Idle Crooks & Englishmen formed in 2015 and set out to write a set of huge anthem worthy rock tunes. Drawing on a rich song writing talent present between all members, the band continue to focus their style in to well crafted, riff filled, venue filling music with huge towering bursts which take the listener on a dynamic audio journey. Recent highlights include the release of their debut EP and supported UK tour, the band have pushed their dirty rock music into the alternative scene and smashed out some incredible and unique songs. The band take pride in their live performances and smash out a lot of energy. The band are a four piece of brother like best friends who all love performing and will never not go all out even at practice.

"one of Brightons most exciting bands." - Soapbox 2016

"Riff is the key word for Idle Crooks. All the tracks start with an instantly catchy riff and waste no time in developing/exploding before one gets too comfortable. That explosive vibe, courtesy of Adam Halls frantic drumming, carries weight and is frequently found across the four tracks. Strangers Greed, a ballad in comparison to the raw delivery of the other tracks (most notably the closer Witchcraft). The pacing of the EP, aided by melodic breaks accompanied by Hurns crooning voice, is perfectly executed and lends itself to the expansive and filled out sound. For only a four song EP, its staggering how much the Crooks squeeze in. Riff after riff, drum fill after technical drum fill, crash after crash, youre pulled along by the meaty hook theyve tossed." - Bitter Sweet Symphonies 2017


In a time where alternative music has largely lost its raw edge and originality, punk rock unfortunately doesnt have the bite it once had. Ready to chomp down on the scene however, Valensoles candid music and high-energy live performances are set to give punk rock a new lease on life. Reared by an eclectic mix of rock music, with a particular affection for Nirvana, Green Day, Sum 41, and early Foo Fighters, the band have taken their cues from past masters and have forged their own imprint and style.

Sweet Jonny

SPANISH FLY: "Sweet Jonny are without doubt a talented bunch with all the right influences.They wouldnt be out of place at this years Rebellion Festival or Nice n Sleazy - Its not just the sound, not just the songs. I think it is the whole package."

"Sweet Jonny are clearly well know in these parts...and their songs seem to be borne out of a dislike of conventional music and a desire to do something new."


Grymm are an energetic indie-grunge hybrid with all the catchiness of pop, outfit from Brighton. Synths ring out over fuzzed-up bass, sharp blows of frenzied cymbals and hits of percussion cut deep within the ensuing rage of guitar noise. The band have created a cacophony of sound, yet they still intrinsically maintain a strict grip on melody and vocal hooks.
