” Sharkmuffin are either the most glam garage band around, or the grungiest glam band around.” – NPR

“Sharkmuffin are one of the more popular garage punk bands in the Brooklyn music scene, and essential listening for fans of Screaming Females. There’s a certain ’90s feel to the music they make, driven by demanding but never desperate hollers.”” -Billboard Magazine

“Their sound is energetic and wild, fitting for a band with a name like theirs. It’s rough and raw and soaked in whisky, just the way the best bands are.“ – The Village Voice


Sharkmuffin is led by Tarra Thiessen and Natalie Kirch, a duo of Brooklynite sirens bred from the waves of the Jersey shore, with Jordyn Blakely on drums. Influenced by everyone from Nirvana to The Ronettes, Sharkmuffin adds a unique jagged edge onto ‘60s beach pop meets ‘90s alt sound, a genre lovingly dubbed “opti-mystic glam-grunge.” With several cross-country tours (including many return trips to SXSW) and no shortage of EPs, Sharkmuffin has been creating a veritable whirlpool of musical chaos. Their 2015 debut LP Chartreuse is their most vicious lure, featuring 10 tracks that bleed heavily with feminine rage and cheeky sass alike.

Sharkmuffin just sold out of their sophomore LP Tsuki this past March. After their 6th SXSW stint this spring, they are planning a re-release of Tsuki on cassette with the addition of two fresh tracks before their return to the U.K. this summer. They plan to serve up their signature pizza, cocktails, and ice cream by inventing the first punk rock brunch truck. Stay tuned for further deliciousness.

BABE PUNCH are a young, newly emerging alternative four piece from Nottingham/Derby. Described as “frenzied pop punk” (Louder Than War), Babe Punch shaped their distinctive sound around grunge and punk influences, defined by their individual inspirations.

The band have been seen to play on lineups for Dot To Dot, Y Not and Splendour festivals along with supporting the likes of The Cribs, Hinds, Vant and Ezra Furman.

Their recent single ‘CONTROL’ has been described as “a lively, contagious statement of intent” (Clash magazine) and “one of the most impressive debut singles of the year” (Eudaemonia). CONTROL “explodes in less than two minutes of furious drums, distorted guitars and infectious choruses” (Indie+Tonic).

Babe Punch, “A youthful, eccentric, electric and fiery mix of pop punk, grunge and pure fire, welcome to your new favourite band” (Let It Happen).

The Rutherfords are a 3-piece Powerpop band from Nottingham. Unabashedly similar sounding to the Ramones. Like that’s a bad thing.
Two self-released EPs are now out of print (S/T and Age Gracefully) but there’s an album on the way. Other releases have included appearances on compilations such as ‘Barfights and Brokenhearts’ courtesy of PunkRockReview, Cabana 1’s ‘Where The Fun Never Sets Vol. 2’ (featuring the Queers, Darlington, Teenage Bubblegums) and ‘Rude Tunes Vol. 1’ released through Knowhere Records.
Glyn sings, plays the guitar and worries about inconsequential details, Greg sings, plays the drums and hiccups every single day, Stanley Mackerel plays bass, is very wise, and takes his clothes off in public.

With Austin Coop Cooper on the one’s and two’s spinning early 90’s garage punk records that influenced him as a child and which later as a fully formed adult man lead to he and his long term lifepartner Gary X-ray spawning the seminal punk outfit that is known as The ‘Fucking’ X-Rays!
