The Frontier Psychiatrists
The Frontier Psychiatrists have been in existence (a bit) since October 2006, and properly since June 2007. They are “a kind of math-rock, stop and start, noise band” according to Lucas Jubb of Beep Magazine, “slightly left field” in the immortal words of North Halifax Grammar School Chemistry teacher Mr Crawford and “a bit like a car crash” as written by a man on the internet calling himself ‘Scubadog.’ Songs cover such wide-ranging subject matter as stumbling upon exotic objects in public toilets and the efficiency of the one-way road system in Halifax. If you like atonal melodies, jerky rhythms, rocking and/or rolling, this is the band for you!

Fishing for Bishops
The official Bishop flag was first planted into Calderdale soil in early 2009, in the cold winter ground of Blackshaw Head, and since then this five, sometimes seven, piece band has performed all over Calderdale, including Halifax, Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, as well as making forays into Kirklees at Bar 1.22. Playing a heady mix of Zorbic Ska and Foot-Stomping Klezmer, Fishing for Bishops have a unique sound and a unique attitude towards music. "It really has to come from the soul," said band member Matthew Wedge-Roberts. "When you play our music, you're not only experiencing beautiful melodies, but a whole new way of looking at the world."

From the serious and provocative Island Man, describing a Trinidadian man come to Britain in the sixties in search of work, only to find himself "tied to a foreign picket," to the plainly absurd Yechi, this band have a wide ranging repertoire which takes inspiration from Paul Simon, Big Hand and the streets of Eastern Europe and is guaranteed to make you dance along.

"An eclectic bunch,"
"They sound like a less self-conscious, more melodic version of Vampire Weekend."
