Echo & the Bunnymen
Eighties indie heroes whose majestic songwriting haunted a generation of bedsits and student pads. Re-formed in 1997, and still fronted by the inimitable Ian McCulloch, there's every cause to celebrate the Bunnymen's return. Their seminal albums 'Crocodiles', 'Heaven Up Here', 'Porcupine', 'Ocean Rain' & 'Echo & The Bunnymen' have all been a major influence for groups such as Coldplay, The Killers and The Flaming Lips whilst later albums 'Evergreen', 'What Are YouGoing To Do With Your Life?', ‘Siberia' & 'Meteorites' demonstrate what an amazing body of work the band have.

Described by The Times as a 'National Treasure', Billy Bragg's brand of socially and politically aware punk-folk has made a remarkable dent in the British conscience and made his name as one of Britain's most popular and out-spoken singer/songwriters. Drawing on the folk tradition of protest song, and the punk sensibilities of direct action, Billy Bragg has made a name for himself as an accomplished and inspirational musician, and as a charged and pro-active activist. At their best, Billy’s songs present ‘the perfect Venn diagram between the political and the personal’ (the Guardian)

An soulful indie-blues singer-songwriter from Bedford, Tom studied acting at university, had a brief job at Costa Coffee then trained to be a professional footballer. This was all about to change, however, when his vocal talents were first discovered at a party while singing a cover of 'Seaside' by The Kooks after a few drinks too many. He then went on to become guest vocalist on Chase & Status's track 'When It All Goes Wrong' and his success story continues. Pretty soon Elton John was ringing him up to tell him how much he liked his music.

IDLES are a heavy post-punk band from Bristol. They want to entertain and hurt in equal measure. They believe that art and violence work. Their spirit colour is coral pink. One of them loves queuing, one struggles counting, one has been arrested 8 times, one doesn't like music and one puts sausage rolls on his pizza! 'IDLES are hard to capture, because they're not Fat White Family, they're not Sleaford Mods, they are very much their own incarnation of uncompromising rhythmical punk rock. Lyrically, a mixture of dry obsessional humour and poetic slogans. But, best of all, they really get the adrenaline pumping' - Steve Lamacq, BBC6 Music.

Fickle Friends are a ‘80s-inspired indie-pop five-piece from Brighton. Fronted by Natti, they describe themselves as, 'pop but with a slightly mental indie feel' and with those claustrophobic synths, scattered beats and a gigantic pop hook, she’s not wrong. They have been making waves since they unveiled their debut single SWIM, which gained nearly six million plays on Spotify. The band caught the attention of BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Apple Music’s Zane Lowe and even captured the interest of Billboard Magazine in the US.

'The Blinders are a three-piece alternative group from Doncaster who are now based in Manchester. The band attempts to be in your face at all times, smelting loud and visceral political punk rock with enigmatic, psychedelic poetry and tones. Their diverse, unique combination of raw music creates the ‘Punkadelic’ sound which forces the trio to give everything they’ve got in their frenzied performances, leaving only blood-stained instruments behind.'

Alternative indie / folk two piece from the London borough of Camden. 'Jim and Daniel grew up partying together. Now singing together, they create songs with a strong narrative and a sweet purity runs through their acoustic sounds. Proudly representing their Camden roots, the North London twang is carried through their songs. Beauty is formed through their simplistic way of arranging a song, stripping back to basics of an instrumental and a vocal. The kind of raw vocals that warm your belly and make the hairs on your arms stand on end.'
