They will be one of the first bands to perform at the recently refurbished Unity Hall when they take to the stage there tonight.

The Netherton-born brothers, twins Gary and Ryan Jarman, and younger sibling Ross, will also perform an under 18s matinee and family gig.

Bassist Gary said: “The first and only time we ever went to Unity Hall was around Christmas ‘94 for a show featuring our guitar teacher’s band, Skint.

“Retarded Fish were also on the bill. We went upstairs, and were excited to see our first gig - until we got kicked out for being underage.

“That is why we are psyched to be playing an all-ages ‘underage’ matinee show there too - to make sure that no-one else has that feeling of rejection!”

This year’s Long Division line-up has more bands and venues than ever before, with more than 80 local performers and touring artists playing at Saturday’s day-long music event.

Headliners include Slow Club, Gruff Rhys, I Like Trains. The Wedding Present, Clown and Islet. Saturday’s line-up also features an under 18s stage at The Orangery.

A free fringe festival will run throughout Sunday with 21 arts and cultural events and workshops across the city.

Higlights include a live album recording, discussion panels with industry experts about how to move forward in a career in music and variety performances.
