Gallon Drunk + Underground Railroad

Critics' choice
Brilliant, swampy punky funketeers in the headline slot, their sexily snarling and noir-ish sounds having been a highlight on London's underground scene throughout the '90s. Here still led by onetime Bad Seeds member James Johnston and drawing from their quality, six-album back catalogue. French trio UR play their Sonic Youth-inspired, post-grunge-pop to open proceedings.
