Hookworms // Broken Arm // Year of Birds

Hookworms are easily our favorite new band and their limited edition 12″ vinyl release on Gringo Records last year is utterly astounding. They even got a mention in The Guardian as the new band of the day. From Leeds their classic 80′s/90′s space-psych-rock drones are reminiscent of Spectrum, Spaceman 3 and Can and you can’t help but hearing repetitive melodies not unlike Happy Mondays and early Verve.

Broken Arm, also on Gringo Records these lads are a Leeds noise punk staple. The good old tight variety, amazing guitar sound, fantastic drums, solid bass and an energetic front man. You really need not ask for any more.

Listen here

Year of Birds – new band on the new, local label Ack, Ack, Ack records equals excitement. And so you should be, this band is great and just what we’ve been waiting for round these parts. Can’t wait to witness their brilliance live.

So come along for our first gig of 2012. The last couple were an absolute blast as we’re sure this will be.

MIddlesbrough needs us

So we have decided to put some gigs on in Middlesbrough, seeing as that is near to where we reside and the people of Boro need some good music to listen to!

First up is a Leeds splendor gig with Cowtown and Beards playing in the Pop Up art space.
