As the Camden Crawl rocks around every year, we suddenly realise about two days before (hello!) that we only know about 5 of the artists playing. This year is no exception. Who is Alan Pownall, what are The Virgins and do we really want to go and see something called Three Trapped Tigers?
To save the frantic myspace-ing this year we've compiled a collection of free, legal MP3s from the majority of bands playing in the festival that you can download, stick on your iPod and listen to at ease. Leave a comment and let us know which new artists are you're enjoying and we'll check them out before previewing our favourites on Friday morning. In the meantime add our new Londonist Music account on twitter as we'll be updating live from the festival, telling you the latest queue situations, the hottest placest to be, our celeb spots and most importantly what's good!
