HAPPY ACCIDENTS AND THE JOYS OF NOT BEING OVER SERIOUS

Hailing from London, where if you’re a resident there’s a good chance you have a floppy haired indie pop quartet living in your trouser pocket, Happy Accidents are indeed quite a cheery little outfit. With nothing offensive about them other than the odd profanity in a song like ‘Leaving Parties Early’, they’re a nice change […]

INTERVIEW: SIDE PROJECT

Side Project is made up of Anja and Luka two 20 year olds, from Zagreb, Croatia. I didn’t hear about them for quite a while because the Croatian scene is growing really quickly. I first heard them play on Valentine’s Day in Zagreb as warm up for Teen Daze and I fell in love. They […]

INTERVIEW: FRUIT BOMB

Last night, Fruit Bomb, Fallowfield’s very own Garage Pop band, were picked by The Skinny to play alongside Menace Beach, Weirds and False Advertising.

INTERVIEW: THE WEATHER STATION

Tamara Lindemann (The Weather Station) has had to rush off for lunch, after being stuck in hours of traffic on her way to Gullivers (gig reviewed here). This makes interviewing her rather difficult – my explanation of why I’m here to the woman on the door goes down badly and I receive a lot of […]
