Huw Costin
Once of the glorious and critically acclaimed Earth the California Love Dream, Huw Costin will be delivering his trademark beautiful and emotional songs written for the mystified and broken hearted after the release of his album Regrets last year (4 stars in UNCUT).

Earth The Californian Love Dream came to life in the summer of 2002 when the wreckage of Manatee began jamming with the renowned Sam Hempton of Six by Seven fame. John Peel was sent some of their material, and ‘bigged’ them up on national radio during ‘One Live in Nottingham’. This lead to a celebrated performance at the Queens of the Stone Age/Black Rebel Motorcycle Club aftershow party at The Social.

Frontman Huw Costin on ETCLD: “We make music to affect you. Songs for you to sing that sound as gorgeous as terrifying. We like love and hate wrapped up in a neat little chorus. Our music is the most important thing in the world and we recognise the tragedy and sing about it…”

Napolean IIIrd
A real coup for Nottingham, with Napolean IIIrd’s album launch in London just 6 days earlier, be the first to see songs from the much anticipated album Christiania performed.

Napoleon IIIrd has had a busy few years even whilst writing: he toured Europe and the UK with acts as diverse as Wild Beasts and Yo! Majesty, formed part of Damo Suzuki’s backing band, played guitar in new Bella Union signings Lone Wolf, performed at a host of large-scale shows and festivals including Club NME @ Koko, Reading and Leeds, Xbox Live, End Of The Road, Moor, Woolfire and Truck. All this while finding time to write and record the album that many will consider his magnum opus.

“One of the most visionary artists in the world today.” - Drowned In Sound
