Venue: Caught by the River, on Thursday.

Signed to Heavenly Recordings and hailing from Chester and Ellesmere Port, these blithesome alt-rockers swing sweetly with some 21st-century modulations on Pavement, Guided By Voices, Randy Newman and Big Star. Their recordings have been produced by Edwyn Collins of Orange Juice and, furthering the Cheshire-Scouse axis, by Bill Ryder-Jones, ex of The Coral. The Guardian wrote in praise of HTC’s “lovely, languid Teenage Fanclub-ish music.” Stand ready for the E-Port’s most righteous attraction since the National Waterways Museum.
