Those nice Foggy Notions people have announced a string of gigs over the next few weeks:
Thursday 10th May Suburban Kids with Biblical Names Whelans
Theyve only existed since December 2003, still they already sound as if theyve been writing songs together since the beginning of time. Or perhaps more like children whove played together forever. Theres something very playful and extremely catchy about their music that makes our bodies quiver each time we hear them. They make and record their music in the hallway or the storehouse at the home of Peters kind parents. Johan makes simple drafts of the songs and then Peter polishes them and turns them into shiny pop songs.
