Recordings by The Last Starfighters have surfaced eight years after they were recorded.
The Derby outfit, headed by ex-Plans & Apologies man David Williams, and joined by Jamie Cattermole (Plans & Apologies, Cheap Jazz, A-tota-so) and Robin Newman (Plans & Apologies), have unearthed the recordings and made them available for download via Bandcamp. Happy Accidents also features cameos from some of Derby's local musicians, including Richard Birkin (Emphemetry / Crash Of Rhinos) and Dan Wheeler (Cheap Jazz).
If you like your indie all introspective and autumnal, then this record will hit the spot just nicely, especially on a cold day like this. What's more, all proceeds from the sales of Happy Accidents will be donated to Penny's Fund, which is raising money to help buy much needed drugs and medical equipment for Systemic Sclerosis sufferer Penny. So go pick up the record and pay a fair price for it – or more if you can afford it – every little helps and it's for a super good cause.
