Bridget Hayden

Iconoclastic guitarist and singer. Her solo sets range from skeletal blues to walls of noise.


Acclaimed Leeds duo who are now hooked up with New York label Ba Da Bing, home of some of Natural Snow Buildings biggest releases. Like NSB, Hawthonn fuse folk and drone to explore the darker side of old tradition.


A singular explorer of sound, fearlessly confrontational expansions of the possibilities of music. Passionately breaking boundaries and rules.


Energised experimental music, weird in an honest way and never pointlessly noodling but pushing it all out front. Formerly a member of Smell & Quim and one half of Early Homids.

Andie Brown (aka These Feathers Have Plumes)

Versatile sound artist, producer and composer, recently relocated from London to God’s own county,

Ashtray Navigations

Operating in the twilight world between garage rock and experimental music, Ashtray Navigations have been going since the early 90s and never stop innovating and rocking out in the fuzziest ways possible

Mel Delaney and Anna Peaker

What promises to be a very special collaboration Northern synth manglers Mel Delaney (Ashtray Navigations) and Anna Peaker. Expect electronic music to be dragged somewhere new

Richard Youngs & John Clyde Evans

A rare live duo outing from two of the most enigmatic and elusive personalities in British experimental music. It would be impossible to predict what will happen or even what genre(s) they will be working in. Will it be disco, pop, noise, rock, techno or something else?
