John Otway

John Otway, (born October 2, 1952, in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England) is a self-confessed unsuccessful singer songwriter, who built a large cult audience through unrelenting touring, a surreal sense of humour and a winning underdog personality. Arriving on the back of punk rock and a gymnastic performance on The Old Grey Whistle Test, his first single, the half-spoken love song "Really Free" 'soared' to #27 in the UK chart. It would be his greatest success for some time. It did earn him a five album deal with Polydor records, who thought he was a punk rather than merely eccentric.

Mac DeMarco

Mac DeMarco, formerly Makeout Videotape, is the anti-thesis to your stereotypical singer-songwriter. Disregarding the seriously somber moments, he replaces them with whimsical and youthful spontaneity, whilst retaining the endearing and subtle commentaries that exude his familiarity. Promptly after leaving his Edmonton garage for Vancouver he embarked on a North American tour accompanying fellow Canadians Japandroids on a grand voyage of enlightenment and alcoholic debauchery.

Lord John

Lord John was an American Bomp! Records band in the late 1980s. Their sound has been compared to that of Echo & The Bunnymen, yet with enough psychedelia in the mix to often have them touted as part of the then emerging paisley underground movement, which was gaining momentum on both the West Coast, as well in the New York underground. Their debut album "Six Days of Sound" (1986) was praised by critics [1].

The Heebie Jeebies

Lo-fi, calypso, fiddly, twonk pop. These are labels thrown around wildly, like poo against a monkey's caged wall. Which is what you may liken The Heebie Jeebies playing style to. But that would be paying them a huge compliment. I JOKE. They are a 3 piece originally from the combined parts of Rotherham and Swinton but now based in deepest, darkest West Sheffield and are the ramshackle strum-pop trio you've been waiting you're whole life for. Or perhaps just the last couple of hours. Who knows.
