LET'S WRESTLE, ROD THOMAS, APPLICANTS, KEITH TOTP, GODWITS, LOOK SEE PROOF, STORY ONE, RESPONSIBLE ADULTS, WHAT WOULD JESUS DRIVE
with FREE BBQ for early arrivers
Pete And The Pirates' labelmates on the way up. A young three-piece with their own theme song and 'I Wanna Be In Husker Du' and numerous plaudits from DiS to NME should tell you all you need to know for now.
He comes armed with a Casio keyboard from back in the day, a guitar or two, a loop pedal, a synth, a tambourine and a Welsh accent. Rod is not your typical singer/songwriter.
Two boys and one girl armed with guitars and a synth with a hectic live show. Don't stand too close if you want to keep your pint in your hand rather than on the floor. Debut mini album out this summer on Tigertrap/Brainlove.
KEITH TOTP (AND HIS MINOR UK INDIE CELEBRITY ALLSTAR BACKING BAND)
We can't tell you who's going to be in the band because we just don't know, but last time we checked there were eight guitarists. Keith hates your band.
Maintain the traditions of the best in English songwriting with a modern freshness and vigour. The band are turning heads and swelling hearts wherever they go with music that reflects the contradictions of life.
LOOK SEE PROOF
Been causing something of a 'stir', yes they have, after a string of singles and topping the Club NME chart. "This is pure pop with all the good bits present and correct: choppy, insistent guitars, a pounding beat and harmonies a go-go" - NME
Violin-toting frontman in epic songs shocker, with two self-released albums under their belts. They played for us last year and were amazing, so we got them back.
Three men who really should know better give it some Akira The Don-style rap/pop (or something).
WHAT WOULD JESUS DRIVE?
A boy/girl duo with a cool line in short, sharp, spunky indiepop. They have a song called 'Boomtown Twats', so are obviously brilliant.
