First of May, First of May,

Outdoor shaggin’ starts today
But as always, it do rain,
So we shags off back indoors again.

– Folk rhyme (with a nod to Jilly Cooper)

May Bank Holiday looms, calling upon the reptilian gambling streak that inhabits the deeper recesses of your cerebral cortex. The payoff, of course, is the long-odds jackpot of outdoor Spring-like abandon in a Welsh (Cumbrian, Cornish, Kentish…) festival field with the sun beating hard on your bared back and an inspired headline act pumping a communally-felt groove through the assembled brethren.

More often though, it’s trenchfoot and wetwipe disaster in a leaky tent and the early morning fog of ciderbreath drifting over a Somme-like vista of greyfaced gapyahs.

So we offer an indoor alternative (for the Sunday night at any rate). Shangaan Electro and The Bug. At Koko. Indoors.

What exactly happens when the whumping bass of The Bug meets those big Nozinja chorus vocals – that’s a gamble that looks like much more fun.
