Sundays are great to finish off the weekend at The Fiddler’s. Top bands!
While the collegiate powerhouse that is the University of Oxford may seem like an unlikely birthing place for an alt-rock band, here we are.
Originally, drummer Creamer and vocalist Rachel had bonded over their shared music tastes at university, so when Creamer was looking to form a band after a move to London, Rach was the first person he called.
London’s thriving live music scene provided the perfect backdrop and after finding guitarists Matt and Dan and bassist Guy, the line-up was cemented.
Following a recording session with producer John Mitchell (Enter Shikari, Funeral for a Friend, Architechs, You MeatSix), WOLF CELLAR are planning a summer of noise with the release of new single ‘Body and Heart’ and further recording to flesh out WOLF CELLAR’s first full length record.
The music of the Apricot Hounds is unique and gutsy cocktail of soulful, trip hop, with authentic rock tones, infused and embroidered with the inspired technicoloured sound of experimental passionate violin and guitar blended with melodic, haunting, and harmonic vocals inspirationally supported by both acoustic and electronic drums.
The Apricot Hounds consists of:
Adam – vocals, electric guitar
Agne – vocals & keyboard
Vaughan – electric violin & guitar
Sheldon - drums & roland
4-piece garage punk band born in South London.
After a chance encounter at a Hole gig in Birmingham back in 2010 – plus several drinks and a trashed hotel room – singer Laura Le Rox and drummer Emma Waller met up in Camden’s finest public toilet-turned-rehearsal room five years later to form Pretty Pistol with guitarist Billy Larsen and bassist Rich Cooper.
Combining melds of furious shouts, frenzied riffs and pummelling drums, resulting in a marshalled chaos somewhere between Gallows, Be Your Own Pet and The Kills. The band is an unignorable presence on the London circuit supporting the likes of Penetration, KidBrother, Drones and Crazytown, to headlining and selling out London venues Birthdays and The Black Heart, which lead to them being picked as Team Rock’s Band Of The Week in Feb 2018
The band’s new EP ‘Welcome To The Dead Club’ will be released on 13th April 2018, recorded with renowned rock producer John Mitchell (Architects, Enter Shikari, You Me At Six) and features the singles ‘Cry Wolf’ and ‘Drive Me To The Dogs’.

Bob Skeleton are a 4 piece Midnight-Pop band from Galway with influences including Miles Kane, Tame Impala and Lana Del Rey. Intertwining late night grooves with shimmering melodies to create a dynamic blend of West Coast cool and Mancunian mood.
2017 was a busy year for the band, releasing their second and third EP’s respectively in ‘If This Isn’t Love’ and ‘Boiling Point’, as well as the stand alone single ‘See the Moon’. To compliment a busy year of recording they also took their tightly honed live show across the country, including headline slots in Whelan’s and The Roisin Dubh respectively to full capacity rooms, as well as support slots with HamsandwicH and Otherkin.
They also made their Electric Picnic debut on the Body&Soul mainstage, showing their ability to captivate even larger audiences. After taking a brief break early in the year due to their drummer's academic commitments, 2018 promises to be even bigger and better with tours and festival shows already in the pipeline.'
Bob Skeleton released ‘If You Want’ on May 25th 2018.
‘If You Want' was recorded in H. Keep Studios and Willow Sea Studios by Rory Ryan and Will O'Connor, and produced by Will O'Connor and Bob Skeleton. Mastering by Matt Colton (Jungle, Arctic Monkeys, Christine and the Queens). Artwork by Mot Collins.
OONAR is an electro-rock, synth-pop band from Italy.
The name “OONAR” comes from the ancient Greek word for "Dream.”
Their music is a distinct mix of 60’s-70’s American psychedelic-progressive rock, 80’s British “New Wave" and contemporary European electronic music. Their use of digital interfaces and visual effects immerse the audience into their dream-like sound.
In 2012, OONAR released their self-titled debut album, “OONAR” (Music Force Label) available on i-Tunes, Spotify, Deezer, and all other major music platforms.
In 2017 OONAR recorded their second album “Raining Clouds”, which marked a shift from dark-wave/electronic to more synth-pop-oriented sounds. The band is already giving pre-release concerts in the most important Italian and European venues.
