Graham Coxon

He played guitar for a little known band called Blur, no big deal hey. His solo material has ranged from all out guitar classics, to accomplished folk. Whichever Graham turns up, this is sure to be one of the events of the weekend!

Johnny Foreigner

Chaotic pop music for art students with punk hearts. Beautiful clash of clattering guitars and sweet harmonies trademark the electrifying alt rock sound of the midlands finest young band.

Dinosaur Pile-Up

DoesItRock favourites D P-U are bringing back the grunge with their cobainesque looks and sounds that do justice to the clout of the genre. Both melodic, heavy and have some damn infectious songs!

Weird and experimental electro beats line the Gallops instrumental track listings. Yet somehow their tunes are superb slices of soaring key tinkling and band backed melodies. A left field shout, who may just kick-ass live!
