Hopes that Noel Gallagher's curatorship of the TCT gigs might include a night of improv art-noise have not been realised, but his line-up is none the worse for rounding up Oasis's mates, plus a treat for teens.

TCT regulars Paul Weller (Palma Violets support) and Kasabian show bloke-rock's more daring face, while Gallagher pal Ryan Adams, whose cover of "Wonderwall" bested the original, will preview a new album.

Also airing new work are Primal Scream, though the peak is the ongoing thawing of Britpop's arctic chill, as Blur's Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon support Noel. And if you're too young to remember 1995, goofy rap lads Rizzle Kicks should entertain.
