<< GENTLEMAN STARKEY- Garage/ Rock- firing out unhinged garage rock. Straight out of a Lynch film they capture the Romanticism of Nostalgia with toe tapping rythms rivaling the likes of Eighties Matchbox Disaster. “Garage rockers who lure you into their dark world before wrapping you in their welcoming arms…songs that feel like two laps round the world best ghost train” XYZ Magazine, September 2009
<< ROBOT DISASTER - Electro / Indie - "Their new single is certainly one for the dance floor...and if Robot Disaster were a superhero this would be their super power, the ability to get you moving as their poppy, indie disco leaks into your pumping veins" – ARTROCKER (ONSTAGE 10.15pm)
<< JAPANESE FIGHTING FISH- Alternative/ Indie- Breaking the mould with a fresh take on rock carving interesting riffs along with a killer live set! “A highlight of my last five years..my tip for success!'” (Will Jackson - Producer of The Cribs, The Music and The Pigeon Detectives).
