SUE DENIM

(ROBOTS IN DISGUISE)

ELLIE MAKES MUSIC / CATRIN DAVIES

8pm £6 adv / £8 doors SUE DENIM is bringing her lovely pop sounds to 10 Feet – her new solo album ‘And The Unicorn’ has just been released following single ‘Bicycle’. Recorded & co-produced in North Wales with DAVID WRENCH, it presents simple honest tracks that are less typical singer-songwriter and more nostalgic pop – sometimes reminiscent of a female SYD BARRETT, JONATHAN RICHMAN or KEVIN AYERS. Having had plenty of electro fun with ROBOTS IN DISGUISE as well as acting in cult TV series THE MIGHTY BOOSH – she’s now swapped the synths for seagull cries, drum machines for toy drums, and a warm, dreamy and sometimes poignant celebration of life, love, books, bicycles and boys on film - based around acoustic guitar & piano, then with added electric guitars, massed percussion, layered harmonies and field recordings. soundcloud.com/suedenim

He’s wowed at major festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival, Latitude and V, and is most known for his catchy hip-hop/indie crossover single ‘I Want You Around’ which was Single of the Week on 6 Music. “the people of Britain may not know it yet but Gideon Conn is one of their national treasures” – Scroobius Pip gideonconn.com

His sound is characterised by a hypnotic collage of short cut-up samples over swung US GARAGE beats and lively DISCO-flavoured bass lines. Credited as one of the godfathers of UK SPEED GARAGE, he’s been an example of artists including BURIAL, MJ COLE and his recent BOILER ROOM mix was first class! Supported by arguably Cardiff’s biggest movers and shakers in the underground HOUSE and GARAGE scene CRST and THE ORGANGRINDER. Missing this is not an option. soundcloud.com/todd-edwards

She’s played The Great Escape, Isle Of Wight and Wychwood festivals, along with Music Week’s monthly industry showcase ‘Breakout’. Haunting vocals, oozing with the pain of heartache, beautifully humble production and a storming live presence. “With references to DUSTY SPRINGFIELD via DUFFY, this budding singer is well worth keeping an ear on” – BBC Introducing. jazzmorley.co.uk 20

AMeN DuNeS & support

8pm £tbc The solo project of Damon McMahon began in 2006 as personal recordings he never intended to release, however in 2009 he moved back to the States from China and formed a band around AMEN DUNES. Muffled, eerie pop akin to SYD BARRETT and SKIP SPENCE mixed with THE VELVET UNDERGROUND. Filled with downbeat subtlety, blending classic melody and fuzzy obscurity – do not miss this rare show!

uNDerGrOuND herOeS The LAy-LOWS / SuNShINe rIOT

8pm £5 adv / £6 doors Gritty, grimey punk singing about their chavvy mates and nights out – UNDERGROUND HEROES are not too dis-similar from their own heroes and influences such as THE CLASH, THE JAM and THE SPECIALS. They’ve played various festivals, IBIZA ROCKS with THE VIEW and THE AUTOMATIC and shows with THE CRIBS. They’re planning bigger and better things for this year – more gigs, more sweat, more songs, more blood and loads more rock’n’roll! “straightforward, Jam-style sweary, fag-chuffing brilliance”. facebook.com/undergroundheroes www.undertonecardiff.com

F.A.O. feat. ELIPHINO

9pm-4am £8 adv residentadvisor.net Like many producers, Tom Wrankmore (ELIPHINO) took to beatmaking at a young age – his first productions were influenced by hip-hop, garnering comparisons to MADLIB. Now based in London, he’s broadened his sound palette and works with HOUSE and GARAGE, remixing a wide range of artists. DJ sets are eclectic incorporating sounds from HIP HOP to RNB, DANCEHALL and JUNGLE. facebook.com/eliphinobeats soundcloud.com/eliphino

CHAINS OF LOVE TOTEM TERRORS / TENDER PREY / GAS STATION BOP DJS

8pm £5 adv / £6 doors CHAINS OF LOVE embrace Wall-Of-Sound reverb and classic RONETTES/SPECTOR harmonies throughout. Referencing IKE & TINA and THE SHANGRI-LAS, combined with modern garage rock, a modern viewpoint and their lo-fi recordings - they bridge the gap between nostalgic 60s pop with a modern and elegant twist. facebook.com/chainsofloveband
