Line-up /LIVE :THE XCERTS + THE INDELICATES + ABOUT: BLANCK + THE GOOD GODS!
DJS: BEN Ayres + DR KIKO
THE XCERTS are a double edged sword of ferocious guitar and dainty, poetic words - a distorted pop band who fuse the influences of fellow countrymen Idlewild and Biffy Clyro with the thoughtful approach to songwriting of old school ‘emo' bands like Jimmy Eat World and Bright Eyes.
The Indelicates are a five piece, piano and guitar-led pop/rock act from Sussex, UK. Taking their musical cues from folk and classical sources - as well as the broad spectrum of British indie rock - they write melodic, edgy and intellectually coherent songs that have been consistently well-received in the UK and abroad.
Former lead singer of hotly tipped but ultimately short-lived DIRTY HANDS returns from a year abroad to form About: Blanck (formerly Al Cool and the Stranger Wines), singing timeless songs in the vein of Sam Cooke, The Walkmen, Credence Clearwater Revival and The Whitest Boy Alive. Written late into the night in boozy living rooms across the continent and expelled on stage in a raucous and violent, yet tender soulful rock 'n' roll mess. Two singers, three guitarists, a drummer, a bass player & a synth player make up the six youths behind the sound of About: Blanck.
The Good Gods! have six legs, twenty four fingers and three hearts. Direct and indirect descendants of the Angryband, The Good Gods! came into being in the summer of 08' though remain hidden for some months, only leaving the safety of the rehearsal room to forage for food, record and play the occasional gig.
