitch-fests, and various forms of animation including stop-motion and drawn animation.  Listen and watch here:  Under the Artex Sky The album will be available from net label BS,BTA ( be sweet, but take action ) at their bandcamp site: Visit for more Original Beekeeping! 

New booklet launch. Three Cheers!

Like all decent pockets, our new booklet is a portable repository of poetic sweeties, scrunched up stories, a wad of drawings, and other intriguing detritus and fluff.  The idea was to publish and distribute the issue on POEM IN YOUR POCKET DAY, April 28th, but distribution will now be some time next week due to factors beyond our control, beneath our understanding and not worth discussing.  In the meantime, enjoy some digital highlights and share your thoughts with us using the comments below!   

Boogie Boardin' by the Original Beekeepers

Song recorded way back when, released as a summer single just in time for the end of summer, filmed in Sunny Stoke Newington, starring 'Man-About-Town-Extraordinaire' Mr Tony Rich, and a cast of... local friends, shopkeepers, cafe owners, artists, students, designers, and the coolest postman in town.  Get yer board shorts on and grab the nearest wave... or at least a beer.  With love from the Original Beekeepers and the House of Three Cheers.   @everydaysunshineshop  @theparlourbistro  Download the single for free at:  #surfing #hipstersurfing #stokenewington #postmen
