We have rising snot pop lads FLESH on Thursday 2nd June!
“They aren’t holding back are they? (Dead Lonely) is a swaggering piece of snotty pop’” STEVE LAMACQ
“FLESH are pretty aggy & pretty brilliant” HUW STEPHENS
“Sounding like classic Manchester music” RADIO X
“Make your own mind up with these Manchester grungers – we’re on board.” DIY
“A band whose music simply oozes urchin grittiness” MANCHESTER EVENING
Fresh from a major headline tour and some big support slots with the likes of DMAs and Darlia; Snotpop’s finest quartet FLESH finished their mammoth 2015 by supporting fellow social commentators The Enemy.
From major airplay from Radio X, BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and Introducing, FLESH packed out shows across the country and received a lot of love from press from the likes of DIY, Line of Best Fit, GigSlutz, Manchester Evening News and more for the release of their first label EP
(W8 4 ME / DEAD LONELY). Flesh also took time headline the coveted This Feeling Night at Manchester’s infamous Night N Day with sterling line up including Viola Beach and Whitecliff and they also self-released single ‘Not GNA’ in the summer. A lot has happened for the lads over past few months but they aren’t slowing down one bit.
Hazza, Robbie, Cozza and Jon are currently in the process of writing and recording more of their snotty, smutty new wave Britpop and Madchester beats. So watch this space for more news to come.

Strangling Vinyl Promotions presents rising Exeter punk rockers Muncie Girls on Friday 17th June!
Born in punk shows and dive bars to three driven teenagers in 2012, Muncie Girls embodies the classic punk rock story in a modern context. Fueled by discontent and anxiety, the Exeter trio eloquently addresses modern living as a self-aware young adult. The result is an ambitious and poignant rebellion against social norms that touches on everything from politics to interpersonal relationships. Ultimately, what sets Muncie Girls apart is bassist and lead vocalist Lande Hekt´s unique perspective and its impact on her understated lyricism. Hekt´s dry, unembellished writing style is, in many ways, reminiscent of classic American literature a trait exceptionally unusual for a punk rock band from Exeter.
In support of their debut album “From Captain to Belsize” and off the back of receiving some great reviews, don’t miss one of the bands of 2016!
