The current strain of the economic climate has forced some of Liverpool's favourite venues to close down; here Gemma Smith explains why Snub round Deux refuses to bow to this pressure.

"Let’s stop the fighting amongst the bands. Let’s unite and bring camaraderie to the arts scene instead of bands fighting amongst themselves for a mediocre slot not even their mothers can be bothered to get out of bed for.

"And let’s face it, if you wanted to take part in a voting system, you’d have auditioned for X-Factor.

"With the sad closure of The Masque and The CUC, plus the demise of live music in Mojo, Liverpool's music scene has been rocked. We want to champion local artists and give fans value for money.

"We have the first Thursday, Friday and Saturday of every month booked at the mighty Lomax and will be charging no more than £3 entry.

"We want to show the world how talented and diverse Liverpool is musically.

"We want to showcase some of the best Indie, Pop, Pop-Punk, Emo, Rap and Metal acts in Merseyside. No tricks, no gimmicks, just great music.

"Snub will launch Thursday 2nd February kicking off with Metal Snub. The line-up includes: The Day Will Come, Hollow Dreams, Scare Tactics and Hope Against Hope who will each bring something a little bit different.

"Mixes of old school, tech, post hardcore and modern metal will all be on show. Oceanis take the role of headliners, but I don't think any of the bands playing would look out of place topping the bill.

"Friday 3rd February will see our Indie/Alt Snub show commence. The Temps, White Heat, The Fall Of Kings and The Last Gambados are bands that are hard to pigeon hole but impossible to ignore. I think they all incorporate epic rock, indie and pop perfectly.

"And finally comes our Rock Snub, Sunday 5th Feb. Local hero’s Guardians (formally Hippy’s on the hill) will be bringing their fiery brand of high voltage rock, whilst headliners Always The Quiet Ones will ensure a frenetic live show.

"We Were Beautiful draw influence from every corner of the music industry and have already supported the likes of Deaf Havana and Lower Than Atlantis, whilst The Blackhand, having recently released their debut album 'Greetings, From The Bitter Sweet Edge' shouldn't be missed.

"The last band joining are Arkaidence, bringing their impressive, progressive rock."
