Andy quirk returns to Camden for the first time since Come Out 2nite! occupied the Purple Turtle with a one off Sunday, before moving to Fridays in March.
* The Ruling Class bring epic indie anthems to London in a way not seen since the Stone Roses invented Madchester. Recently signed and rapidly acquiring nu-baggy disciples expect great things.
* Guildford and life affirming pop-punk are not usually easy bedfellows. However, The Getaway Team are set to change all that. Presenting an alternative soundtrack to your favourite teen movie expect them in the charts shortly.
* Described by Art Rocker magazine as "a beast of a band" and "the cult it's ok to join", Old Street Musical Union have carved themselves a reputation as one of the finest, most inventive bands on London's unsigned circuit. Rich harmonies, great musicianship and killer songwriting have built the band a massive following in the capital, which is now extending through acclaimed appearances at festivals including the Secret Garden and Standon Calling.
* Meg were approached by Gavin Monaghan (John Peel Sessions/Idlewild/Mercury Rev/Babes In Toyland) of Magic Garden Studios to record their first demo after watching one of their legendary live shows. From there it just snowballed with gigs at Lancaster University, Aberystwyth University, Bristol and the Camden Underworld supporting Quasi, Jarcrew & Grandscope. Come early to catch Kidderminster's finest lo-fi electro indie pop rock export.
