Heavy Load

www.myspace.com/heavyloaduk

Heavy Load break all the rules because they don't know what the rules are. They have unwittingly rediscovered the true meaning of what punk is - punk is not about haircuts - badges - nose rings or snarls - punk is saying how you feel - ignoring the trendies and speaking the truth.

Heavy Load are a punk band - some of the band have learning disabilities some don't. They manage to survive through their raucous energy, attitude and sheer volume.  They have started to break out into the mainstream with some triumphant and chaotic sets at Wychwood and Brighton Festival. This year a movie about their unique world is released - the world premiere was at SXSW in Austin, Texas.

Spaceships Are Cool

www.myspace.com/spaceshipsarecool2

Spaceships are cool are sci-fi science pop using theremins, stylophones, casio synths and glockenspiels to make music that sounds like your super nintendo made an LP!   Highly recommended for fans of The Beta Band & The Flaming Lips.

Their debut EP is currently in the US college radio charts & the band have been featured on BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music.

Al Cool and the Stranger Wines

Al Cool and the Stanger Wines are a 6 person band. They like all kinds of music. This means sometimes they sound a bit strange. They seem to be making something they all agree on now. In their words:  “We smoke on the mic like 'Smokin Joe' Frazier, the hell raiser, raisin' hell with the flavour. Just cos you got the bacon, the lettuce, the tomato... Don't mean we're gonna give you our toast! Watch out for 'Celine'.”

"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.
