The lineup for Tuesday 16th September, 2008 at Madame Jojo's, London is a White Heat classic.

Headlined by the enchanting Jonquil and fellow Oxford band This Town Needs Guns, this is a night out not to be missed! Acts also include Three Trapped Tigers and White Heat Djs Matty and Olly.

More about the bands:


An eclectic, experimental Oxford sextet.

"... a masterclass in how to purvey experimentalism without foregoing accessibility, and for that alone, Jonquil need to become huge" - Clash

"The times I've seen Jonquil play live, it's been in tiny, intimate venues in Oxford and they've inspired these mass singalongs each time ... it's pretty special to watch" - Yannis Philippakis (Foals)

"A host of beautiful Beirut-gone-English folk songs" - NME

"Beautiful weirdness" - Metro

"... a tranquil and soothing listen with moments of euphoric chanting and the wonderful lapping of shifting harmonies and textures, and ever present thrill" - Notion

This Town Needs Guns

This Town Needs Guns

Describing themselves as 'new guerilla folk' This Town Needs Guns specialise in intricate indie-rock that can recall everything from Seafood at their dynamic best to the grandiose noise mongering of Mogwai. Their album 'Animals' is out early October.

Three Trapped Tigers

Rising electronica stars led by composer/producer Tom Rogerson's burgeoning free jazz project.

Plus White Heat Djs Matty and Olly.
