** Naked pun! fierce panda and Xfm join forces for May 20 X-Posure show! **
** The Hosts + Longfellow let it all hang out… **
** …And Special Guest Tom Hickox is revealed in the middle slot! **

The Thing: Xfm & The Barfly present X-Posure Live fierce panda special

The Acts: THE HOSTS + special guest TOM HICKOX + LONGFELLOW

The Stardate: TUESDAY MAY 20TH 2014

The Venue: LONDON CAMDEN BARFLY

The Tickets: £7.00 advance from www.ticketweb.co.uk/event/PUA2005X

The Plot: The Xfm X-Posure formula remains blindingly simple - three or so bands play live at the Barfly, their sets get recorded and then they get aired on Xfm and that's exactly what will happen this time too, albeit with an added twist as tonight fierce panda records, currently in the midst of their 20th anniversary celebrations, bring three of their newest signings to the party.
Alternatively, in the words of the legendary presenter and compere John Kennedy: "I thought that as X-Posure was into its 15th year it was about time I had an X-Posure Live fierce panda special. As the label has always been such a consistently good place to find talent, ahem, just like the radio show, it seemed only right to combine powers and tap into the current seam of musical gold to be found in the panda mine."

THE HOSTS (onstage 10.00pm) Five smartly-attired gentlemen from the North, The Hosts have been smouldering away in the margins, buffing up the buttons on their waistcoats and waiting for their moment to shine. Earlier this year they released the terrific ‘September Song’, a raffish slab of retromantic alt.pop which waltzed all over the nation’s radio waves, followed by the crushingly crescendo-laden ‘Softly, Softly’ album. After wise springtime support slots with Fitz & The Tantrums and Goldheart Assembly The Hosts release the gallopingly heroic ‘Give Your Love To Her’ single on fierce panda on May 5th.

special guest TOM HICKOX (onstage 9.00pm) Another smartly-attired gentleman from the dark end of the Camden High Street, Mr Hickox has been carefully cultivating a widescreen sound based around his bruised baritone of a voice. If you think the title of his new 'War, Peace And Diplomacy' album suggests heavyweight themes and heavy-of-heart melodies then you are thinking right. His recent heroically dignified debut appearance on 'Later' is being followed by a UK tour right now and a new single, 'Out Of The Warzone', on the panda on May 26th.

LONGFELLOW (onstage 8.15pm) It has been said before but we’ll say it again right blinking here: if you like your music with an epic resonance and a sense of heroic melancholy then Longfellow could well be Your New Favourite Band. Five heartbreakers-in-waiting they lurk in South London and create a modestly authentic mixture of indie and pop, bolstered by fearless melodies, large choruses and emotional lyrical twists. Returning to the Blighty fray after their SXSW showcase alongside the likes of Royal Blood, Thumpers and Public Service Broadcasting, this Xfm show also handily doubles up as a launch party for Longfellow’s gigantically huggy new single, ‘Kiss-Hug-Makeup’, released on fierce panda on May 19th. It’s a plan. And it’s come together.
