KEITH TOP OF THE POPS BAND + BLINDNESS + DESPERATE JOURNALIST

I reckon this gig will be good fun. Three quite different sounds. No idea what we are going to get with the head-liner but it'll be entertaining I'm sure.

Keith Top of the Pops Band
This should be an interesting one. Apparently "Keith would book gigs, and then call all his friends who were in bands the morning of the gig, and see who was interested in joining him on stage. With varying band members, this meant only one thing -- every gig was unique because it had a varying line-up and different songs. Sometimes there were only two members, and other times there could be as many as 24 band members on stage (including 17 electric guitars and a brass section).

The only rules of the band are "No Rehearsals" and "No Soundchecks," as Keith believes most bands fight in rehearsal rooms, and soundchecks are pretty pointless with the amount of amps they use."

Blindness
London electro-filth... Explosive, emotive, sonic rock and roll against a backdrop of feedback, emotion and white noise. Taking the sonic tips and trips of The Jesus & Mary Chain and MBV the diversity and verve of Nine Inch Nails, the added hooks and emotiveness of PJ Harvey, BLiNDNESS show an ‘exquisite warmth’ to their "seductive dark wave electro pop’

Desperate Journalist
This is probably the band I've listened to the most. Vocals sound somewhere between Nico and PJ Harvey. Definitely a post punk vibe going on here (think Smiths / Cure kind of sound).

    Hey Guys,
