Cheers for Hilling­don’s lively five-piece Faers

Hayes FM pre­sen­ter Hughie Dixon re­views the live band scene

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE -

INDIE HE­ROES:

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
