Rude Mechanicals
Rude Mechanicals often get compared to The Birthday Party, Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart, The Tigerlilies and early Roxy Music. Their style has been called Post-Punk, Swamp Blues, Dark Cabaret and we particularly liked a recent suggestion - Psycho Cabaret.

Tom Robinson described them as “wild, wicked weirdness... a little bit Flying Lizards, a little bit Native Hipsters and a great deal like nothing you've heard before..." (Tom Robinson BBC6 Music). They are lead by the flamboyant Miss Roberts and it is the surreal products of her imagination that permeate the band.

Cowboy Flying Saucer
Cowboy Flying Saucer is an incarnation spawned from a conversation in a Walthamstow pub. An experimental vehicle for sonic fun and adventure.

Influences: time, space, electricity, tardigrades, God Saves The Earth Flying Saucer Foundation, The Middle Ages, smoke blackened paper, spring reverb, hypnosis, isolation, beer, celestial bodies, insects, rebounding objects, internal ramblings, dreams

FOrmed by Patrick Lyons Poet. Broadcaster, and promoter, has been a figure in the underground London independent music scene with his Radio show and music night Ph7 Neutral Zone show.
