BAND Tall Stories
Tall Stories are based in Birmingham, and fast made a name for themselves in the burgeoning local scene. Following a breakneck summer,
the band entered a writing period, during which they recorded Concrete Heads, and had a line-up change,welcoming a fourth member James Marson on lead guitar. 2020 saw the band forced to reschedule live dates and instead commence writing on their debut EP. However, the band are never inactive, and the Black Lives Matter protests drew them out of isolation, with Louis performing an acoustic set live on Instagram to raise funds for the Stephen Lawrence Trust. Tall Stories are now ready to resume playing live, whenever that’s possible, with live bookings being made for the end of 2020 and early 2021.

BAND Hindu Needle Trick
SONG Still I Want More
After two self-produced albums, The Hindu Needle Trick decided to step it up a notch. Enter producer
Jesse Maes (Hypochristmutreefuzz, Sophia) and engineer Bert Vliegen (Teen Creeps, Sophia), who did a
fine job at highlighting all of The Hindu Needle Trick’s strengths: 8 songs featuring catchy choruses,
razor-sharp guitars and warm grooves.
The Hindu Needle Trick has been touring Belgium and Holland since 2013 with catchy and boisterous
pop songs with a twist of indie rock, a pinch of folk and a whiff of punk. They also did their fair share of
recording, resulting in a self-titled EP (2013), 3 studio albums: “Albert Street” (2014), “Animal Life”
(2017) and “Creatures Of Convenience” (2020), and one digital live album (2019).

I'm a singer songwriter from East End of London.

Its shaping up to sound like the classic 90s bands such as RIDE / THE VERVE's A STORM IN HEAVEN Album
BAND The Nightmares
We just self released our debut album on Friday (25/09/2020)
We are The Nightmares, we met in a graveyard 3 years ago and started to mix disco with fuzzy riffs to create our weirdo sounds. We are all tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theories and this has leaked it's way into our debut album "See You Later Savages". The title which was taken from a mysterious time capsule found under an American school.
Savages is an 8 song burst of adrenaline. Coming in smashing your ears and leaving before you can even say hello. Over the 8 songs on Savages we wanted to show off the things that we do best! With a whole bunch of heavy riffs, funky bass-lines and pounding disco drums.

BAND: The Kecks
SONG: All For Me - out 23rd Oct - another exclusive!!
Cross continental Garage Rock purveyors The Kecks have emerged from Hamburg lockdown with their most self aware, emotionally powerful and poignant work to date, with new dark, raw, twisted, romantic fantasy ballad All For Me. Having once again teamed up with producer JB Pilon at London’s Buffalo Studio, the band have indulged a much wider array of their influences with this release, exploring the more flamboyant pop elements of their sound likened to the likes of Bowie, Pulp, and The Last Shadow Puppets.
Being hailed by Consequence Of Sound as “The Strokes of Hamburg” - The Kecks could actually lay claim to being the least German band in Germany, with a cross continental lineup of members originating from Australia, the UK, Austria, and southern Germany. Having initially been founded on the back of a FlixBus on their way to see The Growlers play in Berlin, The Kecks have since established a reputation for writing brutally honest and somewhat unconventional indie-rock that has landed them on Radio X, BBC Radio 6, Amazing Radio and Spotify editorial playlists.
BAND: The WRST
TRACK - Rheumy
WRST (pronounced "the worst") is a four piece garage, groove, gutter, gentleman's band based in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Their influences include Fiona Apple, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, dive bars, Looney Tunes, and that little voice in your head that never shuts up.
Their debut full-length album "12 Legged Luncheon" is set to release early 2021.
