Desert Mountain Tribe
Desert Mountain Tribe
Establishing themselves in the current psych-rock scene in 2014 with the release of their debut 'DMT EP', the London based trio Desert Mountain Tribe have subsequently proved themselves a formidable live presence after sharing stages with the likes of Toy, Wovenhand, The Wytches and Damo Suzuki and performing at several festivals. That 12" EP generated positive coverage from many media pundits, while lead track 'Take A Ride' attracted airplay on BBC 6Music (including a 'Recommends' slot). Recorded direct to tape at Shaken Oak Studios, Oxon and mastered by Brett Orrison of The Black Angels, the scope of its four songs clearly demonstrated that this was a band to watch. Its release followed the appearance of another early group effort on 'Reverb Conspiracy Vol 2' (released jointly by Fuzz Club Records and Austin Psych Fest).

2015 has seen DMT attract rave notices from the psych community in mainland Europe via appearances at Eindhoven Psych Lab and Lisbon Psych Fest along with their first headlining tours of Scandinavia, the Baltics and Germany. This has subsequently led to a Europe-wide label deal with the Hamburg based indie powerhouse Membrane and a North American deal with Metropolis Records, who will release the band's debut album in March 2016.

The album was recorded during the second half of 2015 and is both expansive and explosive in its musical breadth.
Speed Control
Powerful. Animated. Rawk!

"It's like seeing the Police before they broke in '77.
A band with this much drive is unstoppable."
David J. Taylor (Producer – F.A.B.)

Straight out of – 40 degrees in Canada's Yukon, the power trio
SPEED CONTROL hits hard, fast and with a sound some compare to Nirvana,
and even early Police. Quoted as being "Parka Punk" by Stuart Derdeyn of
the BC Province, Speed Control, made up of brothers Graeme (guitar/vox) and Jody Peters (bass/vox), and drummer Ian March, is known for their live shows and their passion for playing hard, fast and REAL ROCK!!

Speed Control is not only a hard-hitting rock trio. They have dedicated themselves to furthering music education and bringing music back into kids' lives which has led to a full endorsement by Yamaha Music. In the summer, between club and festival shows, Speed Control teaches "RAWK Camps" which are partnered with Yamaha Canada, giving the kids brand new instruments to play, and equipment to run the camps. This allows Speed Control to visit many remote communities some of which do not have a music store.

Speed Control also supplements their winter touring by bringing their
patented "Rags to RAWK" history of rock n' roll into elementary, middle, and high schools. This show follows the journey of rock from 1898 to present day.
The Wild Lips
The Wild Lips
The Moonspinners
The Moonspinners play rock and roll gems straight out of a record hound's desert island platter pack-- a tasty blend of hip shakin' soul, girl group, French and Italian pop, 70's punk and garage with a bazillion twists and turns along the way. Their trick bag of originals also includes their own theme song! So, don't miss The Moonspinners as they streak through the galaxy, leaving astonished dance floors in their wake.
