Happy days! Amidst all the discussion surrounding the Electric Picnic line for 2010 which I will deal with at later date, I have just discovered Eel Pie’s finest, Mystery Jets are playing the Academy on Friday April 17. They have always stood out in what has been in recent times a largely bland indie ‘scene’ due to talent, eccentricity and peculiarity making them one of the best bands around. While their debut was ambitious it was a little lack lustre but the follow-up Twenty One on the other hand was absolutely fantastic. I saw these guys way back in 2004 (for £4) supporting Bloc Party in a club in North Wales and they stole the show that night, but alas since then they have proved for one reason or another to be very elusive until now.
