THE Rhythm Factory continues its weekly night Bored Youth On Prozac, showcasing new upfront bands every week.

This Wednesday (April23), look out for Cockney punk folk'n'rollers Corporal Machine & The Bombers and their blend of Chas and Dave-style rock and roll and punk with a healthy dose of tuba.

Monkish are a stripped-down, punk band that count Monty Python and Samuel Smiths pubs among their influences. Who could blame them? They have songs called things like Asbo and Essex Pub Orgy.

Pint Shot Riot have already graced the Steve Lamacq show on Radio One as 'demo of the week' and have been described by John Peel successor Huw Stephens as "one of the best new bands in the UK."

White hot guitars and beats to make your feet move, this outfit from Coventry has taken off with a debut single Punches Kicks Trenches and Swords.

Rounding off the bill is the French five-piece Foile Ordinaire, blending distorted guitars with synth, basslines and political lyrics, and punk-folk Jarmean with extra trumpet, trombone and a instrument of the moment, a ukulele.

Bored Youth on Prozac at the Rhythm Factory in Whitechapel-road, Wednesday, 8pm to 1am, £6/£4.
