The Wonky Pop Halloween party will be a very special affair, not least because there will be a £100 prize for the best fancy dresser. With four very hot acts this night will be a taster of what is to come in 2009's music industry. It is an example of what's great about new music right now and each band comfortably slots into the Wonky Pop ethos.
Wonky Pop is a celebration of all that is warped and pleasingly eccentric in modern pop music. Like the days of Madonna and Chic, credible pop music is back and pleasing the ears of even the most staunch muso. Shoreditch now gets a regular dose of skewed magic every second Thursday of the month. Expect more amazing live acts, unexpected DJs and other beautifully twisted performances guaranteed to stimulate and entertain the most jaded music lover.
Since her (still officially unreleased) dancefloor-detonating monster ‘Stuck On Repeat' (featuring Hot Chip's Joe Goddard on production duties), Little Boots has had the blogosphere spinning in circles like a runaway disco ball. ‘Beautiful and thrilling' NME gushed while reviews of the track picked up more stars than a goody-goody school prefect.
Their music is said to sound like a stretchy, goo-ey mixture of The Specials...Outkast.....Madness.....De La Soul.....Gorillaz....The Streets and Blur. At a time when musicians take music way too seriously - these boys are gonna put the fun back into listenin to tunes. To understand what KID BRITISH are all about all you have to do is see them live.
MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS
Marina and the Diamonds is the Kate Bush-esque singer/songwriter from London that has A&R men of the industry scrapping for ownership. A truly unique performer Marina will be big news in 2008, don't forget to see her at Wonky Pop first.
Recently described by FACT magazine as "the greatest live act in the country right now", Heartbreak bring their devistating, metal-tinged Italo-disco magic to Wonky Pop's Halloween party. The duo - comprised of flamboyant, Bueunos Aires born vocalist Sebastian Muravchik and production mastermind Ali Renault - are becoming steadily more and more renowned for their electrically-charged, stage invasion prone live shows, which blur the boundaries between live music and religious experience.
