The Author Hit The Mainland
7th April 2009
Artist Profile »

The Author land in from the land of, errr, Jersey to take place at this year's Gaymers Camden Crawl but as well as this obviously it made sense to sneak in another London gig, and that happens to be at Club Fandango at 229 on April 22nd, where they will play with Wintermute, The Screening and Record Department.

The Author started life on the Jersey in the Channel Islands evolving their distinctive and mysterious style of music in isolation from the mainland. A collective of weird and wonderful creatures: a cockney and Geordie song writing partnership lead the madness, with an Aussie drummer, and two Jersey natives on bass and synths. Amongst their relatively untouched and remote landscape, together they have fused the very foundations of the basic and complex indie-riff, alongside an epic and obtrusive noise of synthesisers, mixed with dance beats, creating something unique for the UK to seriously get excited about. Prepare for The Author to write the future. New single 'Household Appliance' is coming out on April 27th.
