Firstly, apologies for the horrendous lack of posting this month. My laptop is a smouldering wreck and has seen better days, so I'm having to use a battered family PC. Here's what will be the beginning of a backlog I've wanted to post for a while.
The Nofairs are a Trans-Atlantic duo who formed after a chance meeting at Victoria station many years ago.
N was shooting a short film, Peter was coming home from his family's late Christmas gathering. Having just been ditched by her lead actor, she asked him to take the role. On New Year's Eve they played their first song together in a dirty hostel kitchen.
It's taken them some time to find their feet though, due to living thousands of miles apart (N moved to Chicago, IL; Peter stayed in London). However, they stayed in touch and continued to influence each other musically and in late 2008, they reunited in a flat in New Cross to become The Nofairs.
With a first meeting that almost sounds like something out of a Richard Curtis film, these two were practically destined to produce some sort of delicately stripped back acoustic goodness, and they do.
They will be performing at The Cross Kings on 29th August, so if this is your thing and you're around, get down and show some support.
