Cheers for Hillingdon’s lively five-piece Faers
Hayes FM presenter Hughie Dixon reviews the live band scene
TFaers n £5 on the door and £4 in advance advance.
Doors open at 7pm and the nearest tube station is Kilburn.
I’d like to thank all the musicians, singers and appreciators of live music who attended the final jam at the Blues Bar, West Drayton, on Sunday.
It’s a shame that such a highly spirited communal space is also prime real estate, but that’s the price we pay for progress.
A massive thanks to the jam band drummer Vinny Moore who has played in various bands at the venue for more than 35 years.
Rest assured that another jam evening will emerge in West Drayton very soon so watch this space.
Rest In Peace The Engine, Stations, The Blues Bar and a century of British culture. Hooray for unaffordable housing. Jets, as well as the more classic iconic bands The Cure, The Smiths and Joy Division.
Faers have come a long way since there inception a year and a bit ago and their accolades include selling out at Camden Rocks and The Barfly, as well as a well received slot at the Penn Festival last year.
This is their second gig of the year and the diary’s looking pretty busy for the rest of 2017 too.
Try before you buy? Sure. Check out www.soundcloud.com/ faersmusic and in particular the tracks ‘Time’ and ‘Alamere’. You won’t be disappointed.
Also on the bill are Furs & Masks, Bloxx and Violets. Entry is HE Hillingdon five-piece going by the name of Faers will appear in Kilburn tomorrow (Thursday).
These local indie heroes play a return gig at the hugely respected venue The Good Ship, up on Kilburn High Road NW6 7JR, and I’m sure they’d appreciate your company and support.
They’re lively, London and vibrant and a twinge of psychedelic pop dominates their upbeat modern dancey sound – a sound which takes in influences from the likes of firmly established latter day indie stalwarts such as Bloc Party, The 1975 and Mystery
