The Truth: In April 2013 semi-delectable promoters Club Fandango turned 12 years old. To celebrate this marginally mystifying event its in-house record company Label Fandango decided to inflate the marketing hovercraft up to the max and release 12 singles by their very favourite new acts over the next 12 months to celebrate those 12 tumultuous years. Which they duly did, starting last April with electro roustabouts Ed Zealous, dashing through digital singles by The Machine Room, DeLooze, The Hosts, Desperate Journalist, Felt Tip, Department M, Longfellow, The Starkins, Feldspar and I Am In Love and ending 362 weeks later with the brrrrrand new single from rumbling Brummies The Traps.
Every great release deserves a launch and every birthday deserves a party and so it is that on April 21st no fewer than seven of the above collective will be joining forces in Dalston to light the candles and fight the good fight as Club Fandango turns 13 years old, and below we have stagetimes and details of which '12X12' releases they are bringing to East London.
10.15pm I AM IN LOVE 'Proposal' (released March 3 2014) Hectic electropop loveliness infused with the DNA of DFA and a great big outpouring of melody. Expect a full album later this year.
9.30pm THE TRAPS 'My Grip' (March 17 2014) Giant synthpop sadness from Birmingham with an imposing melodic demeanour. Taken from the album 'Calypso'.
8.45pm DESPERATE JOURNALIST 'Organ' (November 11 2013) Great big gothic punkpop palavers from two boy / two girl combo suffused with achingly deadpan panda-eyed glamour. Follow up single 'Happening' is occurring on May 5th.
8.00pm FELT TIP 'Love Or Pity' (November 18 2013) Intensely diginified indie spikings from London trio with a really excellent train in the video. Follow up single 'Milk & Honey' is out now.
7.00pm Teabreak time
6.30pm FELDSPAR 'Young And Invincible' (February 24 2014) Self-proclaimed "indie folk bastards" hit the epic jackpot with firm sense of braces-wearing musical direction and a life-affirming chorus.
5.45pm THE STARKINS 'Roundabout' (February 17 2014) Super-cheeky mega-bouncy indie rockings from Sheffield teen quartet, occasionally compared to Harlow's finest Blind Mice.
5.00pm LONGFELLOW 'Siamese Lover' (January 27 2014) A veritable radio smash from demure South London elt.pop quintet, big on the verse and even bigger on the chorus. Follow up 'Kiss-Hug-MakeUp' is out on May 19th.MORE NEWS
