Transgressive Records and Rockfeedback will be once again proudly hosting the "Transgressive and Friends" stage at the legendary Leeds Festival on Sunday night. Both Rockfeedback and Transgressive family members will be offering their DJing talents to compliment the stage's already amazing line-up. Expect quite frankly dangerous mash ups of Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Rednex, and, as is customary, we'll finish with half an hour of very samba.
The line-up includes:
FUTURE OF THE LEFT
Hailing from the Welsh capital; big faves of ours and yours, Future of the Left will be topping the "Transgressive and Friends" stage bill and flying the flag with their distinctive brand fierce noise-rock. Comprised of former Mclusky and Jarcrew members; guitarist and frontman Andy Falkous, drummer Jack Egglestone and bassists Kelson Mathias have played together since 2005 and are sure to impress both adoring fans and fresh ears on a Sunday night. New LP Travels With Myself and Another is absolutely amazing.
When friends Dave Okumu, Tom Herbert and Leo Taylor began working on Dave's solo project in 2006, the final product of The Invisible may have not been expected. Despite all members belonging to a host of other projects, their highly danceable version of indie-rock has fantastically earned them a Barclaycard Mercury Prize nomination earlier this year. The Invisible have definitely made themselves seen and heard in recent months, and are no strangers to a Rockfeedback stage or two. We've invited them back here to keep some sneakers twitching.
MYSTERY JETS DJS
Not at all shy from stepping up to the wheels of steel; back on Transgressive Publishing’s books as of this year, we'll have the fellas moving the Leeds crowd here with a selection of tunes undoubtfully as fun and well loved as their own material. Boom. Sirens. Etc.
PULLED APART BY HORSES
We've made it VERY clear how we're big fans of these chaps, and PABH quite the bi-polar disco-frenzied hardcore is a notably awesome live show; known for occasional nudity and various other forms rock 'n' roll tomfoolery. Those guys... After their formation in late 2007, the band rehearsed above The Packhorse pub in Leeds, and as Leeds boys, they should be making an extra racket for the home crowd. LOCAL HEROES!
Disguising in masks could suggest the Wave Pictures are an ugly bunch (they're not, we’ve seen them, and they're very pretty!) but their blend of disco bass, twinkling synths and pretty pop vocals suggest their mystery is merely an addition to their quirky disco sound. Armed with a host of synths; they are known for their joyous and engaging performances, one certainly to catch as the festival draws to a close.
TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB
New to the Transgressive fold this year, electro-pop 3 piece TDCC have been compared to the likes of Death Cab for Cutie and Broken Social Scene, however these loose comparisons emphasise their fusion of genres and defiance of being pigeon-holed. Based in Bangor, Northern Ireland; Two Door Cinema club complete the "Transgressive and Friends" stage line-up upon this glorious year.
