|fierce panda and The Most Radicalist Black Sheep Present: Shear Me Now
THE CROOKES - 10.00pm
Sheffield-based thrillseekers THE CROOKES are back with a new single, new album and a new guitarist. New single, 'Made In The Dark', comes out July 23rd. Album 'Hold Fast' comes out on July 9th. Read all about it here.
THE KABEEDIES - 9.15pm
A disarmingly youthful bunch of indie sprites busting out of Norwich with a line-up of three boys and one girl and a collection of fizzbombing pop nuggets which has had various Radio 1 DJs weeping with on air joy, not least with most recent singular release ‘Treasure Hunting’ (Cool For Cats).
PANDA CUBS - 8.30pm
They may be newcomers, but Panda Cubs appear to have emerged fully-formed. They may sit in that gloomy corner occupied by the myriad bands who’ve based their sound on Joy Division’s blueprint, while having also synthesised many elements of the contemporary crop – Editors, Interpol, White Lies – but damn, they’ve got songs and are remarkably accomplished. Their debut single, ‘Faithful’ is a cracking dark pop tune and by no means the best song in the set. Having already received airplay on BBC Introducing and the NME website and bagged a support slot with Sissy and the Blisters in the seven months since they formed, it’s hard to imagine that they’re anywhere other than at the beginning of a rapid ascent.
