The Bishops

Heralding from London, the band consist of twin brothers Mike Bishop (vocals, guitar) Pete Bishop (vocals, bass), younger brother Alex Bishop (vocals, guitar) and Scotsman Chris McConville (drums). The band recorded their self-titled debut album 'The Bishops' at the infamous Toe Rag Studios, produced by creative analogue genius Liam Watson. This was released internationally in 2007 and followed up with their second album 'For Now' in 2009. 'For Now' was recorded at Bark Studios in London with indie veteran Brian O'Shaughnessy. Later that year the band celebrated their 500th gig at the historic 100 club in London.

At the end of 2009 they extended the band from a three piece to a four piece lineup, welcoming younger brother Alex Bishop into the band. They recorded an EP 'Sojourn' in 2010, their first material together. It marked a departure from the prominent garage/beat sound of their first two records into a more contemporary and alternative direction. Check out songs 'Nowhere To Run' and 'Finding Out' on the tracks page. The band have recently finished recording a brand new album provisionally titled 'All Lost Time' which looks set for release internationally at the start of 2013.



UP are a 4 piece from London who came together to pen a collection of songs so bright that their blazers and sparkly white teeth sit comfortably in the mix,

They write dangerously catchy, stadium-sized electronic pop rock with more hooks then a fisherman’s hut. 

Up have been recording with the likes of producer Cam Blackwood (We Are Scientists, Alabama 3 and Brother and previously mixed work from Cee-lo Green, Jamiroquai and CSS) 

"The bastard lovechild of Suede and Tears for Fears, UP's sophisticated power pop will have your limbs flailing."


Turnpike Glow 

Turpike Glow started life in Rome as aspiring young hopefuls in a scene marginalised by Italian pop and insider trading. But with their Beta Band-Flaming Lips inspired sound they soon found themselves supporting acts like Cooper Temple Clause, The Futureheads, The Others and The Constantines. In 2007 they started flying over to do live shows England and it soon became clear that the UK was where the band could find a receptive audience and so the songwriting core of the band, Sandro (vocals/guitar) and Giuseppe (vocals/bass/keyboards), moved to London armed with just their guitars and lots of European plug adaptors. One rainy Sunday they bumped into Anthony on the tube in a giant sombrero. They talked, they laughed and eventually, they joined force. Their line-up was recently complete with the addition of Tom P. Griffiths (guitar/BV’s).

Sebastian Melmoth

Sebastian Melmoth is not a folk singer. They are a semi-alcoholic trio who come from a little-known village named London. They tend to play hypnotic art music. This means that they sound like three caged monkeys that sing disquieting protest songs as they compulsively masturbate into their morning cereal. But don't let that scare you! Sebastian Melmoth are also great conversationalists and enjoy discussing politics after the show. So if you don't dig the music at least there is some challenging discourse to look forward to.

“If you can overlook the miserable sound, then Sebastian Melmoth do quite well here as they throw the kitchen sink into their music, smash a few plates and end up coming out of it smelling of citrus fresh fragrance.”
Bluesbunny - Bluesbunny

“Blessed with a really good sound, they come over like a cross between Slowdive, Bauhaus, Band Of Susans and a little bit of Spacemen 3, with lots of drones and good trippy sounds. ”
Simonovitch - Whisperinandhollerin

“Hang on, let's go back to Sebastian Melmoth, for his (sic) music is not completely shit. In fact, some of it is actually quite nice: I'm Emo-no-emoting intonations drifting careless as clouds over gas-leak guitar distortion and lead lines that come to tangle like drunk, jealous men.”
Kev Kharas - The Stool Pigeon
