Fred Perry SubSonic Live in April played host to one of its most bombastic shows to date, with Greg Wilson and Afrika Bambaataa stepping behind the turntables. Next month, the legendary Islington Garage opens it doors

to Chew Lips. Having received huge critical praise within an inordinately small space of time, Chew Lips are an indie-pop collective with real clout! Riding the wave of positive momentum, their sophomore LP is laced with smartly sung vocals, and sharp melodies. On a visual level, the band are famed for their electric live shows so expect a main-stage performance bursting with energy, as these purveyors of ‘classic future pop’ show us how it’s done!
Supporting are leftfield four-piece Fiction. Having recently completed a successful tour with Klaxons and Warpaint, this collective is stealing plaudits with their strain of ‘anarchic pop’. With a solid stable of singles in their catalogue, they have recorded fiery live sessions for BBC Radio1, BBC 6Music and Xfm. With a penchant for well-executed percussion and disarming harmonies this gang of musically educated rebels deliver every time.
Also on the main-stage are I Am A Camera - easily one of the most exciting things to be happening in today’s electronic music scene. Comprised of Mancunian Francesca, and Londoner Ian; the duo are shaping up to be an irrepressible sonic force. Their mix of Lana Del Ray’s ‘Born To Die’ set them on their way. United by their shared love of Spike Jonze and John Carpenter to HAL from “Space Odyssey:2001” and “60 Minute Makeover”, the band bring their unique style of UK electronica to The Garage.
Keeping the main-room rocking ‘til the small hours will be Princess Julia and The Lovely Jonjo. Gaining recognition in the latter part of the 80s, Princess Julia has become synonymous with the Blitz Kids era of club music. Armed to the teeth with a host of tasty re-edits, she’ll let the turntables do the talking as she raises the temperature to fever pitch.
The Lovely Jonjo has been Djing for 8 years, and started off as part of the team behind London’s legendry indie club Trash. Currently the resident DJ at Punk Wears Prada, Milan; he is very much a stalwart of the international club scene. Refusing to confine himself to a glamorous European lifestyle, he makes regular appearances at London’s Fabric.
The Legends Room - White Heat take over the Loft all night.
Discovery Room - The Fly magazine will be hosting in the bar.
