Bagrec - Richard Sanderson, former presenter and organiser of cult club Baggage Reclaim and co-director of the London Music Collective, tonight brings you elements of his soundscape works along with a set of sharp witty offbeat pop. Be amazed!

JOE's Comforters - Avant rockers return after a long absence with a new line-up led by your host (drums/vox/guitar) with Andy Coules on guitar and keyboards, and Charlie Bird on bass. 'Enigmatically complex yet sturdy neo-pop constructions...Mark Braby's topsy-turvy angular pop ensemble...restless, inventive and robust' - Baggage Reclaim.

Stars In Battledress - Richard and James Larcombe bring you piano based songs of beauty with a pastoral feel, expect complexity and great melody. Their fine new CD, produced by Tim Smith of Cardiacs, will hopefully be out soon.

Leisur::Hive - Their post punk abrasive tones are reminiscent of 70's Wire and late Swans, expect a performance of intensity with dark rhythms and focused energetic power.
