Faerground Accidents plus Supports

‘Brilliant purveyors of Kinks-esque kitchen sink dramas with a New Wave make over…’ – Dave Franklin (Dancing About Architechture)

‘An emotional rollercoaster of wide-eyed highs and panicked lows…it’s a satisfying and exhausting listen’ – Hannah Vickers (Exposed)

‘There is theater, irony and an unforgettable party air’ – Riccardo Oliboni (Indie For Bunnies)

‘An album of wonk pop genius with salacious and acidic lyrics of poetic brilliance.’ – John Robb (Louder Than War)

Faerground Accidents centre around the songwriting talents of cross-dressing former psychiatric patient Bomar Faery. Originally based in Manchester and recording with keyboard imp, Henrietta Rowlatt, the early demos came to the attention of John Robb (Goldblade/The Membranes) who raved about them in a review on his Louder Than War website, whilst at the precise same moment, Bomar was committed to a Psychiatric hospital.

Decamping to his spiritual home of Sheffield on release, Bomar re-grouped with Henrietta and the pair teamed-up with ex-Artery guitarist Murray Fenton. Robb was so impressed with the new material he signed the band to his Louder Than War label, releasing the singles ‘We Hate The Same Things/Back In Town’ on pink vinyl and ‘She Makes Me Want To Die’, which became firm favourites with BBC6 Music and Frank Skinner on Absolute Radio. Catching the attention of Adam Ant who invited the band to open for him and the indie festival scene, the bands live shows have become legendary spectacles, with a growing nationwide following of Faeries in attendance wherever they appear.
Bolstered by bass player Simon Milner and drummer Adam Pearson, the band have released their debut album, ‘Co Morbid’ on Louder Than War.
