★ AVALANCHE PARTY
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Avalanche Party were formed high in the wind swept, bracken laden heights of the North Yorkshire Moors by two brothers who spent their summers hunting with bows and arrows and camping by firelight, and their winters snowed into their isolated hill top home with nothing but the sounds of Bo Diddley, Link Wray, Wilko Johnson and Jimi Hendrix to keep them company. Guitars replaced the bows and arrows and the boys played their first gig at the age of 12. Music was in their blood.
Avalanche Party is garage-punk hopped up on adrenalin and amphetamines. Their sound is intense and immediate, So new yet so familiar and brimming with an urgency that explodes off the stage like the front lines of a war you didn’t even realise was being fought. Every note played through white knuckles, every word spat through gritted teeth. The beats blast like cannons while the guitars stampede like spooked stallions surging ever onward, snorting, snarling and tearing apart everything in their path. The Pistols, The Clash, The Stooges, The Damned; They’re all there but twisted into a much leaner, much fiercer beast. This is punk at its most feral, garage at its most primal, this is rock’n’roll in its most fearsome form, with its teeth bared spitting like a cornered pit-bull.
In their own words – This is Avalanche Party and nobody comes from where we come from!
“Easily the most interesting and exciting performance witnessed on the BBC Intro stage”
“A potent, unfiltered brew of garage punk, psych and amphetamine rock n roll”
– NARC. Magazine
“Definitely one of the best live bands I’ve seen in a long, long time”
– Vic Galloway
★ UNQUALIFIED NURSE BAND
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
“One of the most promising bands in the UK right now unleash their debut album, hot on the heels of their sold out EP Debasement Tapes is unleashed on the unsuspecting public.”
“Debasement Tapes proves why Unqualified Nurse Band are one of the most exciting bands in the country, these twelve tracks coming in at less then half hour show the many facets of the band. From their swaggering rock n’ roll their riff laden heavy rock to their incredible garage rock it has it all, a truly wonderful record.”
– Louder Than War Magazine
“In a rock world so fuelled by nostalgia, finding a band that can mine the depths of rock n roll’s varied history and come out with their own, unique nuggets of gold should be applauded.
Debasement Tapes Derby’s Unqualified Nurse Band is one of those groups, and following the promise of their debut EP Dilemma Blues, have delivered an album that has dragged the history of rock behind the bike sheds and kicked the living crap out of it!”
– The National Student

Mannequin are a Nottingham based 3 piece band who’s sound and influence comes from every direction – creating a misshapen, unique blend of punk, grunge, art rock and psychedelia, distinct in its own demeanour.
“Having initially started out playing a hybrid of thrash and grunge as most punk bands do in their embryonic stage, Mannequin have progressed and developed into an incisive fusion of melodic lo-fi rock and what can only be described as thinking man’s punk as previously administered by the likes of Dinosaur Jr, Buffalo Tom and Fugazi.”
– Dom Gourlay – Drowned in Sound
