For The Orwells, Remember When will be an introduction of sorts—the 12-track rat-race shows the band’s repertoire of pranging riffs and sneering, snot-nosed vocals. The tracks are a walloping war-cry from a generation that up until this point has only offered bubblegum pop—the animus of The Orwells. It’s quite clear early on the in listening to the LP that the band is well aware of the past, the homage rings through the record, using the ghost of punk’s past as their musical sprit guide. Although one might categorize The Orwells’ distinct brand of the blues as garage or punk, they would be wrong. The Orwells sound comes from a deeper, different place–a place both long forgotten and also timeless.


Whistlejacket are a London 5 piece with a penchant for a certain George Stubbs painting. They sport a 17 year age gap and an obsession with The Simpsons. The band are said to combine "shoegaze drones" and "lick ridden grooves" that help to create a "hypnotic and immersive" sound. As well as a regular monthly residency at The Macbeth the band have already played a string of top packed out supports with the likes of Cosmonauts, Night Beats and Loom in all the usual London haunts.
