Attention all you lustrous London socialites! Looks like there’s a cool show to go see on October 12th. Details below. I still can’t quite believe The Sun wrote about Stars of Aviation. Perhaps that’s just some tongue in cheek myth building. It’s not like any of us are going to admit to being Sun readers after all, is it? I do know for a fact, however, that some old duffer at Tangents (ah, remember that?) once said that they were "a sweeping success, conjuring up notions of Galaxie 500 sucking on The Pastels, or The Clientele riding Telstar Ponies into the sunset." And now I can’t believe that The Sun and Tangents have been mentioned in the same context. Hurrah! for post-modern blurring of low-high art thingamajigs.
Enough already! Tell us about the show!

From Brighton, and featuring up to nine members, including bassoon, trumpet, accordion and keyboards, Stars of Aviation play indiepop music which is melancholic, orchestral and exhuberant in turn. 2006 French-language single, Marie et l'accordeon, was met with widespread acclaim and described by The Sun as "stylish and beguiling". This is their second headline show in London this year, following the a sell-out audience at the Buffalo Bar in May. Support comes from The Just Joans and The Felt Tips, two shining lights from Glasgow's indiepop scene.
