The Cribs have spoken to NME about how much they're looking forward to their slot at this year's Camden Crawl.

The Wakefield trio, who will release their fifth album 'In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull' in May, will also play the North London event next month (May 4–6). The band's bassist and vocalist Gary Jarman told NME that Camden means a lot to the trio because:

The first show that we ever played outside of Wakefield was in Camden. We played at The Barfly. We got signed that very night... We played a pretty ramshackle gig at The Barfly, but we got signed outside right there and then.


The Cribs also recorded their second album, 2005's 'The New Fellas', in nearby West Heath studios and "we'd come down to Camden every night. I really feel like not so much London, but Camden specifically had a real influence on that album." When recording the album, the band would frequent nights put on by DJ duo Queens of Noize as well as legendary after hours kebab shop The Marathon. "I took Modest Mouse there and they loved it," said Gary of the venue, which was also a favourite of Amy Winehouse and Jack White.

"I like to play places with a bit of history," added Gary, of their upcoming Camden Crawl show, which is set to take place at KOKO, which, much to the band's excitement the first time they played the venue, was where "heroes" Richard Hell & The Voidoids played their first UK show.

In terms of a possible setlist for the Camden show, Gary commented: "The only thing that excites or interests me is playing the new stuff – [but] we've also been enjoying playing old songs at the minute."

As well as The Cribs, Spector, Dan Mangan, Francois And The Atlas Mountains and Clock Opera have recently been added to the urban festival line-up. They join The Futureheads, The Big Pink, Glasvegas and former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes, who are among the acts already confirmed for this year's bash.

The Cribs are also among the bands playing an intimate hometown show as part of JD Roots, who have partnered with NME to support local music and search for Britain's Best Small Venue. The band will play Wakefield's Theatre Royal on May 16, with The Horrors returning to Southend Chinnerys on May 9 and Scottish rockers Twin Atlantic playing Glasgow's King Tut's on May 3.
