Princess Pavilion/SW1 Productions presents

These brilliant pop indie punksters play their first Cornish show as part of a mammoth UK tour to promote their new album, Romance is Boring, due to be released in February '10.

The album also reveals the band's first experiments with brass and far wider instrumentation than they have employed before and according to the band is a record "about the death and decay of the human body, lost love, mental breakdown and football."

Taking a step up to the big league LC recently finished recording in the alt.rock capital of the world, Seattle. 'Romance is Boring' sees the band shed their twee indie-pop credentials in favour of much bigger riff-led rock. Despite their impending rock star status the band still insure us that their lo-fi indie approach will not be lost.

Supports: Swanton Blues + Islet
London band Swanton Bombs are Dominic McGuinness (Eugene's bro) and Brendon Heaney. SB have an air of the raw garage-blues ethic that The White Stripes popularised in the earlier years of the last decade but with a clever mix of the likes of Mystery Jets. Songs like 'Turnstile' is more reminiscent of the harmonies and melodies of the new age Mystery Jets. Put it this way, this isn't indie by numbers. And if you're going to pick two bands to emulate then those two aren't half bad.

Opening proceedings on the night will be Islet. Islet are somewhat of a Cardiff super group made up of ex members of the like of The Victorian English Gentleman's Club and have been gigging around Cardiff for the past few months and wowing crowds with their skuzzy no-wave sounds. Shunning the internet by having no Myspace/Facebook profiles Islet are an unknown commodity. If we go about this the old fashioned way and go on word of mouth then we are most definitely in for a treat.
