Ben Monteith / Casey Lowry

Ben Monteith wil be playing his first show in months at the Broadcast, Glasgow on the 23/02/17.

This show is only a *180* capacity and will sell out so buy tickets now to miss disapointment.

Ben Monteith –

Rising to fame after his busking videos reached millions across the internet. Ben had become a viral sensation with no major label or agency. He released his track this year to almost a million people on all platforms.

Casey Lowry-

‘Sparkling indie pop at its finest’ – The Indiependant

At the young age of 19 Casey has already sold out some of the UK’s largest and most well know venues without a single release just simply selling tickets through word of mouth from the fans he has picked up supporting the likes of Coasts, The Hunna, and The Sherlocks. With this organic approach expect his Debut single ‘Trampoline’ to fly off the shelves of major retailers when it’s released in late January 2017.

For fans of … The 1975, Two door cinema club, Sundara Karma, The Hunna, Oh Wonder.

So Below

PCL Presents:
So Below


+ Monkoora
Monday 27th February
Broadcast // 7PM // 14+



After having a whirlwind 2016, New Zealand’s reigning queen of goth pop, So Below (a.k.a Madeline North) kicks off this year with first ever UK tour. Beginning in Newcastle on February 26th, the tour will bring her to six cities across the UK, wrapping up on March 7th with a free headlining show in London.


The tour comes in support of So Below’s latest single, “Hard”, the contagiously catchy release that has received rave reviews from local and international music press alike. Clocking in already at over 160K+ streams with an add to Spotify’s prestigious New Music Friday playlist in both the US and Canada, “Hard” is shaping up to be her most successful single to date. Produced by fellow Kiwis Aaron Short (The Naked And Famous, Space Above) and Leroy Clampitt (Taste Nasa), the track marks her first release of new music since the debut self-titled EP in March 2016.


So Below 2017 Tour Dates:
January 10 – Auckland, NZ @ Logan Campbell Centre*
February 26 – Newcastle, UK @ Think Thank
February 27 – Glasgow, UK @ Broadcast
March 1 – Manchester, UK @ The Castle
March 2 – Leeds, UK @The Lending Room
March 3 – Bristol, UK @ Crofters Rights
March 7 – London, UK @ The Shacklewell Arms

* – supporting The Naked And Famous



In The Press:“Hypnotic, dark and undeniably catchy” – V Magazine


“Your new favorite goth princess” – Neon Gold


“Big synths, pulsing bass and dark harmonies are topped with breathy Bat For Lashes vocals…without a doubt our favourite of the lot” – i-D


“This young artist is one to watch” – HillyDilly


“Goth pop with an electronic edge, her stylish catalogue offers a place to move body and the soul” – Clash Magazine

About So Below: 

Since making her musical debut with her single ‘Drift’ and attracting over 90,000 SoundCloud plays in just a few short months, So Below has become the mysterious goth pop chanteuse that everyone can’t stop talking about.


After leaving her native New Zealand in 2013, Auckland’s Madeline North began exploring her vocal talents, inspired by her new surroundings. Layering heavily processed vocals and harmonies over simple yet dark laptop beats, North began to formulate her style into what would so uniquely become So Below. Wanting to carry on this darker, moodier style of electro-pop, North reached out to fellow Kiwi musicians Aaron Short (The Naked And Famous), Sam McCarthy (Kids Of 88, Boyboy) and Leroy Clampitt (Taste Nasa) to help her produce her demos and ultimately complete what was to become So Below’s debut self-titled EP, released in March 2016. With an immediate debut at #5 on the NZ iTunes Alternative chart, the track ‘Sleep’ earning Top 25 placement in Spotify Canada’s Viral Chart and ‘Far’ peaking at #22 on the Hype Machine chart, this global admiration paved the way towards international collaboration and a Remixed version of the EP followed in September 2016.


Having a combined 600K+ plays on Spotify and 250K+ on SoundCloud, the support of notable sites such as HillyDilly, i-D, V Magaine and Neon Gold and receiving high rotation on New Zealand alternative radio, So Below is poised to be one of 2017’s artists to watch. Don’t say you weren’t warned…

Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation

+ Cherrystones
+ Domiciles

In an era in which ‘psychedelia’ can often mean merely a grab-bag of influences from which wah-wah pedals and two-note riffs are dispensed as signifiers and signposts into a realm of easy accessibility as opposed to gateways to another dimension, it can be a rarity to come across a band who are genuinely fixated on creating alternate realities for the listener. Yet this is exactly how Stockholm’s Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation view their incandescent art, and it’s this sensibility that’s led to the kaleidoscopic splendour of their two albums for Rocket Recordings, ‘Horse Dance’ (2015) and ‘Mirage’ (2016).

The band has seen a dramatic rise to prominence since the release of their debut EP ‘Diamond Waves in 2014’ leading to shows in their homeland with Goat and Les Big Byrd, a nomination for a Swedish Grammy as best newcomer, and rapturously received appearances at festivals like Roskilde.

These adventures set the stage for a spectacular movement into the unknown from their earlier work once signing to Rocket Recordings. Their two LPs razorsharp collection of songs that marry dreamlike radiance with hypnotic rhythmic drive, set alight by a prismatic experimental glow. It inhabits a realm in which a propulsive ‘60s-tinged pop song can be elevated skyward with krautrock-tinged repetition, dub echo and analogue curlicues alike, and one in which a Broadcast-style mantra can tap into a psychic lineage that stretches all the way from The United States Of America and Serge Gainsbourg to Portishead’s ‘Third’. Yet whilst ghosts of the like of Laika, Velvet Underground and The Creatures may lurk in the darker recesses of their songs, this is a band paying no homage to bygone glories.

The Liberation cite a myriad influences in both their philosophical stance and their aesthetic, from 12th century iconoclasts like Milarepa to 20th century sonic voyagers like Catherine Ribeiro, and from Kandinsky’s abstract expressions of synaesthesia to the avant-jazz of Moondog. Yet at all times their transcendental extrapolations are married to icy and enticing melodic flourishes, making for a revitalising clash between the chic and the transcendental, and a sound as biting as it is beatific.

The release of their 2nd album ‘Mirage’ was jubilantly received across UK Radio’s BBC6 Music, climaxing in a Lauren Laverne BBC6 Live session and a full European tour with fellow Swedes ‘Goat’ The band will be hitting more European stages for a headline tour in March 2017.

Swansea city rockers TRAMPOLENE, who continue to deliver electrical shockers with their unique combination of garage rock, kitchen-sink poetry and acoustic heartbreakers, release a new five-track-mini-album, ‘Pocket Album Five,’ through Mi7 Records on Friday the 25th November. A single, ‘Divided Kingdom’ mixed by Cenzo Townshend (Jamie T / Everything Everything) is available now when you pre-order ‘Pocket Album Five’ on iTunes: ‘Divided Kingdom,’ a pissed off paean to post-Brexit Britain, is the follow-up to ‘The Gangway’ which was embraced by Radio 1 and Radio X and saw the band have a 30 minute special on the Tom Robinson show on BBC 6 Music along with sessions for BBC Introducing London and Selector Radio.

Bonfire Nights

+ Black Cat Revue

Bonfire Nights make swirling moody psych-pop: a clash of surf and synth, shoegaze with purple haze, Virginia Plain meets Jesus & Mary Chain. Formed by Steve, Ruth and Nicole in 2010, the band split their time between London and their hometown of Brisbane. Adopting a minimalist ethos, they recorded their first EP using a four-track tape machine. While the approach was modest, the outcome was an eclectic mix, ranging from the menacing ‘Own Worst Enemy’ to the sparse dreamy fuzz of ‘Leave Yourself Open’.

Control Social Club presents:

A late night showcase of two of the finest bands both sides of the Irish sea has to offer in Post-punk + Drowned Industrial noises.

Thursday 2nd March @ Broadcast, Glasgow.

Autumns is the musical identity and solo project of Christian Donaghey, from Derry, Northern Ireland, an outlet for transgressive noise, post-punk nihilism and dysfunctional techno. The project has experienced an auspicious ascent in the last couple of years, appearing on a number of cult labels and developing a notorious live reputation. Utilizing a vintage drum machine, a sequencer, a contact mic, performing dubbed vocals and using drones, Donaghey’s high energy, electronic post-punk is a spectacle of unremitting ferocity.

and raised. With her ability to play both the piano and guitar, she developed a unique and
wide repertoire of songs. The best indication of her musical style would be indie-pop with a
bit of roots & soul, while people may say her work echoes the sound of Tracy Chapman,
Ane Brun and Lianne LaHavas. Her unique voice and style are different compared to any
other artist… cial

The Seshen

Beyond Presents

The Seshen

+ Bryony Jarman-Pinto

+ Fenella

The Seshen is a San Francisco Bay Area-based seven-piece led by singer/lyricist Lalin St. Juste and bassist/producer Akiyoshi Ehara. Their forward-thinking sound combines synthesizers, drum machines, live percussion, and entrancing harmonies to create an unmistakable fusion of R&B, synth-pop, and electronic music. St. Juste and Ehara are joined by five remarkable bandmates to create their multidimensional music: vocalist Kash Rockland, drummer Chris Thalmann, keyboard/synth player Mahesh Rao, percussionist Mirza Kopelman, and sampler Kumar Butler. They take inspiration from across the musical spectrum; their individual influences range from recognizable artists (Erykah Badu, Jai Paul, James Blake, Radiohead, and Broadcast) to genres and eras that don’t initially appear to fit together (hip hop, indie rock, early electronica, and 70’s dub). Their unique alchemy of seemingly disparate sounds has led fans and critics alike to describe the band as defying categorization.

The band released Flames & Figures, their full-length debut with Tru Thoughts, on October 14th, 2016. The album was two years in the making and marks an evolution in The Seshen’s distinctive sound. Narrated by St. Juste’s lyrical stream of consciousness, Flames & Figures explores themes of femininity, power, illusion, and loss, as she draws on both her personal experiences and the world of her imagination.

The band remains in high demand, supporting live shows with Hiatus Kaiyote, tUnE-yArDs, Thundercat, Petite Noir and many more. Last year The Seshen played Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater and embarked on a string of U.S. tour dates in the fall of 2016 in support of the album. They are also looking forward to touring Europe in March 2017 after recently signing with booking agency 13 Artists (Tame Impala, Alabama Shakes, Portishead).

Saturday 11th March

Mark Morriss (The Bluetones)

Mark Morriss is a singer songwriter who famously made his
name fronting English indie outfit The Bluetones. Mark
fronted the four piece over a successful and fruitful 15
year period, scoring 14 top ten singles and 3 top ten
albums, whilst touring the UK, Europe and Japan. At the
back end of 2011 the decision was made to disband The
Bluetones, resulting in a shock farewell tour. Hordes of
loyal Bluetones fans turned out in their thousands to give
the band they called their own, a fond and sad farewell.

A case of unfinished business, Mark Morriss has now
turned his attentions to his solo career. After releasing
‘Memory Muscle ‘ in 2008, Mark has since penned material
for a new record. Due for an Autumn release, early demos
recorded with long standing Producer, Gordon Mills (Ed
Sheeran/Newton Faulkner) have sparked great excitement
from fans and industry a-like. Fans have been treated to a
two track giveaway in ‘Low Company’ & ‘Guilty Again’
through the official website

Touring extensively throughout the remainder of 2012 and
gearing towards the much anticipated album release, you
can catch Mark Morriss live as he continues to tour up and
down the UK.

Sweet and Tender Hooligans



As the “ultimate tribute to Morrissey and the Smiths,” LA-based Sweet and Tender Hooligans have been paying homage to the legendary British indie band for more than two decades with their finely crafted tribute show. Performing to sold-out crowds throughout the US and UK, frontman Jose Maldonado channels Morrissey so convincingly that Moz himself has even jokingly taken the stage with the opening line “Hello, we are the Sweet and Tender Hooligans.” From their era-perfect style to Maldonado’s Morrissey-inspired quiff and gladioli, the band never fails to satisfy even the most rigorous Smiths purists, leaving fans to wonder “How Soon Is Now” in regards to their 2017 tour dates.

Formed in Los Angeles in 1992, Jose Maldonado and the Sweet and Tender Hooligans began playing Smiths covers as an answer to the iconic band’s 1987 dissolution. As regional recognition gave way to shows around the country, the band made their pilgrimage to the UK, performing to sold-out crowds and attracting the attention of the BBC. Named the “Best Cover Band in Los Angeles” by the LA Weekly, the Sweet and Tender Hooligans continue pay homage to Morrissey and company with more shows in 2017.


“Jose Maldonado along with the entire band are amazing. If you are a Morrissey or Smiths fan, they are a MUST SEE!”

“If you’re going to see one tribute band, see The Sweet and Tender Hooligans.  Even people that hate tributes love this band!’

“The Hooligans always deliver an amazing gig.  The Mexican front man is charismatic and is happy to lose his shirt.  He delivers an accurate portrayal of Morrissey.  His voice is spot on and the band are tight.’

CELEBRITY FANS:  Boy George, Chloe Sevigny, Arctic Monkeys, Steve Jones of Sex Pistols.  Thomas Lennon (Lt Dangle, Reno 911) plays rhythm guitar with The Sweet and Tender Hooligans.

In 2014 The Sweet and Tender Hooligans were invited by Manchester United to play the Rose Bowl at a friendly between Man U vs LA Galaxy.  It was a sell out – they performed to 70,000 people, and everyone sang along to ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’.

This new show, ‘Is This What I’ve Become is’ is a collection of stories, anecdotes and general stupidity that you’d come to expect from this north-east based comic. It’s not got a theme. It’s not got a message. It’s just an hour of stand up. An hour of stand up from one the UKs hottest comedic talents about stuff that’s nagging him at the moment.

Immi EP launch

3 days after her self titled debut E.P. release, Immi will headline Broadcast with support from Patrick Queen and Medicine Priests.

With R&B pop beats, neo soul influences and promiscuous vocals, Immi manages to create the typical love and heartbreak song without the predictability that normally comes with. The E.P. tells the story of first love, infidelity and heartbreak and will have you dancing, swaying and standing completely still. She manages to pull the listener in with lyrics that are relatable and familiar, but keeps the listener interested with sounds that are sexy and suggestive.

The night will start with some utterly smooth acoustic songs from Patrick before some indie psychedelic rock pop from Medicine priests so be rest assured you’re in for a great night!

Nothing Is Perfect is Pablo Serski’s second solo outing following on from the success of his GICF 2016 debut Et Tu, Brutal.

For Pablo, nothing really IS perfect because he pretty much hates everything about the world we live in. If you’re looking for humour that’s darker than a meth addict’s teeth, complete with killer punchlines and observations that some may find offensive, mixed with dark, cutting edge material and a huge dollop of sarcasm then this is the show for you!

One thing for sure is that, with Pablo Serski, not only is nothing perfect but nothing is off limits.

Ten Fe

+ JW Ridley

+ Foggy City Orphan

When London-based duo Ten Fé were recording their debut album in Berlin, they were listening to a ton of bands like The Cure and Bruce Springsteen, and the Drive soundtrack. “These bass, drum and lush string-synth parts just came through quite naturally,” they say. You can totally hear Bruce’s up-tempo, highway-ready drums on their latest offering, ‘Overflow’, along with Ben Moorhouse’s bittersweet baritone, and nostalgia-tapping synths that’ll probably chime well with anyone who enjoyed Netflix’s sci-fi hit Stranger Things: it’s instantly familiar in the best way.

Dawson Reigns / The Rising / Gary Quinn


In Association With FULL CIRCLE TOURING Present


with GARY QUINN + Special Guests

2016 saw the British country scene grow not just steadily but it exploded. With Country2Country, Buckles & Boots and FSA Fest all seeing their audiences swell, the chart impact of record breaking acts Ward Thomas and The Shires has really seen the country sound break into mainstream. As 2017 gets into flow, 2Country and Nashville Access in association with Full Circle Touring are proud to present a co-headline tour from two rising artists who made their own massive impacts of the British country scene over the last year. Championed by Bob Harries, Baylen Leonard and Chris Country, Nashville based singer/songwriter Dawson Reigns kickstarted his UK campaign last year with the rock-tinged infectious radio hit Love Way All You, which was co-penned by The Shires tourmate Canaan Smith. With his eponymous EP receiving glowing reviews and his brief UK tour in September alongside Holloway Road winning him an army of British fans, Dawson can’t wait to return to the UK. Belfast based quintet The Rising launched their revamped line-up in 2016 with the stunning Last First Love. Having been holed up in the studio for the majority of the year, the group can’t wait to share their new songs with audiences as they build towards their sophomore album. With famous fans including Graham Norton, Gaby Roslin and Alex Lester, the group have opened for Ward Thomas, The Shires and Jess & The Bandits. Joining them on the road is 4 times British Country Music Award winner, including 2016’s Best Male Vocalist, Gary Quinn. 2016 saw Gary release his acclaimed EP, I Remember, which was headed up by the chart topping single Shame. Having worked with Phil Vassar on his Songs From The Cellar, and recently spent time in Nashville co-writing with Steve Wariner, Gary is excited to showcase his material old and new with his fans. Throw in a special guest at each night of tour and you have a truly unforgettable experience that showcases the true diversity of country music.

ONRA (live)

Globetrotting producer Onra has staked his claim as one of the most exciting beat-makers of the past few years, thanks to releases like the 80’s Funk beat album Long Distance, various Boogie edits and his Chinoiseries collections (made with Chinese music samples found while traveling Asia).

His talent for delivering emotive, soulful hip-hop that really hits the spot is demonstrated through his multitude of releases since 2006. Hailing from Paris, Arnaud has produced six albums and even more EPs. Through his various releases, Onra evidently takes influences from a hugely eclectic range of sounds, from Jazz through to Funk and RnB; carefully and respectfully using these styles to craft a unique and refreshing take on traditional Hip-Hop.

Samantha Crain

PCL Presents

Samantha Crain



“ To make an impact as an artist, you have to make people a little uncomfortable,” says Samantha Crain. The musician believed so strongly in this ethos, that she started by shaking up her approach to songwriting. By radically rethinking the way she wrote and recorded her fifth album, You Had Me at Goodbye (out March 24 on Ramseur Records), Crain has managed to put her wholly original aural fingerprint on pop music.

“ Oh, Dear Louis,” the release’ s first single, makes no mistake of Crain’ s new voice. Brightly harmonic, it deftly bridges the song’ s off-kilter rhythms with sharp strings. “ Many pop songs have a lot of cool key changes, modulations, clever lyrics,” she says. “ I wanted to show that pop music isn’ t usually common, uneducated, or uncreative.”

Until now, the musician’ s soulful-nightingale voice had been invested in plaintive, rootsy compositions cut from the Bob Dylan cloth. Based on word of mouth, the organic success of Crain’ s debut, The Confiscation, an EP of evocative narratives, had crescendoed into 2014’ s Kid Face, for which Rolling Stone singled her out as an Artist to Watch. By the time she dropped the gracefully outspoken Under Branch & Thorn & Tree a year later, Crain—who by then had toured with the Avett Brothers, First Aid Kit, and Neutral Milk Hotel—was anointed one of Oklahoma’ s most earnest, underrated storytellers since Woody Guthrie.

So expanding her repertoire with You Had Me at Goodbye was as much an exercise in bilking expectations as it was maturing into a gutsier artist. “ I got described as this girl who sits in a cornfield and writes songs,” she says. “ And I went with it, because I didn’ t really know who I was. I realize now that I missed out on a lot of creative freedom by treating my songwriting so preciously.”

Before penning this album, Crain began listening to a heavy rotation of Cyndi Lauper and David Bowie. She admired Lauper’ s brassy, unhinged singing style. “ Her voice does these things, swoops and moves around—it’ s a pure expression,” Crain notes. “ With Bowie, there was a weirdness to his music, but it was still pop. I was studying his key changes and his song structures.”

Weird is something she has always been comfortable with. Growing up in rural Oklahoma, “ I stuck out like a sore thumb in this conservative, Christian culture,” says Crain, who began by writing short stories as a teen, later fitting those wordsinto melodies. “ It’ s not particularly ‘ normal’ in this part of the country to walk around with yellow hair and be a liberal activist.” Much of You Had Me at Goodbye is about owning, mining, then accepting this difference.

“Oh, Dear Louis,” for instance, is technically about the topic of Crain’ s awkward, if well-intentioned, attempts at comforting a depressed friend. The track, she says, “ is how mixed up my brain gets when I’ m trying to figure out how to act.” She proudly adds that it is accompanied by an equally inappropriate B-movie inspired video: “ I wanted to have some fun with it, make it a campy, ridiculous horror film.”

Meanwhile, the seemingly chipper opening track, “ Antiseptic Greeting,” is actually a tongue-in-cheek retort to people who complain about her Resting Bitch Face. (“ People are out there living their lives, with things on their minds,” she says. “ Don’ t make it about yourself!” ) In contrast, “
Wise One” unfolds like an unlikely romance featuring an oddly charming clarinet solo. “ Every time I try to write a truly giddy song, it’ d end up turning into a break up song by the chorus,” she says, laughing. “ My idea was to start out negative, then see if it could successfully turn into a love song by the chorus.”

She gets away with the unexpected thanks to You Had Me at Goodbye’ s timeless, analog foundation, recorded by John Vanderslice (Spoon, The Mountain Goats). “ He’ s kind of become my recording guru,” says the indefatigable Crain, who penned the tracks at home over five months between shifts at a day job, then recorded the album in a mere seven days at Vanderslice’ s Oakland studio, Tiny Telephone. (The producer, who worked on her past two albums, this time imbued her acoustic-based compositions with a fuller sound using synthesizers, strings, and woodwinds.) “ He brings out the best in my creativity. It’ s like having another band member with you. He thinks in musical terms, not just in terms of frequencies.”

This also helped her be more free with her singing voice. The stark “ Loneliest Handsome Man,” about a melancholic friend, finds her tempering melody into a hymnal hush. One of the album’ s crowning achievements, “ Red Sky, Blue Mountain,” is a powerfully lilting lullaby. An homage to her Native American heritage, she wrote the song in her tribe’ s Choctaw language. “ I have started writing new traditional songs,” she says, “ in hopes that they will help keep our heritage alive.”

Eleven-or-so years into her career, Crain has found the deepest inspiration in just letting go. “ Now that I’ m older, I’ m figuring out how to relate to where I’ m from and how I’ ve grown up, in a way that isn’ t so simplified,” she says. “ I made this record as a healing mechanism for myself and to give people an idea of who I am, where my brain is, where my heart is.”

Trudy And The Romance 2

Wednesday 29th March

Trudy and the Romance

“If anyone’s gonna do anything from Liverpool in the next 12 months, it’ll be this lot” NME
“the most urgent they’ve sounded on record, and undoubtedly them at their most enthralling. Clearly not bereft of vigour nor ideas, you can only wonder with what they’ll come up with next” The Line of Best Fit
“Sounding like a cross between Nick Cave and The Strokes… this track is an extraordinarily, upbeat” The Independent
There’ s a storm brewing over this year and in its eye is where you’ ll find Trudy and the Romance, concocting a veritable witch’ s brew of lovelorn sea shanties and mutant rockabilly pop for all the doo-wop digging rockers who thought these isles would never be hip and happening again.
Their march into infamy has not been a long one. Throughout the past year each successive release has earned them new acolytes in the press and on the wireless. They were part of DIY’s class of 2017 as well as NME’s round up of acts to explode this year. Strong support has come from Radio 1, Radio X, Beats 1 and 6Music (where they were Steve Lamacq’s artist of the week) and fashion tastemakers i-D have also sung their praise. Not content to claw their hooks in the media alone, Trudy and the Romance have caused a pestilential stir on the Spotify viral charts, clawing up to #7 with the salty six-stringed soul of ‘ He Sings’ . Their latest single ‘ Sandman’ also sat at #7 on Hype Machine and helped them cap off their year as the fourteenth most blogged artists of 2016.
The new year brings with it new challenges. With a support slot confirmed for those original masters of tumbledown northern rock The Fall, Trudy and the Romance are making friends in high places. March will see the release of a new EP which will be preluded by a John Kennedy live session for Radio X and their first headline nation-wide tour.

Having established themselves as one of the most exciting live bands on the Scottish music scene in 2016 (Nominated for Best Live Act at SAMA Awards 2016, ‘The best gig I’ve seen in years’ Vic Galloway at XpoNorth) MIRACLE GLASS COMPANY topped it off with the release of their Owen Morris-produced debut album ‘MGC 1’on VoxBox Records in October.

After completing a UK tour supporting the album release the band, comprising WILLIAM DOUGLAS (vocals / bass), ANDY DUNCAN (vocals / drums) and AUSTEN GEORGE (vocals / guitar), are reflecting on a whirlwind year with highlights including a live session for Vic Galloway’s BBC Scotland show,headliningthe TBreak stage at T in the Parkand being shortlisted by Paolo Nutini to support him at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay.Having started the year playingat King Tut’sWahWah Hut for their ‘New Year’s Revolution’ Festival in January, tipping the bands to watch for the year ahead, they have gone on to play London’s legendary Dublin Castle,tour the UK with The Bluetones, fulfil a childhood ambition of playing Liverpool’s spiritual home of music The Cavern Club and take Scotland’s leading music convention XpoNorth by storm,recognised with thatwell-earned nomination for ‘Best Live Act’ at the SAMA Awards 2016. Atriple single release was chosenas an introduction to the forthcoming album, showcasing all 3 members on lead vocals: debut single Higher Than High was released on 3rd May -‘a psychedelic sun drenched beauty’ Netsounds, Big Beat on3rd June -‘ridiculously catchy’ Vic Galloway, and The Hidden Light completing the trilogy on 3rd July–‘swaggering, direct and pleasingly heads-down’ The List. This generated extensive radio play and positive reviewsand wastopped offwith a headline appearance on the T Break stage at Scotland’s biggest festival T in the Park and closing the Edinburgh International Book Festival as part of UNBOUND, curated by Vic Galloway. As purveyors of all things beautiful VoxBox Records recognised that MGC 1 deserved something a bit special and released the album on limited edition, heavyweight blue vinyl (as well as CD and digital), with a gatefold sleeve featuring photography by Owen Morris himself. The album release saw a sold out Cabaret Voltaire gig in Edinburgh followed by dates across the UK, including a packed Notting Hill Arts Club for the band’s first London headline show. As the band start to appear onnumerous ‘best of 2016’lists for both their live show and their album,2017 looks set to be a big year for MGC.

PCL Presents



New Hampshire punk rockers Scissorfight formed in 1995 in the town of Portsmouth. The original lineup consisted of guitarist Jay Fortin (who prefers the stage names Geezum H. Crow and F*** You), bassist Jarvis, and drummer Joel Muzzey. Blending extreme genres such as grindcore and post-hardcore, the band hired vocalist Ironlung (named for his ability to take in illegal substances) to “stand there and look scary.” Relocating to Boston, the band was not easily accepted by the local music scene due to their extreme behavior. At one show, Ironlung dislocated his shoulder and then spent the entire show trying to punch it back into place. Muzzey would leave the band soon after, and was replaced by Ironlung‘s brother Kevin J. Strongbow. They recorded their debut, 1996’s Guaranteed Kill, and found themselves getting quite a lot of press in the underground. The band followed it up with 1998’s Balls Deep, which received good reviews from mainstream publications. Their success in Boston was now quite impressive, and they signed to independent label Tortuga Recordings to release 1999’s New Hampshire. The radio play they received locally earned them a spot at the River Rave festival, where they performed with Cypress Hill and Stone Temple Pilots. They released a covers EP called Piscataqua soon after, and were featured on MTV’s You Hear It First segment. In 2001 they released two albums, the original Mantrapping for Sport and Profit and an album of re-recorded songs to be released in Britain called American Cloven Hoof Blues. A series of EPs (Potential New Agent for Unconventional Warfare, Deathchants, Breakdowns and Military Waltzes, Vol. 2, and Victory Over Horseshit) followed, with the full-length Jaggernaut arriving in March 2006.

Messer Chups

Messer Chups is the low-brow musical concoction of Russian-born artist and musician Oleg Gitarkin, employing audio collage methods to create thick layers of sampling from trash horror films, cartoons, and other diverse sources. Surf rock drums, big-band influences, and cinema clips show the presence of Gitarkin’s western influences, but the band also incorporates antique synthesizers and animations samples identifiable with his Soviet childhood.

In addition to their committed studio presence, the band have toured extensively in Russia, Western Europe, and the United States. Not surprisingly, live shows breach the multimedia, treating audiences to hectic montages of the group’s most cherished works of cinema by directors like Ed Wood and Russ Meyer.

The Molochs

First, let’s meet Moloch. You remember him, right? The ancient god, the child eater, the demander of sacrifice, the villain in Ginsberg’s Howl(and also real life) and now the personal antagonist of singer and songwriter Lucas Fitzsimons, who named his band the Molochs because he knew he’d have to make sacrifices to get what he needed, and because he always wanted a reminder of the Ginsbergian monster he’d be fighting against. And so this is how you make a record right now: you fight for every piece, and when Moloch takes apart your relationships and career potential and leaves you sleeping on couches or living in terrifying apartments and just about depleted from awful people involving you in their awful decisions, you grab a bottle of wine (and laugh at the cliché) and put together another song. And once you do that eleven hard-won times in total, you get a record like America’s Velvet Glory: honest, urgent, desperate and fearless because of it.

Fitzsimons came to his calling in an appropriately mythic way, born in a historic city not far from Buenos Aires and raised in L.A.’s South Bay—just outside of Inglewood—where he was immersed in the hip-hop hits on local radio. (Westside Connection!) The summer d before he started middle school, a close friend got an electric guitar, and Fitzsimons felt an enirresistible inexplicable power: “I’d go back home and I’d look up guitar chords on the internet—even though I had no guitar—and just imagine how I WOULD play them. I was slowly getting obsessed.” When he was 12, his parents took him back to Argentina, and on the first night, he discovered a long-forgotten almost-broken classical guitar in the basement of his ancestral home: “It sounds made-up, but it’s true,” he says. “I didn’t put the guitar down once that whole trip—took it with me everywhere and played and played. When I got back to L.A., I bought my first guitar practically as the plane was landing.”

This started a long line of bands and a long experience of learning to perform in public, as Fitzsimons honed intentions and ideas and tried to figure out why that guitar seemed so important. After a trip to India in 2012, he returned renewed and ready to start again, scrapping his band to lead something new and uncompromising. This was the true start of the Molochs: “It didn’t make any sense to not do everything exactly the way I wanted to do it,” he says. “I was so shy and introverted that singing publicly sounded like a nightmare come true. But I didn’t have a choice—I heard something inside of me and I needed to be the one to express it.”

The first album Forgetter Blues was released with Fitzsimons’ guitarist/organist and longtime bandmate Ryan Foster in early 2013 on his own label—named after a slightly infamous intersection in their then-home of Long Beach—and was twelve songs of anxious garage-y proto-punk-y folk-y rock, Modern Lovers demos and Velvet Underground arcana as fuel and foundation both. It deserved to go farther than it did, which sadly wasn’t very far. But it sharpened Fitzsimons and his songwriting, and after three pent-up years of creativity, he was ready to burst. So he decided to record a new album in the spirit of the first, and in the spirit of everything that the Molochs made so far: “I wanted to spend less time figuring out HOW we were gonna do something and just actually do it.”

The result is America’s Velvet Glory, recorded with engineer Jonny Bell at effortless (says Fitzsimons) sessions at Long Beach’s JazzCats studio. (Also incubator for Molochs’ new labelmates Wall of Death and Hanni El Khatib.) It starts with an anxious electric minor-key melody and ends on a last lonesome unresolved organ riff, and in between comes beauty, doubt, loss, hate and even a moments or two of peace. There are flashes of 60s garage rock—like the Sunset Strip ’66 stormer “No More Cryin’” or the “Little Black Egg”-style heartwarmer-slash-breaker “The One I Love”—but like one of Foster’s and Fitzsimons’ favorites the Jacobites, the Molochs are taking the past apart, not trying to recreate it.

You can hear where songs bend, where voices break, where guitars start to shiver and when strings are about to snap; on “You And Me,” you can almost hear Lou Reed’s ghost call for a solo, and on “I Don’t Love You,” you get that subway-sound guitar and find out what happens when Jonathan Richman’s G-I-R-L-F-R-E-N goes wrong. And of course there’s the charismatic chaos of bootleg basement-tape Dylan—always Dylan, says Fitzsimons—and the locked-room psychedelia of Syd Barrett, especially on “Charlie’s Lips,” Fitzsimons’ ode to—or antidote to—those times when he felt the bleakness completely: “Then a bird lands on a branch nearby, you hear leaves fluttering, you hear a child laughing … all of a sudden things don’t seem so bad anymore.”

So Moloch might still be out there, devouring his sacrifices, but the Molochs are still fighting, too. And that’s why Fitzsimons picked the band name—it’s so he remembers what he’s up against. He’s not celebrating the destroyer of youth and individuality and creativity, he says: “I’m just keeping him in sight so that he doesn’t win.” – Christopher Ziegler

Soft Kill who’ll be taking a day out of their tour with Chameleons Vox to make their long awaited Scottish debut.

Tuesday 16th May @ Broadcast, Glasgow.

Soft Kill

Bio: Portland Oregon’s Soft Kill will be releasing their third full length album Choke on Profound Lore Records. Soft Kill began in 2010 by releasing one of the most highly regarded post punk albums of the last ten years An Open Door. Founding member Tobias Sinclair joins Conrad Vollmer (Warm Hands) on guitar and Owen Glendower on synths. Rooted in influences such as the Chameleons, Wire and The Sound the album branches out, pulling delicately from the foundational elements of Cocteau Twins and Spaceman 3. Choke places the listener deeply under water and leaves them gasping for breath, placing them above hope with tracks like On The Inside, which features the vocals of legendary Mark Burgess of Chameleons. The song draws from the first wave of post punk and slips seamlessly into the cascading and ethereal elements of early shoegaze. The opening track Whirl bleeds together the pop sentimentality of New Order with the dazzling Sheffield sound of Pulp. Lyrically Choke speaks on topics of loss and longing, and the choices we are all asked to make.

Born in the bleak isolation of the secluded prairie city of Edmonton, Canada, Homeshake’s Peter Sagar worked with friends in a number of local bands before picking up and moving to Montreal in 2011 to begin recording under the Homeshake moniker. Following two self-released cassettes (The Homeshake Tapes and Dynamic Meditation) and two acclaimed full lengths (In The Shower and Midnight Snack), Sagar cracks a window open with his third album for Sinderlyn – Fresh Air.

Started immediately following the recording of Midnight Snack, Fresh Air continues Sagar’s exploration of dreamy, downtempo bedroom R&B and draws inspiration from such disparate artists like Sade, The Band, Broadcast, Prince, and Angelo Badalamenti. As the title Fresh Air suggests, Sagar’s songs were created to clear his listeners’ minds of negativity. Full of smokey, laid back love songs and airy productions, Sagar’s decidedly stoned sound is a breath of fresh air.

“Barb Wire Dolls are the most explosive and exciting new punk band I’ve seen in decades! They are gonna change the face of music and save rock and roll as we know it!” – Mickey Leigh/brother of Joey Ramone

Barb Wire Dolls are one of the most vital new bands in music today, representing all that is inspiring and furious about rock and roll. Hailing from an artist commune on the island of Crete, the band sold everything they owned and left crisis-ridden Greece in 2010 for Los Angeles, at the invite of legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer. Upon their arrival in California, Barb Wire Dolls immediately sold out the world famous Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, boasting a live show that is second to none. The band has gone on to melt ears & hearts on 700 stages across 22 countries in just under five years – consistently selling out club dates in America, the UK and Europe.

“Barb Wire Dolls are pure, raw, in-your-face energy; their live performance was nothing short of amazing.” – Portland Music

Electrifying rock of this magnitude did not go unnoticed by the elder statesman of the Sunset Strip, the incomparable, irreplaceable Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. After seeing Barb Wire Dolls live, Lemmy took an immediate interest in the band and placed them under his supportive wing. Ever since his early days, hanging with the likes of Sid Vicious and other punk icons, Mr. Kilmister loved punk rock, having even once penned a track entitled ‘R.A.M.O.N.E.S’ about his close friend Joey Ramone. Disgusted with the current state of rock music and its lack of true rebels, Lemmy saw that the Dolls were the obvious choice to help carry the torch of rock and roll as part of his label, Motörhead Music.

“If you were bummed that you missed out on the Sex Pistols and Black Flag because you were only one, or not even born yet, here’s your chance to catch one of the best bands playing that style today. From their music to their attitude, Barb Wire Dolls embody that same spirit of the late ‘70s punk scene.” – Washington Times

Recorded at Sonic Ranch (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ministry, Gogol Bordello) and NRG (Motörhead, Foo Fighters, No Doubt) studios, Barb Wire Doll’s sophomore album Desperate was produced and mixed by Grammy award-winning producer Jay Baumgardner (Bush, Evanescence, Lacuna Coil) and mastered by Grammy award-winning mastering engineer Howie Weinberg (Nirvana’s Nevermind, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Blood Sugar Sex Magik, U2’s Pop). The ten song album contains gripping rock tracks,

empowering anthems, and hard-edged thrashers, all performed with the classic punk rock energy the band has become internationally known for. As members of Motörhead Music, Barb Wire Dolls are represented by Lemmy’s long-time manager Todd Singerman, Motörhead’s booking agents, and parent label UDR/Warner Music Group. Desperate’s release through Motörhead Music serves as an edgy, thrilling first chapter in the life of a label whose mission is to present the most fiery new bands in rock and roll.

“Barb Wire Dolls are the new face of Punk. The Dolls deliver real authentic punk rock with 70’s CBGB style swagger with an oversexed frontwoman who makes Debbie Harry in her 70’s prime look downright homely, while singing like Patti Smith channeling Johnny Rotten.”- Music Entertainment

Fronted by the whip-smart vocal and fashion icon Isis Queen (named after the Greek Goddess herself), Barb Wire Dolls intelligently weave sub-genres of punk, grunge, and metal, producing an urgent sound that is truly unique. The group’s dynamic musicianship is blasted forth by former pro surfer & skateboarder Pyn Doll on lead guitar, Krash Doll on drums, Iriel Blaque on bass, and Remmington on rhythm guitar. In 2012, the band encamped themselves in Nirvana noise-guru Steve Albini’s recording studio to produce their debut, Slit, over the span of just two days. Garnering critical acclaim and comparisons to the likes of Nirvana, Blondie, and the Ramones, Slit and its chart-topping lead single ‘Revolution’ powered the band to almighty festival headliner status (shredding fest-stages atop 12 countries), while simultaneously gracing the covers of 15 magazines. Few female-fronted punk bands in history have made a more immediate and tangible impact on their contemporary musical landscape.

“Barb Wire Dolls have emerged as the new voice of real punk rock with their mesmerizing, spellbinding exhibition of attitude-laden, high-octane punk rock.” – Metal Assault

Apart from touring on their own name and playing main stages at major festivals around the world including Riot Fest (USA), Rebellion (UK), Mighty Sounds (CZ), Brincadeira (SP), Foud’ Rock (FR), and Bochum Total (GER), Barb Wire Dolls have also co-headlined dates with the likes of GBH, Fear, Mike Watt, Sham 69, Discharge, Cockney Rejects, The Ataris, Murder Junkies, CJ Ramone, 999, Status Quo, Mushroomhead, and Candlebox, as well as playing direct tour support for Jello Biafra, NOFX, Descendents, Bouncing Souls, and Steel Panther.

“Barb Wire Dolls are punk rock all the way to the bone!” – Vice

In 2015, Barb Wire Dolls were bestowed the honor of headlining the annual Joey Ramone Birthday Bash in New York City…and 2016 saw the invitation extended once again. Past headliners include Green Day, New York Dolls, Blondie, Cheap Trick, The Damned and Joan Jett. The Doll’s performances have attracted members of the Sex Pistols, Black Flag, Guns N’ Roses, L7, Blondie, Dead Kennedys, Aerosmith, Foo Fighters, Kreator, Sonic Youth, UK Subs, The Damned, and Die Toten Hosen, among others.

“Every few years or so a band comes along that changes the music landscape. They are different from the other bands that are out there. They bring something new and exciting to an otherwise generic music scene that the public has grown tired of. The Beatles did this, The Sex Pistols did this, Guns N’ Roses did this, Nirvana did this. But for the past 20 years no band has been able to stand out from their predecessors. No band has been able to re-ignite the music scene, to bring back the energy it once had…that is until now. With their sound, their look, and their attitude, Barb Wire Dolls are going to do what no band has been able to do within the last two decades…take the music industry by storm.” – Sugarbuzz

Desperate is being released world-wide this summer in conjunction with the band’s debut performance at Germany’s Wacken Open Air, the largest metal festival in the world. Out to smash all misconceptions about women in rock today, Barb Wire Dolls’ cultural and musical immediacy is not to be missed

Aldous Harding
Thursday 25th May

4AD welcomes Aldous Harding, a remarkable talent from New Zealand. Today, she presents a powerful opening statement with a new song ‘Horizon’ and startling companion video.

Aldous Harding’s music is not for the faint of heart. Disarming in its desolate imagery and stark instrumentation, her songs draw from the core facets of life: death, birth, grief and love. There are few happy endings, but the power is in how Harding enters into battle; with a dancer’s grace and a boxer’s stance.

Harding initially ignited interest with her eponymous debut album released just two years ago. With echoes of folk luminaries Vashti Bunyan and Linda Perhacs, Harding’s work is one step removed from the modern world, but lies in more savage terrain than her forebears, wrought with a wry wit and tenacious gall.

For her 4AD debut, Aldous – real name Hannah – Harding has been working with award-winning producer John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse), and ‘Horizon’ offers an enticing preview of that collaboration. The confrontational accompanying video, directed by Charlotte Evans, and produced by Evie Mackay, stars a combative Harding and her mother in the New Zealand hinterland
