After August off to drink ourselves around the nations festivals, Drowned in Sound's Brave New Ideas night is b-b-back. With avengeance. With yet more great new bands...
Details of the first Brave New Ideas comp, which will now be released using some very clever interweb technology, are to be announced very soon. Previously we've had chart-wobblers Kaiser Chiefs, acclaimed songwriter M.Craft, star-gazers Redjetson and many more the world will be talking about in months to come (like what we did with Razorlight, Bloc Party and Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies last year).

BRAVE NEW IDEAS #7
Thursday 2nd September 2004
@ 93 Feet East, Brick Lane, London, E1

A coup! A headline set from this weeks Kerrang single of the weekers who're also racking up play all over the radio and MTV2. Agent Blue are a quintet who purvey rock n roll mayhem to the extreme. Angry, visceral rock at its most splendid, the band are all still in, or barely out of, their teenage years. They're from Stoke, are banned from several venues and have a Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Oceansize, Biffy Clyro) produced debut album out on Universal later this year.
AFTER THE SILENCE
Set to release their debut EP on Drowned in Sound recordings later this year, After the Silence create brain ensconscing sounds thanks to their enchanting Coopers-style combination of gushing samples and zooming guitars. Ones to watch indeed. This the Sheffieldian's debut London gig.
North London's MSC write poised 'emo' rock songs with a nice, literate centre. Idly compared by some to a Dave Grohl-infested QOTSA, Led Zeppelin on a sunny day and a xanex-free At The Drive-In, MIRROR.SIGNAL.CRASH will soothe the earaches and nosebleeds with their 'core offerings'.
