Then on Sunday we have THE BARBS & THE ROCKS @ Twelve Festival, June 6th, Jabez Clegg.

This month's Twelve Fest features 2 of London's hotly tipped acts as they make rare appearances north of Watford. Well worth checking out coz next time it wont be £2 in !!

THE ROCKS : London garage rockers The Rocks dare to mention Sinatra, The Misfits and 'Miss You' by Rolling Stones influences. It is sleazy, glamourous post-punk rock, a sort of Vibrators meets Magazine. (Scratchy Records, www.therocks.org.uk)

THE BARBS : The Barbs, fronted by gorgeous Australian Amy, have established themselves as ones to watch, and a thrilling live band, in the great tradition of the Pixies and the Blues Explosion. (Mother Tongue, www.thebarbs.co.uk)

£3 before 5pm, £4 after. Vman discount : email me to be added to the “£2 before 5pm guestlist”


The details of the next gREAT wHITE cHOCOLATE dEBATE have been confirmed ! The event takes place on the same night as the England vs Switzerland match, so we are billing it as the “ENGLAND VICTORY PARTY ” !! The match will be shown downstairs at Jabez Clegg, kick off 5.45pm, and therefore doing the maths, the match will finish around when doors open upstairs !! Beer £1.50, cheap doubles, and quality live music : what more do you want to celebrate England winning ? (fingers crossed)

Thur, June 17th @ Jabez Clegg. tHE gREAT wHITE cHOCOLATE dEBAte presents:

Karmakops – “As tunefully raucous as early Supergrass, Karmakops are an essential new British band ” Drowned in Sound

Half Cousin – * Vman's Ones to Watch * – Zane Lowe and Xfm are already huge fans. “As darkly rustic as Tom Waits and creates an alternative universe as magical as that or Grandaddy or Arab Strat ” I-D Magazine. (Gronland Records, www.halfcousin.com)

The Deadbeats – featuring Sam Hammond. Hillbilly rocknroll – Good time music, barnyard blues and dirty shoes.

Change the Channel – a healthy dosage of rock, hip-hop, beats and bombs all rolled-up tightly with a potentially massive commercial edge.
