From time to time, music evenings that change the direction the world travels come along, their resonance is such that the earth cannot help but dance along a path of its own, regardless of gravity, regardless of physics. They dwell in a dimension all their own, one of vibrations and reverberations, one of silent echoes and infinite screams. Well friends, one may just be around the corner… Saturday 10th January Notting Hills Arts Centre…

Presenting My Amiga - Alan Croft, Dave Kittlety, Phil Tonge, Phil Trentham… http://www.myspace.com/myamiga They have been described as "Dreamy Scouse indie-pop covered in lashings of ice cream. Infectious, jubilant and with a dance floor factor of 10. My Amiga, armed with a glockenspiel and catchy chorus melodies, break waves of pleasure-pop over the rocky shores of indie beaches and then bask in the sunshine of their own happy magic." by ‘this aint no party uk’, and I quite agree. "Taking props from bands like the postal service, the futureheads, modest mouse and american football, they make their music by mashing up guitars, drums, bleeps, glocks, hand claps, melodies and a lot of energy!  In the past they've shared stages with bands like Late of the Pier, The Maccabees, I Was a Cub Scout, Youthmovies and Hot Club de Paris. Whilst getting mentions in press like the NME and The Fly along with airplay on Bethan Elfyns radio 1 show!  The new year should see a UK tour and there are also plans to release a split 7" with another super-cool Liverpool band..." With their enigmatically up-beat musical prose and vocal harmonies that, on paper, should not work but in the reality that is ‘My Amiga’ work in a way that is both incredibly fun and inspiringly unyielding in aptness, they are the onomatopoeia of a happy laugh and the metaphor for a summers day.

Their proficiency in song writing and melody creation will cause you feet to move uncontrollably despite the wants of your mind. Worries seem to disperse with each clap of the hands and tap of the skins. They are a respite from living, so join them in a world of musical magic and creative carnage, and draw a smile on the surface of your soul…

Love this band… Saturday, January 10th, Notting Hill Arts Centre, 4pm onward, Free Entry, The 405 Presents…
