17:15 - UBIK
Those walls could use a bit of paint.


That cathedral looks dated.

Those strings of cherished memories are washed out from overuse.

Do trees have to be green?

Ubik is the sound of paintbrushes, chisels and creeping bedroom heartbreaks. Redecorate to an alien world. Drones are demolition, basslines and beats blueprints for buildings.

Tired of your surroundings? Don’t move. Listen. Transformation beats travel agents. Ubik is never home.

18:00 - MY CROOKED TEETH

My Crooked Teeth is the work of Oxford musician, Jack Olchawski. 

Olchawski's songs create a living snapshot of the everyday, dressed up in bittersweet melodies.

Having spent the last decade contributing to a wildly eclectic set of projects; from the sprawling country-shoegaze of UK cult outfit, Toliesel, to drumming for the live incarnation of Message To Bears' yearning ambient electronica, he has since become recognized as an emerging songwriting talent in his own right.

My Crooked Teeth is Jack Olchawski at his most resolute. Lyrically driven and quietly catchy, his songs are at once hugely personal, all the while written for everyone.

Debut EP 'Watch The Darkness Stumble Home' is available digitally through Bear on A Bicycle Records. All physical copies have sold out. 2016 will see work commence on his follow up.

Previous support slots include Evan Dando (of The Lemonheads), Ags Connolly, Angaleena Presley (of the Pistol Annies) Darren Hayman, My Darling Clementine and The Epstein. Other appearances include Boomtown Fair, Truck Festival, Cornbury Festival, and Estonia's Tartu Indiefest.

21:45 - ALPHABET BACKWARDS

Alphabet Backwards’ ethos is simple: To champion the noble art of Pop music, dancing all the way. It’s infectious, and puts a smile on your face. It’s a summery, joyous, happy-go-lucky affair, punctuated with an irresistible synth buzz and hooks aplenty. After all, Pop is not a dirty word. The band grew around the song writing of James Hitchman. One man and his guitar can only go so far on his own, so he recruited people he enjoyed playing with. Josh and Paul had played in previous bands with him, so there were no problems on that front. Bob Tom was pretty easy to find too, he was working as a church organist just down the road from Josh, whose sister was finally enlisted after James heard her singing in the shower. They’ve put the ground work in developing an enthusiastic and lively fan-base in Oxford, and the word is spreading fast.
