Hot Vestry

Signed to Tim Burgess’ O Genesis Recordings, the Macclesfield group deal in dark, glinting post-punk and have appearances at Kendal Calling and Blue Dot Festival lined up.

Ghost Outfit

– Returning for their first hometown public show in nearly a year, the noise rock group have bulked up to a four piece and have new material to air following their Sways Records-released debut LP, I Want You To Destroy Me. “Quite brilliant” – The Quietus


Favourites of Marc Riley and BBC 6music, Mother are another group with new material in the works, the group adding new, harsher edges to their ethereal ambient pop.


Reminiscent of anything from Dean Blunt to Nine Inch Nails, Werk have released two tapes so far on their own I Hate My Records imprint, varying from brutal industrial rock to manipulated samples and chopped up vocals.


Formerly Mothers, the Widnes trio have quickly established themselves as one of the most popular bands within Manchester’s noise rock scene, appealing to everyone from the heads to the punks.

Black Lung

Electronic duo with only a couple of videos to their name, they deal in murky, sparse soundscapes and can already count appearances at Manchester Psych Fest and supporting Gang of Four to their name
