I sort out the guff, so you don't have to. Unless you really really want to.
Friday 13th November
[V.V.Brown - Cockpit]
A bit like The Noisettes, but more soul based. Catchy 60s-influenced tunes and deserves a bigger following. Just ignore the hair.
[The Paper Chase - Brudenell]
Eccentric emo, bewildering videos. I'd only go if they promised to have actual decapitated people there.
[La Roux - Stylus]
The daughter of June from The Bill. The one who did Something About Mary hair before Dannii or Jedward. Excellently executed synthpop.
[Dinosaur Pile-Up - The Well]
Pointy guitar? Check. Floppy haired singer? Check. Namechecking something abtract ie. dinosaurs? Check. Thrashy, bouncy rock. Oh to be 17 again...
[Gentleman's Dub Club - Fav]
Leeds-based dub outfit do their stuff. Some of the tracks I've viewed don't seem to ever kick in enough, but it DOES make you want to dance.
Saturday 14th November
[Frankie & the Heartstrings - Nation Of Shopkeepers]
If Dexy's and Morrissey had a below average lovechild.
[Zombina & The Skeletones - Mine]
Punk rock. And vampires. Yup.
[Esser - Elbow Rooms]
Looks like he could stand in for La Roux. Sounds like he might break out into Parklife at any moment. Mishmash influences and catchy tunes.
[DeLorean Drivers - The Library]
Layers of influences and sounds. Boy/girl oooooh-eee-oooooh vocals. If the Eurythmics had a punch up with some New Romantics down a back alley aided by some twangy guitars. In a really good way.
[Emmure - Rios]
The lead singer looks like a fat, bloated Danny Dyer pretending to be in Grange Hill. Sounds like he's trying poo lumps of coal.
