✦ CUNTZ (Melbourne / AUS)
CUNTZ are a four piece thug punk band hailing from Melbourne, Australia. Forming in 2012 with neither plan nor forethought, the quartet soon discovered a knack for songwriting characterised by cut glass guitars and synthesizers, turgid yet rhythmic bass lines, unique drums and unhinged, charismatic vocals.

✦ OBNOX (Cleveland / US)
Bim Thomas is a lucky bastard. Upon settling in Columbus-by-God-Ohio in the early ‘90s, he found himself neck-deep in a killer music scene, and soon ended up as the Ringo for the legendary blues-punk power duo The Bassholes (ask the Black Keys who their influences were and that name will spring up, that’s a promise). Drifting northward to Cleveland as the sun rose on the 21st Century, Thomas landed in the drum throne for spastic post-punk upstarts This Moment in Black History, who even after ten years and a membership diaspora STILL rule the CLEpunk roost, while simultaneously keeping the pulse for other revered CLE outfits like The Deathers and Puffy Areolas.

✦ SALAD BOYS (New Zealand)
Salad Boys came together at the end of 2012 with members from other illustrious Christchurch groups T54, Bang! Bang! Eche! and the Dance Asthmatics. Recorded, the Salad Boys are deceivingly charming, presenting a careful but curious balance of well-informed pop melodies, hypnotizing rhythms and heady instrumentation. The group’s self-titled mini-album released in 2013 caused something of a mini-sensation, receiving praise from the likes of Stolen Girlfriends Club, Mess and Noise, and many more.

✦ SALOME (Pittsburgh / US)
ex-Free Clinic, ex-Baby Bird.
