True Indie legends, and widely acknowledged one of the UK's most influential 80s bands, THE WEDDING PRESENT, have requested that up and coming (to a future near you) newer wave pop outfit, DEXY & THE HAND ME DOWNS are special guests at the London Koko date of their sell-out 'GEORGE BEST 20TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR' celebrating their debut album. A completely new name outside of the word of mouth/net on the UK alternative pop underground, Dexy has already incited international excitement on the strength of his first material up at http://www.myspace.com/dexyspace - look out 2008.
Catch Dexy and his band up close this weekend. They play the very first of the ULU Sunday Sessions with Nebraska + The Standards. Monthly early evening E&A&R gatherings launch on 28th October as an open invitation to get involved with DIY hitting central London's cheapest bar (pints, £1.80p) for monthly buzz band bills. http://www.myspace.com/artfulmtb - promo for bands with November releases is invited for the goody-bags and photographers / writers / industry contact 079 8320 6218 or email
