- BEN OLINS - can't hucklebuck, watusi, monkey or swim, but he'll applaud anyone who can. This deejay can be found behind his wheelie bag sound system every other Wednesday at Soho's legendary basement bar, The New Evaristo, where he hosts his long-running Stag O Lee club night.
- DAN FINNEMORE - guitarist and sometimes drummer/singer for Philadelphia’s Jerry Lee Lewis-inspired rockers Low Cut Connie
- NICK "INTOXICA" BROWN - another Stag O Lee regular DJ, Nick is a seasoned chicken lovin', expletive smokin' arbiter of the slop. Bowling average 130.
- SARAH LOWE - legendary english rock pr goddess who is the publicist for everyone from Nick Cave to The National! to Jesus and Mary Chain…
- "THIRSTY KIRSTY" spends her days selecting music for TV shows about animals, nature, survivalists and eccentrics. By night she can often be found in the boozy basment habitats of London's own wild things, depleting unnatural resources.
- TERI "TRUCKER"s history is littered with recording remains from garage and comedy punk combos including the Budget Girls and the Dirty Burds. Having also done time as a go-go dancer, she'll be looking out for movers and shakers who scintillate and titillate.
- and the WINNER of the TIME OUT CONTEST
