Fuzzystar and the Christmas choir - December 12th, 2010

Band practice was getting a bit hectic...

Moustache Of Insanity

Moustache of Insanity are Nik and Bill, two ninjas hellbent on kickstarting a transglobal funtastic casio pop revolution. They play noisy bleep boom pop magic that, if you’re lucky, might just melt your face. If dinosaurs were still around, they would most definitely like this kind of music. Especially the cool ones with long necks.

“These guys are brilliant. Twee-casio-pop ahoy, they are a bit like Moldy Peaches with tiny keyboards and facial hair. One of the most fun bands we’ve heard in a while.”
Pull Yourself Together, Manchester

Hexicon started as a lo-fi voice/guitar/french horn combo in 2004 and got told they sounded like a junk shop Beach Boys. Now on Haircut Records this melodic sextet have played on bills alongside some of their favourite people including James Yuill, Darren Hayman, Fanfarlo, SFA and Tender Trap. When not on Hexicon duties, Mike and Paul also play in Allo Darlin’, and Tom can also be heard playing Horn on Darren Hayman’s most recent records.

“Hexicon make the sound of mellow hillbillies tripping in the countryside” – Artrocker

The Croshaw Family
Since 2006 The Croshaws have built up a regular following hosting bi-monthly nights at the Betsey Trotwood. Whatever they choose, we can expect it to express their penchant for classic bluegrass, alternative country, old-time rock’n’roll not to mention a few festive specials. Previous tour support slots for The Duke & The King and Alasdair Roberts indicate it’s bound to be worth a listen…

“…a set moving from cloud-floatingly delicate numbers and the most innocent vocal lines, to nod along mid-west driving music.” – Yorkshire Evening Post
