Freak Of The Week, Galatos Basement's regular carnival of musical delinquents and sideshow freaks, in conjunction with MUZAI Records bring together three label mates and a mistress on the side with the January 14th "MUZAI Especiale".

Not content with four bands, MUZAI Records celebrates the release of China duo Pairs EP by holding a show almost in their honour - having not been seized for potential Contact MT shipments, we're giving copies away on the night with door entry. Seriously.

Heading into 2011 with their follow up to "I'm Sparklers" ready to be released in February, Sherpa's emboldened four piece (meaning they've added a new guitarist in other words) are moving away from their power-pop origins to something more refined and dare we say it, mature. After all, they're growing up - you can't blame them.

Kitsunegari pretty much have been owning the audiences who have come to see them. It's no longer a case also of being an "all ages" band - there are no gimmicks with this (super, cough) group at all; loud, aggressive and much more older than you'd probably expect it to be. The "Alles Gute..." EP very much demonstrated that.

After being announced as a MUZAI band upon the release of "F**k These Bands 3" and solid outings at Nocturnal Collections #1 and Around The Wireless, Sidewalk Meese's pop twinged college rock (insert band referential points here) has been well received by audience and radio alike - "Soda" is teeth-rotting addictive and their live sets continue their overall charm offensive.

And we're happy to have good friends Milkshake Cowboyz join us on this merry occasion. The noisy, caustic two piece manage to be both challenging and yet as the same time charismatic with their no-bullsh*t war on "the norm". Just don't call them avante-garde.
