We met the lovely Slow Club ahead of their show at FAC 251. We managed to get into the old Factory Records office, home to the infamous designer table and the setting for the rise and demise of Factory. They performed this exclusive track from their forthcoming album. Thank you Slow Club!

Slow Club is a folk-rock duo from Sheffield, England. The band formed in 2006, after the break-up of Sheffield band The Lonely Hearts.
The band is made up of Charles Watson (vocals, guitar) and Rebecca Taylor (vocals, guitar, percussion). The band has supported other Sheffield contemporaries such as Tiny Dancers as well as Omaha based band and labelmates Tilly and the Wall, who share the band’s alternative, folk orientated sound. The band is notable for their use of unusual objects as percussion instruments such as glass bottles and even a chair.
The band released two 7″ singles in 2007, Slow Club and Me and You, both on Moshi Moshi records. On 1 September 2008 their first EP was released entitled Let’s Fall Back in Love. A Christmas single titled Christmas TV was released in December 2008.
On 7 April 2009 they announced via their blog that their debut album, which was recorded by Mike Timm at Axis Studio in Sheffield, would be entitled Yeah So and would be released on 6 July 2009. The band have begun work on their second album which is expected for release in early 2011.
