Moira Stewart the kids say? Yes an odd name for a band. Taken from the cult British newsreader famously sacked from the BBC for being 'too old'. Moira Stewart fuse the old British C86 indiepop sounds with the current indie electrobeats of 2008. Influenced by the electro sound of late 80's Depeche Mode/New Order and the songwriting talents/mentality of The B52's, Orange Juice The Orchids. Famous/Infamous for their 'alternative' live shows in the UK, the band strive to make the live performance something 'not' to forget - banned from venues for throwing glitter everywhere, the band continue to feature on stage videos, custard pie/food fights, interactive games of twister, glitter, silly string and ballons. Oh, and if you get a chance to listen to our new album released on Distration/Cabin boy please do!!! 'Moira Stewart take to the stage and throw balloons around, let off party poppers and fire silly string into the audience - they haven't played a note and I already like them. And they feature two former members of Mr Evil Breakfast, one of my favourite ever bands - bonus! But the music is where the magic happens, and boy, is it magic. Waves of warm synths combine with the silliest keyboard melodies, and massive beats collide with indie guitar riffs - they're bonkers, brilliant and definitely my new favourite band. And if the real 'Moira Stewart' objects to their name, may I suggest 'Bill Turnbull' as an alternative?' Words: Thomas Bagnall (NARC magazine,UK)
