THE RANK DELUXE : Live on home turf, the “rowdiest, angriest punk rock explosion” (nme) celebrate the release of new single TIGHT ROPE (10 March) at their home turf stomping ground. The aptly-titled ‘Tight-Rope’ - sung by guitarist Lewis (‘a loud-hailer on legs’, NME) - is taken from the forthcoming debut album; a thrilling car-crash of punk-, reggae, rocksteady and psychedelia. It’s the real action of a band bristling with attitude, at war with themselves, intuitive and with a knack for aligning musical and social commentaries. They are blistering live. This is an invitation to the riot. http://myspace.com/therankdeluxe
THE GIN RIOTS : New Wave Anti Folk Explosion with a reputation for "a boozy sense of theatre". Suit the Inn crowd then...! "A talented young band, destined for mass media exposure" (This Is Music). http://www.myspace.com/theginriots
DOCKSUD : The unworldly industrial alternative to earthling bands. Star-soul freak rock.
REPLICAS : Special late set and multi-media event from USA. Are friends electric? Find out tonight. http://www.fnipgh.com/replicas/
“every head has many voices / a voice of passion / a voice of reason / a voice of instinct, etc,etc / sometimes the voices unite / and an easy decision is made / but sometimes each of them have there own agenda / some of the voices are fuckin hard to turn off / especially them instinctive ones like, ego, jealousy and pride / it’s a shame when you know a voice is wrong / but you let it dominate your intelligence / but at the same time / that’s beautiful” (Tight-Rope)
