Field Music
Field Music ** This night is brought to you by CLUB FANDANGO and BBC 6 MUSIC ** FIELD MUSIC hail from the same celebrated North East scene that spawned The Futureheads and Maximo Park, Field Music add something more cerebral to the spiked Mackem brew. Comprising a core of three members (Andrew Moore plus brothers Peter and David Brewis) and an ever-shifting crew of local luminaries, Field Music are something of a North East supergroup. Peter was The Futureheads original drummer; Barry Futurehead was in one of the many early Field Music line-ups and sometime drummer Tom English is on loan from Maximo Park. Listing The Left Banke, My Bloody Valentine, Stravinsky, Thelonious Monk, Stax and Atlantic R&B, Big Star, Jimmy Smith, Serge Gainsbourg, The Neptunes and Duke Ellington among their influences, it's hardly surprising that Field Music's sound is like all of the best pop you ever heard it once, but distinctly British - and distinctly north-eastern - with it.
