HOOK AND THE TWIN
Not only did Drowned in Sound name Hook and The Twin's first-ever release 'single of the week', but the editor said he'd listen to it again 17 more times on repeat. It was that bloody good, Son. A repeat namecheck on many taste makers new years tip list, the London duo are pretty much a sure thing for greatness this year. Think hypnotic vocals, disco synths n drum beats with indie songwriting and a kraut heart and you'd be all over it. YUM!
A snotty, horny, blend of garage rock, surf music and noise punk, these dudes are kind of like Coachwhips for swingers. ALRIGHT! Like all the best bands evz, Sex Beet started as a joke when Tom & Luke from The Lusts, and their mate Will (the drummer from Jack & The Knives) started making recordings to ease boredoom while hanging out. They put them on My Space for funz and within weeks were offered a tour of France. That's how dreams are made, kids. IN YOUR FACE, Simon Cowell!
Danimal Kingdom is the solo project of local boy done good, Dan Murtha. Though he used to front Bolt Action Five and sings live in his cousin’s act Kissy Sell Out, he now makes music alone and has dreamed up some stellar electronic art-pop. LOVE!LOVE!LOVE!
Bigged up by The NME, Moshi Moshi and everyone who has managed to catch them live, Chapter24 are a band you are going to be hearing a lot more from in the coming months. Claire, Mel, Mark and Joe named themselves after a Syd Barrett song on Pink Floyd's 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn' and are as mentalist on stage as the man himself. OMGZ, Good!
Colette Thurlow used to make Taxidermy zine but now fronts Vulgarians with her Sister Hannah. Along with band mates Woody and Jim they make noisy, no fronting, lo-fi punk that nods to every cool grrrl hero worth knowing. Are we Vulgar? ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY!

We ran our monthly, club motherfucker live band night for 6 years, It was hella fun and a good time was had by all.
We deaded the regular do in March of this year due to um, life and that but are back on the block for a limited run of Mofofests. These were to be travelling mini festivals showcasing our pick of the bestest in new music but after a bit of searching, our commitment to independant operations and long time keenness to stick it to the man, mean we will be doing all of them at our ex-home of 3 years. Yay! Bardens Boudoir is the motherfucking Daddy of the Dalston scene and probably the best family-run, furniture shop basement cum nightclub/Live Music Venue in the whole of the wide world, probably the universe, innit. Good bless it everyone, and all who sail in it!
