    The Line Up
    Art / Punk
    Ex-shabby and current blabby members with hairdresser horns and sometimes ipod theramones.
    Completely improvised musically and lyrically, uncomprimising dark edges and a suprisingly pop overtone…
    “The most important band on the live circuit!” Phillip Collins
    This band is based on the sci-fi of STAR TREK and delivers not only a sci-fi band theme but also follows a stylistic concept of sci-fi lyrics and music, using synthesisers and electronic punk with guitars…
    Brother Mine are a four-piece alt. rock band from London, via Manchester. After several years of bedroom jamming, the band formed officially in 2017, after all four members finally found themselves living in the same city.
    Brother Mine’s songs combine vocal hooks with intricate guitar parts, with a nod to their 90s/00s heroes from both sides of the Atlantic – from Midwest emo to UK indie. Their first EP is planned for late 2018

    (Lauren Laverne BBC6 Music)


    Antony Elvin has a voice as velvety and yearn-full as Scott Walker, he plays the guitar full of contrasts of blissful delicacy and muscular groove, and shares many compositions with Nina Miranda along with several other artists and projects including Hot Brew and The Mighty Boosh.


    Dembis Thioung is a joy to behold live, his warm energy is infectious and rhythms propelling. A rare and mesmerizing master of the Dunduns -the melodic and hypnotic West African bass drums.

    He has played live and recorded albums with internationally acclaimed artists such as Baaba Maal and Carlou D and a member of the drum band Mbolo Percussion, in partnership with Mohamed Gueye, Penny Elkins and Aida Diop.

    After the live music Eclectrick DJs Rev Milo Speedwagon, Craig Whitfield and Jason Leung will me taking you on a musical journey – expect to hear contemporary and retro Latin & African rhythms, underground house, jazzy grooves & dancefloor funk.
