    BEN BUTLER & MOUSEPAD

    Ex-GAY AGAINST YOU's Joe Howe takes the hallucinatory, PAPERRAD infused hyper electronic punk-rock experiments of his previous outfit and adds a hardass future-funk twist. Taking in elements in prog, psychedelia, electro funk, R&B and 80's Pop along the way BB&MP have forged a new approach to high energy party pop that'll have you butt shaking on the dancefloor in an instant. Like Herbie Hancock jamming with Rude Dog and the Dweebs after a heavy afternoon chewing Nerds and drinking Cherryade by the pool with the Miami Sound Machine. The duo have a new album out on LOAF records and have already toured the US with DEERHOOF! Blimey! If you enjoyed the mayhem of Gay Against You then you'll no doubt appreciate a dose of BB&MP.

    COWTOWN

    Long serving local entity attempting to please your every musical need. Possible Cowvana activity on the cards but if that doesn't happen then expect the usual frantically delivered set of fizzy, skewed pop tunage and ass kickingly heavy drums. New tunes a plenty and snazzy new shirts too. Oooohhh.

    BEARDS

    At first Beards’ sound might point to freethinking post punks such as The Minutemen, Units or Delta 5 but the songs wrestle it out through the full gamut of noisy punk-disco, progressive time signatures, moments of majestic AOR, Post-hardcore angles and chaotic Beefheart-esque stomps, successively waylaying any ideas of progness or punkness along the way. Beards formed in Leeds in 2007 and have toured the UK & Europe several times. Their first album Brick by Boulder is out on Ouse.

    MUCKY SAILOR

    A steaming pile of noise, hair, synths and teeth. This wildly out of control beast of a duo blast voodoo wizardry from their seemingly simplistic tools of choice; a drum set and a couple of synths...oh, and that mental sailors wheel of course. One of the all time great father/son duo's. Best enjoyed up close and personal while nursing a fine glass of ale and sporting a hearty grin. Expect lycra clad visions of the future.
