SISSY & THE BLISTERS - 09.30PM
Think The Strokes on a budget of thruppence and a diet of manic pop dreams. Vintage Vox organ-tastic rock 'n' rollers, Sissy & The Blisters new video for 'Let Her Go' (which comes out 3 October on fierce panda), is up and running, and gaining lots of online attention. Check it out here

THE CHEVIN - 08.45PM

Four young men from Otley, West Yorkshire. They consist of Coyle Girelli (vocals), Mat Steel (guitar), Jon Langford (bass) and Mal Taylor (drums). THE CHEVIN is pronounced é─˛The Shev-In'. Fans of the West Yorkshire tourist board are already sure to know that The Chevin is also name of the hill which surrounds the bandé─˘s hometown.

O'MESSY LIFE - 08.00PM
o-messylife.tumblr.com This band have gained a reputation as one of Newcastleé─˘s most exhilarating and unquantifiable bands, following three self-released EPs over the last two years which have received widesprad critical acclaim. Drowned In Sound called them a "loose-limbed, meandering, wonderful example of what happens when a band truly doesné─˘t give a fuck about genres." New single 'Escape Velocity' - out on 17th October - is an enormously infectious slice of rock bounce which harnesses the riotous spirit of Titus Andronicus (a band with whom Oé─˘Messy Life have shared a bill) and is one of the catchiest songs you'll hear all year.
