May 22 will see Derry combo The Wonder Villains playing One Big Weekend in Bangor, Wales. It's another excellent turn in a story that has found them supporting Scouting for Girls and the New Young Pony Club, playing live on BBC's 'Headspace' online broadcast, selling many CDs and dispatching their tenth podcast, full of bright spirits and keyboards with wonky keys.
The band have been supported from the get-go by Stephen McAuley at Radio Foyle and Rory McConnell from Radio 1, as well as the ATL team. Now there is English management involved, bold plans for the remainder of 2010 and seemingly, no dent in the band's shiny self-possession. We hope, with good reason, that things will remain thus..
