🎃THE OTHER ONES🎃
London based quartet who write loud, fuzz drenched pop songs.
"Where the gutsy politics of Sleater-Kinney meets the playfulness of The Ramones, their clever lyricism brings to mind The Buzzcocks" - Nightshift Magazine
LISTEN TO THE OTHER ONES NEW EP HERE:
Selphie (synth & vox) and Nat (guitar & vox) are PANIC POCKET. They write catchy songs about trash men, bad bosses and being creepy on the internet. You will love them more than you love your vibrator.
🎃GIRLS LKE US🎃
3 Scumbags playing punk & grunge shit from SE & SW LDN. That noise your cat makes when she’s on heat.
Look out for GLUs upcoming EP - Otherwise listen to them HERE
Spit Sisters are an alternative rock band from London with unique, catchy and downright dirty tunes - inspired by punk, grunge and riot grrrl bands. Formed early 2019. Feminist working class queer punk rock!
In a studio on the outskirts of London, a group of girls prepare for battle. Each week they unpack their guitars, drums and microphones. They write riffs, pound out bass lines, stomp drum beats, and lyrical screams can be heard echoing around them; they are loud, fast paced, angry, heavy and unstoppable.
Lady Rage are a band like no other. Their girl riot esc sound, spliced with aggressive punk riffs, grungy undertones and rocky beats are a perfect match of genres. These chicks equal trouble and won’t play by the rules. Ready to shake things up, they’ll break through the endless ordinary, simplistic, popular, meaningless cascade of artists and burn the strings of the puppeteers working behind every money-hungry entertainer monopolising the music industry today. The target to dominate music is in sight but their battle has only just begun. Enemies loom and many obstacles to overcome draw near.
You’ve been warned.
Keep watching if you want more.
"I'm a musician from Blackpool, I've been in various bands & projects as well as gigging as a singer-songwriter. Right now I play guitar & sing in grunge/punk/rock band The Poly-Esters. I also run an open mic slash jam night here in Blackpool."

🎃NAZ & ELLA🎃
Naz & Ella are an indie-folk duo writing about more than just love and heartbreak. While they are not opposed to writing the odd love song, it is current political and social issues that have captured the attention of this indie-folk duo, which inspired their debut EP, In Limbo. Aptly named, In Limbo focuses on the state of uncertainty that personal and social issues, or even political events can induce. With songs about Brexit (In Limbo) and the freedom to love (Love Is Love) featured on their EP, Naz & Ella voice their thoughts on topics frequently neglected in music.
Naz & Ella are influenced by other female duos such as First Aid Kit and The Pierces. Listeners have compared their stripped back sound, comprising vocals and guitar with the occasional percussion, to The Staves and a female Simon & Garfunkel. The indie-folk duo combine intricate fingerstyle guitar with ethereal harmonies which have been described as “formidable and defiant” by Fresh On The Net.
Since the release of their debut EP, Naz & Ella have been featured on several radio stations including Tom Robinson’s 6 Music BBC Introducing Mixtape, BBC Introducing London, and Radio DIVA. Their debut single Love Is Love was selected as ‘Track Of The Week’ by BBC Introducing Beds, Herts, and Bucks, where it was played across the station throughout the week. This led to being invited by BBC Three Counties radio to perform live on Saturday Breakfast with Justin Dealey.
You can find out what Naz & Ella are currently working on by visiting their website nazandella.com

Friday 29th november | Baba Yaga's Hut Presents: sly & the family drone/ workin’ man noise unit/ reciprocate
Sly & The Family Drone
Expect a 'frenetic, a wild, free jazz cacophony, a melange of clamorous, ultra-hyped horns, sonorous lowed drone and is dominated by truly frenzied, cacophonous bent. Circuits fizz and hum while the percussion thrashes and crashes arrhythmically, throwing the listener around with reckless abandon a roller coaster of tempestuous sonic mania'
Sly's reductionist take on music is literal; they split their drum kit to its singular base units, passing individual drums to the audience who maintain the beat while they free themselves for more noise and freestyle mayhem, ultimately eliminating any boundaries between spectator and performer. This egalitarian approach propels audience and band together into a shamanistic setting of catharsis and anarchic celebration. By the end of the set their drums and equipment are scattered; the remnants of their music lying bare across the floor.
There is no place for guitars within this band.
"Their live shows are becoming legendary. Things usually get broken. There will be more than likely blood. A must see live experience. No gig by Sly & The Family Drone is ever the same." Club Velocity 2011
The ampersand is obligatory.
Workin’ Man Noise Unit
We're one of them rock'n'roll bands. We mostly live in Reading. Mostly. We think our farts stink.
Members: The Tradesman // Kiplet // Krang // Crinkil of the Crinkils
Co-conspirators: Riot Season // Blow The Reactors // doubledotdash!?

SATURDAY 30TH NOVEMBER | THROWBACK PRESENTS: MAKE EMO GREAT AGAIN
Join us as we take you back in time to the days when things were just plain, simple and miserable. Yeah you know those days drinking in the park listening to My Chemical Romance on your Sony Ericsson.
The days when you used to get in trouble for changing your top 8 friends on Myspace or when you used to get bombarded with bulletins (Wonder why you are still single? YOU SHOULD HAVE SENT THEM)
And more importantly when you used to say RAWR and MEANT IT!
expect to hear:
Taking Back Sunday/ The Used/ My Chemical Romance/ Fall Out Boy/ Blink 182/ Panic At The Disco / Paramore / All Time Low/ Funereal For A Friend/ Atreyu /Asking Alexandria/ Escape The Faith/ Death Cab For Cutie/ From First To Last /Silverstein / AFI/ Underoath/ Coheed and Cambria/ Alexisonfire/ 30 Seconds To Mars/ At The Drive In / Say Anything/ Weezer/ Jimmy Eat World/ Thursday/ AFI/ Finch / Mayday Parade/ Metro Station / Motion City Soundtrack/ New Found Glory / Saosin
