Post by Pop Kid » Mon Jun 28, 2010 6:00 pm

Hello.

SPIRAL SCRATCH PRSENTS:

THE CANNANES
Sarandon
Humousexual

So! This Friday 2 July we are very very happy to welcome Australian indiepop gods, The Cannanes (http://www.cannanes.com). They are playing with Sarandon (http://sarandon.net) and Humousexual (http://www.everardrecords.com/humousexual) and it'll be their first and only London show in 10 years, so you must come. You can't miss it! Three fantastic bands for £5. About two thirds of the tickets have gone already and the Betsey is only small so please buy your ticket in advance, if you can.

Here is some stuff you need to know:

Venue: downstairs at the Betsey Trotwood (56 Farringdon Road, London EC1R 3BL - http://www.thebetsey.com) / Map: http://tinyurl.com/cflg68
Doors 8pm - first band on stage 8:30pm
Tickets: £5 advance from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/76538

I didn't realize The Cannanes hadn't been here in over in 10 years! Wow. It's put into perspective how special their long N. America-wide tour was 2 years ago (which must have seen them do about 20+ shows over 2 months). You do get the special acts, Spiral Scratch. :-)

love the relaxed approach to touring: exist for 15 years before playing in europe at all, play five uk shows, wait 11 years, then play four more. no reason to think they won't still be doing their thing in 2020 so i'm sure they'll be back again :-)

currently trying to decide whether to go to see the cannanes in newcastle (which involves a screening of the cannanes documentary) or at indietracks.

If they do 'Vivienne' I might cry, thinking of New York back in June '08.

I can't make this and I'm a bit peeved:

1. It's the Cannanes
2. A pub called Betsey Trotwood
3. Humousexual reminds me (in name only) of my revered DP Le Odd

I'm sure things will amble on without my presence.

Smiles,

There's no disco planned for after the popshow, simply because it'll be way too hot to stay downstairs and dance (and I might cry if no-one's there when I play First Base). Sorry!

I've taken the tickets off sale now but there will be a handful on the door, if anyone fancies it. See you all tonight. Get there early, if you can, to see Humousexual - they are brilliant.

I was going to add, '(that is, if we're not too sweaty!)' but decided not to as I've complained enough about lack of air conditioning in British clubs and other establishments! Aww, understandable. It's just that you all are the best indiepop DJs in London. I'll miss it.

nearly cried during the cannanes' set. i'd sort of expected/hoped for a greatest hits selection, but it ended up being much more satisfying to get mostly new stuff rather than an exercise in nostalgia (it made me happy that they revisit a line from "we drink bitter" on one of the new ones, though). so great. wish i was going to nottingham tonight.

Daniel! What was the name of the song that they played for you?

I was feeling very emotional too from the beginning of their set; the quiet and touching beauty of Frances's voice and Stephen's guitar. And then when the Sarandon fellas joined them (AWESOME bass playing!), they were still the Cannanes but with more rhythm and amps. I loved both versions! I too would love to go to Nottinham tonight and should probably have planned to get up there in advance, knowing how I felt after their New York show. But I'm grateful they'll be at Indietracks.

The only thing I can say is: I wished this happened daily!
I could stand there every night listening to that voice and that beautiful guitar.
And I wasn't even a Cannanes fan before last night!

Thanks a lot also to the Sarandon and Humousexual guys for making last night's show a really great one!
