BARBAROSSA first came to the attention of FENCE RECORDS in 2004, with a
3 track ep produced by ADEM (domino records) - and he has since released a
mini-album (entitled sea like blood) as part of the collective’s 'picket fence' series.

NO

(london)


ferocious, desperate hardcore punk played by misfits (some of whom also play in
satellites of love, shitty limits and tremors) that sounds rooted in the sounds
of early richmond and mid-western american hardcore (comparisons to die kruezen,
a more rabid white cross and mecht mensch aren't completely invalid),
but not stuck completely in the past.




^^top^^




NOUGHT

(london)


NOUGHT plays purely instrumental music, always heavy, and with an occasional
jazzy or krautrock bent which usually ends up getting compared to the guitar freakouts
of classic bands as king crimson or can, as well as more recent outifts like primus and sonic youth.




^^top^^




PET CAT

(reading)


dream pop reminiscent of galaxie 500 and pre-major label rem.
led by ali dimmick, the guitarist from the much missed HUNTING THE SHY.
currently backed up by will and liam from TODDLERS.

seamus fogarty hails from the west of ireland and writes songs
about mountains that steal t-shirts, women who look like dinosaurs
and various other unfortunate incidents.

he came to the attention of scottish record label FENCE RECORDS after
supporting james yorkston (domino/fence records) at a show in kilkenny.
an invitation to the collective’s annual home game festival in anstruther, fife,
soon followed – with seamus performing in front of about five people at a secret
pub show/bar room brawl. king creosote was one of those in attendance, and was
immediately hooked (nearly left-hooked).
