    Old School overly descriptive c&r style band write-up's below...

    HIRED MUSCLE

    Bletchley's finest musical export (next to Action Beat), Hired Muscle are a joyous lot to get mixed up with. This Milton Keynes three piece have the uncanny ability to fuse Fugazi-like grooves with the ramshackle, outta control intensity of classic hardcore and the root fundamentals of Punk-Funk. Influenced primarily by D.C's third coming of Discord bands (Faraquet, Q and not U, Medications etc) but also informed by their peers around the U.K, Hired Muscle make a brew well worth sipping from. Think The Minutemen if they we're born in the the mid-80's, in the U.K's answer to mutant new town utopia... with spliffers hanging from their mouths. Keep an eye out for their debut album 'The Last Minute'. Every song's a winner.

    BEARDS

    If you've not seen Leeds very own post-punk manipulators Beards yet then you're either attending the wrong gigs or you spend to much time tabbing out back waiting for the headliners to start. Having honing their skills at many a fantastic gig over the years Beards have inevitably settled into the 'one of the best bands around' category and continue to amaze and amuse with their own signature take on Post-Punk themes. Much like M.K bro's Hired Muscle they mix musical virtuosity with unbridled punk rock enthusiasm to produce a sound that will appeal as much to the dancing beards at the front as it will the chin stroking beards at the back. If you've not got a copy of their debut LP 'Brick By Boulder' yet then it's about time you made an investment.

    BEAST!

    Powerful noodlings from two excitable Liverpudlian lads with Prog-Rock on the brain. This synth and drum duo are the cities answer to the Leeds very own Two Minute Noodles, maximising the potential of a two piece whilst maintaining Liverpool's fine tradition for progressive musical insanity. One man is master of three synths simultaneously, playing with poise and virtuosity. The other, ex-a.p.a.t.t/Kling Klanger David Smyth takes to the kit whilst also finding time stretch the psychedelic capabilities of his MicroKorg. Expect intense rhythmic interplay and soundtrack style melodies. Think Zombi, Goblin, Zombie Zombie, Kling Klang and that kind of business.

    They'll be the usual Funder DJ's, cheap booze and messy fun
