It goes like this:
"Make a mix CD, swap it, watch some bands and have a dance. Wear a cardigan, if you fancy. We're launching on Friday October 30 at London's wonderous Buffalo Bar.
You can win CDs made by Frightened Rabbit, Internet Forever, Los Campesinos!, Lucky Soul, Dananananaykroyd, Art Brut's Eddie Argos, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Comet Gain, Amelia Fletcher, The Clientele, Pocketbooks, Xfm's John Kennedy, Everett True and a selection of other taste-making know-it-alls if you contribute one of your own on the way in.
And we'll know who you are: if you've been lazy, you'll be issued with a sadface stamp at the door. If you've been clever, you'll get a happyface stamp on your hand. Don't be sad!
You can get your tickets in advance from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/59398 for a bargainous £5, saving yourself one precious pound on door-price.

He reminds us of Half Man Half Biscuit, and others have said he's "a middle aged man on a ukulele", and "a lot of fun, all geeky references and wry humour". All true.
GRAVE ARCHITECTS www.myspace.com/thegravearchitects
Signed to the beautiful Fortuna POP! label, Grave Architects have "the offbeat humour of Jonathan Richman, the kookiness of early Pavement, the tunefulness of Loaded era Velvets, yet very English and eccentric." Wowzers.
THE PERYLS www.myspace.com/theperyls
The Peryls trade in a brand of creaky, sinister pop - dark, lyrical and enchanting. Drawn out from hiding by a need to share their curious findings with the outside world, the Peryls bring you tales of deranged doctors, dancing bears and doomed experiments...
+ DJing 'til 4 from Sean from Feeling Gloomy"
Stalk it at http://twitter.com/picnmixx and http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=132683393727&ref=mf, but more importantly, come.
And finally, if anyone wants to help spread the word I'd be very very pleased. I'm beyond excited about this and just want to make sure that everyone who would love it knows it exists! Thanks forum.
