MURMAN – Hailing from Brighton and London, MURMAN are a four-piece band who put out dazzling songs that leave an indelible mark on their listeners. Their influences include Joy Division, Bruce Springsteen, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Idles, Gang of Youths.
Known for their thunderous, energetic live shows and memorable performances, the band have played at infamous venues such as Scala and Camden Assembly, supporting headliners including Lucia & The Best Boys and ShitKid, Porridge Radio.
VOODOO RAYS – Originally called Parade, the band begun in 2009 as a solo project by londoner Frank Elliott. After advertising on gumtree for anyone interested in playing songs from the resulting album ‘Descension’ live, the band became a three piece; Andy Symes, also from East London on bass, Graham Hadley, originally from Toronto on drums and Elliott on guitar and voice. Initially influenced by American groups such as Husker Du and Unwound, classic psychedelia such as early Pink Floyd and the Chocolate Watchband, and modern progressive music by the likes of Porcupine Tree and Radiohead, the band started playing live, mostly in the East End, but also occasionally other towns and cities across England. A name change to Voodoo Rays soon followed after the classic track by Guy Called Gerald. Originally a spiky three piece band described as like ‘Sonic Youth playing early Floyd songs’, the group released five more albums in the next six years, gradually shifting towards a more gilded sound that brought in Krautrock, Art Rock, post punk and techno elements to the sound. After releasing their most accessible record yet, Wider, in January 2017, the band decided to expand, hiring the Italian guitarist Angelo Campagna to the line-up. He brought a love of quirky digital keyboards with him, leading to the latest album, Spectral, a kaleidoscopic whirlwind of techno and pyschedelic influences woven seamlessly together. The band are currently setting up a series of gigs to showcase the new album.
