Darren Hayman and the Secondary Modern


Darren Hayman is the Essex-born lead singer, songwriter and guitarist with UK indie rock band Hefner, big favourites of the late John Peel. Hayman released four studio albums with Hefner (five times more Peel sessions then Blur and twice as many synthesizers as Radiohead) and one album with The French before performing solo with his ever-changing backing group The Secondary Modern.

“...for Darren Hayman is a fine crafter of sweet regret as there ever has been” - The Quietus

“Once The Secondary Modern’s country-tinged, shambling indie marches have you in their sly embrace, you won’t ever want to let go.” - Drowned in Sound

Bug Prentice


Bug Prentice is a three-piece band straddling Oxford and London like some crazy bow-legged godzilla. Their influences range from Deerhoof to John Coltrane, via Woody Allen and Futurama sounding like Thelonious Monk playing guitar in Shellac

You may recognise the many (well, three) faces of Bug Prentice: Stephen Gilchrist can be seen drumming in Jennifer Gentle and Queen Adreena, while Ruth Goller plays bass in Acoustic Ladyland and The Final Terror and Guitarist Ally Craig, a musician of no fixed agenda who hopes to one day locate the prodigal chord. His greatest ambition is to have a tribute band dedicated to him, and his greatest fear is to be rendered obsolete by them.

“From brutal guitar assault to sudden, precipitous silence; from all-out drum battery to bathetic handclaps. They understand contrast well enough to be witty with it.” - Heavy Soil

Al Cool and the Stranger Wines


Al Cool and the Stranger Wines entered the world this time last year. Since then, they've serenaded wild crowds at Kensington Roof Gardens, the Valmont, 93 Feet East, Cargo, Notting Hill Arts Club, Moles and Glastonbury.
“Tickly guitars, a streaky-sounding singer doting over a mythical lady, a chanted and muddy chorus… can it get more East London? They remind me of a good few other bands, but at the same they possess a charming, spunky swagger all of their own.  Painting pretty worlds over catchy riffs, Mr Cool’s voice is appealing but it’s the dainty string quirks in Céline’s quiet moments that truly lift this song into quality territory” - Some Of It Was True

"It's sort of Latino-indie-pop meets afro-beat with verve, swagger and bite. And reminds us mainly of Manu Chao. Which is a VERY good thing." - Odd Wednesdays

Lá Reblá Fam


Hailing from the four corners of the city and drawing their influences from the four corners of the globe, this bunch of vertically challenged misfits came together with one aim in mind: to spread the word. Viva!

All that matters is the glorious, infectious energy these boys are injecting into the capital, like a delicious shot of skank-flavoured adrenaline straight to the heart.
