Upstart with a guitar usurps the electro-thumping Chart hogwash? It can happen, and Jake Bugg proved it last year with this meteroically successful debut 'Jake Bugg'. The Nottingham squire has been compared with everyone from Bob Dylan to Alex Turner because of this refreshingly tradtional sound indebted to country music, Brit Pop and the blues. Bundle that together with Bugg's arresting vignettes on the everyday and you've got a proper British icon in the making. Also featuring support from Little Green Cars and Hudson Taylor.
