It’s cheers for Faers at their pre-Christmas gig

Hayes FM pre­sen­ter Hughie Dixon re­views the live band scene

Uxbridge Gazette - - LEISURE -

F you are look­ing for a frol­ick­ing fun few hours this fes­tive Fri­day evening then five-piece Faers may fill that cri­te­ria.

These Hilling­don-based boys take to the stage at The Crown and Treaty pub on Ox­ford Road, Uxbridge at around 10.30pm on Fri­day with Pretty Vis­i­tors from Hayes in the sup­port slot. This year has been a busy one for Faers, what with ap­pear­ances on BBC In­tro­duc­ing Ra­dio, Ra­dio X and a live show at the Y Fes­ti­val to name but a few high­lights.

Also, their lat­est sin­gle Time has ex­ceeded all their down­load ex­pec­ta­tions.

Faers’ mu­sic is bright and up­lift­ing with psy­che­delic gui­tar sounds rem­i­nis­cent of The Stone Roses, The Cure and The Mac­cabees.

Their bass and beats are re­fresh­ingly spa­cious, al­low­ing the pure Lon­don English­ness from vo­cal­ist Steven to shine through un­clut­tered.

Pretty Vis­i­tors are a lively in­die/ punk four piece who are heav­ily in­flu­enced by The Jam, The Clash, The Strokes, Jamie T and The Arc­tic Mon­keys, from whom they ab­stract their name.

It is free en­try to The Crown and Treaty be­fore 10pm and just £5 af­ter. The live mu­sic should be over by 1am and the DJ will keep you bounc­ing un­til 3am.

Be sure to tune into my in­ter­ac­tive HayesFM ra­dio show ev­ery Tues­day at 8pm to hear live and orig­i­nal per­form­ers, plus great tunes, chat and more lo­cal live mu­sic news. You can find HayesFM on 91.8fm in Lon­don or GLOBAL on

Merry Christmas ev­ery­body.
