TISCALI SHOWCASES are synonymous with providing a platform for breaking artists as well as bringing in the big names. May 2006 also sees the night hosting a selection of the greatest raw talent from the UK music scene and the highly regarded Zero 7 who will be playing a rare acoustic set ahead of their UK tour.
On MAY 19th the ethereal ZERO 7, bright young thing PAOLO NUTINI and the epic MODERN AMERICAN SCIENCE will play the ISLINGTON CARLING BAR ACADEMY.
Zero 7 took the UK by storm with their album When It Falls two years ago. Their new album The Garden is littered with a wealth of musical influences from jazz stylings to cinematic French electronica and nostalgic chamber pop. This promises to be one of Tiscali¹s performances of the year.
Paolo Nutini is a much-lauded young Scottish troubadour who is currently causing a stir with his debut single These Streets. This talented 19 year old is definitely worth catching in an intimate venue, he won¹t be playing gigs this small for long.
Modern American Science create soaring epics and have received the highest accolades by being compared to Bends-era Radiohead, The Smiths and Hope Of The States. Watch out for the A&R scrum!
