The Magnetic Mind formed in early 2011, brought together by a shared love of 60s garage and psychedelic music. Their early demos caught the ear of White Stripes/Tame Impala producer Liam Watson, who agreed to produce their debut single at the legendary Toe Rag Studios. The single came out on UK indie label Heavy Soul 45s on May 14th 2012, and received airplay on XFM, BBC 6 Music, as well as chalking up some great reviews from Shindig!, Louder Than War, and The Active Listener. The band have just recently put out a download-only single, ‘Stay Away From the Door’, and are working on their debut LP.

The Magnetic Mind onstage at 10.00 pm

Led by Robert Jesse of the Moon Music Orchestra, Bobby J and Hot Teeth bring you the heaviest, most psychedelic of grooves lashed to the shiniest of glammed up super sparkling hooks. Think Queens of the Stone Age meet Funkadelic put though a day-glo Prince filter.

Hot Teeth onstage at 9.00 pm

Yeah Yeah Castle onstage at 9.15 pm

Simon Stanley Ward is a young country singer, pure and simple. Looking like he’s just stepped out of a black and white western, he sounds like the original lonesome cowboy crooner – a charming cross between Neil Young and Charlie Rich, with a voice to match.

Simon Stanley Ward onstage at 8.15 pm

A transplant from San Francisco CA, guitarist/singer/writer Jeremy Mendonca has been doing his unique version of alternative/bluegrass on these European & UK streets for over 10 years now, fronting bands such as Norton Money, The Rejection, and currently The Hallelujah Trails, a rocking electric four piece. Superb country harmonies and super tight playing call to mind a souped up Sweetheart of the Rodeo era Byrds….

The Hallelujah Trails onstage at 10.15 pm

Favourites of Steve Lamacq on Radio 2 and Radio 6, and Gary Crowley on GLR, six piece Lazy Heart Parade play anthemic indie folk with a nod to Neutral Milk Hotel and Arcade Fire that combines ukelele, violin and mandolin with a modern indie rock electric edge and attitude. Whipsmart lyrics and superbly catchy hooks backed by excellent musicianship make for a splendid Saturday night act.

Lazy Heart Parade onstage at 9.15 pm

Indie folk singer songwriter A Kid Called Sorrow begins our Saturday night with a set of wry, melodic and distinctly northern acoustic songs that carry a torch for the kitchen sink dramas and pop classics of late ’50′s and early ’60′s Britain.

A Kid Called Sorrow onstage at 8.30 pm

A motley crue (no not them) of acts will bring you everything from razor sharp mod-flecked indie rock to psychedelic dub folk, Irish trad to county-soul and beyond- expect to see Miami Miami, Burning Wheel, Nic Dawson Kelly, Mariah Wade and Panama Red at various points across the evening. We’ll be open from three, and carrying on with an after party at the Roxy Bar & Screen five minutes away on Brough High Street- the marvellous Moon Hop will be playing ska, rocking blues, reggae and Northern soul til the wee small hours…
