The Mekkits

Salford/Manchester’s The Mekkits are a rabble of childhood friends, mostly from nearby Cheshire who moved to the bright lights of the rainy city via a few years in windswept and sea-soaked Wales… Indeed The Mekkits’ music is a bit like the weather: A Kaleidesope ranging from gloriously sunshiny singalongs to tales of dark stormy seas. It’s surfy/folky pop music with a smattering of ska! Singing songs of the sea, the city, the countryside, animals, love and life...

Mowbird

Mowbird are a three piece surf-punk band from Wrexham. Formed in 2010, following the dissolution of grunge band Roy Destroy, by three friends who shared a love for Fugazi, and their DIY punk rock ethic. Mowbird do not take themselves seriously. Their favourite collective past-time is snorkeling, and mowing the lawn, although Mike cannot swim. This is not an issue whilst mowing the lawn, but does cause problems whilst snorkelling, so often band activities are completed apart. If you like songs, you will like Mowbird.

Shannon And The Clams

Beach Rock revival Oakland, California band Shannon and the Clams take you back to a time when Judy and Johnny were your favorite worst couple, with the help of some very heartbreaking background vocals and guitar riffs of which The Beatles would be proud. Influences like The Beach Boys, The Shangri- La's, The Ronettes, and Patsy Cline shine through in songs like "When You're On", with front woman Shannon crooning like a scorned Leslie Gore, but with a rough unpolished edge inspired by the likes of The Cramps, Bad Brains, and fellow beach bum Nobunny.

Fireballs

“Technicolour rock, in the age of beige” Beat magazine Fireballs are recognised by many as Australia’s first and foremost psychobilly band, a reputation credited to their early beginnings and their present longevity. From inception the idea was to capture a flavour that would recognise their original rockabilly roots and their love of playing hard ‘n’ fast. Heavily influenced by double bass driven international bands, such as The Stray Cats, Batmobile, Mad Sin and the Klingonz, Fireballs ambitiously aimed to carve out their own niche in a smaller Melbourne scene.
