They specialise in limited edition CD runs, online promotion and showcase events for artists and bands who are willing to pitch in, roll their sleeves up and be proactive. Righteous people in other words. Enjoy their sounds here:

Day tickets on sale + more announcements!

...

Some exciting additions to the line up are announced today, along with a screenprinting workshop for those of you who don’t mind getting your hands dirty. Day tickets are also on sale from today and can be found HERE.

First of all, some sad news. Due to illness within the band ZU93 are forced to cancel their appearance at this year’s Supersonic. This is indeed, really sad news and we wish a speedy recovery.

In happier news, we are utterly thrilled to announce two very special performances at the fest this year. Mike Watt will be joining the festival line up with his Missingmen. A hero to many, Mike Watt has most known for his work in the Minutemen, fIREHOSE and his current work with Iggy and the Stooges. MC Will Brooks of Dalek will be bringing his new solo project iconAclass to the festival this year, his new material sees him maintaining the gritty view of boom-bap he is know for, while returning to his roots.

For anyone interested in screenprinting and DIY production we are bringing you a screenprinting workshop in collaboration with GET A GRIP. You can design and print your very own Supersonic T-shirt to keep, a perfect festival memento.  Spaces are very limited for this workshop, so sign up quickly by emailing [email protected] with the subject SCREENPRINT.

Mike Watt + The Missingmen

...

 

Mike Watt is a u.s. bassist/composer/performer who’s home is in san pedro, california. he first got attention as a founding member (along w/d. boon) of the minutemen in the early 1980s. since then he was in fIREHOSE, dos and many other solo bands as well as a sideman bassist for porno for pyros, j mascis & the fog and currently (since 2003) iggy and the stooges. “hyphenated-man” is the third of what he calls punk rock opera due to them being album-long pieces put together in parts. the first one, “contemplating the engine room” dealt w/the story of the minutemen using his father’s life in the navy and the second one “the secondman’s middle stand” used parallels to dante’s “commedia” to deal w/an illness almost that almost killed him. opera number three takes on watt in moment, where he is in his life now and how he feels about it using various creatures in hieronymus bosch’s paintings as inspiration and metaphor.

With  on tour this fall in europe are his missingmen tom watson (guitar) and raul morales (drums) who also were involved in the recording, the first release on his new label clenchedwrench.
