4 OR 5 MAGICIANS
Brighton outfit, beloved by Lamacq and Huw Stephens, who parade a very English alt-rock version of the GBV/Pavement/Sebadoh/Replacements canon. Touring their debut album Empty, Derivative Pop Songs, of which it has been said: "You might well have discovered a new band that could be your life" (Irish Times) "Beyond the cracking choruses, it’s this acerbic wit that makes 4 or 5 Magicians an essential listen" (BBC) "Fierce intelligence, a good sense of humour, and massive dollops of irony ... Creative genius" (Rocksound)
Janglesome Postcard Records-meets-Pavement Derby dwellers promoting recent debut album Pantomime Hearse, recent support of the Twilight Sad, Brakes and Sky Larkin
ACE BUSHY STRIPTEASE
