The bands are great and are as follows:

Suburban Mousewife

New all-female five-piece from London playing a lo-fi punked up cross between The Fall/ Slits/ Crass/ R Dean Taylor/ Shangri-Las and Kraftwerk

“Funny as well as catchy…” – Artrocker

“AMAZING” – Tatty Devine

I really like this band – think they can totally deliver live and I like their vibe.The stand out ‘singles in waiting’ are Botox Skin, Gulags for Slags (great name by the way), and Shop Shop.” The Girls Are “Unique sounding vocals and scuzzy dark post punk backing, the discordant scratchy guitars remind me of The Yummy Fur which is a very

good thing” – Camilla Pia (BBC)

“Distinctive. Got some real life to it” – Viv Albertine (The Slits)

“An incredible night with Eel Zine, Suburban Mousewife!!! Yes!!! and position normal – a bunch of happy people, entirely independent and punky and a total triumph of what can be achieved through hanging out and having fun with no ulterior motive- i can’t honestly think of anything more radical- absolutely bloody brilliant.” – Jonny Mugwump, Resonance FM

Hip-hop poet Brotherman

“A refreshing slice of heavyweight homegrown hip hop with an infectious hook, crisp production and next level conscious vocals from one of my favourite new mcs on the block. This ones the new generation and staying in my box for a while….Brotherman…Blaoooowww!!!” DaddySkitz (BBC 1Xtra)

The Dublo

“The Dublo make their long-awaited debut, with double-bass, accordian, harmonica and a variety of other fine instruments channeling their strange, infectious but always hip-swinging RnR anthems.”

” Anarchist hymns.. filthy RnR boogie!”

And then we will have some great DJs between 12-2 PM.

Please help spread the word!
