Brighton-based, trans-national, genre-blenders on their first UK tour!
“ĠENN (pronounced Jenn) is a trans-national, genre-blending, musical riot, ready to rock your ears and mess with your brain. They’re serving alternative post-punk madness with a fun twist, fresh out of their DIY framework and are based out of Brighton. The quartet is completed by Janelle Borg (guitar), Leanne Zammit (bass) and Sofia Rosa Cooper (drums). Together they’ve been shaking audiences to the core with their infectious tunes, and with the honest, relatable themes they attack in their tracks.”
'With a ferocious approach to melding elements of punk and post-punk with a visceral, non-conforming alternative twist, it’s no surprise that ĠENN are turning heads and gaining the attention of the nation.' Yuck Magazine
'DITZ are one of the most vital bands to emerge from the burgeoning UK punk scene in recent years. The quintet announced themselves in 2016 with the cataclysmic 10 minute burst of EP1; a three track offering that drew inspiration from METZ and Girl Band to form an uncompromising barrage of noise-punk. Relentless touring ensued as DITZ brought their incendiary live show to virtually every corner of Europe.
The Brightonian’s have since honed their sound and mission statement, addressing homophobia on 2018’s ‘Gayboy’ and challenging society’s perception of the LGBTQI+ community on ‘Total 90’. The ferocity of these cuts not only caught the attention of the legendary Steve Lamacq, but also brought the band a crop of new fans including IDLES leader Joe Talbot. Illustrious indie label Alcopop! Records were so enamoured by the quintet’s output that they signed them to their imprint late last year.' Gigwise
'Manchester-based garage band Mister Strange have spent the past couple of years sculpting a singular sound for themselves - what they refer to as “wunder-fuzz.” With the release of their latest two singles, “Without a Warning” and “Motor Cat,” the band (who have just recently signed to Australian label Third Eye Stimuli) is finally letting the world hear their unique and idiosyncratic spin on garage rock.' Melted Magazine
'Polevaulter , the Huddersfield-based quartet, has been on the pitch for over two years, the comings and goings of JOHN taking over their sound in 'Secondhand' , a categorical gale of garage darkness whose main terror comes from the tone of the vocals, to which they add an alteration of the strings with some distortion that is an alarm signal for the rest of their discography, taking note of their debut EP 'Common' , with which they add post-punk and alt rock to their stylistic list, thus lowering the momentary state of excitement experienced with its predecessor, to which 'How I Learnt To Stop Chewing The Wasp And Face The Bulldog' returns as he crawls down a corridor whose lights flicker past his garage, reaching a noiserized psychedelic capable of marking the path of its own consequences, 'International Break' and 'Ra' , with which they are capable of touching gangster hell at the same time that Bambara are dancing on her grave, letting shame provide lyrical comfort while gazes are lost in an infinity marked by the vanity of ghosts that are torn between good and evil.'

2-peice noise-jive from LEEds/uk
'Loud, shouty, fuck'
Dance / noise rock band from Leeds
'Bronzed, from Leeds, play danceable noise seasick & sassy enough to pass for a lost 31G band of the early 00s. Consider me on board!...Featuring heads from recently kaput two-drummer funboys Cattle plus someone from the proggier Physics House Band, Bronzed are far from easy listening but conceal everyday appeal inside their jolting grooves.'
