••LITTLE DRAGON•• (Peacefrog / Sweden)
Aaaah! Is this the radioactive destructo-reptile Godzilla? The King of Monsters!? Nay, it’s Gothenburg’s biggest reptile: LITTLE DRAGON
...paddling over from Sweden to rape our dancing shoes and pillage our ear holes with beat-driving urbanized-countryside-style future-redefined-in-the-‘80s eclectic-electric RnB-soul-jazz.
It’s Swedish-Japanese singer Yukimi Nagano and her partially bearded compatriots! And they’re rising faster than radioactive lizard soufflé!
WHAT’s THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOU REED, SNOOP DOGG, DE LA SOUL, THE CLASH’s MICK JONES & PAUL SIMONON and LITTLE DRAGON??
Answer: Only LITTLE DRAGON appear TWICE on GORiLLAZ latest album!
...they will also be appearing TWICE in Manchester as they shall later return alongside Mr. Albarn’s cartooned clan.
...and have written a beautiful track called “TWICE” to celebrate these two facts!

••RIOT JAZZ QUARTET•• (Live double-double-barrelled jam session)
Downing a pot of fruit preserve on a rainy weekday is one type of jam session. This is another.
Born in the soil of KENDAL CALLING, like a northern, jazzy Uruk-Hai! The fiery beast is back by popularized demand.
Masters of the rolling wheels:
