9.15pm Fonda 500
Since emerging from a disillusioned British music scene in 2000 with their critically acclaimed album ‘8 Track Sound System’, Fonda 500 have pre-empted musical styles and scenes, and released a succession of influential yet highly individual albums. The sound of Fonda 500 makes a beguiling group photograph. Outrageous Led Zep riffs firmly hold up the back row whilst Beatles rhythms make rabbit ears sneakily behing Kraftwerks’ upright mid-row stance. SFA mess up the middle of the photograph by tickling ELO in the ribs and making the 2 nd row a blur. The front row is topped off with the Beastie Boys sat hands on knees next to Cornelius, with beautiful Brian Wilson cheekily lying on the floor pretending to swim. ‘Great pop moments topple into each other… play loud and often,’ says Mojo UK. Listen to awesome ‘Jenny #1’ herehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?
8.45pm Fully Mared
Formerly Julian Donkey-Boy – who The Fly once described as writing ‘the most endearing bedroom guitar music a boy in Woody Allen specs could ever dream of’ – Fully Mared plays lo-fi folk songs and is from North Manchester. Here is ‘Fed Up Like a Worry Doll’https://www.youtube.com/watch?
