Andro Coulton was Bass Guitarist in the iconic Witchfynde line up from 1975 to 1980 producing the NWOBHM classic album Give ‘Em Hell.
Andro Coulton’s Give ‘Em Hell was formed after Rampant’s Jamie Carter asked Andro to sign his Witchfynde Give ‘Em Hell album cover at Mearfest Slough, June 2019 and during the resulting conversation Andro mentioned about starting a band to play the Witchfynde songs from 1975 to 1980. Jamie asked if he could be the lead guitarist. From that chat Andro Coulton’s Give ‘Em Hell was formed from 3 members of Rampant and two members of Malleus.

Take yourself back thru the mists of time to circa 1983..... Phil and Julian (aka Sack) were playing in two different bands. Both bands broke up around the same time, so they decided to form a new band. Originally called 'Isis', but this was changed when Ebony Records showed an interest in signing us. Ebony thought the name was shite....and in hindsight I think they were right!
Phil and Sack brought several mates into the picture.....and then based the name on a description of Conan the Barbarian.... one of his many enemies referred to him as the "dangerous Black mane" owing to his hair.
Blending punk/ska/rock and even a little lounge music and coming up with something a little bit different Biography like a phoenix rising from the ashes of the monkeys bigger louder and much better looking the bud smugglers are here

We are THE PAPASHANGOS...
We do songs about love, sex and death. And taxes.
We're no good at all the stuff that most bands generally do like, I dunno, staying in one place or in tune or whatever. In fact, if there's any way we can play on the floor with the crowd, rather than being up on a stage, that suits us just fine.
Porcelain Hill is a high energy POWER trio. Perfectly blending blues, soul, Rock! It’s music that plays to a crowd LIVE, and tantalizes a recorded track. Heavy guitar riffs and thunderous drums collide with melodic bass lines creating music you don’t listen to, but music you feel. Formed in 2012 out of Ontario, CA when guitarist Darnell “Big D” Cole met Nat “Wildfire Campos. The duo performed as a two piece for a couple years but felt like something was missing. After cycling through a few bass players, the band found Lucas “LZA” Martinez, and really came together. The group continues to tour, melting faces internationally, and carving their path to the top with their unique brand of Rock and Roll.
NWOBHM band Rampant from 1980/81 has reformed with some new members and the original guitarist and vocalist. Here's to the future...Run for the hills
Sci-Fi/ Garage Punk Rockers. Add Synth,samples,visuals and an industrial edge, a 5 piece assault on your senses, we are Strip Search Tramp!
Formed in late 1982 as a remedy for the similarly disenfranchised psych/festival scenesters.. Featuring from the 'get-go' a full psychedelic light show and acid rock, true 'Head Music for the Feet', the Magic Mushroom Band, against all odds, filled out the venue at their first ever show at a former Fire Station directly opposite Windsor Castle and never looked back..
Appearing at all manner of festivals and venues across the UK, including the last two Stonehenge festivals, often appearing with fellow Psych/Space Cadets Ozric Tentacles, The Treatment, Webcore and a host of others, before long a whole 'underground' scene had formed..
When the festival scene took a turn for the worse, the band took to more regular venues, managing to recreate a similar vibe with the lightshows and the attending punters..but also became important players at alternative clubs that were popping up. most notably London's 'Alice in Wonderland' and the infamous 'Crypt'...
The Magic Mushroom Band were the first on the scene to appear on a compilation album (The Waking Dream) in 1985 which caught the attention of John Peel who would play both tracks on his show (Mr Peel offered the band a chance to do a session on his show but his producer got cold feet) and they were the first to release a (now very rare!) album in their own right (The Politics of Ecstasy).
The band went on to release many more albums and e.p's over the years before finally hanging up their Mushroom Hats in 1994...
Fronted by Singer/songwriter and guitarist Garry Moonboot together with Vocals/Synthesisers Kim Oz and Bassist Wayne Buaku the trio remained constant throughout the band's career together with a host of marvellous players who passed through the ranks..
The Undaclass, based in South Shields, North East England is the brain child of guitarist, lead vocalist & songwriter Denni (Chris) Dennison, first founded in 2010 with a few like minded musicians but other than recording a couple of demo's, the band did not really go anywhere & folded... This did however lay the foundation of the band & plant the desire in Denni to one day make this happen & for his songs to be heard...
After playing in various local bands, Denni reformed The Undaclass in 2016 with Melanie Lisle on Bass & Sean Wilkinson (Mandora) on Drums... This line up worked very well, with successful appearances on the local music scene, building on a decent following which has lead to being asked to be part of a compilation record for the Anger Burning magazine... Due to personal circumstances Melanie could no longer fully commit her time to the band so in January 2020 Denni & Sean approached Sean's Mandora band mate Paul Binyon to take up Bass duties, he immediately took the opportunity to join in, this was a no brainer all round as Paul had previously played bass with Sean & Denni in previous bands & was already loving what The Undaclass were all about...
Now with the line up secure, the band are eager to record their first album & of course play live as much as possible, if the power & energy that has been created in the rehearsal room is anything to go by then the live shows will be nothing short of electric!!! With a blend of catchy hook lines, melodies & great lyrics, The Undaclass are quickly becoming one of the best Punk Rock bands to come out of Tyneside for decades... Watch this space..."
The Undaclass can be found on Facebook & we're hoping to have an official website soon...
The Warlords hail from Folkestone in Kent and this year marks their 10th anniversary. Not a tribute band as such but more a celebration of the music of H@wkwind. The band like to perform classic tracks with passion and power as close as possible to those original studio albums, focusing mainly on the 70s output. Their live shows wouldn't be complete without a light show, a few lazers and some projections to get the people dancing. The warlords were honoured last summer when they were joined on stage by none other than original founding member Nick Turner.
