News The Neu Bulletin (13th February 2013)

Neu’s daily new music & live music recommendations, featuring Teleman and Oakland group Magic Fight.

From Monday to Friday Neu gives you a gluttonous supply of new music tips, ranging from which shows to head to across the UK, right up to which latest Canadian export is due to take the world by storm, or which local band is breaking big.

Every day we offer up a choice show, a song of the day and a little something extra that’s caught our attention. Check back here every day for your latest Neu Bulletin delivery.

Teleman - The Waiting Room, London

Another chance to catch former Pete & The Pirates’ stars starting a new chapter, in a FREE show from a group who’re still strictly speaking unsigned. Their delicate, sweetly-spoken pop needs to find a home sooner or later, so check out Teleman (pictured, above) while they’re still fresh out the oven, celebrating a single launch in triumphant style.

Magic Fight - Grey Hairs

And play ‘Grey Hairs’ until you form your own batch of greys.
