Hurrah for Silvery. I first picked up on them over at Pileys place (he's got a tip top Pickwick/Top of the Pops records feature running at the moment too).
Silvery are everything you hope for in a new band. They're young. They like people I like - Bowie, Sparks, XTC. They've got smart jackets and even smarter tunes with all the clang and spangle you could want and they're playing this Saturday at Blow Up Metro on a double bill with The Bongolian (one of my fave albums of last year). I'll certainly be there raising a glass and shaking a leg. But until then have a peep at their new single 'Horrors', released as a double A side with 'Orders' - it's my single of the year already, and we're not even out of January yet.
Silvery - Horrors
Silvery - Orders(Demo)
PS - If you're at the Silvery/Bongolian gig and see a chap in polka dot cravat - do come and say hello. It'll be me.
