3rd June :

Bestatigt Werden / Cairde /Dead Letter Office / Drunken Gypsies

Bestatigt Werden are a heavy instrumental rock outfit trying out a new softer acoustic side. Cairde are a tradional irish band, a firm favourite of the irish community of Digbeth, playing all the old jigs and reels with astonishing musicianship. “Dead Letter Office are a triumph; an intense blend of Pixies/Joy Division fractured guitars, breath-taking and delicate Radiohead/Muse tinged anthems and an awe-inspiring sense of drama. Epic and life affirming music.” (according to the fly) Their debut album is out, you can order it here. I thought they were good the first time I put them on, sometime last year, but since then they’ve got a hell of a lot better, one of the few bands who I’d like to see get really big, if only because they’d be brilliant playing to a festival crowd at sunset.
