Lesley Woods (ex Au-Pairs front person, guitarist and songwriter) and French For Cartridge will perform live in session on the show this afternoon.
After the longest time away from any stage Lesley Woods is back with a solo performance using backing tracks, electric guitar and bass (the latter courtesy of Brighton based Tim Sagar).
Backing tapes compiled with the invaluable assistance of also Brighton based John Thursfield and Josh Rumble, colleague of infamous Andy Gill of Gang of Four.
Lesley will be performing 2 new songs plus a re-worked version of Repetition (which she first did on Au Pairs’ album “Playing with a Different Sex”).
French For Cartridge is a London-based band fronted by a male/female duo. Formed as an attempt to create atonal pop music whilst at Goldsmiths, the band has recently released ‘We Humans’ – the follow-up to their acclaimed 2010 album ‘Liquorice’ – on Dinner With Daisy Records. For this collection of genre defying, style bending art pop, the band has again worked with S. Husky Höskulds (Tom Waits, Fantomas, Meshell Ndegeocello), who has enveloped the songs in a suitably twisted aural landscape.
