Bones Shaker ; Also Playing: Ebony Bones

A POST-PUNK visionary rolls into Middlesbrough tomorrow for the Empire's weekly Metropolis shindig.

EBONY BONES first came into the public's view in Channel 5's ill- fated soap Family Affairs. There she bought herself a laptop and padded her dressing room for soundproofing.

Pictured left, the 24-year-old gatecrashed our collective conscious last year with the awesome We Know All About You and Don't Fart On My Heart.

The self-taught musician presents her truly unique DiY electronic punkorama with a fresh stripped down, raw vibe.

Grace Jones and Don Letts have attended gigs, she's supported Basement Jaxx, and US hip-hop producer Timbaland has been spreading the word Stateside.

Recent live shows in London have taken a sinister masked burlesque feel, so this Metropolis dig at the Empire tomorrow should be something special.
