NĜUGHT (london, uk)
nĝught plays purely instrumental music, always heavy, and with an occasional jazzy or krautrock bent which usually ends up getting compared to the guitar freakouts of classic bands as king crimson or can, as well as more recent outifts like primus and sonic youth.

tilehurst childrens arkestra let the music do the talking. formed by five alumni of denefield School in tilehurst after jamming together for a number of years, the arkestra have been gigging some of reading's more illustrious venues (south street, the rising sun arts centre, global cafe, etc) since 2007 as well as throwing in the odd jaunt to london, hamburg, and bracknell for good measure. their powerful sound is as equally informed by teenage obsessions with metal, indie rock, and rap music as it is by their more mature tastes in krautrock, jazz, and progressive rock - a heady mixture that the band strip down to it's brass tacks, producing short, sharp, precise bursts of songs without the endless "faffing about" connected with many of these genres.

JUSTICE FOR DRAGONS (newbury, uk)
a stonkin' experimental guitar & drum duo. crazy riffs, bangin' drums and some serious skills.
