The Doves Fly in to Fanny's

The Doves Fly in to Fanny's

Who: The Doves
Where: Fanny's
When: Saturday June 17, 2000

TOUTED by the UK music press as spiritual heirs to the likes of THE VERVE, SHACK and TALK TALK, Manchester trio THE DOVES are heading to Newcastle this Saturday night to support ALEX LLOYD at Fanny's. The Doves began life as a disco house act SUB SUB in 1993, which went to number three in the UK charts with the song AIN'T NO LOVE, AINT NO USE. The group members are brothers JEZ and ANDY WILLIAMS and JIMI GOODWIN. The group's last two tracks as Sub Sub were collaborations with TRICKY and NEW ORDER'S BERNARD SUMNER. The demise of Sub Sub, and the transition to 'real instruments', came after a fire in the group's studio destroyed all of its master tapes and equipment. The result has been string of EPs and the magnificent bittersweet debut album LOST SOULS. SONIC JAUNT: MOSH inducing electronic duo SONICANIMATION will rock the University of Newcastle on Thursday, July 13. With a string of radio hits (DIDLEY SQUAT and THEOPHILUS THISTLER) to its name, and a coveted spot on this year's TRIPLE J HOTTEST 100, Sonicanimation will be in town to promote its fourth single I'M AFRAID I THINK I'M HUMAN from the album ORCHID FOR THE AFTERWORLD. PIANO MAN: BEAUMONT Street's newest night spot, the Boulevarde On Beaumont lounge and cocktail bar, has started a weekly entertainment program this week featuring piano man PAUL ROTHAFEL. The lounge doubles as a restaurant, but patrons benefit from the restaurant's drinks-only liquor licence which allows the ordering of alcohol without a meal.
