These are the bands you'll be able to see at the Talent Stage at T in the Park on the 7th and 8th July...
Risingson - winners from the student heats. Perhaps unusually, a mix of triphop/scratching and rock that works - confident and compelling live
Nero - seemingly popular winners from the Aberdeen heat. Signed to Alphabetty, they're better live than even their fine split single with the Carnations suggests.
McSleazy - two-man live assault with a mix of pounding electronics and occasional guitar
Bendy Toy - hotly-tipped, you've probably heard Bendy Toy on the radio already - massively creative mix of beats and samples
Spyamp - quite popular on the Session in Scotland, it seems
Breschnev - noisy buggers, apparently. Warning: their performance will feature strobe lighting.
Yessa De Paso -popular choice from the Dundee heat; hopefully their lovely quiet quiet songs will be audible in the tent
Police Chief - dance/rock Madchester kinda stuff
Ellis - slightly gutsier take on Travis
Wayne Paycheck - Jim Gellatly on the Beatscene seems quite keen on them/him
Degrassi - at last, Degrassi's luck has changed! Always loud and energetic live, always worth seeing.
There are also 10 acts chosen by the promoters who will appear in the tent over the weekend.
- Richard Clayderman as played by Shellac. Obviously. Don't listen
