Red Faces + Das Plastixx & The Usual?
RedFaces are Harry Lyon, Isaac White, Charlie Yapp and Ryan Laycock. Four lads from Sheffield treading what was once a well-worn path, these days the road less travelled. The journey started at 2Fly studios in Sheffield, recording demos with Alan Smyth, the man behind the Arctic Monkey’s first ventures. Out of these sessions came the band’s first release ‘Katie Come Home’ in early 2015 – championed by BBC Introducing it also attracted the attention of the London A&R fraternity, eventually signing with RCA last year.
It’s already been a jam-packed year for the band, from playing a sold out set at Live at Leeds last month, to sponsoring the kit for their local football team Ecclesall Rangers, RedFaces are showing no signs of slowing down. Latest single ‘Wise Up’, the follow up to last year’s incendiary debut ‘Kerosene’ is currently setting playlists alight across the board.

He’s filmed performances using 19 launch pads simultaneously and has worked with Novation to demo and launch new products online.
Avec Sans supported Ladyhawke on her 2016 UK tour and have played alongside acts such as Little Boots, Capital Cities, Bright Light Bright Light and The Pet Shop Boys.

PSYCH SUNDAY III : BO NINGEN + Mr TC + Sweaty Palms
This year’s PSYCH SUNDAY headliners, BO NINGEN are a Japanese four-piece acid punk band consisting of Taigen Kawabe, Yuki Tsujii, Kohhei Matsuda and Monchan Monna. Though they come from Gumma, Tajimi, Nishinomiya, and Tokyo, they coalesced in London.
Musically, they channel their country’s legacy of obscure, brain-warping heavy-psych: Les Ralizes Denudés, High Rise, Sweet and Honey and Flower Travellin’ Band all traceable beneath their esoteric sound. It’s evident from the place they had all found themselves in their twenties however that they were in the mood for discovery: they regurgitated their tastes in Acid Folk and Noise and hurled them into the electric cataclysm too. Though challenging to process, any cautious, sensible listeners were saved by a weighty dose of Sabbath and Nirvana.
They’ve released 3 fantastic albums and have toured with Primal Scream, collaborated with Savages, earning widespread acclaim from the likes of The Quietus, DIY, Line of Best Fit and The New York Times. To them “Being ‘psychedelic’ means to stand quietly / loudly in the middle of interzone and stare at both sides at once”.

UK Country Live! presents: Holloway Road + Jade Helliwell
Holloway Road are Jack Cooper and Robert Gulston both originating from sunny Southend-On-Sea. But these aren’t your ordinary Essex boys. Instead of tanning or getting their vajazzles done they’re creating “free big in your face” country pop music. Jack and Robert being in their mid twenties now have had their fair share of experience writing and playing around the world.
Having gone to school and working in the same musical projects together Jack and Roberts habit for writing and producing stems from the idea of just being able to write about being real and having a good time. Just some of their influences are Florida Georgia Line, Kacey Musgraves, The Eagles and Mumford and Sons and drinkin’ a beer!
With their debut self titled EP entering the top 10 UK iTunes Country album charts, spending time in Nashville and being invited to play the Martin Guitar stage at the CMA Festival last year, heading out on the road with US number 1 hit writers ‘John & Jacob’ for their UK dates and a slot at this years C2C Festival at the O2 London; Jack and Robert are well on their way to imprinting their own footprint in the country community.

Slim Cessna’s Auto Club
In September 2016, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club released their new album, The Commandments According to SCAC. It has been 24 years since Slim Cessna parted ways with The Denver Gentlemen, that grand progenitor of the peculiar strain of Gothic Americana unique to the Mile High City, to form Slim Cessna’s Auto Club with a group of talented peers.
Many bands with a long and successful run like that would stick close to its roots. But rather than rest on well-earned laurels, the Auto Club challenged itself to break with well-worn modes of operating for the new record.
