Terror Cult / Scum / Mince / Mood Organ on Friday 19th August 2022
Formed in 2020, they’re a three-piece hailing from the Leeds/Wakefield area and play mangled and trashy alternative rock with songs about anything from Sharon Tate to trees. They are bringing their 'alt-rock-meets-punk-jazz' sound and gigantic pop hooks to the Northwest of England and beyond.
“The facility of the band to mix perfectly indie-pop melodies with more aggressive sonorities and rock riffs is impressive” - WEAREYMX
“The Leeds-based band show their talent - they are strong competitors to be looked out for on the local music scene.”-Music Is To Blame
“Terror Cult are committed to writing and recording ‘punk-inspired music with challenging subject matter and catchy choruses’. Judging by their debut release, they may have a knack for doing just that” - Our Sound Music
Founded in 2018, Scum are a three piece punk band from Leeds, England. Meeting in school at the age of 12, Scum have gone on to make a name for themselves in the underground Leeds Punk Scene, as well as having been among the youngest to play Leeds and Reading festival.
With influences from post punk to hardcore they've been compared to both The Fall and Black Flag. As well as such ringing endorsements as 'supa ghey' and 'feckin wank'.
Armed with a decade long friendship and a name inspired by a zone out into a plate of spag bol, Mince are taking on the Leeds scene with addictive riffs and a rainbow of influences from the burgeoning post-punk scene of their city to waves of 60s psychedelia. Following their first ever show selling out, and the release of the live recording of the gig, the band caught the eye of established producer duo Sugar House to create their debut single DITCH.
'Adopting and adapting classic psychedelic rock, they marry the sound with lyrics that explore life in 2021... they’re definitely up there as one of my top discoveries this year.' - York Calling
“If you're not grinning after listening there's something wrong with your funny bone... Brilliant songs you cannot just listen to but thoroughly enjoy.” - Switch Radio
The sound of West Yorkshire 4-piece Mood Organ is both distinctive and eclectic - with under 10 songs under their belt, the Leeds-based group have maintained a signature style despite having already dabbled in psychedelic, indie, prog and blues rock whilst blending influences from punk and disco. Eccentric, tongue-in-cheek lyrics meet catchy riffs and unusual chord sequences, with each song having a matching visual both in full on YouTube and Spotify Canvas.
