lovely stuff. anyone seen them supporting the equally fantastic David Thomas Broughton over the past couple weeks?
Supportin AU at Cafe Oto, wasn't blown away by them but certainly a good band and enjoyed it!
they made me very happy. reminded me of shugo tokumaru, or maybe porcupine twee
although they only really had one song.
three of the five they played last night seemed to be based around the same riff
From an email I sent last night:
The support band tonight were called something like 'Twit, the hapless pencil'. Their songs sounded like the soundtrack to pixies and elves gambolling through meadows, occasionally being chased by trolls and spectres. They were pish, although I was kept amused by the wettest, feyest, twee-est (?) crowd ever. And I've seen Tunng. There was a guy at the front sitting cross-legged, with a goatee and an Oliver Twist cap, drawing sketches of the band as they played.
BUT YOU'RE NOT
supporting she keeps bees.
They were ok, not sensational, but pretty nice.
In fact, my thoughts on them are here: http://www.thelineofbestfit.com/2009/09/she-keeps-bees-%E2%80%93-the-wilmington-arms-london-100909/
they sounded like if Os Mutantes did a collaboration with Fennesz
it sounds how i described it dammit
Can suck my heroic balls as well!
