Bands

Bleedin Noses

An ecclectic blend of musical styles, ranging from jazz, punk, indie, rock, folk and blues to the 20s and 40s.
Lyrically we are heartfelt and honest and this is extremely important to us all as a band. Each member sings with two main harmony vocals, both very different, but complementary of each other. This enables us to have fun experimenting with vocal layering and other techniques.
At the moment we are recording and concentrating on getting a creative set together hoping to play a few small festivals in the summer

 

 

 

Blindsyde

Blindsyde are a original style indie band from Oswestry, Shropshire U.K. Formed in the summer of 2000, we are a five piece band, consisting of a lead vocalist, lead guitarist, rhythm guitarist, bass guitarist and drums. Our music has been described as “uplifting” with catchy hooks, an uptempo style, dance beats and funky basslines laying the foundations for an all round unique sound. Our influences range from The Beatles, Gomez, U2, The Stone Roses, and The Happy Mondays. We write all our own songs and have recorded a demo album titled “Rock And Stroll” which sums up our music in a nutshell .To date we have played approximately over 200 U.K dates, our biggest crowd being last summer playing at a live music festival to an audience of 15,000 people. For 2010 we plan to tour, hosting more U.K dates, with the later part of the year to record our second album. We’ve proved to be popular with all our audiences and have sold out of every C.D on every tour date which we find very rewarding and encouraging for us to keep on pushing ourselves forward. 

 

Caroline Peel

Caroline Peel, a  nineteen year old singer/ songwriter originally from
West Wales. I currently live in Central London where I study Performing Arts at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts.
I have been writing music for around five years, and am now creating my first demo album titled ‘Our Ammunition’. My music style is somewhat kooky and quirky and could be looked upon as being unique, but I would like to think the ambience of the music conveys my interpretation of fantasy through sound. I hope you enjoy listening to my work.

 

Cowbois Celtaidd

 

Cowbois Celtaidd are a folk rock collective from Anglesey, Wales, formed from a desire to make an active contribution to the underground festivals, gigs & parties they have frequented for the last decade or so. They were spotted by Gwynfryn Records & put in the studio to make their 1st album “Tatws Pum Munud” Much of the album was written on the way to the studio or actually in the studio itself, which made for some exciting songs. To the surprise of the band, who split up & reformed twice during its making, the album was a huge success selling well all over Wales & reaching #3 in the national chart. 100 gigs, 2 new members, a baby, 2 tours of Ireland, 700 cups of tea & an unmentionable amount of unmentionables later – here we are!

Shifty Chicken Shed

Our genre?

Well that poses a question for us all, ARTS AND CRAFTS, bought cheaply from a discounted charity shop!

Spawned, tiny and hatching without then knowing it in a dimly lit function room, infact, believe it or not, and we don’t,
the one and only Wilfred Owen Peace Meeting at our local boozer, on (Lord of the Rings), MORDA Road, they played ….a cover, non the less, badly.
Shit local band… Shifty Chicken Shed were… born, an immaculate conception just befor Xmas. Drunk and disorderley that night, Shropington Lad was chanted till daylight came when they realised it was all too late and went to bed having formed a band, and sometime in the future, this will all be history.

Sicknote are an explosion of post-punk, techno, breakbeat and thigh slapping hill billy acid punk, or something. Nothing can prepare you for the live show these freaks have in store for you poor bastards. Forget your problems, forget work, forget yourself and GET ON THE BUS……
“they is going one way and they ain’t coming back”
5 losers from Cardiff met at the legendary dodgy all night after party spot, Netty’s Fancy Dress Shop, a few years back and took to the stage to see what would happen if they just ‘winged it’, a lightening bolt smashed through the roof and life was breathed into what was immediately named: Sicknote. Fast forward a few years and Sicknote are touring Europe and headlining several underground festivals and punk and dance events…. with no skill between them, with just pure faith some cheap tricks and an ‘in the moment’ ethos, Sicknote somehow manage to tap into something and whip their audience into a complete frenzy and leave them gagging for more every single time. Get to a live ceremony now, and witness the Sickness.
