York’s Bad Paintings record label have gathered an exciting collection of upcoming artists to play The Woolpack tonight – here’s a little introduction.

Brown Brogues are two chaps with feral guitar riffs and primal drum beats from Manchester, fresh from a UK tour last month.

Their Soundcloud has plenty to dig in to, and you can stream the album they released late last year over on Clash.
Worm are a four-piece grunge-noise-rock outfit from York, although they don’t always sound like that, and this song is really sweet:
Luke Saxton‘s piano-led, swirling numbers take clear influence from the Beatles, but are really rather touching in their own right. You can stream his whole album here:
