Bet on it...

... Rough Trade's Grand National picks:

NICHE MARKET (IRE)

Former Irish Grand National winner. Owned by larger-than-life Dubliner Graham Regan. Boasts some excellent form in top races, including second in the Aon Chase and a Hennessy third. Jockey is son of showjumper Nick Skelton, and the young rider's brother Dan, who is assistant to the trainer, celebrates his birthday on Grand National day.
Odds: 16-1

And for the boys and girls at Talbot Rd...

WEST END ROCKER (IRE)

This horse was barely on my radar until Monday night when I had a dream. I rarely remember my dreams, but this one was crystal clear. The winner of the Grand National was West End Rocker. People said I was off my rocker when I told them, but has an outside squeak based on two fine wins earlier in the season.
Odds: 40-1

BO NINGEN JUST ANNOUNCED



That's right, the Japanese noise merchants Bo Ningen renowned for their powerful psychedelic live onslaughts are performing live at Rough Trade Warehouse Party at Red Gallery this Friday 8th April.

You can hear the past in their wall of sound and massive melodies, but the past re-imagined - from Butoh to Black Sabbath. They update the j-rock template with elements of kraut-rock, metal, hardcore and funk scratched all over it.
