It's what we know the most about. We've been knee deep in local bands for 5 years, and we are making them more of a concern for us now than ever. So it kinda fits that we can suggest some local bands for you to listen to.

Make what you will of them, we happen to love them.

Band of Skulls
a local bit of swaggering blues...

Haunted Stereo
somewhere between indie, and alt-folk...

Mother's Auxillary
solo effort, speaks of folk, electronica, and beautiful harmonies.

They Came and Ate Us
Some fast-paced, driving, and noisy kraut rock influenced tunes.

The lighter side of instrumental. Referencing Eno's ambient period.

If you want know more let us know, and we'll see what else we can hook you up with.

Submission themes/Southampton Zine Fair/Spoken Word


Submission Themes for Festival:
We are getting closer to our Arts Festival on June 5th, 2010.
The idea is to make some of the art available for free, to promote and celebrate local artists to the population of Southampton.
We’ve decided the themes for submission for the festival.
Artists are being asked to submit work within the following three themes:

Drums – To represent the creative elements at the festival
Birds – To represent the park space
Boats – To represent Southampton’s heritage.

All works of art will be displayed around the park, and upon request can be considered for our Film Tent Gallery.

Southampton’s First Zine fair:
A quick point to high light something very cool happening this weekend (Sat 21st & Sun 22nd). For the first time ever Southampton is hosting it’s own Zine Fair. You can find out about it here:

Spoken word:
For those of you interested in the spoken word, Apples and Snakes are hosting regular nights at the Nuffield Theatre. The next event is being held on Monday 14th Dec, from 7.30pm.
They’ve called the event “451”
And is going to be spoken word to enthral, excite and entertain. Their guest on the 14th will be El Crisis. Whose style of poetry and performance is truly unique. Combining a hypnotic mixture of rap, spoken word, song and chant, he relates his experiences, stories, street-style philosophy and viewpoints on the world and society today. He is one of the most dynamic voices in UK poetry.
El Crisis' performances are enlightening, extraordinary and unforgettable.
