This Saturday sees a pleasing blend of treats strewn liberally around South London's least twatty rockhole:
TEN CITY NATION (Bury St Edmunds)
"Exhibition Time Again pits murderous melodies against some fabulous harmonies... a bruising slab of impossible-to-ignore rock that can’t fail to inspire a whole new generation of wannabes to pick up a guitar and play it to death" - Screaming Tarts (single review, 'Exhibition Time Again)
"Ten City Nation manage to create a mood of their own, which is uncommon enough... Their moth-eaten darkness, their quest for disharmony, are evidence not only of their deep musical culture, but also of their radical talent." - This Is Fake DIY
THE NEW HAPPINESS
Like The Replacements high-fiving Big Star at Izzy Stradlin's backstage sex party. Featuring Michael from South London rock heroes Nebraska and songsmith-supreme Dexy.
The Repeats sound like members of Radiohead, XTC and The Attractions fucking up early Strokes tunes with something very much like aplomb. They are from Oxford, which pretends to be a city but is a TOWN.
PLUS DJ Dexy
