Here’s a lovely early Christmas present for you; a 5-track EP from Father Christmas’s friendliest helper, Jeremy Warmsley. Not only is he offering four acoustic versions of his own (frankly astounding) songs, he’s also thrown in a pretty special Abba cover, as the icing on the cake.
Jeremy Warmsley’s never been one to rest on his laurels, but the man’s really excelling himself in the next few months. Not only is he debuting his new band, Acres, Acres, this week at two London venues, producing lovely covers with the Little Words, and taking himself off to the big apple, he’s also putting together a tour for October. Fwooft.
The folkstars were out in force on Monday night for the Stars of Sunday League’s launch of EP ‘The Boy’s Got Prospects’.
First up were I Said Yes, who came from all over the UK to play just two tracks. FFS has been looking forward to hearing them for some time. And – despite having to switch around parts thanks to a singer with no voice – they didn’t disappoint. I Said Yes play lovely and rousing folk pop with accordion and violin.
Emmy the Great’s much hinted at appearance at The Stars of Sunday League EP launch show last night was not to be.
Stars of Sunday League’s Euan Robinson put on the show in conjunction with Platforms to launch his debut EP The Boy’s Got Prospects. And he used his contacts to create a stellar line-up of big names and new finds. Euan said on the night: “I asked a lot of bands that I like, but I had no idea so many would say yes.”
Stars of Sunday League are set to launch their debut EP, ‘The Boy’s Got Prospects’ this Monday (3rd August), and some pretty strong hints are flying around the internet, suggesting that the act billed as ‘A Special Secret Friend’ may be none other than Emmy the Great.
For those Londoners going stir crazy this bank holiday weekend we’ve got a last minute gig suggestion for you. My Latest Novel are launching their second album Deaths and Entrances at Bush Hall tonight, with support from It Hugs Back, Left With Pictures and Stars of Sunday League.
London folkies – and sometime Peggy Sue collaborators – Left With Pictures are hosting the fourth installment of their mini festival ‘Fleeting Fanfares’ on Sunday 29th March.
The event will be held at The Cross Kings in Kings Cross and will feature Liz Green, Esiotrot, Stars of Sunday League, SJ Esau, Frances Thorburn and Duncan Brown’s Boiling Oil. And for the talented (or shameless) among you, there will be an hour of open mic from 5pm-6pm
FFS met up with Jeremy Warmsley to talk ukeleles, rock operas and okonomiyakis. Intrigued? We certainly were.
“If you get referred to with other artists you really don’t agree with then you feel like their politics might besmirch yours.”
Jeremy Warmsley has spilled the heart-shaped beans on the line-up for his Heartbreak Ball. The swoon-fest will take place at The Slaughtered Lamb in Clerkenwell, where Warmsley will be joined by Johnny Flynn, the delectable Slow Club, Gossamer Albatross, A Classic Education and lovely Stars of Sunday League.
