Since the last time I put on my "Friends and Fellow Travellers" night so many of the people came from here I figured I'd be a damn fool not to announce this one to you all.
The fifth monthly Friends and Fellow Travellers after hosting the likes of Jeffrey Lewis, Stanley Brinks and Ish Marquez returns the day before the jolly holiday to celebrate the sucessful defeat of the supermutant water-walker Jesus Christ.
That's us! We're utterly charming.. I suppose pretentious garage rock might describe us.
Lovely Ed and his stripped-down version of the Mules roll on to the Betsey stage. You know the Mules right? A tight-skinned bunch of folk toughs that sing songs with wit and insight, just like your uncle said it used to be like in the good old days. I like Ed. He always combs back his greaser hair.
AND THE FELLOW TRAVELLER:
An exciting collective of far too clever French people, sounding like compositional jazz, combining musical invention with beautiful Franco pop harmonies. Experimental but fun. Like Boulez conducting Serge Gainsbourg. A set of drums, some masks and a bundle of keyboards and they're away!
It's at the Betsey Trotwood in Farringdon this Thursday.
