The Ordinary Boys, Eastern Lane and The Subways (February 13)
LCD Soundsystem, Soulwax, The Go! Team, Juliette and the Licks (14)
Hope of the States, Sons and Daughters, The Bravery, Willy Mason (15)
The Tears, The Magic Numbers, The Dead 60s, Nine Black Alps (16)

I know nme is the sperm of the devil on this site but there are some good bands mixed in there. Heard loads of good things about The Magic Numbers and Nine Black Alps. The Go! Team live could be a winner too.

The Ordinary Boys, never has a band had a more apt name.

The Dead 60s are good though, a bit like Ghost Town meets London Calling.

The Magic Numbers are great, I've ssen them a few times now and all their songs are so immediate and recognisable and somehow manage to sound sound fresh and new.

I just hope they dont turn into some hideous dawsons creek soundtrack but it seems they have good grounding so hopefully it'll be alright.

They said that Keane were tiresome and should try a bit harder, yes Keane are an easy target but its nice when bands put them down, unless its The god awful Darkness making the comments.

It should be every band's and music fan's duty to put down Keane until they are Clearasiled off the face of the music scene.

In my humble opinion.

The Subways are great too! I'm catching the Go Team next month at the 100 Club which will be better surroundings than theAstoria. A few of the others are interesting but I begrudge paying £18 to see them in a large hall when they'll be a fraction of that in somewhere better like the Barfly or wherever a few weeks later.

And under no circumstances would I see the Ordinary Boys again (or Butler and Anderson under any name).

I saw The Go! team last week in Brighton and it cost me £3.50!!! (They were fantastic by the way!)

Am seeing Sons & Daughters tonight supporting The Futureheads (Brighton Concorde)

They're a bit like mini festivals these gigs aren't they, one or two bands on each night you really want to see.

True but £18 for 1 decent band is poop.

What do the Go! Team do live? Is it 1 guy with backing tapes or does he have girl MCs etc?

Saw Sons & Daughters support Delgados at Shep Bush Empire, was really unimpressed with them, distinctly ordinary I thought.

Seen em a few times at the Barfly and at Truck Fest and I thought they were brilliant - very dirty mix of punk, country, blues and folk. Maybe it's the venue.

There are odd bands on there that are good (but not in that venue) but the only decent line up is the 16th, excepting the Tears who are going to be dull. I'll stand at the back and laugh at all the cross-dressing teenagers crying at their heroes.

I saw them in Whelan's in Dublin only last week and they were superb. Someone should have written a review of it, come to think of it.

Not at all, it's a band of six people, 3 girls and 3 boys, playing drums, guitars, recorder, harmonica etc then there's this really cute girl MC called 'Ninja'. They're much more a live band than you would expect, I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

I did say to JA that I would attempt a review but I'm a little worried that my writing skills aren't going to meet Soundsxp's exacting standards.

Just send a naked photo of the writer with the article and it'll be printed. Works for Enid every time!

Great band. Can't wait till they finally release an album. Sucks that they have to open for Kasabian, though. They're shit.
