THEE DAGGER DEBS
Thee Dagger Debs are three girls brought together by their love of 60s Garage and British R’n’B, Pub Rock and Proto Punk. The Pirates (with Johnny Kidd and without), Eddie and the Hot Rods, Dr Feelgood, Nine Below Zero, Hurriganes, Count Bishops, MC5, Thin Lizzy, Slade and The Stranglers -to name a few- always feature heavily in their record boxes.
Laura and Letty have been playing together since 2011, first in The Neasden Bees and then Thee Jezebels, and since the autumn of 2016, they developed their ultimate line-up with Paula in Thee Dagger Debs, an all girl pub-rock power trio. The girls have shared the stage with bands such as Johnny Moped, The Masonics, The Wildebeests, Graham Day and the Forefathers, Giuda and their beloved Los Chicos, and have built up a following both in the UK and across Europe, renowned for their sweaty, high-energy rock ‘n’ roll gigs, followed by happily propping up the bar and dancing ‘til dawn.
After the release of a single and a follow up E.P on State records, they have just finished recording their debut album for Damaged Goods, produced by none other than the legendary Mr. Mike Mariconda himself.

MICHAEL SEAL & THE B POSITIVES
When Michael Seal isn’t making stupid sounds with Proto Idiot he’s trying to make nice(ish) ones with The Be Positives. He’s joined by fellow idiot and drum aficionado Callum Darley, and they’re both joined by bass/ladies man Rob Hatton.
The music they play could be compared to Kinks meet Nilsson with a soupçon of Nick Lowe/Dave Edmunds, served with generous helpings of letting the good times roll.
