The Manchester noise rock orchestra who started things off have a new slab of vinyl out on Golden Lab Records: http://goldenlabrecords.com/

Katie’s new album “Dioptrics” was a big seller at the merch stall but if you missed out you can still buy the handmade CDR or the download from:

If you already grabbed one at the event and are now hungry for more already then I’d suggest “After The Flood” a 20 minute piece made in response to the 2012 Hebden Bridge floods. Very apt as Todmorden came a couple of inches from flooding on the Friday of the festival. CDR long gone but only £3 for a download

Daniel has only just started to use his actual name so I’m going to have to point you to a favourite of mine recorded under his previous alias of Hering und seine sieben Sachen. Name your price


Guttersnipes are a brand new band with only this debut EP to offer to you. However, download only is name your price and the handmade CDRs are only £2!


You can download Ambrosia(@)’s newest release “Neacute Veacute” from http://www.bombshop.org/projects/ambrosia-neacute-veacute/ and also play the retro computer game created to celebrate its release

Bird People have built up a formidable and extensive discography but I’m gonna be totally corrupt and point you to their newest release which I’ve put out on cassette: http://wasistdas.co.uk/label/bird-people-constellations/


Kemper Norton’s bandcamp has this rare EP for a nice price:

and also a series of Unrequited EPs for free


Most of Chicaloyoh’s set came from her new EP “Les Sept Salons”. If you forgot to pick up a vinyl on the night it can still be bought from the label:

Got that but want to know where to go next? Her 2013 album “Folie Sacrée” made our end of year list

Tor Ist Das! was the first time these fine fellows ever played together as a trio – literally. So there is nothing of them as a trio but Liles has a very limited EP which features a track with Maniac and a remix of Cancer, Carl’s band. You can get it from: http://www.andrewliles.com/discography/fckwit-e-p/

And the final line-up announcements are

Well, ladies and gentlemen, we ask you to sit down, put your feet up and light up a nice pipe of your favourite shag because we are about to do our final festival line-up announcements.

Let us begin with Richard Dawson, the man who has been having something of a break out year with sold out shows leaving delighted audiences. If you only know him for his records then you don’t really know him yet because he has mesmerising stage presence.

Kemper Norton’s sound is produced through employment of acoustic instrumentation and vocals but don’t be fooled, Kemper is not just about the folk music. With dance rhythms he’ll transform pastoral scenes into electronic dreams.

Terrine is the solo project of Claire Gapenne from French noise band Headwar. Her output so far as Terrine has leant heavily towards wild, noisy no wave rock assaults but with some way-out distorted experimental edges. She may as well be a band of five for the sonic riots she creates.

Hellvete is the solo project of Glen Steenkiste from Belgian cosmonauts Sylvester Anfang II. He explores deep, ornate dronespaces and has released for labels like Blackest Rainbow, Sloow Tapes, Eiderdown and (K-RAA-K)³. The architecture of the Church will serve as the perfect acoustics for a set like this. Prepare yourself to see through the roof.

Finally, we are very excited to be hosting a collaboration between ecstastic Irish drone trio Woven Skull and New York composer and string scraper Core Of The Coalman. This fantastic four previously collaborated on a blazing album on Feathered Coyote Records.

They join Andrew Liles/Maniac/Carl Stokes Trio, Ashtray Navigations, Chicaloyoh, Sam McLoughlin, Bird People, Lutine, Laura Cannell, Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura, Girl Sweat, Daniel Voight, Flamingo Creatures, Ambrosia(@)and Isnaj Dui. Two full days of folk, drone, experimental music and noise in the beautiful setting of Todmorden Unitarian Church. Plus a warm up party on the Friday with The Family Elan & The Bongoleeros at the superb Golden Lion pub, also the venue for our afterparties.
