Killers on Camera
The Killers, as we could confusingly call them, have only been treading the musical boards for a short few months, but already they’ve had loins swelling as a result of one of the best demos of the year so far, and a set of incendiary live performances featuring the most shit-hot rhythm section we’ve seen for a while. It’s English guitar pop that for once we’re not afraid to compare to the Strokes on account of it’s taut, tight musicianship and an ear for a fabulous bout of tunes. Other comparions have been made to The Fall, PiL and other such luminaries, but we tend to just call them great. www.killersoncamera.com
On stage 10.15pm
Causing a substantial hubbub when they last turned up in the capital, Birmingham’s Snowfield are purveyors of reverb-driven, giant caustic pop songs. A truly impressive band who have gained nods from Joy Division, Coldplay and Doves fans alike. But, we hasten to add, not in that rubbish student-with-a-echo-pedal way. Deeply excellent and wholly engrossing. We say, catch them before you buy the major label single in three different, chart-eligible formats. www.snowfield.co.uk
On stage 9.30pm
Completing the line up is the wonderful Spaceman 3-esque guitar buzz of Sennen. Having made one of DiS' favourite three-tracks of last year, we invite you to come and check them out for yourselves.
