On Saturday 22nd November, in Nottingham…
HELLO THOR AND THE MUSIC EXCHANGE PRESENT:
An evening of swish pop bangers
CANTALOUPE (Hello Thor, Nottingham)
A rare live outing and only their second Nottingham show this year. Experimental pop for middle aged public servants. Kosmische synths and tidy grooves tied together by playfulness and wonder. They’ll be playing a bunch of new stuff from their forthcoming debut album.
FISTS (Hello Thor, Nottingham)
Fists have all but disappeared from Nottingham’s live music scene over the last year, leaving a void that none can fill. Calling them an exceptional indie rock band would be accurate but sounds far less inspiring than their live performances are. Bits of garage and rockabilly and 90s US lo-fi, sure, but really Fists are just Fists. Thank fuck they’re back.
COWTOWN (Audacious Art Experiment, Leeds)
Post-punk/electro-pop joy. Talking Heads without the art school wankery; Devo but focussed entirely on dizzyingly good vibes. The most party band since the B52s. PARTY.
