Class acts in the city.

Byline: Pete Chambers

PRIMITIVES COVENTRY'S Kasbah continues to put on a range of top rate acts in the city, including the prestigious PIL appearance and a recent gig from Coventry's brilliant Lipshock.

Future events include Dodgy on June 11, Toploader June 18, Fun Loving Criminals on July 10 and Ash on July 27.

On the local front The Primitives will be taking the stage on September 17, with Kill Progression on June 10. For more information go to www.kasbahnightclub.com LAMENT KENILWORTH'S finest, Lament, will be adding a touch of 'The Latin beat' at The University of Warwicks' Art Centre on June 24.

The band have been adding the 'oh so' colorful brand of happy sunny rhythms to the scene since 2003.

On the way they have released a trio of must have albums that track their musical progression, with the current offering Sun Soaked.

It's an album that in my opinion, stands to define Lament as a professional outfit, with its rich rhythms and infectious beats all topped off with Kath Kimber's superb vocals. Little mystery why this band can still play such prestigious venues, check them out on www.lament.info FLYGONE, yes, remember this name, because these guys are another fine example of what the area can offer in the talent stakes. Once heard there can be little doubt that this band are to be something of a fixture for some time to come.

They recently released their debut EP, a cracking slice of cleverly crafted rock songs, all benefitting with some superbly catching choruses. You can tell a lot of work has gone into these songs, professional and tight, with one of the best drum sounds I have heard on a debut release.

Lyrically It's a little gritty (hence the Parental Guidance warning on its cover), though I doubt that will put off the hoards of fans that will be turning on to see this band in the coming weeks and months.

It's always a changeling moment when you hear something a little out of the normal, I'm a fan now, and can't wait to see them live, how about you? To download the EP for free go to www.flygone.co.uk They will be playing tomorrow at 2-Tone Central supporting Anthony Harty, see you there then.

LIEUTENANT PIGEON LIEUTENANT Pigeon, the team that bought you the chart topper Mouldy Old Dough, continue to experiment with new sounds 40 years down the line.

Their latest project is The Five Seasons, beginning with their homage to Easter, summer, autumn and Christmas.

The fifth season being a song dedicated to A Maid In Hong Kong!

Not sure how that song fits in, but it's still a well crafted ballad from Rob Woodward and Nigel Fletcher.

Happy Easter Holiday bucks the Christmas time song trend while The Sunshine Song sees the guys on familiar piano based sing-a-long style, followed by the melancholy Autumn Serenade. Ending with a pigeonesque version of Christmas Song, as featured in The Odessa File soundtrack. To get your hands on a copy, go to www.lieutenantpigeon.co.uk
