? BANDS ?
? Stairs To Korea
From North London via Reykjavik, Will Vaughan makes budget anthems through slipshod use of modern technology and a dinky white guitar. It's pop Heaven - right here on Earth.
? Spaghetti Anywhere
From East London via Glasgow and Rome, the combination of uplifting brass, gloriously catchy 80s pop choruses and rolling Rs with Postcard and C86 jangle and groove is an indiepop delight.
? DJs ?
? Darren Hayman
With an amazing CV comprising a run of releases as part of Hefner, The French, Hayman, Watkins, Trout and Lee and The Secondary Modern, Darren Hayman is an all-time Pic 'n' Mixx fave.
? Alasdair MacLean
Frontman of The Clientele, who've produced "some of the most heartbreakingly lovely, perfectly formed music anywhere over the past decade" (according to the BBC). Sixth album Minotaur is out on September 6.
Our celebrity DJs might well play you the likes of En Vogue, Mariah Carey, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, The Primitives, The Pastels, Heavenly, Antarctica Takes It!, Destiny's Child, Camera Obscura and Bis. UNTIL LATE.
? MIX CDs - BRING ONE WITH, GO HOME WITH SOMEONE ELSE'S ?
