PETE FIJ & TERRY BICKERS – more live dates announced…..

Fresh from a live appearance on the Radcliffe & Maconie show on 6music this week, Messers Pete Fij & Terry Bickers have announced a few more live shows in the coming months.  Hear their downbeat and melancholic tunes laced with a wry humour and lyrical wit at these places:

Aug 9th – supporting Pains Of being Pure At Heart . Brighton – Sticky Mikes
Thurs 4th Sept – Northampton – NN Cafe
Fri 5th Sept – Hebden Bridge – Trades Centre
Sun 28th Sept – Colchester – Arts Centre
Thur 9th Oct  – Leeds – Santiago Bar
Fri 10th Oct – Stockton – Green Room
Thur 6th Nov – Leicester – Firebug

The debut album “Broken Heart Surgery” is out now. The Guardian called it “a gently melancholic album that’s really rather lovely” whilst Q magazine described it as “a sparse, rather lovely album. Bickers’ playing is a masterclass, while Fij’s voice has the fragile, worldly wise tenor of Richard Hawley or Ian McCulloch” and Mojo had it down as a “gorgeous set of bruised mid-life ballads.” Louder Than War said that ‘Broken Heart Surgery’ was “One of the most captivating albums of the year…a back from the dead triumph”,

In other radio and tv news messers Bickers & Fij won the Roundtable Review Show ‘Single of the Week’ for Out Of Time, getting both the nods from the panel and the listeners alike; the listeners of BB6Music also voted overwhelmingly for Out Of Time to win the Rebel Playlist, ensuring daytime plays on Shaun Keavney, Lauren Lavern, Radcliffe Maconie and Steve Lamacq, as well as plays on Gideon Coe, Janice Long (Radio 2) and Huey Morgan (Radio2). Our two downbeat mariachi’s were guests on Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’, and on TV the video for ‘Out Of Time’ was shown on Channel Four’s ‘Sunday Brunch’.
