Epic Liverpool / Wirral based sound collective. The Fall Of Kings (TFOK) are quickly establishing their mark on their local music scene, word is spreading and the word is Very Good! Based in and around Liverpool TFOK sound nothing like the 'scouse rock' bands that are so well known to the city. Instead they are creating a unique flavor for each song whilst hopefully building a recognisable sound all of their own.They have this to say for themselves: "we tried creating something different, something better. Then we just gave up and started playing some F***ing good tunes"
The Wild Swans were a band from Liverpool, England, who formed in 1980, shortly after Paul Simpson (ex-keyboards) left The Teardrop Explodes and teamed up (on vocals) with Jeremy Kelly (guitar), Gerard Quinn (keyboards) and Justin Stavely (drums). Stavely was later replaced by Alan Wills and although Bass players came and went, Joseph Fearon played on both of the studio albums, recorded by a reincarnated Mark II version of the band.
Dirtblonde are an exciting Liverpool band, far from the retro 60’s sound that Merseyside is known for. Instead, they seek inspiration in the darker, more exciting side of rock’n’roll – the noise of The Jesus And Mary Chain; the intensity of PJ Harvey; the fresh-faced attitude of early NYC punk and buzzsaw guitars of Sonic Youth. Their online-only debut single ‘The Hangmen’ got rave reviews and had Radio One airplay thanks to Steve Lamacq and Alan McGee.
The Loose Hearts are a four-piece alternative band that formed in late 2010 at the University of Liverpool. They are Luke Papini (vocals and rhythm guitar), Chris Mitchell (lead guitar and backing vocals), Ciarán Steward (bass and backing vocals) and Joshua Hill (drums and backing vocals).

Eugene McGuinness (born 1986 in London, England) is an alternative rock singer/songwriter/guitarist. He is signed to domino records. After The Early Learnings Of - a mini album of 8 songs - was released to great critical acclaim last year on Domino’s Publishing Label Double Six, Eugene headed to the studio to make his first full album proper for Domino. The result is twelve utterly charming pop tracks, which skip between boundaries with gleeful abandon and an acidic sense of humour.
Faded Gold is the music of solo artist Stefanie Chew, an electronic experimental performer from Liverpool UK. Crafting her songs from her love of post rock and electronic music, the resulting output is an eclectic mix influenced by artists such as Explosions in the sky, Boards of Canada and M83 to name a few. "Faded Gold marries this air of melancholy to mournful piano and an electronic fuzz which is both reflective, tinged with sadness but ultimately uplifting" Getintothis.co.uk
