Alternative Dubstep Orchestra ADO (Alternative Dubstep Orchestra) took to the stage for a gig on home turf last Friday night like a force of nature, opening with a Specials cover that quite literally had the room rattling with bass and vibrating with heavy electric guitar. This is the next generation of dubstep according to Juno Records and from the word go ADO stated their mission... to quite simply get the room and everyone in it to wobble like jelly.

DUMB "Birmingham independent record label, One Beat Records and the city's best music magazine, Brum Notes combine together to present 4 of the best local breakthrough bands all on one night." So ran the billing for this near capacity-rammed gig and jolly well done because it was an eclectic line-up with a near seamless continuity. (Hell of a well-done job by the sound-man and swop-over crews, by the way.)

Misty's Big Adventure Were you so inclined to build a nuclear reactor - a basic knowledge in the fissile properties of uranium (plutonium works equally well but tends to messy) is essential. When the uranium reaches a certain density it is known as ‘critical mass’ initiating a chain-reaction: releasing sufficient energy to instantly boil a kettle, your bollocks moments later and, indeed very soon after, the country as a whole (and a very large hole, at that) if - you don’t keep it in manageable separate lumps. In a similar vein, one has to question just what tonight’s promoter, Arthur, was thinking of when he decided to, effectively, double-headline both Misty's Big Adventure and The Dirty Old Folkers on the same stage, on the same evening.
