  THE INTREPID FOX ISSUES STATEMENT ABOUT IMMINENT CLOSURE
24 February 2014

intrepid fox

Rock and Metal venue The Intrepid Fox has been served notice to leave its premises on 1st April 2014 to make way for the new Crossrail and residential developments.

This will be the second time the revered institution has moved following setting up camp in 2006 in the current location on St Giles High St after the previous home in Wardour St.

A statement has been made on the venue's Facebook page and it is clear that this will be no moonlight flit, but a party that promises to go out with a bang. There is no news yet on where the third chapter will take place...

Article continues below...

   

The statement read:

"There are those who have a moral objection to hunting and who are fundamentally opposed to the idea of people gaining pleasure from what they regard as the causing of unnecessary suffering. There are also those who perceive hunting as representing a divisive social class system..."

The Burns Inquiry. (December 1999).

The fox is undoubtedly a creature of contradiction. Most at home in the wild but fearless to venture into the city: capable of resilient adaptation to different habitats. Never a pack animal, following the herd, but highly social and loyal within the family group. Virtually incapable of taming or being kept as a pet. Capable of savagery towards the weaker prey for food and used by humans to control pests, for that very attribute. In the same breath, labelled a "pest" itself and slaughtered viciously by a supposedly civilised society from the 16th century to the present. Since the "Hunting Ban" of 2004, many have purportedly claimed that MORE foxes have been "disposed of". How can that be we ask? Simple...just don't use a hound to chase down and corner the animal, but still hack off it's feet, tail and head and discard the carcass. Of course not before smearing it's blood over the face of a child who'd probably never seen ANY kind of death up close before. Use a hawk or kestrel to pin the fox and slash it to pieces instead. Or just shoot the fucker. Nothing wrong with that. Really?

Persecution, cruelty for fun, hypocricy, lies, child trauma ... all admirable values that the "gentlemen" in the ridiculous red costumes still export to the rest of the world. But the "ladies" get to wear coloured collars on their black coats to help them "stand out from the rest of the field". God forbid they're mistaken for being "foxy" and blown away by some stupid, fat fuck with an antique Purdy. Gimme a gun, and I'll fuckin' show you how to hunt "pests".

The fox: a creature loved by many, reviled by some. Accused of outrageous stories of mauling babies in cradles, invading homes and causing chaos. Revered by some as the archetypal symbol of cunning and trickery.

But most interesting of all regarded in some folklore as a familiar animal possessed of magical powers.

Do you believe in magic? Do you believe a "magician" can somehow transport himself between two locations, seemingly effortlessly? Or is it all merely an illusion? As with all closely guarded secrets a certain amount of mis-direction is essential. But isn't it SO much more exciting when you finally know the truth? All that is needed is a little faith, a little trust that you're not being fooled, but rather entertained.

We are approaching the final month of our time here on St Giles High St. We have a line-up of entertainment for March to blow you away: check out the calendar at www.intrepidfox.com and come down and party with us to bid farewell to our home of the last seven years. We promise you that this area will never see the like again. Anyone who wants to be a part of rock n roll history: don't miss it. Anyone who believes in individuality and creativity, opposed to grey tower blocks: don't miss it. Anyone who's passionate about the alternative community: don't miss it. And who knows; you may see a little magic...

The Intrepid Fox is being evicted from its home for the second time on the 1st April, 2014. Watch this space for news of the third chapter in the tumultuous history of the Fox...the story is never finished, the future is still unwritten...
