Single out famous five; Also playing: Temujin.

Byline: Chris Hole

TEESSIDE indie rockers TEMUJIN (pictured right) will be launching their new single on home turf tonight.

Promoting Cocaine Eyes with a show at Stockton's Georgian Theatre, it's been a hectic year for the five young tunesmiths.

The band are made up of the remnants of local Teesside legends Myormay who showed early promise with lead singer Kong, aged just 17, catching the attention of the late and great John Peel.

One university sabbatical and a line-up change later, they played their first show stopping performance at Middlesbrough's Empire in the autumn of 2009.

Things have been moving at a manic pace ever since - they've supported the likes of Sound of Guns, Twisted Wheel, Delays, Detroit Social Club, The Chapman Family, Dirty Weekend, Young Rebel Set and Jimmy & the Sounds.

This band isn't scared of the word anthem and is most definitely all about the big tunes.

Listening to the battle cries of Fire In The Sky and 13 or the grungier Someone Stop Me and S.L.Y., you know that these chaps mean business.

With additional influences ranging from The Manics, Damon Albarn, the Killers, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead and Nirvana, they have a sound that's somewhere between indie pop and grunge rock.

With explosive support in the shape of GOY BOY McILROY and BARE PHUT, tonight's gig - part of the weekly Jukebox night at The Georgian Theatre, showcasing the best in local talent - promises to be big one.

JUKEBOX feat TEMUJIN, BARE PHUT, GOY BOY McILROY: The Georgian Theatre, Stockton Tonight. Entry: pounds 6/pounds 3 after midnight
