Mazal tov to missFlagby michael • September 18 2007
Municipal news, Music
Homegrown Jerusalem Britpop band missFlag is on its way to breaking out of its tiny Israeli niche into the wider music world. The band just performed live by request on the Morning Becomes Eclectic show on Los Angeles' KCRW, a show whose DJ, Nic Harcourt, is renowned for his star-making tastes (his early promotion helped break artists from Massive Attack to Alanis Morissette in America). Exposure for missFlag means exposure for many of the great bands in Israel currently unknown to the nations, and it also means that someone is out there projecting an image of Israeli culture that has nothing to do with conflict. So a big Jerusalemite mazal tov to you, missFlag, and may you spark a new trend of internationally-admired Israpop.
