Riff masters Fake Tales make their Treaty debut
Hayes FM presenter Hughie Dixon reviews the live band scene
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.
