The Idol Dead
Always outnumbered but never outgunned, The Idol Dead deliver fearless and memorable punk rock directly to the prefrontal cortex of the UK independent music scene. Since forming in 2008 they have been relentless in their songwriting and touring, covering the UK many times over. In 2017 they released fourth album Tension & Release after fan-funding the process through Pledgemusic, securing funding in a record 37 hours and briefly being the most popular crowdfunding campaign on the planet.
Powderkeg come screaming out of the gate with their own blend of feel-good glam punk and big-booted rock and roll. The DIY release of double A side single 'Make Up Your Mind' encapsulates the attitude of 'Keg: do it right, play it loud, and have a good time all the time. Infectious and energetic, Powderkeg are your new favourite band: you just don't know it yet.
The Senton Bombs
The Senton Bombs are the devil's house band providing the rock and roll soundtrack to the end of the world, paid in whiskey and hotrods, and playing the skin off their fingers whilst we all stroll into hell to slam shots at the bar. With a ferocious attitude to touring and releasing, the Bombs have worn grooves into the independent music landscape like a needle on fresh wax. Be prepared to sell your soul in the front row: you won't need it where the Senton Bombs are headed.
