Not long now til we can put all these announcements together to make a full line up. Lets be honest, even with 10 bands unveiled, it’s already better than Reading/Leeds.
Here we go.
WRINKLY KIDS – Ex Mannikin John/Islands Lost At Sea bloke Dan Lever makes his debut with his new band. Might be one of the big talking points of the fest. In a good way of course.
THEBROKENDOOR – We’ve asked TBD to try and better last years closing set. A tough ask but if anyone can rise to the challenge it’s this band. Brutal, bouncy, sample fuelled improve d and b. Prepare to be blown away all over again.
THE LOTTERY WINNERS – Absolutely dominating the NW unsigned scene, winners (natch) of many a competition, headliners of large Manchester venues and all round good eggs. It won’t be long til they’re playing Leeds/Reading or god forbid V fest. Monday, Monday, Monday.
TOTAL VICTORY – On the cusp of their second album release, Total Victory tread the Dogstock boards for the very first time. 2011 was a great year for TV and 2012 appears to be going the same way. See em late Saturday night.
PAULINE BLACKBURN - Lovely songwriter and singer of beautiful songs. Last seen at the Dog supporting Merry Hell.
Oh and tickets should be on sale from, and only, from the Dog the back end of next week.
