TACKS, THE BOY DISASTER play their first ever UK show tomorrow (Wed 7 Nov). They are set to play 229 on Great Portland Street and are supported by Effi Briest and Inward Eye. All these bands have travelled from afar, so please come along to support your foreign cousins!

TACKS, THE BOY DISASTER have a sound too expansive to be labeled purely as indie rock. Tacks, the Boy Disaster offer thoughtful and imaginative lyricism, solid musical hooks and rich instrumentation reminiscent of late-'60s/early-'70s pop. Yet the band, whose moniker is derived from a minor character in a forgotten children??s book, has managed to reconcile their brilliant pop sensibility and familiarity with their taste for the unexpected. These little musical surprises, ranging from a juxtaposition of melancholy lyrics with sunshine-y harmonies ?Ć la Harry Nilsson to whirling piano lines are what set Tacks?? sound apart from their peers. The Austin Chronicle called Oh, Beatrice, 'a mixture of ecstasy and mania', comparing Tacks?? sound to Bowie, Beach Boys, and the early Factory Records releases.
