KYTV Festival 2016

Following on from our previous revelation that Ferocious Dog will join their hosts Ned’s Atomic Dustbin at the Manchester Academy for this year’s newly relocated KYTV Festival 2016, we can today reveal the very special guests cordially invited to the occasion for your listening pleasure… EMF.

She Drew The Gun announce new album and UK Tour

She Drew The Gun

Skeleton Key Records are pleased to announce the release of Memories of The Future. The superb debut LP from She Drew The Gun. 

The debut draws lyrical inspiration from Louisa Roach’s (aka She Drew The Gun) own real life experiences.

That isn’t afraid to explore or veer outside the norm with a Sci-Fi protest song and dreamy love song straight out of a Kurt Vonnegut novel amongst the gems on the album.

The album was recorded at Parr Street studios, Li...
