'Masters of the stoned blues'. (The Crack)
Based in Fife, The Fence Collective is a loose-knit amalgam of singer-songwriters, bands and electronic artists who collaborate with one another on record, as well as on stage. Although their music isn't always strictly 'folk' in the traditional sense, the Collective's tendency to hand-down and share songs with one another is very much in the folk spirit.
The Fence Collective tour dates
Solo musician and artist Dan Wilson from Edinburgh, previously of Peanut and The Love Gestures. Scratchy, grassroots alt-pop, skewed folk and punk intention, accompanied by cello, drums, banjo and the like.
Withered Hand tour dates
Kid Canaveral are an alternative pop group based in Edinburgh, and the indiepop poster children of the Fence Records roster. They realeased their first single in 2007 and have to date released two critcally acclaimed albums- Shouting at Wildlife (2010) and Now That You Are a Dancer (2013) - on Fence Records.
"They've evolved from DIY party-starters to serious contenders for the Scottish pop throne, with a glorious line in melodic alt-rock" The Herald
Kid Canaveral tour dates
Reformed '77 post-punk band, featuring Goldblade's John Robb. A key influence on bands like Big Black and the US underground, The Membranes are a melting pot of post punk, psychedelic rock, noise and drone, and neo classical pieces. The band claim they are "not a rock n roll project, but a high decibel orchestra playing discordant death disco symphonies about life and the universe and beyond. With music that varies from classic Membranes discordant noise, to drone rock epics, to neo classical orchestrated pieces to psych outs, to a walk on the dark side exercise in post punk with dark dub exercises…”
