I’ve already raved on these pages about the wondrous Fairey Band and their Acid Brass. Londoners are in for a treat tomorrow as the Fairey Band and Jeremy Deller bring Acid Brass to the old Olympic Park for the Open East festival.
I haven’t been able to find any info on when they’re playing so, being such a rabid fan, have emailed their poor new manager for information. They’re playing Saturday 1-3pm alongside a top line-up (although I’d say Sunday’s was arguably better – Wire!). Worth a trip out to Stratford, I’d wager.
Embedding isn’t allowed on this video but it’s well deserving of your click, if only to watch Kirsty Wark introduce a brass band playing a rave classic with such a straight face.
