For something completely different Birmingham new wave/ apocalyptic punkers Dissident Prophet formed and got signed after their second gig back in 1993 although at the time they had no name. Since then they've produced six albums with influences ranging from Lou Reed, Crowded House, The Stooges, Talking Heads, Bowie and 70's band Lamb. The DP's have a unique sound interwoven with liberal amounts of folk, rockabilly and punk. Their latest album Strange Days has just recently been released.
Support is from ex- Duran Duran, Andy Wicket and his band World Service who will be playing old and new material from their recent release Creatures of Love. Andy is one of Birmingham's finest songwriters.
