The Story So Far: Hey Sholay are a five-piece group of musicians / filmmakers / artists from Sheffield and Leeds, who play a breed of psychedelic independent pop. They have been - quite correctly - described as imperious masters of the contemporary anthemic chorus, with bright vibrant tunes and a beat guaranteed to make you tap your toes.

Way back in the mists of time ‚ April 4th this year, in fact ‚ Hey Sholay brought those bright, vibrant tunes and toe-tappingly fine beaticles to Club Fandango for their debut London show at the Bull & Gate. Team Fandango were so impressed by their anthemic psychrock tumblings that they offered a single release by the time the night was over and, barely three months later, here spins the double-Hey-side (cheers) debut Dreamboat / The Bears The Bees The Clocks. And if you think the music is slightly out there, then perhaps you should hear how Hey Sholay describe their singular opus:

?́Two paralleled separate moments lay etched into the grooved valleys of ebony compound cellulose nitrate before you. Both looking identical in colour and texture, and being born of the same hands. Though arriving in the same void-black distortion of your onlooking figure, the restless journey of each inch or so of sound could not differ more¬¶

?́The first (Dreamboat), an affirmed beating of skin and stoking of twisted wires at 45 rpm ‚ sourced from the echo and concrete of an old steel works. A single day in germination before its committal to the lathe. A gentle finger taps on the sound console as Dave Sanderson places the second Chromosome just in the right spot to trigger a new beginning.

?́The twinned AA side at 33 rpm (The Bears The Bees The Clocks) ‚ being nourished from the same umbilical chord, and growing whilst cradled under the same warm glow of the same room of music. Though on this occasion, the sunflowers and megaphones face towards the south to document the sounds of the wind. Recorded amongst the peacocks, and nurtured by Ian Davenport ‚ the nature defies the sum of the parts being the same.

?́Two distinct alchemies - limited to only 500 copies ‚ will never be used or released upon public ears again. So grace that needle firmly on the outer-shores of the already-spinning black island, and breathe soft as waves of lost sighs and story times lap at your heels before disappearing to the whisper of that final vulturous circling rotation¬¶and click.¬ù

Over the last two years, Hey Sholay has germinated an interactive developing fan base due to both recent internet interest from independent blogs, The Fly and Q magazine as well as local press. Alive on stage they come into their own, with capacity headline shows and selected support slots with the likes of Male Bonding, No Age, Slow Club, Darwin Deez and I Am Arrows tucked beneath their skinnyfit belts. But don't just take their word for it - come see Hey Sholay shake their collective cosmic booty here¦
