THE PRIMITIVES (UK)
Fronted by indiepop blonde bombshell Tracy Tracy, The Primitives emerged from the independent scene of the mid-80s that spawned The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, The Wedding Present and Primal Scream. Their sound distilled the shimmering guitar jangle of the Byrds, the buzzsaw style of The Ramones and 60's girl group melodies into two and a half minute pop gems. Regular session guests on John Peel’s radio show, with many an appearance in his Festive Fifty, their career was boosted when Morrissey named them as one of his favourite bands.

CRUEL SUMMER (SF)
Cruel Summer’s sound evokes the dazed, fuzzed-out, swirling noise of the late 1980s UK sound while still sticking to their pop roots. They’ve aptly been crowned San Francisco’s “jangle darlings."

THE OILIES
Are a bay area pop band, formed in the summer of 2016 by Carly Putnam (Art Museums, The Mantles, Reds, Pinks & Purples, Michael O) Britta Leijonflycht (Reds, Pinks & Purples) Stanley Martinez (Rays, The World, Violent Change, Beatniks) and Kevin Walker (Dashing Sons, Legs, Michael O). Their unwieldy delivery and melancholic jangle reference bands such as The Go-Betweens and Marine Girls.
