The Meffs + Fashoda Crisis + Ecto Peach + Dead Caress

Since exploding onto the East Anglian scene in 2019, THE MEFFS - aka Lily on vocals/guitar and Lewis on drums/backing vocals - have built up a reputation as purveyors of frantic punk bangers and an absolute must-see live sensation. After a multitude of talked-about performances, 2021 saw THE MEFFS invited to play the Nick Alexander Memorial Trust stage at London's legendary Roundhouse for Frank Turner's four-date Lost Evenings festival, alongside headlining HRH Punk, and being nominated for the Young Blood award. Following their self-titled debut demo (recorded in a day, and receiving exposure on BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, and Radio X) THE MEFFS released four singles, recorded by Billy Lunn of The Subways and at Black Cactus Studio. These continue to receive international airplay and spots on Spotify playlists. In the midst of a pandemic, THE MEFFS filmed a video for their appropriately-named single 'Scum', which was rated #15 in Vive Le Rock's Top Videos of 2021, alongside the likes of Bob Vylan, Amyl and the Sniffers and The Stranglers. Their new album, currently being recorded with Frank Turner, is due for release in 2022, the year that THE MEFFS will be making multiple debut festival appearances including Futurama, Rebellion and... Others that are yet to be announced.

“Packing a severe punch for a two-piece, and clearly taking a lead from the early 80s anarcho scene” – Vive Le Rock.

Fashoda Crisis were born kicking and screaming in 2005 and have been screaming into the void ever since. They spew forth vitriol and acerbic wit in equal measures, melding political rhetoric and social commentary with opaquely personal lyrics. Intelligent, violent, passionate, honest, spleen-rupturingly humourous (and modest, let’s not forget modest) genre mangling mentalists. Along the way they've received airplay from Lamacq, Tom Robinson, Tom Ravenscroft and many others, graced stages all over the UK and most of Europe, shared bills with luminaries such as Future of the Left and The Lovely Eggs and collected the odd album of the year accolade from the likes of Echoes and Dust and Sweeping the Nation.

They say that good things come to those who wait, well Ecto Peach waited for half their lives to find the perfect band... And it was indeed worth the wait. No longer fuelled by the hope of fame, fortune and the dream of stardom, Ecto Peach are here to play the music because they have to. The fate of humanity may very well depend upon it, or at the very least it might make a person slightly happier than they were before. But either way, it is music that they believe in and have been patiently waiting to play. This isn't a band trying to find themselves. They know who they are and they know who you are. They've got stuff to say and with their own version of middle aged angst they're gonna tell you about it directly. They're not gonna simply fade into the background quietly with their M&S slippers on (however much they like the quality and reasonable prices of M&S.. and the fact that their perfume is not tested on animals). No, they've got a story for the ages and one which all ages can relate to. Even if it's just a warning to the younger audience about their future lives.. Pulling on influences from before they were born right through current and future music. This is the music Ecto Peach have been dreaming and it is as good as they hoped it would be.

Heavy riffs, Improvised jams and occasional gentle melodies… Influences include Elton Motello amongst others.
