The Chapman Family

The Chapman Family are a group of four miserable northerners from Teesside, England and have been playing together since May 2006 – Kingsley Chapman (vocals/guitar), Pop Chapman (bass), Paul Chapman (guitar), and Phil Chapman (drums). They decided to create their own brand of intensely dark and noisy indie as they were tired of being bored and uninspired by the same old bands week in, week out. They are as much inspired by folk as hardcore punk and their occasionally chaotic gigs can change from euphoric to the apocalypse in an instant.

BFG

Three artists go by the name BFG. BFG is the abbrevation for the russian skinhead band Bound for Glory. BFG is also a DJ from upstate New York whose funky, eclectic approach to beats and blends led to 2007's seamless "Medium Pimpin" mixtape, a full-length mashup of old-school and contemporary dance music. Trained at NYC's Scratch Academy, BFG learned to mix in order to perfect the mixtapes he obsessively made for friends and family. He currently spins in the Albany area and records at Guano Cellar Studios in Schenectady, still trying to perfect the art of the mixtape.

Siiiii

Siiiii were born in early 1983 when singer Paul, then only 19, moved from his native East Anglia to Sheffield purely to be in the band, joining guitarist Mark, and bassist Ange. Taking their name from William Burroughs' "The Soft Machine" they gigged extensively during the early to mid 1980's and possibly hold the record for the amount of times they were nearly signed to record labels. Siiiii disbanded in 1986 and the members went their separate ways. Mark went on to play with the Anti-Group and Paul became involved in The Niceville Tampa (now Niceville) and then DVO in South Wales.

The Homosexuals

The Homosexuals were an influential British punk band formed in 1977 as Rejects by Bruno McQuillan, Anton Hayman, and Jim Welton (who has also gone by the names L. Voag, Amos, and Xentos). Their angular guitars, complex melodies, and experimental leanings distanced them somewhat from the punk rock being created by their contemporaries and made them a definite precursor to post-punk. They released very little during their lifetime, and most of what they did release was on small run vinyl on obscure record labels.
