Mancunian Greats Added to Camden Crawl
808 State and The Fall take the trip down south.
The line up for the Camden Crawl (which this year features the celebrated Roundhouse venue for the first time) has been further bolstered with the addition of two acts responsible for a large portion of Manchester`s collective musical genius - 808 State and The Fall, leading lights in the dance and post-punk scenes respectively and still cool as fuck in middle age.
Other acts added to the line-up include the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Maccabees and The Big Pink, the hotly-tipped revivalist act who no doubt consider both 808 State and The Fall as prime influences.
There are also appearances from Justin Hawkins` post-Darkness (and therefore doomed) comeback vehicle Hot Leg and unintelligible Dundee also-rans The View - if you like that sort of thing.
The festival takes place over Friday 24th April and Saturday 25th April and features spoken word performances and comedy on top of a stellar cast of the world of indie as it stands.
