VINCE YALLOP

Party-rocking San Francisco art-punks Gold Chains and Sue Cie play just one of five UK dates in Norwich this Sunday, at the Marquee on Cattle Market Street.

GC (aka Topher Lafata) overturned a ton of hip-hop clichés with songs such as I Come From San Francisco and Rock the Parti (sampling an entire Stereolab tune), before recording a Peel session and releasing his acclaimed debut album Young Miss America. He grew up listening to American hardcore and went to his first rave in a desert. He met Sue Cie at a bus stop in heavy rain – both knew producer Kit Clayton (Orthlong Musork) and a partnership was born.

The resulting album, When the World Was Our Friend (Kitty-Yo, 2004), is less hip-hop based and gives space to their new song styles that touch on house, garage, punk and techno resulting in a unique pop sound.

Support comes from Chav 'n' Dave (that's MC Chav and DJ Dave Awesome, from Cambridge) and BRACT (from Norwich).

It runs 7-10.30pm, entry £5 on the door. Further information from www.slowmagazine.com
