GIG OF THE WEEK

The Twang @The Junction, Cambridge Friday, May 11

THERE have been a host of bands that have played the smaller local venues before hitting the very big time, but it's often after the event that their star potential becomes so seemingly obvious.

However, this Friday the Cambridge Junction hosts a band who may as well change their name to The Next Big Thing as the phrase is becoming almost tiringly synonymous with them.

The Twang sound like the Stone Roses, The Streets and U2 and if their upcoming album lives up to the promise of debut hit Wide Awake, then this Friday could be a gig to remember for a very long time.
