Riff masters Fake Tales make their Treaty de­but

Hayes FM pre­sen­ter Hughie Dixon re­views the live band scene

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE -

AFTER a short but well de­served break, the Crown and Treaty pub in Ox­ford Road, Uxbridge, are back to host­ing live and orig­i­nal mu­sic and this Fri­day sees the de­but of the indie-grunge riff masters known as The Fake Tales.

Tak­ing their in­flu­ences from The Arc­tic Mon­keys (and their name too, ob­vi­ously), The Black Keys and Muse, this four piece of fel­las hail from Har­row. Their mu­sic is pow­er­ful, dirty and dis­torted and I mean to use those ad­jec­tives in their most pos­i­tive senses.

There’s sup­port from Voodoo and an­other band yet to be an­nounced.

Live on my ra­dio show on Tues­day Oc­to­ber 18 from 8pm un­til 9pm, I’ll have the soul­ful and dul­cet tones of Hilling­don singer/ song­writer Myra Franklin dec­o­rat­ing the air­waves and in­ter­net.

She has been out of the loop for a year or so and was re­cently coaxed back to per­form­ing by Ro­nan McManus (brother of Elvis Costello) from Bible Code Sun­days who are pop­u­lar reg­u­lars on the lo­cal live mu­sic scene.

Tues­day will be Myra’s sec­ond per­for­mance on the show and we’ve missed her tremen­dously.

Be sure to tune into my in­ter­ac­tive HayesFM ra­dio show ev­ery Tues­day at 8pm to hear live and orig­i­nal per­form­ers, plus more lo­cal live mu­sic news.

You can find HayesFM on 91.8fm in Lon­don or global on www.hayesfm.org.uk.
