Date: August 10th
Venue: Nambucca, Holloway Road, London
Bands: UNION STREET RUNNERS + WOJTEK GODZISZ + 4 OR 5 MAGICIANS + LOOK-SEE PROOF
** UNION STREET RUNNERS take their influences from the greatest movements in British music from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s but are also deeply rooted in Blues, Motown and Atlantic. They're brand spanking new on the scene.
ONSTAGE AT 10.15PM
** WOJTEK GODZISZ makes his long-awaited return to the world of music after a youth spent writing and playing in Symposium ('Best Live Band In The UK' - Melody Maker). Still a phenomenal stage presence, Godzisz's solo material is at once triumph over adversity and tainted with a new worldly experience.
ONSTAGE AT 9.30PM
** 4 OR 5 MAGICIANS are a Totally Hot Right now Brighton 4-piece. Think Pavement. Think Guided By Voices. Think Blur. Think Supergrass. Think The Pixies. Now stop thinking and come and see this band.
ONSTAGE AT 8.45PM
** LOOK-SEE PROOF have had a whirlwind six months of existence briefly under the name The Newtones, which has seen them support The Rifles, The Fratellis, Breaks-Coop and The On Offs and build a loyal local fanbase in the dingy bars of their local Bedford. Their mod-tinged exuberance, their bold yet insanely catchy melodies and inspired 3-part harmonies was enough for Tigertrap to quickly snap up the band for a single, which will see the light of day on Oct 2nd.
ONSTAGE AT 8PM
