Thousand Thoughts – www.facebook.com/tthoughtsmusic
The story of Thousand Thoughts may read like the script of a Hollywood movie, but the four-piece from Enfield, London really have exploded from nowhere. There aren’t many bands who progress from formation to a record deal and a single release in just a matter of months.
Dead At Eleven – www.facebook.com/deadateleven

Driving guitar riffs, high energy bass lines and great vocal melodies form the spine of their sound and their captivating stage presence mean that their live shows have gained critical acclaim. The band has a single mission: to make people dance, feel and forget about real life.
The Filthy Spectacula – www.facebook.com/thefilthyspectacula
The Filthy Spectacula – a band & an experience – playing idiosyncratic high-energy original songs in a unique genre that could be simplified as dark gypsy pirate punk (a mash-up of gypsy punk, ska, goth, pirate, dark cabaret and steampunk), with eccentric image and massive stage presence that wavers between swagger & stagger..
To date have release 1 full length album (Thrupn’y Upright) and 1 EP, & have just recorded the 2nd album & an EP for release a bit later in the year.

Consisting of Debbie Dee (drums), Ines South (vocals), Jacki Ager (guitar) and Marina Magi (bass), the band has a passion for all sorts of music, and takes it’s influences from anything from 90s girl bands like Sleater Kinney and Bikini Kill, to 80s pop-rock such as Duran Duran and Prince.
Dive Exit – www.facebook.com/diveexit
Dive Exit recombine colourful hooks with blistering drumming to deliver unadulterated anthemic rock. Formed in London, England, their keen sense of melody and compelling vocals bring a new dynamic to the scene. Ample proof is found on the band’s debut single Colours Collide. Tracked with ever-rising producer Tristan Ivemy (?Frank Turner?) at the helm, the set makes a statement that’s equal parts guts and glory. Their debut album of the same name (Summer 2018) promises a modern punk and hard rock hybrid, with expansive choruses and a genuine energy.
