It's kicking off in Bright
Well, I bought a ticket to see Death From Above 1979 in February today. I mean, £6 isn't to be turned down, is it? Especially when Controller. Controller are going to to be joining them. Yes, that is correct, Controller. Controller WILL be playing with DFA79... 2005 is already looking good, and the Canadians are are coming to show us how it should be done. Then again, the last time I went to a show in Nottingham at the Rescue Rooms there were more people interested in The Zutons than Hot Snakes. Still, there was a nice turn out at the Hot Snakes gig, and The Futureheads were supporting The Zutons, and I can understand the interest in them.
Anyway, back to Brighton. First there was The Go! Team and now they've brought us The Pipettes. What the hell is going on over there? I heard about this band whilst under the influence of the Plan B Magazine - It's been happening a lot more lately - but i'm glad I did. I don't like the Belle and Sebastian comparisons, but it is "twee pop" but with a difference. This all girl trio are RiotBecki, Rose, and Julia, and have recently been making waves in the live circuit for their live shows: matching uniforms, bad dancing and synchronised hand movements. Intrigued? I was. They like Phil Spector (his music/ production), and have some great pop songs.
There isn't an album out yet, but they're are some MP3's avaliable to satisfy your interest for the time being. They're breaking out of Brighton right now, and if you get the chance, try to catch one of their following shows:
Oh, and you can't be bothered to search google yourself then by all means:
