With Indietracks and the London Olympics both now (warming, nourishing) memories, Not Unloved was in dire need of something to look forward to. Chickfactor's recently announced November weekend of pure pop joy. therefore, couldn't be more welcome. Saturday, 17th November is shaping up to be a day to remember: The Pastels are my favourite group ever, Amor de Diasmade my favourite lp of 2012 and Bush Hall looks like a smashing venue. Phew! The Sunday line-up, too, is a studded with diamonds: Tender Trap's new lp has been receiving great notices, Would-be-goods were classy and lovely at the Hangover Lounge weekender earlier this year and there's a rare chance to catch Pipaslive. Tickets are sure to shift quickly so best head here and here before too long for tickets!
