The Motifs + The Crayon Fields, Nottingham - 25th April

Post by a layer of chips » Sun Jan 25, 2009 09:50

A layer of chips presents:

The Motifs + The Crayon Fields + Heptagons + Standard Fare

live at Sumac, 245 Gladstone Street, Nottingham NG7 6HX

on Saturday 25th April

Doors 8pm
Admission - free, but donations will be asked for!

The Motifs
The Motifs are from Melbourne (Australia, not Derbyshire) and write cute and wistful synth-acoustico-pop songs about everything from umlauts to pine cones. Most songs sneak in under the two minute mark. They sound a bit like Pipas, and that can only be good.

The Crayon Fields
Geoff O’Connor, lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of Melbourne quartet the Crayon Fields, is a myopic boy genius whose record collection consists almost solely of op-shop vinyl LPs released before 1970. Consequently, the Crayon Fields play intricate, atmospheric pop songs that recall the minor key majesty and close-knit harmonies of 60s maestros such as the Zombies, the Byrds and the Beach Boys.

Alexis just wrote to me and said they're playing in Glasgow on the 23rd, and are hoping to play more UK shows.
I'll probably go for the 5th of May here in Stockholm.

Support will come from Nottingham's newest indiepop sensations, The Hillary Clinton School For Badminton.

I think I'll come up as well, Sam. Might even buy my train tickets now just to have a popthrill to look forward to. Can I wear my hair in bunches?

We're putting the Motifs on in London at the end of April, pop fans.

How dare you? It is not a made up band at all. It's Ben Sharpe's new band.

The Soapy Bums might also be playing.

Two questions please:-

1) Are THE CRAYON FIELDS touring with them?

2) This isn't on Sunday 26th is it?

Thank you.
