Featuring SOUNDS LIKE A STORM + BAD HOMBRES + TEACUP MONSTER + THE RIFF
Discover 4 alternative/rock bands coming from Scotland, England, Wales and France.
Emerging from the depths of Glasgow’s dark underbelly are Bad Hombres; a rock’n’roll four-piece with heaps of swagger and a definite menacing streak (Tenement TV).’ Bad Hombres formed and met in Glasgow, and consist of Jack Conlon (vocals, guitar), Paul Duff (vocals, bass), Innes McGarry (drums) and Brendan Cairney (guitar). With influences ranging from dystopian fiction, socialist literature, classic rock and post punk, the four piece are quickly establishing themselves as one of Scotland’s best emerging acts. Infusing a classic rock and punk grit with indie pop sensibilities and political lyrical wit, Bad Hombres’ live performances have made the band a live force to be reckoned with. Having made their debut at the world famous King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in August 2017, the band gigged relentlessly in 2018 with high profile appearances across the UK for promoters such as This Feeling, Control Social Club, Club Sabbath and Ratchet Presents. Following the release of ‘Manuel!’, Bad Hombres later joined forces with one of their songwriting heroes Kieren Webster (The View). Webster, along with Scotty Anderson, oversaw production duties on the bands subsequent single releases and, which were promoted heavily on The View’s social media channels and saw the band lamenting the politically and socially abhorrent forces at play in the United Kingdom. The band recently released their debut EP, Protest As You Please, which tackles the rise of fascism and poverty in the UK, and has been described as the ‘epitome of Scottish Punk.
