Shindig! 50th Birthday Issue

It’s a big one for anyone; us particularly, considering what 2015 threw up. And here we are, alive and kicking at 50. The issue hits the shops on September 10th (when we will also unleash our Podcast with interviews and chat with TEMPLES, GHOSTBOX and WHITE FENCE recorded at Green Man). On October 8th we’ll have a fabulous party at Rough Trade East in London’s hip East End with THE PRETTY THINGS (sign up here).

Simon Love (featuring Stewart Lee) ‘The Meaning Of Love’ video debut

This is a fun one from indie sensation Simon Love. Our fave funny man and Shindig! reader Stewart Lee appears too. Here’s a few words from Simon:


Hello people of Shindig!,
This video came to me in a dream but in the dream I was a lot better looking. Please note my excellent dancing and shadow boxing skills at the end. I’ve since had a haircut.
The song title is meant to make you think that it’s going to be a deep, heartfelt song about what love means to me but is actually Stewart Lee reading out the Wikipedia entry for Love (edited by me a bit though) over me and band – The Old Romantics attempting to be The Mar/Bar-Keys.
It’s taken from my debut solo LP It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time which is out on Fortuna Pop in August. Buy it please.
