Monks of Mellonwah
"Never Been Good"

"Never Been Good" is the second single of 2015 for Monks of Mellonwah (MOM) following from the brilliant "Hideaway" (BBC Radio 2, Amazing Radio, Ch4 Sunday Brunch playlist) and a first look into their new up and coming EP set for release later this year.    "Never Been Good" features a deep infectious bass groove, powerful vocal hooks, sparse  but enigmatic guitars all packed into a three-minutes of punch which will leave you wanting more. 

Based in Sydney, Australia, MOM are a dynamic rock-quarter featuring Vikram Kaushik (fox/guitars), Joseph de la Hoyde (guitar/keys), John de la Hoyde (bass) and Joshua Bassari (drums).  They cite musical and film influences across different genres, movements and eras, bringing their unique and dynamic brand of alt rock to the global music circle.  Core musical influences include Pink Floyd, Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys and Michael Jackson.

MOM toured their debut album, Turn The People, heavily in 2014, completing a 3 month 34 date tour of USA, supporting iconic artists Sevendust and Scott Stapp (voice of Creed), as well as performing for the radio sponsored "Passport Approved Live" show case on an an eight date West Coast Tour.   April 2015 saw MOM return to the USA where they performed showcases at the Music Conferences "Global Rock Summit" and Musexpoin LA.   Since returning home MOM have completed recorded their forthcoming EP and aim to tour extensively throughout the second half of 2015.

M-22 have unveiled their brand new track ‘Good To Be Loved’, a blissed-out vocal smash, perfect for the summer sun. The track shows off M-22’s songwriting expertise, as well as their signature impeccable house production.


The British-German duo burst onto the scene in April with the uplifting piano-led anthem ‘Some Time’. The track has been getting massive support from the likes of The MagicianRoger Sanchez, GRADES, Beth Yen and Tiesto.


Sarah-Jane Crawford made it her Record of the Week on Radio 1Xtra,and the track has been steadily climbing the club charts, so far gaining over a quarter of a million streams on Spotify and Soundcloud.


M-22 are Matt James and Frank Sanders. The two producers became friends in 2014 and have been busy creating hit after hit since.


Matt James started his career as a DJ at the age of 14, and within two years he made his club debut, playing alongside the likes of Pete Tong, Roger Sanchez and Erick Morillo. When word of his productions spread, Ministry of Sound signed him up as a writer/producer and he was responsible for hits by H two O among others. Frank Sanders’ producer career includes credits for the likes of Jason Derulo and Amanda Wilson, as well as a host of huge hits in Germany.


Gorilla Punch Radio, an exciting new alternative rock band from Leeds, are proud to announce the release of their debut single ‘No Retreat’.


After touring extensively in support of artists such as The Struts, The Pigeon Detectives and New City Kings with his former band Titans Troubadours, guitarist and singer Paul James decided to pursue his own sound and formed Gorilla Punch Radio in late 2014.


Mixed by the acclaimed engineer/producer Elliot Vaughan, whose previous clients include: Pulled Apart by Horses, Frank Turner and They Fell From The Sky, ‘No Retreat’ kicks off with an explosive guitar riff that’s sure to have fans banging their heads and punching the air.


The song’s theme focuses around the gritty realities of standing up in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds, with lyrics that are designed to inspire courage and a refusal to back down.


We’re really excited about this song as it has taken a while to craft and perfect. Elliot has successfully captured the energy of Gorilla Punch Radio in this recording, and we can’t wait to share it with everybody!” – Paul James of Gorilla Punch Radio.

Dublin’s Able Archer 

The new single is called The Warden and it’s already been a success in their native Ireland. Their last single “Ghostmaker" was played on BBC 6 Music by Tom Robinson and we’re hoping you like this new offering from them.
They are planning a UK tour in mid August and have already booked Proud in Camden on August 18th.  Focus date for this track is August 17th. It’s already available to download though:-)

She's Gone, Stop Stalling (Sob Stories), Beautiful Monster

Back in the mid to late eighties The Train Set emerged from the Crewe/Winsford indie music scene to make an impact on the Manchester and Liverpool gig circuit as well as the national music press. The band released two 12" singles which both broke the Indie Chart and performed at venues across the country including gigs at Dingwalls, the Astoria in London and Manchester's Hacienda.

The nucleus of the band, Clive Jones (vocals), Andy Boote (guitars) and Mark Shaw (Bass) met at school. They recruited Adam Halford (drums) from Winsford and Dave Hassall from Chester (keyboards) and soon became the tight unit that was eventually signed by renowned Manchester DJ Dave Haslam to his Playhard label.

Briefly managed by Nathan McGough, also manager of The Happy Mondays, the band embarked on a national tour with the Happy Mondays and supported the likes of James at the London Astoria. They were featured in both the NME and Melody Maker through interviews and features by Stuart Maconie and Robin Denslow.
Compilation album 'Never California', released on Firestation Records, features The Train Sets highly sought after singles including 'She's Gone' which was the band's first record, recognised as a stunning debut by the press and selected as NME's single of the week when it was originally released in 1988. Writing in NME, James Brown said "The Train Set have done their growing up in private and will now have no trouble copping off with the entire teenage nation of orphaned Smiths fans". Stuart Maconie described Shes Gone as "sleek and shiny, fizzy and witty", predicting "The Train Set will be huge when the world sees sense". Well, whilst we wait for the world to take heed, immerse yourself in these finely crafted songs and enjoy a band that made a significant impact on the music scene amongst the abundant indie/jangle bands of that era.
This compliation contains previously unreleased tracks from a band that had promised so much but disappeared far too soon. The original members have come together to oversee the release of this retrospective album, providing a vital listening experience and an opportunity to discover The Train Sets material again, or perhaps for the first time.

Following on from the last release "Surf the Sky" by New Zealand Bryce Wastney we are releasing this summer track from his latest CD "Beyond the afterglow".
