From Dive Dive's Tarrant:-

Basically the night came together because we met the Spill lot at Music Live at the Birmingham NEC at the end of last year, really got on with them, got talking about how we're always bored shiteless over Easter, and thought it would be great to do something like this. We've just backed London's Frank Turner on his first release since leaving Million Dead (an ep called Campfire Punkrock - release date 15th May 06, on Extra Mile). His solo material is great - its basically Billy Bragg updated for a new generation (www.frank-turner.com). This Town Needs Guns are a great up coming Oxford band who tread the territory between Yourcodenameis: Milo and Radiohead (www.thistownneedsguns.com). Sucioperro are from Glasgow. They're ace, have an album coming out on Captains of Industry later this year, and are a hot tip for the future (www.sucioperro.com).
