Teenage FanClub

@ Brixton Academy

Glaswegian rockers who create mellow, understated musings on the relationship between the sexes. Not only will there be treats from current long-player "Songs From Northern Britain", but Cornershop and Gorky's Zygotic Mynci support. 10 Oct (0171-924 9999)

D Influence

@ Camden Jazz Cafe

London is the title of the new sophisticate-funk album by D Influence, a leading force in the Brit-soul movement. Expect a party-party vibe together with critically acclaimed musicianship.

Guided by voices

@ The Garage

Awesome mavericks from US indieland. This is a one-off British show from these fortysomethings, and, if past visits are anything to go by, ticket demand will be heavy and the mood adventurous.
