    Star & Garter, Manchester (15 Jul 2005)
    Back for another double dose of bad punnage where scruffy indie disco meets glam glitch grime fest Indigo vs Kiss My Haç return to the Star Garter

    Upstairs Indigo will be pulling off one of their favourite feats and digging out one of those bands that you'd long forgotten about and dragging them back onstage. This time it's the turn of S*M*A*S*H, who back in the shiny happy days of Britpop in the mid-nineties were leading lights on the short-lived, but pleasingly grubby New Wave Of New Wave scene.

    Not ones to be afraid of contrast, we welcome kings of the synth Beats For Beginners to join the party. The thread running through this line-up is a no holds barred punk ethic, but BFB take that ethic, drag it to the disco and force it to dance.

    Also joining the fray are Mcr's premier dirty punk boys and girl, Hooker. Fresh from supporting Television, expect 2-minute, 2-chord grrl-pop killers and some creepily telepathic almost-synchronised rock moves from these good eggs.

    Even when all that's done with it still won't be time to go home, resident Indigo DJs M & F will carry on playing every kind of pop, rock and noisy record they can find until we get thrown out at 2:30.

    And for those who like dancing like palsy-addled robots, downstairs all night plays host to Kic My Hac. Go crazy to the non-stop electro / girly poppy / grimey / glitchy party excitement provided by National Forest, Mildred Hubble and David Crayon, or sit back and have a fit courtesy of a £25 HIRED FLASHING LIGHT SYSTEM. Or decide all this modern boom-boom-boom rubbish isn't for you and go have a quiet sherry by the pool table, you tiresome bore!
