Wanted: Canterbury’s next biggest musical vigilantes, a new brand of outlaw who shred from the hip; who will be the 2010 RounDUp renegades?

This showdown is open to all brave enough to face their fears and join the ranks of past RounDUp outlaws – including The Klap, The Tiger Tones, Bang! Bang! Eche!, Slipstream and The Undercurrents, Shapeshifter, The O’Lovelies, The Deceivers, The Insurgents, Heavy Jones Trio, P Bass Expressway and 2009 overall winner; Sleepy Age.
