Via zoo_music_girl, I hear that Flogging Molly are playing the Mean Fiddler on April 26th. So, there’s that.
But in another vein, the sleazy, creepy and marvellous Flipron are playing their unique brand of music in London on Monday the 28th of Feb. Anyone out there feel like trying something new? (Samples available here). They’re another lot like Firewater, in that I could not explain the kind of music that they play if my life depended on it. But they’re ace. Actually, now I think of it, fuse Firewater’s strange fantasies with a more fifties British seaside town sensibility, and you’re getting there. Dodgy men in raincaots hanging round the end of the pier, soundtracked by sinister fairground rides. Yes. Ace. Come and see them.
