Sleaford Mods // The Sugarmill, Stoke
If you imagine The Streets meeting Kasabian in a dark alley and having a fist fight, being broken up by Paul Weller and having a meeting with the Macc Lads afterwards, that's kind of the vibe I get from Sleaford Mods. They have pretty shit hair cuts, but their raw punk-hip hop-too old to be this angry songs are something kind of intriguing. I feel like I need to see them live to find out what the hell is going on. I do quite like when music is so unpolished and has that dirty, grimy under produced sound to it and if you're in to that kind of thing, you'll probably like these too.

Peter Hook The Light // Various places apart from the bloody UK.
Obviously a complete dream on the GWISHT, but seriously, Peter Hook & The Light's are to tour the Southern States of The US performing Joy Division's 'Unknown Pleasures' and 'Closer' live. And how frigging amazing would that be to see. Peter Hook was the bassist for Joy Division and went on to form New Order with the remaining members of the band after the passing of Ian Curtis (like I'd need to tell you that though, huh?). This tour is a chance to see something which my generation never got the chance to see performed live and it's definitely one to catch if they ever come back to the UK again.
