London born-and-bred five-piece IC1s are loud, energetic and ambitious. Their Britpop indie sound recalls a fearless nineties attitude that today's music industry certainly has room for. The Libertines' drummer Gary Powell has been championing the band and they have also been hailed as the new Ramones by Pete Donaldson (Xfm/6Music). Last month they were in support of The Family Rain for their final tour of the year and our photo review is from their show at London's Heaven in November. Photos: Robin Pope
