Each month Topman pick a current, exiting, UK band to become Topman CTRL Controllers, giving them a chance to share some of their inspirations and current raves on the Topman CTRL site, their month culminating in a headlining gig with a line up hand picked by the band. After Filthy Dukes successful run as Controllers last month Topman have made the incredibly smart move of handing the reigns over to New Young Pony Club.
Here at electronic rumours we’ve managed to get our hands on an exclusive Topman T-shirt designed by New Young Pony Club as they take the helm of the Topman CTRL site http://www.myspace.com/topmanctrl in February.

Completing the bill are Mercury Music Prize nominated The Invisible, art-rockers The Laurel Collective and sets from DJ duos Run Hide Survive and Children For Breakfast. Curated by the Controllers New Young Pony Club, the night showcases their predictions for the hottest emerging acts on their radar.
