This year marks the point of no return for Matthew Finlayson. Having hit the proverbial 'Big Three O', it’s time for the kid to make something of himself.Rocket science is looking less and less likely a calling as time goes on, for what would NASA need with a manchild who's starting to show the stresses of a life gone astray? The slow decay of time has also taken its toll on the evil sidekick. Leona Irvine, one of history’s crazy cat ladies, travels the lonely road with the kid.

Serve time with electro comedy duo Eccentronic, imprisoned for musical crimes they (probably) didn't commit: mashing up incompatible music (like Kraftwerk, Pulp, Nine Inch Nails and Girls Aloud), audacious middle-class rap, and unleashing dangerously addictive minor internet hits about the Croydon tram, Solihull and existential angst. Cell Block H meets the A-Team - with virtuoso theremin and sequins. “Warp Records' version of Frisky and Mannish” **** (Time Out). “Deliciously weird cabaret” (The Argus).
