The Pale White are a Newcastle based Alternative Rock band. Comprising of brothers Adam (lead vocals, guitar) and Jack Hope (drums) and long time friend Tom Booth (bass), the group first came together when Adam returned home from London to the North East armed with a handful of demos and a fierce determination to start a band. Things very quickly took shape when the band adopted the name, which – “alludes to the bright light people claim to see before they die”, aptly reflecting the dark streak that runs through the bands sound. With early support slots opening for Maximo Park and Band of Skulls in their hometown, sold out headline shows soon became a formality, with the band graduating from venue to bigger venue across the city and developing a solid word of mouth following.

Stripped back, raw and showing just a hint of English blues, Johnny Lloyd‘s songs which have emerged thus far have something intangibly special about them.
Take EP title track, ‘Pilgrims’, which has shades of 80s songcraft in there, with the lyrics – “take me driving like you used to do” – almost nodding towards the influence of Springsteen.
Pulled Apart By Horses are less a gang and more one big f**ed-up dysfunctional family. The Leeds quartet are a tightly-knit rock band who make music that thrills and menaces, their songs armed with suckerpunch riffs and zinging choruses. They formed in 2008 out of the ashes of various bands in Leeds. Since then they have existed in their own chaotic ecosystem, embarking on relentless tours around the world and stopping only to make 2010’s punkily infectious self-titled debut and its snarling 2012 follow-up ‘Tough Love’ (produced by Gill Norton – Pixies/Foo Fighters etc.) . Everything they’ve done has been drenched in a sense of youthful recklessness, of all or nothing ardour. With third album ‘Blood’ they took things a step forward with wider musical and lyrical themes, embracing their love of psychedelic cinema and developing as a band whilst retaining the thrilling ‘Horses’ sound.
But life doesn’t come with a user manual. Amid the constant noise, clamour and confusion of the Information Age, sometimes – as with much of the technology which surrounds us human beings work best after simply being switched off, unplugged, reconnected and switched back on again or more accurately, the band felt a simple desire to fall in love all over again with the pure joy of making music.

“Once they started back in 1993, Melt-Banana have remained like an eye of a hurricane that’s 10 times crazier than the hurricane itself. One of the core bands to emerge from the same roiling soup that birthed art-damaged titans such as the Flying Luttenbachers and the Locust, the female-fronted Japanese group added a few twists to the genetic makeup of 90s noise rock. Japan’s own rich noise tradition was little more than a touchstone for Melt-Banana, and the group’s cryptic otherness elevated it above its peers.” Pitchfork
