Jamm, 261 Brixton Road, SW9 6LH, 7.30pm, FREE admission
Stars Of Aviation
Citing their influences as “English and French folk music and pop music of the 60s”, the nine piece Stars Of Aviation gently trace a line between the Ladybug Transistor and The Lucksmiths. They also feature a bassoon player and someone on violin and gongs – more gongs and bassoons in pop, say we! Their gorgeous 'Marie Et L'Accordeon' featured on 'The Kids At The Club'.
How can you not adore a group called Brontosaurus Chorus? Featuring HDIF regular and Pop-Art mastermind Scooby Dom, t'Chorus have a host of instantly lovable songs - traces of B&S, Hidden Cameras, the runaway day-glo pop of Tullycraft, and the sense that here's a band that knows how to leave you smiling.
The Rocky Nest
In their own words: "Imagine Belle and Sebastian wandering into a dodgy ’massage parlour’ to be greeted by the lovely Felicity Kendall from ’The Good Life’... but she’s dressed in Lou Reed's gimp suit and brandishing a whip. She turns to you and asks 'What services do you require?' Open mouthed and somewhat shocked you reply, 'I want it all Felicity, I want POP, FOLK, ROCK, PSYCH, TWEE, COCKROCK, THE WORKS!!! ... but I want it cheap please'." Blimey.
Honey Pine Dresser
Led by Marie-Pascale Heart, Honey Pine Dresser recall the fragile beauty of both Elliott Smith and Trembling Blue Stars.
