Some Choice Bands coming up at Radar -

September 25th;


Much hyped moody youngsters from London, pleasingly the singer sounds like Julian Cope, but the music is more in the vein of Echo & the Bunnymen, Interpol & Joy Divison.

Here is their first single

White Lies - Unfinished Business

Looks to be a busy one so get a ticket in advance from HERE

October 23rd


Awesome band from Toronto, Post-punk, but definitely not punk-funk which is refreshing, think The Fall/Pere Ubu/Wire... Great on record, but even better (and more intense) live. Listen:

The Creeping Nobodies - Blowing on Knots

This one'll be dead cheap to get in, so there's no excuse!

December 4th:

Vivian Girls

A long way away, but we are very excited about this one!
C86-channelling lo-fi noise-pop with all three singing a la classic girl groups. Some cool footage of them playing live on their blog.

Released their first self-titled album On In the Red which sold out (now being re-released.) and have sang backing vocals on a Fucked Up record - Who are also playing at The Bodega on November 14th.

Vivian Girls - Tell The World

Vivian Girls - Where Do You Run
