Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
One of the best live bands we hosted in 2016 are back with a new record.

Heaters, from Grand Rapids, Michigan, have a spacey, driving take on West Coast psych rock. Tapping into both the twang of their ’60s garage compatriots and building their own brand of expansive, cosmic swells, Pitchfork calls the band “catchy and kinetic,” noting their “energy and hook writing are clearly on point.” Combining a seemingly constant output of “reverb-coated, fuzz-studded, hard-driven garage psych” with a kaleidoscopic, hip-shaking live set, Heaters are quickly forging something new and exciting.

3Firecracker Recordings 'Heal Yourself & Move' #9 with Whodamanny, House Of TrapsSneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
In an era when dance music gets weird as hell, Whodamanny, AKA Raffaele Arcella, still cuts an odd figure. The Neapolitan is a key player in the Early Sounds Recordings collective and one of the founders of the Periodica Records. He’s also half of The Normalmen and one third of The Mystic Jungle Tribe. He’s spent a great deal of time experimenting with phase distortion synthesizers made by Casio and on several kinds of toy keyboards creating a really weird fusion between cosmic sounds, proto-house, jazz-funk and electronica. The results can be heard best on 2016’s Cosmic Morphology album on Periodica and on his Primaria Industria opus our own Unthank label.

6Guadalupe Plata, Lonesome ShackSneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
“Our name comes from our hometown’s patron, the Virgin of Guadalupe —she protects us as we play the devil’s music,” say the members of Guadalupe Plata, with not a little bit of hopefulness.

Rising up from the town of Úbeda, deep in Andalusia near Jaén, Guadalupe Plata have become legends for their provocative, deeply affecting blues and boogie music, creating a psychedelic landscape that is as darkly surrealistic as it is infectious.

Guadalupe Plata — Pedro de Dios (guitar and voice), Carlos Jimena (drums), and Paco Luis Martos (bass, contrabalde, and guitar) — have met wide success with a string of recordings and constant touring in Spain and Portugal where they have become well known stars, even as they continue to play every sort of venue imaginable, from backyards to bordellos, giant music festivals, dirty bars, and extravagant night clubs. This is a no nonsense band, famous for their stripped-down sound and primitive equipment, most notably a washtub bass built with parts taken from the local graveyard and a chainsaw.

Mojo magazine has called them “culturally rich and instantly identifiable as excellent.”

Him from Hot Chip and The 2 Bears, DJing all night long.

A brilliant, brilliant DJ, a king of good time positive vibes across genres, we’ve waited years to host Joe. Who else could have released records on DFA, Moshi Moshi and Domino? He’s the definition of indie-dance done right, and an inspiration for a generation of party-starters.

A leading member of indie/soul/dance group Hot Chip, half of fun-loving house duo 2 Bears, head of his own forward-thinking label Greco Roman (first home to Disclosure amongst others), and a successful solo producer and remix artist in his own right, with a cracking new album ‘Electric Lines’ just out, a great follow up to past singles ‘Gabriel’ and ‘Taking Over’.

9Feast's 5th Birthday - Noah Noah, Posable Action FiguresSneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
Feastival is Feast's annual 'blog party' celebrating their fifth birthday. They like lots of new music, especially from Edinburgh and write about some of the most exciting music being created across the city. For this year's birthday party they are showcasing two bands who have great sound.

NOAHNOAH presents a unique look at indie/electro/pop/rock and keep you engaged with close harmony and tight, driving synth. The band have been working tirelessly to bring this exciting new sound to the masses. Taking influence from major and local bands – such as Chrvches, Fatherson, Prides, Biffy Clyro and The Killers – They will be launching their new single.

Posable Action Figures have already picked up airplay on Radio 1 for their recent single 'Cut', been tipped as one of, Vic Galloway of BBC Radio Scotland's bands to watch in 2017 as well as being invited to start the year with a performance on STV. With a self-titled debut E.P. under their belt that was described as "marvellous" by The Scotsman and "Something a little bit special… an EP of the highest quality" by Netsounds, Posable Action Figures have developed a reputation for catchy punchy tunes paired with an explosive live show. Regular air play through 2016 and a jam packed gig schedule helped the band build an enthusiastic fan base.

10Mannequin PussySneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
Brevity is among Mannequin Pussy’s strengths, but a controlled volatility is the Philadelphia quartet’s calling card. The mood of any given song can zap with a disconcerting swiftness from the playful to the chaotic. This dynamic persists on record and on stage.

Mannequin Pussy’s dense towers of noise are underlined by Marisa Dabice’s evocative and passionate lyrical poetry. On their latest LP ‘Romantic’, she’s attempting to figure out what romance means in the 21st century. Less about the gooey stuff and more about everything that surrounds love — the triumphs, the failures and how we transform from the mess of it all. Mostly, it’s just a reminder to love someone. We love them.

Suicideyear, who’s released on Brodinski’s 'Bromance' label and OneohTrix Point Never’s 'Software' has produced for Yung Lean and became popular through tear-stained edits of tracks by Danny Brown, Three Six Mafia, The Pack & Main Attrakionz.

23Fat Goth, Hagana, Fatalists Sneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
Hailing from Dundee the three piece rock band Fat Goth have risen from underdogs to fan favourites for rock enthusiasts who want proper meaty, ball hair rising rock from “three chums with a shared enthusiasm for interesting and entertaining rock music". They have been on Kerrang's legendary Pandora strip twice and featured in the magazine and to add to this have had stellar reviews from Rock Sound, Q, Metal Hammer, The Skinny and Drowned in Sound that are amongst those who’ve highlighted the band’s humorous, brazen style. This attention and praise led them to be nominated for a Scottish Alternative Music Award in 2013 and 2014.

Coming back after a break from the heady heights of fame and (mis)fortune their new album 'Enorm!' came out last month which has seen the band turn away from the tongue-n-cheek, don't care attitude that brought fans heavy rock music with sinister humour. Now Fat Goth's ire has turned towards the political and social mess we currently all find ourselves in. “We live in a world where sociopolitical discourse, injustice and prejudices are rife and appear to increase on a daily basis, resulting in such dire circumstances becoming ‘the norm’ and subsequent headlines being met with continual indifference and fatigue,” frontman Stewart states. They get this anger and frustration into 30 minutes of fast-paced, powerful and dynamic rock.

29Mike Servito at JuiceSneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
The Bunker New York - Ghostly - Brooklyn

Mike Servito is from a very special yet temporary and partially lost fertile crescent of techno / house / party DJing. It was a time when raves were still a fresh idea, almost felt like a revolution, and DJs like Claude Young, D Wynn, Derrick Carter and Mike Huckaby were informing an upcoming generation. If you look directly to that inspired generation you will find the lost threads of Detroit Techno, House and beyond, you will find a group of DJs with insanely deep mixing skills, the ability to rock almost any kind of party with an improvisational approach that is so skilled it makes everything seem so well thought out that even they don't know where their set will go. But, it will take you there! In the future, this special generation of deep midwest mixers will be remembered and revered as the wizards they are, long after the trendy players have lost their luster.

Detroit never forgot about Mike Servito, his upfront dirty deep and bitchy taste has had an impact on Detroit nightlife for over a decade. From debuting in 1995 at Dat's Poorboy parties, to being a resident at blackbx and Ghostly's Untitled (along with Derek Plaslaiko, Tadd Mullinix, Matthew Dear, and Ryan Elliott), contributing to the bizarrely popular, wild and free Dorkwave, and progressing that concept into Sass (the hippest queer party in Detroit at the time), to blowing minds at Interdimensional Transmissions' No Way Back parties, Servito has made his impression. Moving to Brooklyn, Detroit's loss has been their gain, as he has found a proper home with a residency at The Bunker, and representation by Beyond Booking in North America and Odd Fantastic in Europe.

4Green Day + Rancid + SlavesBellahouston Park
Bellahouston Park, Glasgow
As a reaction to overwhelming public demand, we are delighted to announce that Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and Grammy Award-winning rock band Green Day will return to Scotland on July 4th 2017, playing a huge outdoor headline show in Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park. Having amassed in excess of 75 million album sales to date, the show is in support of their 12th studio album, Revolution Radio, which was released by Reprise Records on October 7th this year.

Main support for the show will come from Berkeley, California’s Punk Rock icons, Rancid, who last year re-issued their seminal record ‘…And Out Come The Wolves’ on it’s 20th anniversary.

Produced by Green Day and recorded in Oakland, Revolution Radio is a potent 12-track blitz of angst-ridden anthems that unites Green Day's fully formed stylistic approach with lyrical themes that address the complexities and uncertainties of modern day existence. Musically, the album is raw, visceral, and fearless — solidifying the band's reign as one of the leading voices in rock music. Inspired by recent events, the first single "Bang Bang” marks a welcome return from a band with more to say than ever.

31Skating Polly + Hands Off GretelBroadcast
Broadcast, Glasgow
Skating Polly, a sister duo from Oklahoma made up of Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse, formed in 2009 after a jam session at the girls’ Halloween party. After recording their debut album Taking Over the World in their living room. Their sophomore album, Lost Wonderfuls, (produced by Exene Cervenka of X and mixed by Kliph Scurlock of The Flaming Lips) was released in April, 2013. Their third album, Fuzz Steilacoom, released March of 2014 was tracked by Calvin Johnson of Beat Happening at Dub Narcotic Studio.

Raised on ‘70s punk and early-‘90s alt-rock, Mayo (age 15) and Bighorse (19) mine inspiration from artists as disparate as Johnny Cash, The Ramones, Nirvana, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Bikini Kill and saturate their own songs with a raw energy reminiscent of their musical heroes. Skating Polly takes a minimalist approach to songwriting, with the two self-taught musicians (Bighorse plays guitar, Mayo plays a guitar/bass hybrid called a basitar, and both girls play drums and piano) crafting super-catchy melodies mainly by “messing around with our instruments and figuring out how to make cool noises,” according to Bighorse. But despite their stripped-down aesthetic, their songs contain a rich emotionalism that’s at turns brutally in-your-face, gut-wrenchingly tender, and irresistibly fun. A critic described their single ‘Alabama Movies’ as “an undeniable piece of work…a knockout punch that pummels your rib cage into shrapnel shards for all its thunderous percussion, palpable tension and Kelli Mayo’s piercing, possessed vocals.”

Along with earning the adoration of Cervenka (whom they befriended after attending one of the X singer’s 2010 solo shows and playing their demos on a cell phone), Skating Polly has found fans and supporters in Rosanne Cash, Kat Bjelland and Lori Barbero (Babes in Toyland), Sean Lennon, Donita Sparks (L7), Kate Nash, John Doe (X), legendary DJ Rodney Bingenheimer and the actor Viggo Mortensen. They have shared the stage with punk legends like Mike Watt, and hit the road with indie heavy-hitters Deerhoof, Kate Nash, Flaming Lips and Band of Horses. The stepsisters typically optimize their travel time by writing songs on their ukulele.

Prolific songwriters who are constantly recording when not on the road, the duo is finalizing two new releases for 2015. In the meantime, they are hitting the road with Perfect Pussy in March. In May, they will play overseas for the first time when they tour the UK with the reunited Babes in Toyland.

Both Mayo and Bighorse are intent on ignoring what’s fashionable and staying true to their passion for challenging music with long-lasting appeal. “The musicians we’re most inspired by are the ones who keep on going and going, who devote their entire lives to coming up with new and different stuff,” says Mayo. “A lot of times at our shows people will come up to us and tell us, ‘Keep on doing what you’re doing, don’t ever stop’ and we’re just like, ‘Yeah—we weren’t planning on ever stopping.”
