Chickfactor 22: The Clientele, Versus, Barbara Manning & The Saturday People
Mar 21, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm| 20 adv/ 25 door
Chickfactor zine is super-excited to bring some their favorite bands to The Bell House! Featuring: The Clientele, Versus, Barbara Manning & The Saturday People
Originally from Hampshire and later London, the band featuring lead singer-songwriter Alasdair Maclean, plays perfect pop songs. This lineup featuring Maclean, James Hornsey on bass and Mark Keen on drums hasn’t played together since 2005. The group hasn’t played in the US since 2010. The three got back in the studio for the first time since 2010 to record a new 7″ single for the Merge Records Thousands of Prizes thing, which is their first new material in 4 years Interviewed in CF 13.
Many associate this band with 90s indie rock but they put out a pretty bad-ass LP on Merge Records in 2010 titled On the Ones and Threes. Another “chickfactor house band,” Versus has switched off members over the years but this year will be the handsome Baluyut brothers Richard and Ed and foxy Fontaine Toups (CF Cover Girl issue 6).
Barbara Manning used to be the poster girl for San Francisco, and has participated in some of the best pop music ever (with 28th Day, World of Pooh, SF Seals) and especially as a solo artist. She’s currently living in Long Beach and is a high-school chemistry teacher! We are very happy to have her on the lineup. CF Cover Girl issue
