You know what time it is? It's ATP time, which means another influx of supremely talented and exciting bands from across the globe descending on Butlins for the bi-annual noise-fest.

One of the highlights from May's shindig were San Franciscan psych-rockers Sleepy Sun, who hit the UK next week, playing Manchester's Retro Bar on 8th December and London's Garage on the 9th before heading down to a grim chalet in Minehead for four consecutive performances at the second weekend (10th - 13th).
