The emergence of Nottingham-based The-Wireless-Stores sees the return of ex-Bivouac frontman Paul Yeadon. The band formed in June 2002, and thus far the band have one EP to their name, the oddly named "Historic Sites Of Scenic Beauty" - a name taken from the Korean Tourist Board's tagline for their national places of interest. It's an odd but appealing mixture of a record, placing turbo-charged early Feeder/Foos-esque alt-rock alongside emo-tinged acoustic fireside anthems that inspire comparisons with Brand New. Even this early on however, they've collaborated with quirky songstress Scout Nibblet and Six By Seven's J T Flower.
A summer 03 show at the Garage with the much-loved Weakerthans has set them in good stead to steal a few hearts within the UK alternative scene; they'll also be playing at the Verge in Kentish Town on Sunday 28th September as part of an alldayer with In At The Deep End labelmates Steel Rules Die, November Coming Fire and The Killerest Expression among others.
