Awesome FREE Songs For Christmas!

Ho-ho-ho! (now I have a machine gun)

Christmas greetings to you all, lovely chums.  As a special Christmas treat, at our last rehearsal of the year we recorded a full version of Christmas At My House, the track we wrote and recorded in about an hour this time last year.  As before, this is an entirely FREE download, a Christmas present from us to you.  For those of you who really liked the old 'recorded on Mark's phone vibe' of the original demo, that is also still available.

What's more, during a lull in recording inspiration struck, so there is now a *brand new* Christmas song called My Time Of Year which is also available FREE of charge.  No promises that we will write another new Christmas song next year, mind....

If you like these tunes or anything we have produced please do pass on the links to friends and family.  Thanks to everyone who came to see us in 2013, we will be back very soon with more gigs in 2014.  A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you and yours.

Live Acoustic at The Abbey - Tuesday 3 December 2013

Huge thanks and love to all who came along to our gig at The Water Rats.  We had a brilliant time, big love to you all.

We will be sneaking in another show before the end of the year - we'll be playing LIVE and in person at The Abbey, Kentish Town on Tuesday 3 December 2013.  Entry to this show is FREE - yes, free!  An early Christmas present from us to you.

This is a gig with a difference - our Paul will be on his honeymoon at the time so this will be an all acoustic affair.  There will be banjo, there will be mandolin, there may be nudity* - who knows what could happen!

Please click here for a map of the venue - nearest tube is Kentish Town.

* "May" = there will be no nudity.

VENUE CHANGE!! Fri 26th April gig now at The Unbderbelly - all tickets still valid!

Some very important news!  Due to events completely beyond our control (i.e. the venue and promoter have dropped a clanger somewhere along the line) the venue for this Friday's gig has been changed. The show will now take place at The Hoxton Underbelly, Hoxton Square, N1 6NU.  We will be onstage around 8:00pm.

Please click here for a map. The nearest tube is Old Street.

The bill is still exactly the same and ALL previously purchased tickets are still valid.  So if you have a ticket which says 'Water Rats' on it, don't worry, it will still get you in at the Underbelly. We can only apologise for any inconvenience this change may cause.

Please click here to buy advance tickets for the show - only £8 (£10 on the door).

Take care and see you at the show,

Live at The Water Rats - Fri 26 April 2013

All of our discount tickets for this gig have now SOLD OUT. However, you can still get in for the reduced price of £8 by booking in advance online.  Please click here for advance tickets.

The Ragged Flags
are very pleased to announce that they will be playing the legendary Water Rats in Kings Cross on Friday 26th April 2013.

The show will be in support of the fantastic Wooden Wand, all the way from the U-S-of-A, and the superb Ryan Koriya. This really is a superb bill and will be a great night out.

Tickets are £10 on the door - HOWEVER!! - the Flags have sorted a special discount deal whereby our supporters can get in for just £7. This is a bit of a bargain to see such awesome bands.

To take advantage of this awesome deal, you must buy your ticket personally from a member of the band. If you happen to work, live with, or be stalking one of us, then that should be easy - just come up and ask!  We will be happy to help as many as possible to get in at the lower price.

If you can't physically lay your hands on a Ragged Flag but still want to come, then drop us an email at or on Facebook and reserve tickets from us. However, the number of discount tickets we have is limited, so if you reserve some from us please ensure that you can make it to the gig, so as not to disadvantage others.

Take care all, hope to see you at the show!

Friday 15th also happens to be a band member's birthday, so do join us to raise a glass or two (or six, or eight).

Merry Christmas - with a BRAND NEW SONG!

Season's greetings everyone!

As a special Christmas present from us to you, at rehearsal last night we cooked up a little tune entitled 'Christmas At My House'. This was only a quick recording on a phone but hopefully it'll get you in the festive spirit! It's available as an absolutely FREE download.

Thanks again for all your support over the last several months, you have been epic. Have a brilliant Christmas and New Year and we'll be back with more gigs and more tunes in 2013.

Huge thanks and love to everyone who came along to the show at the Wilmington last night. You were all superb, we had a blast. Great fun to play an extended set with a special encore cover to boot. Thanks also to the excellent Roisin McNeill for supporting. 

We also debuted two brand new tunes - you can check out one of them via the video clip below. Cheers to Kim from One Man Melt for having us on.
