Herbert Jansch (3 November 1943 – 5 October 2011) was a Scottish folk musician and founding member of the band Pentangle. He was born in Glasgow and came to prominence in London in the 1960s, as an acoustic guitarist, as well as a singer-songwriter. He recorded at least 25 albums and toured extensively from the 1960s to the 21st century. Jansch was a leading figure in the 1960s British folk revival, touring folk clubs and recording several solo albums, as well as collaborating with other musicians such as John Renbourn and Anne Briggs. In 1968, he co-founded the band Pentangle, touring and recording with them until their break-up in 1972. He then took a few years' break from music, returning in the late 1970s to work on a series of projects with other musicians. He joined a reformed Pentangle in the early 1980s and remained with them as they evolved through various changes of personnel until 1995. Until his death, Jansch continued to work as a solo artist. Jansch's work influenced such artists as Al Stewart, Paul Simon, Johnny Marr, Elton John, Ian Anderson, Bernie Taupin, Bernard Butler, Jimmy Page, Nick Drake, Graham Coxon, Donovan, Neil Young, Hope Sandoval, Fleet Foxes, Devendra Banhart, Neil Halstead, and Roy Harper. Jansch received two Lifetime Achievement Awards at the BBC Folk Awards: one, in 2001, for his solo achievements and the other, in 2007, as a member of Pentangle.

Hanoi Rocks was a Finnish rock band formed in 1979. They were the first Finnish band to chart in the UK and they were also popular in Japan. The band broke up in June 1985 after the drummer Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley died in a car accident during their first US tour in December 1984. Original vocalist Michael Monroe and guitarist Andy McCoy reunited in 2001 with a new lineup that lasted until 2009. Although musically closer to traditional rock n' roll and punk, the band have been cited as a major influence in the glam metal genre for bands such as Guns N' Roses, Skid Row and Poison.Andy McCoy wrote this song("Until I Get You") at the band's manager Seppo Vesterinen's house in Helsinki. McCoy hated the song but Razzle loved it, and wanted it on their next record. Ultimately, McCoy also fell in love with the song. The song is also a great example of Hanoi Rocks' melodic glam rock-style. Also, the arrangement for the song was inspired by Alice Cooper's "I'm Eighteen". L.A. Guns covered the song on their 2004 album Rips the Covers Off.

At a point of uncertainty, IDLES bring you concise carnage. At a time of lies, IDLES bring you honesty. At a time of body shaming and Photoshop, IDLES bring you a visceral barrage of joyous bile. At a time of The Kardashians, IDLES bring you a story of working hard for what and who you love. In a time of polarised politics and murky waters; IDLES and bands like them are needed to remind people that it's ok to dance and laugh and sing in the face of adversity.

Can, founded in 1967 released their debut album Monster Movie (1969) which set them apart from the mainstream, carving out a sound that transcended the boundaries of experimental electronic, jazz and modern classical music. Can’s influence extends from post-punk musicians such as Joy Division and Primal Scream, through avant-garde composers including Bernhard Lang, to Radiohead. Schmidt himself began his musical career as a pupil of Stockhausen and Ligeti, and conducted numerous high-profile orchestras in his native Germany and abroad. Hearing the sounds of Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa in the 60s led to the formation of Can but Schmidt never lost touch with his avant-garde classical upbringing, and it is to Schmidt that Can owed much of its musical eclecticism.

Bragolin is a two-piece post-punk / wave band from Utrecht, The Netherlands. The name is inspired by Italian painter Giovanni Bragolin, famous for his crying boy paintings. The band is led by songwriter/singer/guitarist Edwin van der Velde, with Maria Karssenberg on guitar and organ. Bragolin’s sound contains a mixture of baritone guitars reminding of 80’s new wave bands, to 90’s reverb laden shoegaze guitars. Instead of the music which the guitar sounds resemble, the mixture with pounding drummachines and bass synthesizers creates Bragolin’s danceable wave sound. The songs vary from pulsating and addictive riffs in their first released music video ‘Into Those Woods’, to the apocalyptic atmospheres of ‘In Our Field Of Oaks’ which contains guest vocals by dark pop singer Adam Usi. The organ sound, the horror movie inspired lyrics and touching voice complete their unpredicted haunting sound. In 2018 the band released their 8-track debut album ‘I Saw Nothing Good So I Left’ which was recorded by Van der Velde and former band member Isolde Woudstra who also takes credit for the mesmerizing album cover and vocals on the album’s title track. The release was produced by René Jongeneelen of Malochia and Contrast, and was released on Young & Cold Records. Maria Karssenberg joined Bragolin on guitar and organ before the release of the album, after which the two-piece played at various festivals and parties across Europe, among which Wave Gotik Treffen, Extramuralhas, Waveteef, Wavefest and Young & Cold Festival. For their second album Bragolin teamed up with Adam Tristar to release the ‘Bragolin vs Adam Tristar’ album ‘Let Out The Noise Inside’. This is not a split release but a true cooperation featuring the danceable and electronic sound of Adam Tristar combined with the dark atmosphere and vocals of Bragolin. In the summer of 2019 the collaboration released their first single ‘The End Dwells In Us All’, a new uptempo dance floor killer featuring a hypnotizing arpeggiated synth, catchy bariton guitar riff, ghostly musical saw and melancholic vocals with serial killer inspired lyrics. During the year Adam Tristar has also joined Bragolin on stage for a limited amount of shows. After the single the full album was released on CD and vinyl, again on Young & Cold Records. The album features eight songs of which six are new and two songs where each band covered / remixed the other.
