Line Up

The adventure of The Sidewalk Bandits began in Tours, France, in the very early 90’s. It was there that a group of friends, Vinnie, Tom, Martin & François, from the same neighborhood, decided to set up a rock band.

Let’s go, in 1992, the band’s self-titled debut album The Sidewalk Bandits was released. There followed more than 300 concerts all over France from Lille to Toulon and from Bordeaux to Grenoble via Paris (The Locomotive and The Gibus…2 famous venues). The Bandits also moved to England for four mini tours for around forty gigs with several dates in London venues, The Rock Garden, The Dome, The Moonlight, etc… In 1995, « Schizoid" came out, the second opus of The Sidewalk Bandits!

After ten years of silence, the machine shakes again…in 2012, The Bandits recorded their third album, «Does It Really Matter?» followed a year later by the release of the EP « Electric3 » In 2019, our latest album « What’s On The News Today? » is released.

Let’s do it and here we go!!!

The Slow Cooked Bears play visceral alternative noise rock.

he Slow Cooked Bears are a visceral, alternative rock band from London with a left-field, avant-garde sound.

The power trio have forged together a mixture of alternative, synth pop and reverb heavy post-rock in a sound that is uniquely their own.

Debut singles “Space Odyssey” – a symphonic electronic rock anthem and follow up “The Grand Scheme” – a hooky as hell, swaggering grungy anthem are available now to stream and on an extremely limited vinyl release.

With an energetic live show the band are making all the right noises on the London underground scene.

For fans of The Smashing Pumpkins, Queens of the Stone Age, Placebo and Pixies.

Featured on prime time BBC 2 television, Rachel Croft is a London based alternative artist, whose voice was described as “truly exceptional” by BBC Introducing. Blending the cinematic and soulful, Rachel’s multi-octave range flows effortlessly from fierce power to deep and deadly soft. Her honest and varied self penned works have gained Rachel an impressive international fanbase, packing out venues across Europe on tours annually, and gracing the main stages of festivals including Wickham, Lindisfarne and Costa Del Folk Portugal since 2017. Since relocating to London in early 2022, Rachel has performed at the legendary Troubadour, the Green Note, Pizza Express Live Holborn, and St. Pancras Old Church, with many more dates around the UK to follow. Rachel’s music has been synced on the BBC (Rebel Cheer Squad, 2022) and featured on Spotify editorial playlists such as Melancolia Indie and Indielandia. Counting hundreds of thousands of plays on YouTube and Spotify, her work has been featured in major blogs such as Louder Than War and Tom Robinson’s Fresh On The Net and on radio stations across the UK, US, Europe and Australia including BBC Radio 6. After releasing her liberating EP “Reap What You Sow” in 2021, which was described as “powerhouse” by New Noise Magazine, Rachel is now shaping two deeply contrasting and much anticipated singles, the first of which is set for release in July 2022. This potent and dark female forward repertoire, combined with Rachel’s formidable stage presence is one performance not to be missed.

Will is a 25 year-old songwriter based in London, who started his musical career in Indie-Pop band, milkd. He worked on two EPs with milkd and frequented the live scene in and around the city, bagging slots on Sofar Sounds and with Manchester group, Larkins.

As a solo artist, Will's teamed up with Chicago-based producer and multi-instrumentalist, Cadien Lake James (of Twin Peaks), receiving acclaim from DIY Label, Manor Records, out in Kansas City, and Right Chord Music in more local London. He also took the opportunity to put out his first self-released single with his latest offering ‘If I Should Fall’.

"Will has an undeniable talent for creating delicately crafted pieces of musical artistry and this song really goes to show his songwriting abilities" - Sophie Bourgeois for Right Chord Music "You will sleep well knowing a song like this exists" - Skyler Rochelle for Manor Records
