Number One-selling artist. but Silje hit the heights in her native Norway and Fat and Frantic are one of the biggest unsigned draws in Britain. With a fan club that numbers upwards of 5000. they can fill the Town and Country Club with ease. and are no strangers to Edinburgh either. having played the Festival twice. Playing an acoustic pop which may yet give them a hit single. they have a curious effect on their fans. who. for instance. give their hair a good tousling for ‘Last Night My Wife Hoovercd My Head.
