TO THE GROUND: COPY tasting; GO2.

SEEMS like there's an all out attack of tribute bands hitting the area this week.

It kicks off tonight in Leamington when the Other Beatles perform at the Royal Spa Centre and The Sussex Pistols cause some anarchy down at Kellys.

Meanwhile, here in Coventry, Dark Side of The Wall will be laying some Floyd on you at The Hare and Hounds.

On Tuesday the venue will play host to the wierdy beardy rock and roll of ZZ Stop.

Smokin' - a king-size night without the filter - kicks off another great weekend at the Colosseum tonight.

DJ Zinc and MC Fatz from True Playaz will be your guides on an exploration into 21st century break beat, technoid bleeps and bass.

Perhaps the most interesting, value for money, three-band line-up to hit Coventry in years takes place at The Colosseum tomorrow night.

Kicking off at 7.30pm in the left wing are power guitar three-piece Crashland, hailed as the spunkiest, cheekiest punk pop trio to hit since early Supergrass.

Pigs in the middle and destined for stardom this year are Bellatrix, Iceland's biggest musical export since Bjork.

The four girls and one bloke project a smorgasboard of sound that is mind blowingly beautiful. Imagine classically trained operatic vocals, serene keyboards with juxtaposed buzz-saw guitars fronted by wide-eyed nordic attitude.

And headlining are Dodgy, gearing up for a major comeback later in the year.

You know all about them. And when the bands have finished then Frequency takes over in the left wing, relocated from The Planet.

Jonny Mac will have the pleasure of spinning the phattest and dopest cuts from his eclectic array of vinyl.

For those who are still, how you say, mad for it, then Sunday still offers plenty to all babies of the beat.

Coversion presents Mixdown at the Campbell, a night of pure techno heaven, while The Lighthouse has launched a new night of Sunday hedonism with ex Foundry DJ Paul Morrell.

Other notables for the week are Superfly Blue at Kelly's on Saturday night, The Difference at The Rocket on Sunday and Black and Blue on Monday, again at Kelly's.

Meanwhile, The Venue is looking for bands to play so give 'em a call.

Plus, news just in that new boy Alan has left Swamp Donkey after a brief career that existed only in my head.

John has returned to guitar duties and, may I say, the band is all the better for it.
