About the cast...
SCARE THE NORMALS
Righteous, thrusting titans of the hip-hop/punk/grunge crossover, featuring former members of Miss Black America and My Hi-Fi Sister and fronted by legendary MC Ill Bill, Scare The Normals will make your hips shake and pummel your brain into liquid sushi.
Ipswich's finest purveyors of balearic/crunk/junk/disco/funk/alternative sounds, Broken Shapes live are probably the closest most of us will ever get to experiencing the glory days of Factory Records and the Hacienda. Christmas is coming early, and it's coming in your face.
Impossible to pigeonhole, The Soft describe themselves alternately as "Shoegaze" and "Ambient", but in reality they're carving out something completely their own. Genuinely refreshing and already making waves in That London, don't expect to see them this low down the bill anywhere for very much longer.
Winner of the 2011 Bury Songwriters competition and ludicrously gifted as a guitarist, the man formerly known as Simon Says will kicking off a night of virtuouso genre-bending in fine style, demonstrating why mixing up 'Live at Pompeii'-era Pink Floyd with an electronic take on early Strokes isn't nearly as daft an idea as it sounds.
plus DJ JAY SWINE (Generation Of Swine)
Back in late 2002, with Radio One's John Peel playing Miss Black America, Exiles, Blue Gandhi and Dawn Parade records, Rolling Stone magazine named Bury St Edmunds the 2nd most rocking city in the World*. At the epicentre of the Bury scene was The Lucky Break, where (alongside future-Long Blonde Kate Jackson) Jason Sparks, aka Jay Swine, could be found manning the wheels of steel. With Bury's music scene exploding once again, tonight sees Jay back at the decks, rocking his city as only he knows how.
There is no part of you that does not love this.
