Chris Stein/Negative: Me, Blondie and The Advent of Punk

To mark Blondie's 40th anniversary, Somerset House present this mega show of previously unpublished photographs by Chris Stein, co-founder of the band. As well as featuring images of the chart-topping group in their early days and backstage on tour, Stein has selected other favourites from his archive including sultry snaps of David Bowie, The Ramones, Andy Warhol and other big names from the glittering, new wave world.

Independent Label Market and London Brewers' Market

  • Critics choice
  • Free

Vinyl buffs, rejoice: the Independent Label Market is back for its annual pre-Christmas sale. It’s a platform for nearly a hundred of the UK’s best independent record labels – including XL, 4AD, Domino, Mute and Hyperdub – to sell their wares directly to music lovers, and a chance for punters to get hold of some of the freshest LPs, CDs, tapes and merchandise, and hang out with the ever-friendly label staff and musicians who man the stalls. If the idea of an indie record

Little Dragon

  • Critics choice

The haunting and esoteric Swedish electro-pop four-piece headline, fronted by radiant vocalist Yukimi Nagano and drawing on Portishead, Prince and Depeche Mode. They're here to play from their incredible new album 'Nabuma Rubberband', which should get the crowd bumping and grinding in no time at all.

Bonobo

  • Critics choice

Simon Green, Ninja Tune’s psychedelic breaks guru, plays a huge gig at Ally Pally to round off a tour in support of his latest album ‘The North Borders’. If you missed Bonobo’s bliss-inducing spectacular at the Brixton Academy last year, put this one in your diary now.

Jools Holland And His Rhythm And Blues Orchestra

The former Squeeze keysman and amiable lord of 'Later…' returns for more boogie woogie action. Alongside regular Jools sidekicks Ruby Turner, Louise Marshall and Gilson Lavis, you can count on some big-name guest vocalists.

Morrissey

  • Critics choice

The Pope of Mope returns, trailing a new album ('World Peace Is None of Your Business') and a dark cloud. Moz's iconic miserablism won't have been relieved by a tough patch that's reportedly seen him dropped by his record label, but we've got our fingers crossed that he'll be on form for this London date. His workmanlike backing band will be helping him run through new songs alongside select cuts from a hefty and often captivating back catalogue, albeit with a noticeable dropping

The Fall

  • Critics choice

Few UK bands have carved a more inventive, original and fascinating path through music than Mark E Smith's enduring post-punk gang. Equally likely to be a shambolic disaster as an utterly compelling groove machine, they're known for changing line-up more often than the sharp-tongued, crumple-faced curmudgeon changes his socks. But the current incarnation – including two drummers – has been on great form, so assuming Smith doesn't fire everyone (aside from his wife,

Flight Facilities

Rolling into one Mylo-esque beats, ELO-styled vocals and super-cheesy lyrics ('You know that I am married and you are too, so I can't be seen with you'), Flight Facilities are an Australian duo who started out as indie DJs then went live. Unfortunately, they don't give out complimentary savoury snacks at their gigs.

Beardyman

  • Critics choice

The beatboxer extraordinaire and festival favourite brings his seemingly physically impossible vocal talents to the stage, where his oral creations work best. He’s just invented a new bit of software, the Beardytron 5000, to loop, sample and manipulate his hip hop, D&B and electro mouth-beats with even more precision and flexibility, and he’ll be showing it off tonight.

Parquet Courts

  • Critics choice

These Brooklyn-via-Texas alt rockers are almost single-handedly reinventing guitar music in the US – by which we mean doing the once-a-generation job of stripping it all back to something tight and brilliant. Don't miss them as they play from their incredible debut album 'Light Up Gold' and the follow-up 'Sunbathing Animal' in London.

Morcheeba

Once again fronted by their original vocalist Sky Edwards, the champions of coffee-table R&B – agreeable enough live, if decidedly unchallenging – return to air their sun-dapppled, laid-back beats and fuzzy psychedelia.

Marianne Faithfull

  • Critics choice

Gruff-voiced diva and counter-cultural British national treasure Faithfull draws from her 50-year recording career. She survived the ’60s and life with Jagger, a period spent living rough in Soho as a heroin addict, and successful surgery to treat breast cancer in 2006, proving that she's a tough woman as well as a casually charismatic perfomer.

Gary Numan

  • Critics choice

Despite his miserablism, his Bowie-aping and his right-wing tendencies, the Numanoid has long since been recognised as the godfather of electronica and the spiritual progenitor of Marilyn Manson. His latest 'Machine Music' tour plundered his whole 35-year discography. If you like synthesizers and songs about lonely robots and automobiles, you can't go wrong.

Perfume Genius

  • Critics choice

Supplementing gilded, affecting vocals with somnambulant piano lines and harmonies as fragile as butterfly wings, Perfume Genius (Mike Hadreas from Seattle) promises a magical live show with a pin-droppingly intimate atmosphere. He returns with an incredible new album called 'Too Bright', which adds pop nous to his delicate balladry. Don't miss him.
