// BALAAM AND THE ANGEL //
Alternative Post Punk / New Wave / Gothic Rock pioneers Balaam And The Angel were amongst the front runners in the early to mid 1980s alternative scene and spawned the highly successful Chapter 22 Record label (responsible for the initial releases from The Mission, Neds Automic Dustibin, Pop Will Eat Itself) before moving on to Virgin Records. The band toured relentlessly playing in the UK, Europe and North America, and enjoyed much success with their own sell out shows as well as appearances at Reading Festival and with bands such as The Cult, Iggy Pop, Aerosmith, Kiss, Midnight Oil, The Mission, Killing Joke etc.

// THE CREATURE COMFORT //
Manchester's The Creature Comfort bring melodies that never fail to stick, sonic intensity, surreal lyrics with a universal appeal and full-on rock’n’roll performance. From deep-fried psychedelic soul to bubblegum power pop, these sounds come from the edge.
LOUDER THAN WAR - “Should be held in the same esteem as Joy Division, Oasis, Stone Roses.”
BADLY DRAWN BOY - “One of the best live bands I’ve seen in years. Brilliant energy and great, interesting songs.”- Badly Drawn Boy
BLACKTHORN FESTIVAL - “Great front man – Jim Morrison meets Iggy Pop – a top combination.”
EVIL BLIZZARD - "If you think we're intense wait until you see this lot."

// ONE SIDED HORSE//
One Sided Horse is the brain child of Mark Whiteside and is his first solo effort away from the radically different Evil Blizzard where "Side" his singing drummer alter ego haunts audiences from the back of the stage. Here we see Mark move front and centre and with the help of some of his friends, create a new kind of sound which fans of Mark's work, will love. Mark has shaped a collection of songs which are a far cry from his previous work, both haunting and melodic the album will be worth waiting for.
