THE NIGHT & DAY SHOWCASE
The ‘World’s Loudest Boyband’, SKINT, are a 5-piece alternative punk band from Greater Manchester with Isaac Martin on guitar and vocals, Tom Bain on drums, Kyle Leith and Naomi Lewis on guitar, and Nathan Chin on bass. The young band have quickly developed their own unique sound, with loud, dirty, punky instrumentals and aggressive, powerful vocals influenced by American hip-hop.
DAN BIBBY & THE AESTHETIC KNOBS
Dan Bibby & The Aesthetic Knobs are an energentic alt-rock 4 piece from West Lancashire, whose pop-punk inspired songs are punctuated by, “quality” stage banter.
THOSE FUCKING SHOWFLAKES
Those Fucking Snowflakes are a three piece noisy post-hardcore band from Blackpool, trying to cram elements of mathrock and post-rock into genres they have no right to be in. Formed in November 2018 by members of Dinosaurs Are Shit Dragons, Litterbug, Uncle Paul, Goonies Never Say Die and a shitload of other abhorrent bands as a means to scream about things that annoy us. We might record and release music this year, we might fight and split up. Who knows, who cares.
On the face of it, Glassheads are a pop rock band from Leeds, drawing from post punk bands, New Romanticism lyric with experimental guitar textures. However, they have managed to combine a wide range of musical knowledge with their everyday ordinariness, they have managed to create music which challenges issues faced in the transition between cosested early adulthood and freedom, yet they present it in an alternative and interesting light.
They invite the audience in to their world with their introspective presentation, engulfing their audience in a wash of spiralling textures rooted in stoic rhythmical backdrops. With lyrics phrased in a problem like manor, Glassheads offer listeners answers to personal issues within familiar song structures.
Renown for their personable interaction with their fans and indifference for the pedestal that many bands stride for. Their genuine everyday ness sees and down to earth nature is expressed by their frequent attendance at the local pub having a pint and their openness to their audience.
