Featuring The Unsung, Kontiki Suite, Blind Fiction & Ogres of Go Go
The Unsung - 'multi-genred', 'alternative pop' with depth. They make music thats melodic, intense, moody and energetic.
Kontiki Suite share a collective love of melody, harmony, psychedelia and country, born out of an appreciation of the B-troika brigade of bands from the mid-1960s to today.
Blind Fiction utilise the talents and experience of all 6 members to unleash a diverse range of influences that includes post-punk, reggae, folk, pop and rock, resulting in music that's hard to pin down.
The Ogres of Go-go - Gentlemen's country appareliser boogie mixed with foreboding waltz/funk meandering.
