The Spook School are four friends from Edinburgh using a raucous mixture of indie-pop, feedback and nudity to create a fun live show.Their debut album 'Dress Up' came out on Fortuna POP! in 2013 with lead single 'I'll Be Honest' gaining airplay on 6music with Steve Lamacq, being playlisted on Amazing Radio and the video being described by Clash Magazine as "A joyous, colourful, comedic visual rant".

Lovely things important people have said about them...

"Sweetly shambolic" - The Guardian
"the future is safe in The Spook School’s hands." - MusicOMH
"Simple, fun, loud and sweaty" - Artrocker

Heathers is the love & squalor guitar pop trio from Los Angeles consisting of Michael Francis, Thom Lucero, and Michael Wegener. The band formed in 2013 and released their first 7", "Teenage Clothes", on Death Party Records in September of that year. The band's second 7" is due out on Death Party in April. This is not only their visit trip to the UK but their first tour ever, so be kind and bring flowers. Heathers are currently working on their debut LP.

Finnmark! is a Leeds-based pop band, focusing their attention on the things most important to them: Scandinavian cinema, islands of the Swedish archipelago, and cycling everywhere they go. They have a penchant for cats, exclamation marks, and vintage photography.

Swiss duo, Klaus Johann Grobe, play a kind of danceable Krautrock informed by early '80's New York punk funk pioneers such as ESG.
Driven by an organic yet metronomic beat aligned with synth, chant-like vocals and a monstrous funky bass, this is seriously bum waggling electro-freak goodness. The music does seem to aim towards a certain kind of hypnosis, particularly as the sleeping pill echo-heavy vocals cycle over the locked grooves the pair throw down.

This band are certainly aiming towards the more dance-orientated arena of Kraut music, aligning the metro pulse of Klaus Dinger and Kraftwerk's calculators to more biological factors - kind of like moss growing on the mainframe.

The duo played selected UK dates in early 2013 in support of their vinyl only album release that gained a great Shindig review, Louder than War artist of the day and Norman Records Single of the Week.

Klaus Johann Grobe will return in September 2013 with a single release to coincide with their UK tour and appearance at the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia.

If the measure of a true artist is their inability to stand still then Ethan Johns easily fits the bill. Having achieved the upper reaches of success as a producer (Ray Lamontagne, Kings of Leon, Tom Jones, Paul McCartney, Laura Marling) the artist's voice inside Johns' head could not be quieted. His first solo record, If Not Now,Then When?, released in Summer 2013 was received with acclaim by fans and critics alike. According to the venerable Bud Scoppa, "The results are so convincing the only question is what took him so long?"

For his subsequent record, Johns trades places behind the glass with long-time friend and collaborator Ryan Adams. The Adams-produced album, The Reckoning, was born on tour in the UK, Europe, and the U.S., inspired by the landscapes of the countryside and snippets of life in each stop along the way. "I'd rather learn about the world by traveling than by picking up the newspaper everyday" says Johns. The songs rally around themes of action and consequence, musings on the effects of individual choices and how to navigate the uncertainty of life. The Reckoning is a collection of stories in song, captured in the moment. The Reckoning is slated for a Summer 2014 release.
