Benefit gig for the Midland Railway!

Well……we couldn’t expect you to last until December without any Indietracks-related gossip now could we? If you’re like us and craving some railway-themed fun, but you just can’t wait until the Indietracks Christmas event (more information on this to come, kids), then we’ve got some exciting news which is sure to tickle your fancy!

Still bowled over by the hospitality of the lovely Midland Railway staff, those kind-hearted folks over at the Layer of Chips and A Fog of Ideas fanzines have decided to put on an all-day benefit gig for the railway. It will be held at Lee Rosy’s Tea Shop in Nottingham on November 16 and bands already confirmed as playing are (in no particular order):

The Bobby McGee’s
Milky Wimpshake (pictured above)
Pocketbooks
Phil Wilson (ex-June Brides)
MJ Hibbett
Frankie Machine
Lardpony
Pete Green
Gregory Webster (ex-Razorcuts/Sportique)

Tickets cost £7 and are available from We Got Tickets. Doors will open at 3.30pm and the gig will finish at 10.30pm.

And, in other news, we discovered today that Indietracks has starred in a music video for The Just Joans, who played in the church at this year’s festival. Part of the video for their new single, Hey Boy, You’re So Sensitive, was filmed at the railway and features some indiepop band members – see how many you can spot!

The video was made by Mark O’Donnell, who also produced this fantastic Indietracks video montage, soundtracked by a beautiful late-night performance by Let’s Whisper on the station platform.
