The Kidney Flowers
Glasgow-based garage-punks The Kidney Flowers’ furious live shows have earned them the reputation as one of Scotland’s must-see live acts.
Initially formed as a duo, comprising couple Grant Canyon on Guitar + Vocals and Abigail A. on Drums, the band were eventually joined by Tog Miller on Bass in 2022.
The band’s distinctive, raw sound owes much to the primitive, stripped-back approach of drummer Abigail. A rookie to the kit before starting the band, Abigail taught herself to play drums after listening to 60’s garage bands on repeat. The raw and powerful beats are the driving force behind Grant’s frenetic, dissonant guitar style, his politically charged, frantic vocal delivery and Tog Miller’s virtuosic, fuzzed-out bass playing.
Championed by the likes of Louder Than War, The List, and The Herald on Sunday, the band have been touring the UK relentlessly, and are preparing for their first European tour in summer 2023.
The band have recently completed their second album, ‘Burn Your Furniture’, which was recorded live in a single day and will be released on Never Found Records in September 2023.
Lynskey is a dance-punk and/or nüwu-metal duo from the North West. Their genre-bending, loud, emotional sound kisses peaks and smooches valleys with angular riffs and danceable drums.
Composed of B (they/them) on a modified guitar, synth, and vocals, with Saul (he/him) on drums, and vocals, Lynskey’s songs are a hurricane of influences. From Rueben to Frank Ocean, Cardiacs to Mclusky, and Enter Shikari to Bloc Party – the pair deftly weave in and out of genres while maintaining an infectious energy. They play songs about gender, ADHD and Keanu Reeves.
A celebration of alternative rock with wacky time signatures and a range of emotional flavours. This mysterious band is from the Lancaster area, and will soon be your favourite, much like their namesake chickpea dip!
