FIRST off this week I’d like to draw your at­ten­tion to The Late Day Break­ers, from Wat­ford. They played a pow­er­ful set in Cam­den on Fri­day when I went to see lo­cal ladies Lips sup­port them at The Barfly. Some soul, some ska, some rock but all with their unique LDB stamp.

Plus they’ve added a horn sec­tion since I last caught them, some five years ago at The Crown and Treaty in Uxbridge. www. late­day­break­ers.co.uk, will en­hance your au­ral senses no end and I be­lieve they’ll be back at The Crown and Treaty very soon.

Speak­ing of that very pub, on Ox­ford Road, on Fri­day at around 10.30pm you can treat your­self and ex­pe­ri­ence a fine cou­ple of cre­ative mu­si­cians Al­fie Pawsey and Joe Bai­ley, col­lec­tively known as Hard Ac­tors. La­bel­ing them­selves, some­what un­justly I fancy, as indie pop, this duo hail from East Anglia. Within their reper­toire are some very well­re­hearsed and well-ar­ranged Pur­ple Co­bras @ The Brook House, King­shill HayesAAv­enue, The Reg­gu­laters @ The Car­pen­ters Arms, Uxbridge Road, Hayes True Gold (Trib­ute) @ Tropic, Grosvenor Vale, Ruis­lip Jump The Gun @ The Crock of Gold, High Street, Ruis­lip

Un­der­sound @ Ryan’s Bar, Bos­ton Road, Han­well Pack of Lies @ The Six Bells, Sta­tion Road, West Dray­ton The Stiles Band, The Three Steps, High Street, Cowley The Fly­ers @ Hayes and Harlig­ton Con­ser­va­tive Club, Church Road, Hayes Lit­tle Rock @ YYe Olde Crowne,

songs that in­stantly re­sound like clas­sics to the lis­tener, who may be wait­ing for the rest of the world to catch on.

Vo­cally and har­mon­i­cally pre­cise, they gen­er­ate an at­mos­phere of nos­tal­gia for when the pop mu­si­cian was the true Sta­tion Ap­proach, Hayes Tail-Ga­tor @ The Gen­eral Eliott, St Johns Road, Uxbridge Bi­ble Code Sun­days @ The Brook House, King­shill AAv­enue, Hayes artist, be­fore the in­dus­try gave it­self way too much con­trol.

Hints of The Style Coun­cil, Ra­dio­head and Mar­il­lion sur­face here and there. It’s free en­try to the Crown and Treaty be­fore 10pm and £5 af­ter.
