The Lorelei + Ten Tonne Dozer + No Hope Astronaut + Attica Rage

Recommended Posts


The Lorelei - www.myspace.com/theloreleiprogression - "The Lorelei are the sound of a hundred broken hearts, a thousand broken bones, crushed and reconstructed. You need them." ...And we're back. Old favourites, new tunes, same spirit. And we can't wait to get back on that stage again. For the unin-itiated, it's the sound of a mandolin and a fuzzed-up Les Paul mixing it with some folk punk acoustic guitars. Plus wailing vocals and a violin.

No Hope Astronaut - www.myspace.com/nohopeastronaut - Sublime songwriting, left-field hooks, claustrophobic melodies and moments of restrained brutality. Lyrical themes like death, sex and surveillance. A rhythm section strung tighter than a smackhead one day into rehab and a front man who truly puts heart, soul & calories into each performance. Like Biffy Clyro, Trail of Dead, Coheed and the Deftones before them, the band refuse to be defined by one simple genre. "Post-Hardcore, as brainy as it is bold.. theyt sound like Biffy Clyro if they had tunes you could whistle in the dark. Elsewhere there's a dab of chug-a-chug greats Helmet to their sound, or Your Code Name Is:Milo at their most barmy. No Hope Astronaut are one slab of rawkwonder worthy of your time." - NME.

Ten Tonne Dozer - www.myspace.com/tentonnedozer - Some time ago on a rock far, far away (Shetland, if we're being factual)...... From metal to blues, from rock to folk, not only is it deep wisdom, partial talent, and crucial knowledge of the dirty world of heavy rock that makes this band, it is also the lack of an egotisical arsehole. Who needs that? With the lead guitarist motionless as he pines for the fjords during his intense guitar solos, the tunes are fast and furious, slow and bewildering, steady and mesmerising, as the band rip through one of their gut wrenching ball breaking sets of bludgeoning tunes. These masters of rock are as cool as frozen livers and as mellow yellow as jaundice, What an awe inspiring mix of blood, sweat, broken strings, and sheep skulls.It paves the way for the beginning of an epic journey throughout the ages of dishevelled dirt mongering slovenly metal and down right filthy rock in Shetland.

Attica Rage - www.myspace.com/atticarage - Where AR differs from the new breed of UK metal bands is that their music does not belong in, or allow itself to be limited to, any one sub-genre or scene. Instead, they defiantly stand their own ground somewhere between the ‘old-school’ era they are most often compared to, and the modern metal of today. Old school in attitude and musicianship, but not dated by clichs and retro repetition – new and modern in sound, energy and ambition but without conforming to vocal styles, fashion or image. With the forth-coming release of their debut album, the future looks very busy and very promising for Attica Rage.

We will almost certainly having a riotous time, as we will be celebrating the end of recording for our new EP, out in August.

We'll be trying out our new stuff, as well as some of the old, but for a tiny (don't tell Capt Tom) rough mix preview go to


Come along and see exactly how we cope with all the finest alcohol in the world being available for cheap, and playing last...
