Time to Stop and Stare at electro-popsters Fenech Soler - more tour dates added to busy Autumn 2010 schedule

Upon checking Northampton's perky pop-disco quartet Fenech-Soler's outstanding gig-list, I nearly coughed a lung up - there are dozens of them between now (they're in Barcelona tonight if you can get a flight sorted) and the last one currently listed on 10th November (London's Heaven). So committed are the chaps, they'll be playing Lapland on the 24th December and plopping presents down chimneys in time for Christmas and a gig in everyone's lounge - OK, I exaggerate a little, but there is really no excuse for not making the effort.

Their recent single "Stop And Stare" is a rather lovely way to spend three and a half minutes and the rest of their armoury ain't too shabby either. Time to check that tour-list out then.

After a bout of festivals during the best part of the summer, including Wakestock 2010 on Sunday, Lovebox 2010 in July, The Wickerman Festival 2010 in July, Relentless Boardmasters 2010 in August, V Festival, Creamfields 2010 and (whew!) Jersey (JERSEY?) Live Festival, they begin their own headlining dalliance in Aberdeen on 1st October, Stirling (2nd) and other Scottish dates before heading south to Newcastle (7th), York (8th) and Liverpool (10th) and yet more English towns until Cardiff (26th) - I mean, the list just goes on until that Heaven date in London (10th Nov). Fair play to 'em.

Tickets are on sale with just about all of them under £10, even after the usual fees. It's only just over a tenner to get into Heaven. There is a bit of a buzz about these boys so might be worth getting in quick.
