Bands including Razorlight and Klaxons have paid tribute to a legendary music venue that hosted early gigs by Oasis, Suede and Coldplay.

The Joiners in Southampton, which has been a fixture on the national gig circuit since the 1960s, is now being celebrated in a BBC documentary.

First hosting live music in 1968, the venue has also seen live appearances from Radiohead, Manic Street Preachers and The Libertines.

Klaxons bassist and singer Jamie Reynolds grew up in the area and has been performing at The Joiners since the age of 14. The band even played a warm-up show for the Shockwaves NME Awards Indie Rave Tour at the venue last week (January 30).

The programme is broadcast on BBC One South’s ‘Inside Out’ on February 9 at 7.30pm (the region can be accessed nationally via digital receivers).
