With a voice set to stun and a gift for interpretation that is second to none, Amelia Coburn spends every spare moment rifling through records and filtering the findings through her punky ukulele playing to wow audiences across the North East and increasingly beyond. Think Eva Cassidy if she had spent the whole of 1976 in CBGBs. To categorise what she plays would be futile but her main influences range from classic, sophisticated pop/rock (David Bowie, Kate Bush, early Elton John) through to Punk, New Wave and the first wave of Indie music (The Smiths, The Jam, Blondie) but she is constantly seeking out hidden gems to drop like bombs on her audiences.

A band from Silvi from Mikrofisch. Chorusgirl is a more jangly indie guitar-based project than the electropop of Mikrofisch.

Indie rock band favoured by John Peel. While comparisons with Catatonia are inevitable, Welsh indie pop band Melys plough a more graceful, measured furrow, producing a sound like St. Etienne but with tougher guitars.

Lead singer and songwriter from Stourbridge indie-rockers The Wonder Stuff, Miles started his solo career after the band split in 1994. The Stuffies re-formed in 2000, and Miles has continued to tour as both a solo artist as well as with the band. Known for his dry wit as well as his songwriting talents, expect some banter, new songs and acoustic versions of one or two Wonder Stuff favourites.

The Catenary Wires
The Catenary Wires were formed in 2014 when Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey (Talulah Gosh, Heavenly, Tender Trap) moved out of London. They started playing songs on their daughter's 3/4 size acoustic guitar, and are still refusing to give it back. The Catenary Wires function as a simple two-piece, but will often feature guest musicians when playing live. Their songs are quiet and (mostly) sad.

Probably best known for their 1988 top 5 hit 'Crash', The Primitives reunited in their hometown of Coventry at the end of 2009, to pay homage to Steve Dullaghan, the group's original bassist. The success of their performance and the public's positive response after more than 17 years away from the spotlight led them to do a UK tour in April 2010 and to play a few shows in Europe and the US. In 2012 they released the album 'Echoes and Rhymes', which ranged from garage to psychedelia, with touches of soul and sunshine pop, as multiple styles came together in a special compilation of obscure female-fronted songs from the Sixties, revisited with all the love and affection and energy of The Primitives.

Has the bizarre ever birthed such talent? An offshoot of indie fuzz-rocksters The Wedding Present (which started as them doing a session for John Peel in Ukrainian as a joke), the Ukrainians are now an established outfit in their own right. With a growing audience here and a large following in Europe (including the Ukraine), their blend of Ukrainian folk and western rock is spellbinding.

With his flat cap, florid blouse and fidgety nervous energy pitched somewhere between Andy Warhol and Jarvis Cocker, there's an anarchic elegance to Vinny Peculiar which is both at once both thrilling and faintly unsettling. Storming through a set of oblique, tortured punk poetry, he wins over an initially skeptical crowd with his animated delivery and taut, frenetic pop hooks. Channelling all that eccentricity and barbed wit into something strangely compelling Vinny Peculiar is the sort of unlikely, heroic pop star they just don't seem to make anymore.
