Super Furry Animals
As Wales' favourite psychedelic popsters, the Super Furry Animals have inspired a whole generation of artists since their emergence in the mid-nineties. Recording in both English and Welsh, they changed the way that many thought about the language, whilst producing some of the finest summery Beach Boys-inspired indie to have surfaced in the last two decades.

From their initial somewhat shambolic goth-garage-punk beginnings, covering Screaming Lord Sutch's 'Jack The Ripper' and having an admiration for The Sonics, Faris Badwan and friends have matured considerably over the course of their career, becoming a respected name and stadium-level stars. Their dark gothic sounds now lean more towards Nick Cave and Joy Division than their original garage-rock roots.

#Demdike Stare is a project from Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty. Miles is probably better known as Modern Love's DJ MLZ or as 0.5 of Pendle Coven. Sean Canty is the dedicated digger behind the Haxan events and a member of the hugely respected Finders Keepers crew of vinyl vultures. Their collaborative project tracks the sonic leylines of cult soundtracks, Arabesque dubs and psychotomimetic ephemera with a proper Lancastrian twist...

Silver Apples were formed in 1967, famously known for their pioneering usage of electronic music techniques within psychedelic rock. Having had such revered influence on so many PZYK artists of today, it would be fair to regard Silver Apples as nothing short of legendary. Sole remaining member Simeon Coxe III has toured extensively since reforming Silver Apples in 1996, bringing with him the notoriously primitive and captivating synthesizer known only as ‘The Simeon’.
