Featuring

Frankie & The Heartstrings

Frankie & The Heartstrings appearing at this event

North East indie five-piece, led by former Sunderland pub landlord Frankie Francis, who formed over a mutual love of the Housemartins and the Smiths. Think of these classic bands, combined with influences ranging from Orange Juice to Dexys Midnight Runners, Bobby Conn and Billy Childish, then add the Sunderland accents of the Futureheads or Maximo Park. Finally, complete with a hair quiff modelled on James Dean, some quivering hips and a gyrating bottom, and you've got The Heartstrings.

Johnny Foreigner

Johnny Foreigner appearing at this event

Boy-girl yelpy vocals, busted up charity shop kids keyboards and Sonic Youth steam-train guitars' - The Fly. 'Wielding Pavement-esque spec-rock as artfully as they siphon Pixies' eyeball-splitting roar. They're simply sticking up two fists at the bore-rock masses' - NME.

Shiners

Shiners appearing at this event

Shiners grew up at the height of Britpop with their parents' New Wave records on repeat. Although still learning to talk at the time, it had a lasting effect; the impact of these genres has created the sound that Shiners dub 'Britwave'. Shiners channel the angst and aggression of bands like The Stranglers and Elvis Costello with observational lyrics about the modern world – a world they're not always thrilled to be living in.
