XX Teens

www.myspace.com/xxteens

The death disco just doesn't come as mind-spanglingly, sky-scrapingly, full-screen techno-colour-ly as the immacuate corruption of convoluted pop-art STUFF that is the XX Teens. They're all over 20. If the Fall, PiL, Pixies, Contortions, the Pop Group and ESG sounds like just another collection of the same ol tired comparisons you've heard a billion times before, then try these: Octopus, steel drum, glockenspiel, bucket, spade, muggings, magic, cut-throats, sharp suits: Dada, Prada, Vagina Dentata.

Hatcham Social

www.myspace.com/hatchamsocial

From the Island of Dr Moreau comes the eccentric, dis-harmonic meta-pop of the Hatcham Social: Absolutely not wanting to sound anything like Pavement, the Velvet Underground, Orange Juice, The Jesus and Mary Chain or Josef K is an obsession which often drives them to stand at the end of brighton pier for 48 hours at a time just to feel the waves lash against their faces. They're also devoted to charity work, finger painting, biting their nails and Curb your Enthusiasm (and not necessarily in that order).

MASH (DJ)

Producer and DJ extraordinaire. Remixer of Peaches & Blondie. Favourite of Mylo, Freaks and Basement Jaxx. Deck sharer with Justin Robertson, Chemical Brothers & Erol Alkan,. DJed the world over from Brazil to Paris New York to Germany POW!

XX TEENS

"Catchy hook after hook of slick guitar riffs and witty drawled-out lyrics... 7/10" - The Guardian

"Cramps-esque horror punk... They're ace!" - NME

Tomorrow the bands kick off after 11.

Vetiver gig goers; You can get in for cheap to ACTH if you show your ticket stubb at the door or look out for the cheap passes doing the rounds on the night.
