Sheffo 08/03 - English Singles/Sweet Nothings/Calculus

Post by Dan Pop-o-matic » Sun Jan 20, 2013 18:30

Macho Music Is Stupid is a new(ish) indiepop night in Sheffield that mixes live bands and top notch dj-ing. Playing at the inaugural event we have:

English Singles

All the way from Sacramento with jagged guitars and exhilarating pop melodies.

"Guitars are crisp, drums rattle and the melodies scream "pop" in such a wide-eyed and homemade way they they could never really rub shoulders with any kind of mainstream" - Sounds XP

The Sweet Nothings

Super awesome amazing indiepop from Sheffield. They've been played on 6Music you know.

"The swagger of the Rolling Stones dressed as Pavement... A clusterfuck of comedy and resentment" - Counterfeit

C Is For Calculus

Excitable, instrument swapping post punky art rockers.

Afterwards the MMIS djs will play the best indiepop, janglepop, powerpop and tweepop until the venue gets fed up with us and tells us sling our hooks.

£3 on the door, starts at 8pm on Friday 8th March at the Redhouse.

Here is a Facebook event where you can look at the lovely poster Mel did for us. I'd post it on here but Anorak won't let me.

tonieee! I'd totally missed the return of MMIS. Amazing! Are you and Dan doing it regularly or just whenever there are bands to put on? I'm so happy.

Just whenever there are bands to put on. Dan is carrying on doing Pop-O-Matic as a regular night but as a disco only in a different venue. I'm really looking forward to DJing again - it's been years since the last one and there are so many ace new records to play!

This week yo! English Singles are amazing live, as anyone who saw them tear the Grosvenor a new pop hole on Friday can testify. This'll be good I reckon.

Hey, sorry to spam or jag or whatever, but I'm making some adorably/pitifully (delete as appropriate) lofi C Is For Calculus EPs to sell at this and the next gig. Two pounds for four songs for nine minutes. It's ok if you like that sort of thing. No art or sleeve or owt, but the CD has a pelican on it.

Dammit...12 hours with one of those headaches that roams around from your neck to your eyebrows and makes you feel sick means I had to sit on the sofa whimpering rather than watching the indie pop. Hope it was ace and looking forward to the Hadfield. The Hadfield! Not even a bus ride away!
