General Fiasco

MTV and Gift Music have teamed up to stage a UK-wide tour, featuring some of the country's best musical talents, both emerging and established, playing each regional slot.

It touches down in Belfast's Stiff Kitten next Wednesday, January 13, and the headliners will be the Co Londonderry trio General Fiasco. They have been tipped as the band to watch, especially around March when their debut album, entitled Buildings, is due to be released. Their strong and impressive résumé includes the release of three well-received singles, filling the Ulster Hall last Halloween night, a support slot with Snow Patrol and a successful headlining UK tour.

The band, comprising brothers Owen and Enda Strathern, plus school pal Stephen Leacock, are no strangers to a huge crowd and a big stage. Although slightly smaller than what the band are fast getting used to, their Stiff Kitten gig, complete with support from A Plastic Rose, is on course for a repeat performance of their sell-out show last August so tickets, costing £8, are likely to be scarce.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

You feel optimistic and for good reason. An admirer has been trying to win your heart. All this attention is flattering. If you're single, keep playing hard to get. The more you resist, the more they'll persist. Are you already in a relationship? Start pursuing a cherished dream. Fulfilling your heart's desire will make you a better partner and friend. Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
