4:45 – ATTIC THEORY

 FROM THE ASHES OF ‘MATCHSTICKMEN’ AND ‘RAIN MAY FALL’… COMES ‘ATTIC THEORY’ New name, new beginning for the Liverpudlian based rock band Matchstickmen, who released their second album ‘From Our Own Ashes’ last November, decided it was time to change their name and give themselves a fresh start.

Remaining members of Matchstickmen, Lewis Wright, Peter Donnelly and ’25 Hours and 5 miuntes Party’ Dave Hornby are joined by guitarist Tim Cunningham (Rain May Fall) and jazz enthusiast Kenny McArthur on bass and will continue their journey as ATTIC THEORY. The new line-up will perform their self-proclaimed genre of Sex-Groove Rock. Heavy hitters in the local scene, Attic Theory are as grungy as one can be without losing the rock ‘n’ roll charm. The inspiration behind the name Attic Theory was taken from an episode of Elementary – a CBS television series based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes detective stories with contemporary twists. It stars Jonny Lee Miller as Holmes and Lucy Liu as Watson.
Vocalist Lewis Wright explains, “In an episode of the show, Sherlock states that the human brain is like an attic. A storage space for facts. But because that space is finite, it must be filled only with the things you need to be the best version of yourself. We thought this was fitting with everything that was going on and decided it was time to leave the past in the past – New name, new beginning”.
in 2017, Attic Theory have performed shows at O2 Academy venues, Rock N’ Roll Marathons and tattoo Conventions and earned themselves an array of prominent gigs over the years opening for acts such as Electric Six, The Quireboys, Graham Bonnet, INME, Taking Dawn, Uli Jon Roth, The Alarm, Skin, The Trews, Supersuckers, Crowbar, Diamondhead to name a few and have graced the same festival stages as Reverend and the Makers, The Real Thing, John Power, Dodgy, John Head and Toploader plus many more. The band has also supported a number of high profile tribute acts including The Thin Lizzy Experience, Kings Ov Leon, Pearl Jem, Novana, Guns 2 Roses, Stone Temple Pirates and Elvana.
Attic Theory will be releasing new material in 2018.

5:30 – GOOD PROBLEMS       

We are Good Problems, everybody has them. We are a 4 piece alternative rock band based in Liverpool, mongrel rock at it’s finest. With Liam Crosbie on drums, Nat Waters on guitar, George Rose on BAG (bass and guitar) and Jen Baranick on lead vocals. We are upbeat yet heavy and melodic. We’re moody but we make you move. What have you? Good Problems.

 

6:15 – KLAMMER 

Post-punk is definitely alive and well in Leeds, thanks to KLAMMER.
You could be forgiven for thinking that you had been teleported back to 1970s due to the echoes of Gang of Four and Wire that permeate the quartet’s sound but KLAMMER are no tribute band.
Although glimpses into their influences shine through their music, the four piece are already carving a name for themselves in their own right, thanks to an already booming back catalogue, helped along by their first album, “AUSLANE”.

Listen to the catchy funky punching drum rhythms of tracks such as The Heat collide with gravelly guitar rumbles, pedal fuzz and brooding spoken vocals of Evolve, amidst art-rock teases in Rising to see for yourself that this is a band that is not only unafraid of experimentation-but is able to do it well.

It’s not surprising then that they have already wrangled supporting slots for bands such as Art Brut, 999, The Membranes and Department S and have been played on BBC radio*

7:00 –  Scarlet

 Scarlet kicked off the new year by playing in front of 20,000 people at Tbisili Open Air festival (Georgia) along side Steve Vai and released their debut crowd funded album ‘Effigy’ in Japan and the UK.The band secured a licensing deal for the album in Japan with Vinyl Junkie Records (blossoms, swim deep, the wombats). 
Scarlet were recently featured by Alt Press in their ’20 rising u.k. bands about to take over the scene’ article, alongside The Amazons, Honeyblood and Milk Teeth. 
The band have secured support slots for 80s mega group ’T’pau’ at Norwich Water Front, London’s Islington Assembly Hall, Brighton’s Concorde 2 and Shrewsbury’s Butter Market. Scarlet was one of 16 bands that played for Dr Martens as part of their ‘Play Different’ run of shows. Scarlet have been supported by Vauxhall on their UK tours, by being given a brand new Vauxhall Vivaro van. Scarlet have supported Bob Geldof and the Boomtown Rats, Neon Waltz, Pulled Apart By Horses, Swervedriver, Black Honey, Wolf Alice, Coquin Migale, Kagoule, The Struts, secured slots playing DIY’s ‘breaking out’ night at Liverpool music week festival, and played the huge festivals, Secret Garden Party, Tramlines, Sound City, Hop Farm Festival, ‘We Luv Festival’ (Aintree racecourse alongside acts such as UB40, Scouting For Girls, Example and many more) amongst many others, and have been featured in magazines such as Qmagazine, Alternative Press and The Skinny

7:45 – Voodoo Blood

Formed from mutual love of fuzz riffs and grooves, Voodoo Blood are re imagine blues with a heavy twist.

With their monstrous pounding tones and a hurricane of enchanting and powerful vocals they will shake your bones and mesmerize you with their unique and relentless performances. This is “Anabolic blues at its finest.”

The band, fronted by the powerhouse that is The Voodoo Woman. Who has been described “the height of rock vocals” and compared to the likes of Lzzy Hale Robert plant and Janis Joplin are currently on the run up to the release of their debut single “groove medicine”. Recorded at edge studios in the footsteps of their highly praised debut EP anabolic blues, they hope so sell out rebellion bar again and pair the single with a show that won’t be forgotten.

Drawing comparisons to the likes of Led Zeppelin, Rival Sons, and Blues Pills the band have already secured themselves with some mentionable slots, from cramming over 300 people into rebellion bar in Manchester for their EP launch to following in the footsteps of their heroes and gracing the stage of the royal Albert hall in London. The band have also played some local and national festivals, from headlining Cambridge rock fest to festwich to bloodstock open air.
Voodoo Blood are ravenous and hungry to show the world what they have got, and this is only the beginning for these young and unique rockers.

8:30 –  Chasing Dragons

Careering into view like a raging typhoon, female-fronted Leeds based Chasing Dragons are a sprawling beast that incorporate frenetic post-hardcore bursts of penetrating guitars, thunderous vocals and a titan-esque rhythm section; all which entwine with moments of alt-metal, hard rock with a defining punk undercurrent.

Unafraid to step outside their realms of metal riffery, their new EP “Checkmate” launches you headlong into the full throttle rock and whips you on a journey fused with thick molten riffs dripping with an underlining harmony which then slips into moments of soft melancholia, frantic bass lines and unrelenting guitar pushing it to the limit. They tease you with a sense of mischief, surrounded by a cacophony of rage, defiance and riffs so meaty they could move mountains. Reaching deep inside, they grab your heart and soul and rouse you to stand up and be counted; do not be bound, do not be tied town – fight and fight to survive.

Chasing Dragons are unrelenting, rocket fuelled rock and roll that you can see Lemmy tipping his Stetson to in approval in the distance somewhere.

Drawing comparisons to Iron Maiden, Avenged Sevenfold, AFI and Aiden, Chasing Dragons are coming out of the traps making some noise and having already shared line ups with the likes of Skindred, The Blackout, Funeral For A Friend, Glamour Of The Kill, Pendulum, Silent Screams, Betraying The Martyrs, InMe, Death Angel, The Sweet and Fearless Vampire Killers amongst many others, ‘Checkmate’ is a real statement of intent. And they intend to grab you by the throat.”

10:00 – Ozzbest – Ozzy Osbourne & Black Sabbath Tribute 


A seemingly endless stream of weird and wonderful characters to rival Spinal Tap has resulted in the current line-up after many years. With Phil as the only original member, much like the real Ozzy’s band, Ozzbest has evolved and changed over the years. With a combination of Phil as a shrieking, ranting Ozzy, Paul’s Zakk Wylde style riffing and shredding, Bob’s near-perfect Geezer Butler bass attack and the powerful precision thumping backbone of Goldie’s drumming, the band suits perfectly any period of Ozzy era Sabbath right up to his modern day solo work.

With almost a hundred years of playing experience between them, Ozzbest deliver an exciting stage performance; their love of Ozzy and Sabbath songs really shines through

Rock Karaoke till Late

1:30 – Joe McCorriston

2011’s EP “One Day” and 2012’s LP “Try As You Might”, 2014’s “Sick & Sand” are releases that symbolize Joe’s formative years, all released as a teenager. The latest album “The Party We Came For”, was released on 16th December 2016, receiving many positive media reviews and the album launch show sold out weeks in advance. Joe continued to tour “The Party We Came For” through 145 shows in 11 different countries throughout 2017. His musical influences range from Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan & Bruce Springsteen, to NOFX, Green Day & McFly, and these influences have been honed through Joe’s creative machine to make a sound unique enough to stand out from the crowd, but catchy enough to leave you with the melodies in your head after just one listen. Joe is a workaholic, and is on tour more than he is at home, as he gigs endlessly around the UK & Europe building a following one-by-one. New EP “Existence. Familiarity” was released on 25th January 2018 to coincide with the start of another year of graft & touring. Joe toured the UK university circuit with Coffee House Sessions in January, before heading to Scandinavia for a tour throughout February, a 3 week tour of Germany in March, and will once again head out for a run of UK date in April, before hitting up the festival circuit over summer. Joe has played 650 shows as of December 2017, and is showing no signs of slowing down. Despite just being armed with an acoustic guitar, his live show is full of energy, passion and creativity to make you turn your head.”

Their genre is best described as doom dance and they are known acolytes of the dark lord…

6:00 – LET THERE B/DC
Recapturing the essence of an AC/DC performance was never going to be easy, but countless fans have told us time and time again that we’ve succeeded. Our current five man line-up have had AC/DC running through their veins since childhood and our passion for the music injects the venom into every show that we play. We deliver all the favourites such as Highway to Hell, Whole Lotta Rosie and Thunderstruck together with rare and seldom heard album tracks from Shake Your Foundations to Soul Stripper… you never know what you might hear! With our 3 original members consisting of Neil (Malcolm Young/Guitar), Paddy (Phil Rudd/Drums) and Steve (Cliff Williams/Bass) making up the ‘engine room’, it gives our (Angus Young/Guitar) Alex and (Brian Johnson/Bon Scott/Vocals) Andrew room to really fly and take our show to a whole new level. Whether you’ve been a fan from the very beginning or never seen us live before, we hope to see you all down the front.
