No mere flash in the pan

the focus will be on Flashguns tonight, when the two-parts-London, two-parts-Brighton indie rockers are at The Hop.

Inspired by the likes of The Cure, and Talking Heads, a couple of demos saw them snapped up by Rough Trade to record their first single, with Bernard Butler on production duties.

Support comes from a distinctly local triumvirate of Imp, The Finnlys and The Fur Blend, with doors at 8pm and admission £4.

Tomorrow night sees one of Wakefield’s hidden gems on show, when Piskie Sits continue the lo-fi charm offensive that picks up fans wherever they go.

They’re supported by Pilots, The Bambinos and Penguin, with doors at 8pm and £3 entry.

l It should be quite an occasion on April 22, when 6Music and one-time Radio 1 DJ, Marc Riley, will be providing the tunes after the Metronomy gig that night. Tickets are already on sale from The Hop, Crash and Jumbo Records, or www.tick
