Over the years, Supergrass released a total of six studio albums, and a collection of classic singles including Caught By The Fuzz, Richard III, Alright, Moving and Pumping On Your Stereo securing their place in Britpop history. After 17 years together, the band decided to go their separate ways following a farewell tour in 2010.

Taking their name from the Morrissey song, The Ordinary Boys' story began in Worthing in 2001 where they formed from the embers of punk bands that they had been playing in. The band became the darlings of the media in 2006 when singer Preston appeared on Celebrity Big Brother. Influenced by the Mod revival and Britpop music, as well as bands like Madness, The Specials, The Kinks and The Smiths, the band are probably best known for their 2005 single 'Boys Will Be Boys', which reached number three on the UK charts.
The Ordinary Boys tour dates
Mexican-born guitar virtuosos playing a unique mix of Latin rhythms, Celtic lyricism, jazz, pop and the odd heavy metal riff.
Rodrigo Y Gabriela tour dates
Brooklyn based five-piece making blues-laden geek-rock for the 21st century. Although The Hold Steady's sound will probably appeal to fans of older bands such as Eels, Ben Folds and The Lemonheads, their sound is bang-up-to-date.
The Hold Steady tour dates
Cornish four piece Thirteen Senses’ influences range from The Beatles and Pink Floyd to The Flaming Lips and Sigur Ros. Blending the epic splendor of the Doves with the fragile abstraction of The Delays, Thirteen Senses create grand music with moments of clarity and tenderness.
