The Proper Ornaments
Mission Bells

Mission Bells by The Proper Ornaments comes a mere 9 months after their last long-player 6 Lenins. Musically they are tweaking their Velvet Underground-influenced formula by adding a Moog and electronics to their sound. The band are led by James Hoare of Veronica Falls and Ultimate Painting. Mission Bells is their 5th album.

The Proper Ornaments
6 Lenins

The Proper Ornaments are now on album number three: 6 Lenins. The band are led by James Hoare, who also happens to be in Veronica Falls and Ultimate Painting and Max Clapps of London shoegazers Toy. They take ‘60s American jangle and turn it into a very English jangle. They’re pretty good at it too. LP and CD on Tapete.

Proper Ornaments
Foxhole

One of them is in Ultimate Painting and Veronica Falls, another is in Toy and Pink Flames. Thus have we Foxhole, a record that abounds in sweet harmonies, clever songwriting and jangles galore that was put together between bouts of work with their other projects. Lead track ‘Memories’ is Lennon-pastiche par excellence. Vinyl and CD from perennially-good Tough Love (Let’s Wrestle, Cymbals Eat Guitars etc.).

Beat Mark / The Proper Ornaments
Flowers / Two Weeks

Flowers/Two Weeks is a split single that represents the culmination of a beautiful Anglo-French union that has built up over recent years between British band The Proper Ornaments and their french counterparts, Beat Mark. Beat Mark have an indie-pop jangle that recalls Orange Juice and Aztec Camera whist The Proper Ornaments, who feature Max Claps from Let’s Wrestle and James Hoare of Veronica Falls and Ultimate Painting marry the 12-string chimes of The Byrds with the poppier moments of The Velvet Underground. This is an indie-pop lovers dream!
