Not Unloved is up to high doh with the news that Debsey Wykes and Paul Kelly's soft as snow group Birdie is playing live for only the second time in a decade and at London's pretty Union Chapel, too. The time couldn't be more right for Birdie to return to the stage what with Paul's documentaries on Debsey's group Dolly Mixture and Lawrence Hayward from Felt finally hitting the big screens to richly deserved acclaim. We have the smart kids behind The Hangover Lounge to thank for making this happen. If you remember, a gorgeous Birdie song graced their second e.p. released last Record Store Day. Anyone in the same hemisphere is urged to be there. It's free, for goodness sake!
(I once bought a 15 7" bundle on ebay just to get "Spiral Staircase". It didn't even have the sleeve!)
