Well well well! Three days until the Notting Hill Arts Centre opens its doors to a bunch of rowdy funksters looking for an awesome FREE gig and drinks a’ plenty. T’is an awesome time to be in love with music. THREE DAYS!!! I can assure you, there is absolutely no other way one could spend an afternoon and feel so fulfilled at the close of the eve, I even challenge you to test such a statement! Over the last two days we have seen an interview with Duke Raoul and a tasty munch of information about them too. Be sure to check them out, for this coming Saturday, they will be sure to inspire. The 405 Presents 4 or 5 Magicians – Dan Ormsby, Sam Clarke, Graham Pembrey, Alex Wilkinson Website: www.myspace.com/4or5magicians 4 or 5 Magicians are no ordinary band, but more of a collaboration of intoxicatingly wonderful musicians with a passion to play, and to play well, with such energy and emotion on-stage you will be hard pressed not to like these guys. 4 0r 5 Magicians, in its simplest sentiment, is Dan Ormsby. A London/Brightonite with boundless talent for lyrical retort and melodic prose, he has been the centrepoint and architect of 4 or 5 Magician’ worldview and direction since its conception. He writes the music and the lyrics himself “and to do it live, or record the hard bits, [the band consists of] 3 or 4 people better at playing stuff than me” he explains. NME quoted of the band - "Brighton five-piece 4 or 5 Magicians are more exciting than the prospect of Paul Daniels actually fulfilling his long-running promise to leave the country under a Labour regime. With lyrics so slick they make Alex Turner sound like a spluttering old colonel struggling with a cream bun and equal parts lo-fi bedroom fuzz and glorious art-pop melody (think Supergrass meets Shellac) we're struggling to think of one solitary loser who won't like this band. They're going to be the new Manic Street Preachers, but with less tights and guy-liner" Well, I get what they are saying I guess, but I really think 4 or 5 Magician’ has carved a unique sound all his/there own and I trust you to be the judge of that! So enjoy the musicification expelled from your speakers, may it evoke a smile upon your face that persuades your feet to walk Notting Hill bound this coming Saturday.
