Showtime

20.50 - 21.30 hrs

Do Nothing from Nottingham sounds like the emaciated nihilistic little brother of The Clash, The Fall and Roxy Music. The Weltschmerz priest at the front is called Chris Bailey, and Chris Bailey sketches an ink black and bitter world view with his dark poetry. That cynicism has a clear origin: Bailey draws inspiration from drunken conversations in the dull pubs, the walls where the wry truths and confessions become commonplace. Do Nothing’s musical ode to absolute emptiness, however, is full of substance, thanks to their rattling rhythms, moody guitars, and psychotic monologues.
