Right: HAGUS is Haima & Gus stuck together. Stuck together in sharehouses, buses, airplanes & studios for the past 10 years. Both are involved in Architecture in Helsinki, and most recently co-produced and mixed Ben Browning’s debut EP/12″ release on Cutters Records.
Right: Bum Creek are rewired experimental lunatics. They’re kind’ve stupid, very funny, highly demented and great. Far right: Brite Fight is the solo project of Louise Terry (Flying Scribble). With the voice of a savvy angel, electronic beats, ukulele and digitally manipulated keyboard atmospheres stolen from outer space, Terry synthesizes pop, jazz, and electronic musical styles into her own unearthly sounds.

Right: Footy are an improvising electric-piano duo comprised of Lewis Mulvey and Paddy Gordon. Their music is often based around sparse melodic fragments and psychedelic drones. Footy are currently working on their debut album.

Right: Seth Rees‘ (Amplifier Machine, The Spheres) solo project has a wayfaring, spectral design influenced by what he calls ‘the sounds of everyday life, merging and fading in and out’.
