TWO of Sydney's finest indie pop bands will stop over in Newcastle as part of a national tour this week to deliver a melody-driven gig of tasty pop.

Hot off the success of new releases and popular singles, Lazy Susan and Major have embarked on the national Suburban Boy Tour and will perform at The Northern Star Hotel on Saturday night.

Triple J listeners would be familiar with Lazy Susan after the station put the tracks Canada, Bobby Fischer and Skywriters on heavy rotation.

The album Long Lost was released in June and has received much the same healthy response from both fans and critics.

The Suburban Boy Tour will also back Major's debut EP Inner Western, which will be followed up with a debut album that the band hopes to release early next year.

'We've got our toll money ready, the Monaro's full of leaded and we're looking forward to fanging it" around the 'burbs with our mates Major,' Lazy Susan's Pete Wilson said.

Major share much of the same excitement for the tour and are looking forward to sharing the bill with Lazy Susan.

'Both bands are looking at this tour as an opportunity to search for beauty, truth and a decent shopping centre,' Major's Danny Murphy said.

'It's going to be great leaving our inner-city hovels to return to the suburbs which made us.'
