Wednesday, eh? A girl I used to work with, years ago now, referred to it as ‘Hump Day’. Me, taking things all too literally, went at it on her leg for months before she explained that she meant ‘hump’ like a hill; that ‘Hump Day’ merely meant that we’d reached the working week’s summit, its peak, and from hereon in it was all downhill, baby. She left the office soon after that, departing for Greece, or Turkey, or someplace far away where I couldn’t reach her. Figures…
But WHAT, I hear you ask, waits at the end of this particular descent to the weekend? Why, the DiScover Club at the Camden Barfly, of course! This month we’ve not only jigged the club a little, so that we’re now presenting to you, dear reader/punter, the very best new bands we’ve wrapped our lugholes around, but we’ve also moved it a week forward. Why? Why not! Here are all the details you could ever want…
I Was A Cub Scout
Recent stars of Drowned in Sound's DiScover section, I Was A Cub Scout come on like a splendid amalgam of The Postal Service and Digital Ash-era Bright Eyes. A two-man band from Nottingham, they offer rousing, rambunctious disco-pop joy, wrapped in punk-rock language and indie electronica.

The Low Miffs
The latest band to be given the White Heat Records treatment, the label that launched cult stars ¡Forward, Russia!, Les Incompetents and Comanechi. Scottish quintet The Low Miffs play saxophone-penetrated angular indie-rock with a massive dancefloor sensibility and endless punk rock charm.
Plus we have wicked fresh awesome deejays for you, spinning discs of delightfully toe-tappin’ and hip-poppin’ excellence. Expect to hear Ollie Russian and Pirate Gaz of FROG fame, John Brainlove and Bamos, and also DiS’s own disc-jockeys of utmost skill and, like, sexiness.
The remaining facts of absolute necessity:
