Bopp Hops on to World Cup Bandwagon (but late)

The unredoubtable Wolfgang Bopp just popped this into our electronic box:

"One week has nearly passed since England’s ignominious exit from the World Cup and we at the Bopp feel it is only right and proper to offer a musical pick me up to the disenchanted residents of London.

To fulfil this task we have engineered a line up of immense quality, if we do say so ourselves.

The Wolfgang Bopp presents

Fury of the Headteachers
Hailing from Leicester we have we have Fury of the Headteachers a band with an astonishingly brilliant name and a portfolio of tunes to match. They have already featured in session on 6music and their live show has been called “breathtaking” by Soundsxp. Intriguingly described as sounding like “the Buzzcocks underwater” by the Daily Record we look forward to them gracing The Montague.

I've never met a normal person from Leicester. I've met some nice people from Leicester, don't get me wrong, some of my best friends are from Leicster, but none of them are ever anywhere near what you'd call 'normal'.

Anyway, back to the Bopp:

From Sheffield in the Peoples Republic of Yorkshire Redcarsgofaster who were so good when they played the Bopp last summer we have asked them back. Described by Drowned in Sound as “utterly fantastic” they are recipients of probably the best line of any review I have ever seen courtesy of Joyzine; “People are shaking their heads in disbelief; looking at each other the way couples do after the birth of their first child” high praise indeed. Needless to say it seems we are far from being the only ones who love this band.
