Fortuna Pop! - Twenty Years Of Trouble: Butterflies Of Love, Sodastream, Flowers, Darren Hayman (ex-Hefner), Declan Allen
If you're hanging on to a rising balloon, you're presented with a difficult decision — let go before it's too late or hang on and keep getting higher, posing the question: how long can you keep a grip on the rope? They're selling Simon Love wigs in Woolworth's, man. The greatest record label in the history of mankind is over. They have failed to paint it black.
Celebrate Twenty Years Of Trouble with many of the bands responsible for Fortuna POP!'s untimely demise.
This event takes place at Islington Assembly Hall, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Offbeat indie pop rock outfit from the States, with a sense of quirk in their lyrics reminiscent of early REM. 'Yearning melodies and softly-softly harmonies (think the Go-Betweens), a back-porch swing (Lambchop, maybe), tentative yet high-tensile guitar work (Velvet Underground, Pavement)...' - Time Out
Butterflies Of Love tour dates
Beautifully melodic folk-pop from Australian duo Karl Smith and Pete Cohen. Often likened to Belle & Sebastian, Low and Lambchop, Sodastream’s music is so delicate you can’t help feeling it could crack at any time. Delicious, warm and spontaneously comforting.
Sodastream tour dates
The former frontman of celebrated late '90s indie heroes Hefner, Darren now has a solo career, which includes songs he wrote in a caravan. His songs cover a range of subjects such as crumbling crafts, dog charities, retiring schoolteachers and air hostesses plummeting to their death.
