THE ILLIGITIMATE SONS OF THE KING ('Rock fuelled hip hop eclectic mashup'' -Time Out Magazine)
'A sound that appears completely fresh,irresistable hooks and choruses that beg to be sung at 4 in the morning...' (Hype Magazine). Being compared to Mike Skinner-meets-The Arctic Monkeys in some quarters, The Illegitimate Sons of the King chisle a new genre combining rock 'n' roll, hiphop, jazz and classical. Since forming a year ago they have snowballed in popularity, gaining celebrity fans and stunning reviews and even broadsheet newspaper attention. This is a chance to get near while you can. ISK constantly tour the UK with EXPLOSIVE LIVE PERFORMANCES and always looking for venues to create mayhem in. This evening it's The Good Ship. Be there.
ELECTRIC COMPANY (alternative British pop)
Through eternally overcast skies and cold liquid under-foot, stride passionately, four faces of youth, vigour and virtue. Wonderfully English, The Suggestions bring the money, and insist upon the attention of your ears and eyes. Pop music is pop music again.
THE STANDARDS (Tipped as fug classic pop with an alternative rock twist)
"The Standards are already coursing way above average" (Metro Newspaper). Hoovering up fans like a Dyson, The Standards exude charm, sparkling tunes that sound like they've already been hits and on stage charisma. It's no surprise that interest in them is rising at the rate of the planet's water levels... Recent supports with The Wombats and loads more cool gig offers already. Currently in NME's Top 20 new bands shortlist for a gig at Koko. Vote at http://www.unsignedheroes.co.uk/
FLAMINGOES - VERY SPECIAL GUESTS on stage at 8.30pm! Cult Power Popular Pop
Over a decade on from an acclaimed debut album, 'Plastic Jewels', twins Jude and James Cook reunited to record the self penned and produced follow-up, 'Street Noise Invades the House'. The album draws on their early influences - Beatles, Bowie, Punk and Power Pop but also persues the more reflective style begun on songs such as 'Absent Fathers, Violent Sons' and 'Winter'. The twins big screen debut is in 'The Lives Of the Saints' (with Marc Warren) http://www.thelivesofthesaintsthemovie.com but for now, this is their only scheduled live appearance.
