The trio of big names join the likes of Stereophonics and Placebo at the bash in memory of 'plugger' Scott Piering...

Pulp, Teenage Fanclub and CERYS MATTHEWS are the latest names to be added to a charity benefit show in LONDON’s SCALA on April 18, NME.COM can reveal.

They join Stereophonics, Embrace and Placebo, who are already confirmed for the 700-capacity fundraiser for the Marie Curie Cancer Care. Each band will play a 20-minute set. The show is in memory of the late Scott Piering, a legendary radio and TV ‘plugger’ who worked all the bands on the bills before his premature death from cancer in 2000.

The brainchild of David Steele, boss of V2 Records and Danny O’Connor of BBC Radio 1, the show is intended to be a memorial to “a truly unique man”.
