The Just Joans
If the Just Joans were to be personified, they would a combination of early '60s Tom Courtenay and Stephen Patrick Morrissey, drinking Buckfast on a park bench in Motherwell. Indie pop legends in their own right, having played Popfests around they world (as well as being namechecked in Allo Darlin's "If Loneliness Was Art"), The Just Joans are a fantastic live act. Unfortunately, their live appearances round these parts are rare. Fortunately, we've got them this time for an Edinburgh launch of their new record "Buckfast Bottles In The Rain". It will be awesome.!050

The Spook School
Kieran from Unpop used to say that Edinburgh didn't have any indie pop bands apart from ballboy. What a misguided fool he is - apparently, there are several, one of whom are the excellent The Spook School. Fresh from their breakthrough appearance on the last Unpop tape (!), these poptastic kids will sweetly rock your world; if you haven't seen them live, now's your chance to redeem yourself.

The Hector Collectors
It might be almost a decade since The Hector Collectors played Edinburgh supporting Half Man Half Biscuit and they are not to be missed. Expect the finest ramshackle indie pop.
