| Aqua Dentata |

As Aqua Dentata, Eddie Nuttall has been garnering some well deserved praise of late. Some great releases on Beartown Records, SLI & Feral Tapes, complimented by gigs where the audience "just shuts the fuck up and listens" (Rob Hayler), has meant that an invite back to Leeds was always on the cards. Expect to be consumed by sounds conjured from synths, tapes and bowed miscellany; shimmering, beautiful, throbbing and fizzing...

| BBBlood |

Paul Watson, aka BBBlood, is a maestro of noise. Predominantly operating at the harsher end of the spectrum, the depth and consideration in Paul's approach will have warming to the embrace of even his harshest roar. Following on from a stand-out performance at Pete Cann's excellent Crater Lake Festival, I'm delighted it won't be too long until he's back up in Leeds...

| Hagman |

Daniel & David Thomas (no relation) are two men with lots of wire. The wire connects pedals, short-wave radios, oscillators, drum machines, synths and home-made Tupperware-tronics. Debut album - Number Mask - coming in the Summer. "Hagman drift sublimely along a path of beautifully nuanced drone" (Idwal Fisher).

| Midwich | (tbc)

Midwich is Rob Hayler: head honcho of Fencing Flatworm Recordings and Radio Free Midwich's longest serving blog-jockey. Having (only very) recently entered fatherhood (congratulations!), so (tbc) is the best I can do for now. Rob is claiming to have re-entered semi-retirement but, after the cracking live sets of the last twelve months and new releases on Kirkstall Dark Matter and We're Gonna Get Fucking Drunk Tonight Boys (the latter coming soon!), I can only imagine that he'll be itching to return. Augmented field recordings, deep electronic drone, head-banging.

| Petals |

Petals. Kevin Sanders. Hairdryer Excommunication. Former Sheepscar neighbour. Nice, shiny shoes. Library operative. Prolific, ebullient, drone-charmer. Deep, warm, crispy, electro-fuzz. Super!

| These Feathers Have Plumes |

I've been attempting to get Andie Brown, who performs as These Feathers Have Plumes, to record something for SLI or play in Leeds since the label began to function. Hence, it goes without saying how pleased I am that she's joined the line up for this gig. Look forward to deep, textured drones, with contact mic accompaniment and occasional field recording forays. Oh, and wine glasses.
