Gig: These New Puritans @ White Heat, Madam Jo-Jo's, London (Tonight!)
Featured in the new issue of Dummy, These New Puritans are described in the mag as 'The Fall meets grime and history' (which sounds pretty cool) but also have the look and feel of a band that has a decent amount of respect for Joy Division. They're pretentious - a million miles away from the pub rock of the likes of The Pigeon Detectives, Kaiser Chiefs, Fratellis, The View - but carry it well and so far show no signs of bothering the Radio One playlist which makes them all the more interesting. Playing White Heat tonight - the best little club night in London - this feels like it will be one of those right place, right time kind of gigs.
