The Yummy Fur were a Glasgow based art-rock group who existed between 1992-99. Throughout their existence they were led by vocalist/guitarist John McKeown, with a host of collaborators and co-conspirators over the years

Since their formation in 2013, New York’s Future Punx have earned a reputation as one of the city’s most explosively exciting bands. Synergizing the most infectious sounds of post-punk, new wave, and mutant disco, the quartet coined a new genre with the title of their 2015 debut LP This Is Post-Wave. While drawing on timeless influences from DEVO, Talking Heads, and Orange Juice, the sensory overloading experience of their live performances usher in a new musical dawn. Combining mesmerizing visuals with propulsive electronic beats, scorching instrumentation, and never repeating set lists, they imagine a utopia where ravers, punks, and hippies can peacefully co-exist. Though based in Brooklyn, the origins of Future Punx date back to the DIY punk scene of Denton, Texas with former members of Wax Museums, Teenage Cool Kids, and Fergus & Geronimo. When the latter band was rendered inactive by the rapid success of Andrew Savage’s band Parquet Courts, the remaining members of Fergus & Geronimo regrouped as Future Punx. Before relocating to New York, Pickering also launched the label Dull Tools with Savage to release their own music alongside acclaimed artists such as PC Worship and Pill.

Torrey is indie-pop from SF!
