Though chock-full of comedians who have glossy posters everywhere (have you checked your front door yet?), the venerable Edinburgh Fringe Festival is suffering from a crippling indie pop deficit. This August's Unpop will act as a stimulus package for all pop fans, who would otherwise be wasting away in their rooms for want of listening to The Aislers Set through relatively powerful speakers.
As per the norm, Unpop brings out the heavenly pop hits, all the way from jangle pop to post-jangle pop and jangly pop...expect to hear the likes of:
-- Heavenly -- Orange Juice -- Pavement -- Jens Lekman -- Belle & Sebastian -- Standard Fare -- The Clean -- Half Man Half Biscuit -- Evans The Death -- The Smiths -- The Wedding Present -- Helen Love -- Jonathan Richman -- Kenickie -- Bearsuit -- The Breeders -- The Fall -- Pulp -- The Aislers Set -- Of Montreal -- Deerhoof -- Camera Obscura and many more...
We're pleased to announce that our guest DJs for the night are local indie pop heroes The Spook School, who will undoubtedly play a set of such brilliance that we will all be rendered deaf by sheer amazement at their curatorial skills.
Also, there'll be free badges, sweets and a limited number of C60 mixtapes on the night, so get down early to increase your haul of twee.
