Brighton's Maccabees have gone from strength to strength since the release of their debut top 30 album 'Colour It In' in 2007. Their brand of slightly off-kilter British art-rock has seen them compared to the likes of Wire, Blur, Magazine, Futureheads and XTC. Their frenzied live shows have generated stage invasions and riotous crowds buzzing to the sounds of already classic anthems like 'About Your Dress' and 'Toothpaste Kisses'. After 14 years together, in 2016 the guys announced they had decided to call it a day, and will play their farewell shows in 2017.

Rising from the ashes of Joy Division, the enigmatic New Order triumphed over tragedy to emerge as one of the most influential and acclaimed bands of all time. While their debut album Movement (1981) was shadowed by the legacy of Joy Division, going forward the band combined their original post-punk sound with influences from New York’s club scene. The result was Power, Corruption & Lies (1983), released on Factory Records. From this album came the single “Blue Monday”, which has since become the best-selling 12-inch single of all time. They went on to release a string of albums; Low-Life (1985), Brotherhood (1986) Substance (1987) and Technique (1989). Republic (1993) Get Ready (2001) and Waiting for the Sirens’ Call (2005) before Peter Hook’s departure in 2007. In 2015, the band released their critically acclaimed album Music Complete, reaching #2 in the UK album chart. The album's title seems to shine a hue on New Order's new manifesto: new line-up, newly eclectic sound, reinvigorated in their fourth decade as a unit. New Order performed as part of Manchester International Festival 2017 for a series of unique shows in collaboration with Liam Gillick. These shows were such a success, they were taken to Turin and Vienna in May 2018 to further great acclaim.

Clean Cut Kid
Livepool Indie/Alternative four-piece Clean Cut Kid deliver infectious ear-worm indie-pop melodies with autobiographical lyircs, once described as “Soulful pop ballads, washed in Mersey water”. Their influences range from the current sounds of Arcade Fire and St. Vincent to legends like Bowie and Talking Heads. "One listen and you're sucked into a world of dirty melodies, infectious harmony hooks, glistening choral swells and reference points including US lo-fi pop and Fleetwood Mac. The latter of which is rather apt, given two of the band, Mike and Evelyn are married" - Liverpool Echo.
