One Happy Island + The Wendy Darlings + OPS. Nottm 09/05

Post by indiehorse » Tue May 06, 2014 09:46

Hmmm, I don't seem to have made a thread for this. Odd.

Anorak Nottingham + A Fog of Ideas presents...

Image

ONE HAPPY ISLAND (Boston, USA)
http://www.onehappyislandmusic.com/

"One Happy Island comes out of Boston, MA and lists Cub, The Monkees, The Beach Boys, Squeeze, and The Everly Brothers as being among their influences, which is basically like a recipe for winning me over... A delicate balance of happy, childlike songs & more sophisticated ones." - Side Ponytail


THE WENDY DARLINGS (Clermont-Ferrand, France)
http://thewendydarlings.bandcamp.com/

"They have a fresh twee-pop indie sound that's slightly lo-fi and definitely has traces of Bratmobile, Breeders and the Vaselines as influences. I love crunchy guitars and bouncey melodic songs that make you want to nod your head and hop up and down." - Teenage Dogs in Trouble


OKINAWA PICTURE SHOW (Birmingham)
http://okinawapictureshow.bandcamp.com/

Elly Kingdon and Paul Ace Bush play acoustic pop punk whilst being cute and staring lovingly at each other

£5 ont door

THAT'S THIS FRIDAY PEOPLE. Last show of the tour, I believe.

Wendy D's and One Happy Island were superb in Birmingham yesterday.

Ditto from Glasgow. The Wendys are the most fun ever!

Well, I'll be there... this is likely to be my second to last turn as a co-promoter (the last being fever dream/cosines next week) outside the alldayer/pre-indietracks show/s... and I have no plans to do any sole promoter shows again... that is, unless, this gig and the next one change my mind... two shows, two great line-ups, I hope I feel a bit differently after...

I want to come top this so much. One Happy Island were so good tonight in Sheffield and the Wendy D's and OPS's are both amazing. Tonight I will pray to all the dieties of indiepop to ensure it will be so.

Me too! But I forgot to pray to the indiepop deities before I said it out loud, and my hubris was punished and I spent the rest of the day in A&E. Hope you get there, tonieeepops. It'll be dreamy! x

Bobby Darin would've approved! OPS played unmic'd on the floor, the Wendys were triple-rocking-super and One Happy Island were at their most charming, tender and kind of wired. Shannon even managed a proper rock n roll fall on stage and a casual sling away of the plectrum in disgust. It was wild, man! That was their last gig too apparently. Sob sob......
It's so easy when the door is wide open.

Amazing show.

We've now landed down under, feeling surprisingly chipper.

relieved to hear you got there, trev, I knew char would but, the state of you on friday, I was doubtful

felt so bad to leave before one happy island- and to discover it may be their final show- that I had an actual nightmare that night where the band asked me to introduce them on stage, explain who they were, how long they'd been together, etc and I found myself unable to recall anything, not even the band's name... actually woke myself (and h) up muttering desperately 'I don't know who you are'
