Rock, pop and stocks order of the day at City singers Shoreditch gig

THE CITY’S Got Talent was the cry on Monday evening, as two Square Mile bands the Fundertones and Fried Egg Sandwich put on a gig at trendy Shoreditch club XOYO.

Readers may remember that The Capitalist has recently been singing the praises of a number of City crooners – but despite boasting band members from the likes of Nomura, Santander, GLG Partners and Goldman Sachs – these latest Square Mile singing sensations shy away from their day jobs when on stage, preferring crowd-pleasing rock covers to lyrics deep with market insight. And what of the rock star rider? The Capitalist hears it was nothing but a modest egg-mayonnaise sandwich and Coke.
