Experimental popsters Fixers carry on despite having forgotten all their gear apart from some drum sticks.
Malin from Niki And The Dove treated KOKO to a run through of their electro goth hits including ‘DJ, Ease My Mind’ and ‘Tomorrow’.
Eugene McGuiness’ new look surprised many at KOKO, not least of all Alex Turner who was gutted to have been beaten in the Who Looks More Like Fonzie? competition.
“Hi we’re Glasvegas,” Spector’s Fred Macpherson told the crowd at KOKO. Oh, you wag, you!
Tom Dougall from Toy was determined to keep his fringe long so he could continue hiding from former bandmate Joe Lean.
Leeds’ Hawk Eyes played tracks from their new album ‘Ideas’ for the crowd at KOKO.
Johnny Foreigner played Camden’s Wheelbarrow pub on Sunday, We Are Physics joined them for their final track.
Futureheads played an experimental set in the spirit of their album ‘Rant’. They included a version of Kelis’ ‘Acapella’ and a banjo led version their own take on ‘Hounds Of Love’.
Although you can’t see it, hidden in Barry Hyde’s hand is a massive tuning fork, Ross was “a bit pitchy,” during ‘Decent Days And Nights’.
