The Last Town Chorus return to the UK



December sees the return of The Last Town Chorus - the NYC based ensemble headed up by Megan Hickey. These latest dates follow hot on the heels of their recent UK tour supporting Guillemots and the release of the critically acclaimed new album Wire Waltz.

It's an album that has drawn comparisons with the likes of Cat Power and The Cocteau Twins and was not only The Sunday Times's Album Of The Week but also led to live sessions with Radio 2's Mark Radcliffe, Radio 4's Loose Ends and BBC6 Music's Phill Jupitus.

Live, the band is an utterly beguiling mix of soaring lap-steel wizardry and Hickey's melifluous heaven-sent vocals - never more apparent than on their stunning take on Bowie's Modern Love, a track that has not only been gracing the airwaves courtesy of the likes of Jonathan Ross and XFM but was recently featured on tv's Grey's Anatomy.
