Bitter Sweet Kicks

Bitter Sweet Kicks are a self-described "dirty rock n' roll" band from Melbourne, Australia. Influenced by proto-punk (The Stooges) and old school rock music (New York Dolls, AC/DC), their sound is a mix of raucous rock rhythms and rollin' guitar licks. Helmed by the gravelly rasp of Jack Davies (vocals), the rest of the band is anchored by Johnny Kicks (Bass Guitar), Chris Taranto (Guitar), Brendan Charlie (Guitar) and Joe Cunliffe (Drums). http://www.myspace.com/bittersweetkicks

The Statics

Forming in 2008, the Statics wasted no time getting things started - writing, recording and releasing a debut album by mid 2008 (CandyPants Records), which was then followed by hundreds of hours in a 12 seater van playing every pub, club, radio station, school, dive, all ages festival and house party possible. “We didn’t want to play it safe. We didn’t just wanna be another ‘myspace’ or ‘weekend’ band. We figured fuck it! Lets record an album, get in the van and sell some discs and if we’re lucky a t-shirt or two!” bassist Pat McKenna explains.

Ty Segall

Burying '60s sing-alongs and dance crazes beneath waves of reverb and giddy thud, Ty Segall has carved out his own shelf in the neo-psych garage alongside SF compatriots and collaborators Sic Alps and Thee Oh Sees. As an exploration of the space between Cro-Magnon fuzz and atmospheric acoustic psych, Ty Segall continues to crank out the best new garage rock from San Francisco. Ty Segall is the lead singer of Epsilons, the drummer for Traditional fools, the drummer every once in a while for Party Fowl, and as of February 2009, an occasional guitarist/drummer for Sic Alps.
