This week, we’re bigging up the weird pop of Jim Noir, who has the ability to splice the sunshine licks of the Beach Boys and the rhythm of early Beatles tracks with a low-fi-ish Mancunian charm and a bowler hat.
Renaming himself in honour of Jim Moir, aka Vic Reeves, Jim is best known for his oft-soundtracked “My Patch”, in which he makes the threat to “bring you down” seem remarkably fun. He’s just released a new album, ‘Finnish Line’, and is bringing it to Bristol’s Louisiana on Friday 21 November. Don’t miss out!
