Operator Please

Last night I was in attendance at Levi's One's To Watch at the Barfly, Liverpool. Yes, I know it stinks of desperate corporate marketing, but they've certainly had more than a modicum of success, with past performers including, among others, The Editors, The Kooks and everyone's favourite shoe-gazer, Maps. The Headliner last night: Operator Please; a clean cut bunch of juvenile Gold Coast Australians.

Looking like something from School of Rock, Operator Please push forward a rather innocuous brand of Indie-Pop Rock while boasting both a violinist and a Beth Ditto lookalike. Although the audience (comprising mostly of 14 year old drunks) were treated to an overall tight and at times fun performance, I soon realised I was party to nothing groundbreaking. That said, they serve a purpose, albeit to entertain college kids, but there's no harm in that now is there.

For those who haven't had enough violin infused indie, here's some more entertaining use of the instrument from Belgium's dEUS. Oh, and before I forget, you should be able to get Check The Availability at now.
