Let's Wrestle Steve Albini produced, Merge signed Great British Post-Punk 3 piece, playing with a new line up.
Slowgun 6 Music favourites-One of the best bands in London-awesome crazed solo's, pretty indiepop harmonies and killer distorto pop tunes!
The Catcher Nine Formed by Koichi & Teresa from The 'Screaming Tea Party' & Anthony from 'Hot Silk Pocket'. Dream-Pop with a post-punk attitude, sounding like Moe Tucker meets The shaggs.
NO CARS All-girl Japanese garage pop-punk trio based in London, singing cute songs for farmers, vegetables, food and selotape.
KAYAKA with Tall on Pipe Free style drum beats on folk noise from Japanese Kaya.
MJ Hibbett Having performed live on Radio One, had a Record Of The Year in Rolling Stone, an Album Of The Day on 6Music, released one of the first ever viral videos, toured up and down the UK and even featured in an Edinburgh Fringe Festival show, and all while maintaining complete independence from record labels, Hibbett is old school indie, belligerently optimistic, and will have a pint.
Your New Friend Featuring Simon Kobayashi (smallgang) and Alex Carter (Armchair Songs), They play incredibly pretty songs with a rare level of skill and complexity.
Rica Minami (Kuaigora) ex-Hanjiro front lady Rica's solo material is cinematically grand with pounding pianos, floaty vocals and dreamy melodies. Expect to be swept away by a wave of Japanese psychedelic indie pop, strong visuals and super energy.
Toshi (smallgang/Mordros) One of smallgangs 2 front men, Toshi plays heartfelt intricate, catchy, distorto post-punk songs in this rare solo outing.
Rebekah Delgado The two previous bands she fronted have collected assorted accolades including numerous plays and a record of the week on Radio 1, XFM playlisting, plays on MTV, MTV2, Kerrang TV, BBC London record of the week, best of Myspace Sept '08 and many plays on BBC6.)
