The Bar Stool Preachers – Live

They’re our Indie Band of the Year, and they’re live in the studio!

The Bar Stool Preachers

They won our coveted track of the year award on our last show, and now the Bar Stool Preachers are playing live in the Hungry & Hunted studio.

The hot young Brighton band are as bracing as a 6am plunge in the English Channel.

Influenced by 2-Tone and streetpunk, the Preachers are in the vanguard of the new south coast sound that is as passionate as it is authentic and melodic. A proper alternative to mainstream pop pap.

Other great bands this edition include Alan McGee’s new signing Alias Kid who are latest of Manchester’s swaggering terrace pop likely lads. Will they follow Oasis into the charts? McGee certainly thinks so.

  • On Trial, Reading punks with brains and punch
  • Christine ‘Sugary’ Staple, with her ‘Original Rude Girl Sound’
  • New Hampshire’s granite-hard Iron Chin, where streetpunk meets arena rock
  • Punk veterans Sonny Vincent & Spite, including members of the Damned, the Sex Pistols and the Stooges
  • Glasgow’s boisterous Amphetameanies who marry 2-Tone with 1977 energy and backstreet attitudes.
  • New Mod heroes The Spitfires from Watford
  • X-Ray Junction from mid-Wales with their addictive brand of melodic punk
  • Adelaide’s ballsy indie-punks Young Offenders
  • Prins Carl from Sweden, who have been described as Cock Sparrer meet Perkele
  • UK punk veterans The Boys currently enjoying a creative second wind
  • The Crunch with their blend of sinewy power pop and top drawer musicianship
  • Hard-hitting Texan streetpunks Sniper 66
  • And the extraordinary Pimpmane with his fresh and endearingly bonkers ‘Swag’ sound.

This is are the sound of the streets, the poison in the pop machine. Can you take it?

Alias Kid

Alias Kid

Only six months after forming, Manchester band Alias Kid were signed to 359 Music by industry mogul Alan McGee. The band fuses 60’s style anthems with an eclectic mix of influences from the 1970’s to the present day, creating a sound that is at once familiar and yet still unique.
Alias Kid have recently joined the roster of the iconic Creation Management, home to The Jesus and Mary Chain andWilko Johnson. The band recorded their debut album in The Gorbals Sound Ltd Studios in Glasgow with Paul Quinn (Teenage Fanclub/Soup Dragons) and Kevin Burleigh (Glasvegas/Simple Minds).
In under a year as a band, Alias Kid have risen from obscurity to headline shows in Manchester and Liverpool, secured national airplay on XFM and have won plaudits from those within the music industry, many of whom are touting Alias Kid for huge success in 2015.

Sonny Vincent & Spite

Line Up: Sonny Vincent – Testors – Vocals and Guitar Rat Scabies – The Damned – Drums Glen Matlock – Sex Pistols – Bass Steve Mackay – Stooges – Sax

OUT NOW on CD, LP, limited colored LP Collectors package including limited record bag available from the Label!

Three years in the making, four RocknRoll bastards get together to fuck shit up. Totally on fire, call the motherfucking fire department now, these bastards have a vengeance!

The kick ass songs are not playable in police stations, the freedom bell frenzy is banging way too loud. Strap yourself in for a wild ride that takes you from a dark alleyway to a far away planet of Love and mercurial radiance.

Warning: some tracks are not recommended for children or folks with heart conditions. It’s ugly, it’s beautiful, it hates, it loves, and it’s “Spiteful”.

“I like to go wild, and have a good time, but I can also be very focused and serious. I am not the type to go around giving fake hippie hugs to people. If I say something, I mean it. I appreciate ‘soul’. I know this album will deliver some to you.”
– Sonny

The Spitfires

The Spitfires

The Spitfires new single ‘Stand Down’ will be released on Limited 7” Vinyl and Download on Monday 2nd March on their own Catch 22 label.
The Spitfires hail from Watford and have been writing and gigging since 2012. The band is led by archetypal front-man Billy Sullivan, spitting real lyrics based on real experiences of growing up in Watford over classically written pop songs The Spitfires have previously released three critically acclaimed singles (Spark to Start, Tell Me and I’m Holdin’ On) and gigged extensively at home and abroad. They have made fans new and old alike immerse themselves in the raucous and electric live show the band spit off of the stage. This incredible live reputation has led them to previously support The Specials at London’s iconic Roundhouse and to being personally invited by Paul Weller to support him in on his UK tour in March.
‘Stand Down’ was recorded at CDS Studios in Chelmsford, produced by Tom Pullen, and mastered at the iconic Abbey Road Studios. The track bundles into three minutes, Billy’s outlook on further education as being the be all and end all of a 21st century teenager’s life.
‘Stand Down’ is the first track to be released ahead of their as yet untitled debut album, which is slated for summer 2015. Full details TBC.

Young Offenders

Young Offenders

Young Offenders recently supported Californian punk icons The Dead Kennedys on their 2014 Australian tour to which they got great reviews…

“Opening act Young Offenders hit the stage around 8PM. Emerging band on the Adelaide music scene; but suitably seasoned and shit-sharp: in a snot-nosed, spring-loaded, blisteringly punk live performance that very much holds its own. In a sound? Think a cross between The Clash, The Ramones, Green Day, perhaps a dash of The Specials and The Living End.

Songs are suitably varied, inspired and frequently rife with uber-catchy/shouty choruses. And by the looks of the enthusiastic crowd flailing up front ever more energetically towards the end of their set? They might just have won some new fans here too.”
