  1. So, the days are getting shorter, the nights are drawing in, it's starting to get really very cold, the shops are getting busier…but fear not, Supernight has exactly the dose of electric spazzrock treatment to grab those winter blues by the neck and to shout very loudly in their faces. Join us at Junktion 7 in Nottingham on Friday 23rd November to see some of the dirtiest, noisiest, most riotously entertaining oiks we could round-up do what they do best - have a blinding rock & roll party. Yes, for just £3 you can savour the following filthy treats: CUBAN CRIMEWAVE Party-stomping twin bass slinging satanic cinemascope movie soundtracks for 1920's Cuban gangs. Think Death From Above 1979, think The Stooges, think howls, growls and raw, rumbling scuzzrock at its finest. www.myspace.com/cubancrimewave SCUTTY NEIGHBOURS A filthy cocktail of punk, metal and cider, this Skull Tanker side-project are "a ragtag bunch of misfits, miscreants and diseases" hell bent on having the noisiest, scuttiest, most riotously enjoyable party in the neighbourhood. www.myspace.com/thescuttyneighbours YES MY NINJAS?

Come on down for some dada fizz-pop brilliance. www.myspace.com/vanillagodzilla JOHNNY FOREIGNER Alexei, Kelly and Junior listen to loud and quiet music, take too much time off work, write slogans on their t-shirts, and make up noisy pop songs about girls and gin.

Marvellous! www.myspace.com/johnnyforeigner LOIS Having just had new single 'Monkey Girl' picked up, playlisted and praised by Radio 2's Mark Radcliffe, Lois' brand of classic pop is ripe for the picking.
