Event details: LORDS
When Lords formed in 2003 their mission, if they really had one, was simply to rebel against the trend for angst and catharsis in punk rock and return to playing music that allowed for communal release and a collective party experience for both band and audience. Simply put, like ZZ Top with Elvin Jones on drums - good vibes played at high volume. Eschewing the traditional guitar-bass-drums format for a power trio, Lords deploy secret ampage to fashion the bottom end of a volley of basses from two conventional guitars, with a cataclysm of drummery sending the whole shebang into 100% party territory. Debut LP "This Ain't A Hate Thing, It's A Love Thing" came out in 2006 to great acclaim and follow-up "Everyone Is People" is due to be released at the beginning of Oct this year. Expect a combination of stupid music done clever and clever music done stupid.

Super-heavy hooks from the heart of the Fens. Somewhere between bad milk and good sex - 3 long riffs played through an amp on its edge being pounded by drums and splendid chimes. Formerly known as Righteous Bastards, Blaklava are Tony Martin's favourite band.

Histon's C. Joynes is a master of heavy thumb-led finger-picking techniques that hark back to traditional country-blues, early ragtime, English folk-tune, North and West African music and elements of classical Indian music. Tonight, however, Joynes goes HEAVY, plugging into electricity for, possibly, the first time in public. The results will, inevitably, cause lasting effects on the parietal cortex.
