With London's Raw Power festival set to take place this weekend at The Dome in Tufnell Park, some of the team behind bringing the festival together choose their anticipated highlights from this year's line-up:
Gracie O'Bryne, Festival Coordinator, picks Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs
Choosing one band over the others from this year's Raw Power line-up is like choosing which of my children I like most. But as someone told me, I'd be lying to myself and to the readers of this article if I didn’t choose Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs. I've seen them countless times and they never disappoint in anything but Health and Safety standards. I'm willing to forgive the bare feet and water-soaked electricals for the stellar riffs and a topless man declaring 'I love you mummy'. I'll be putting down my clipboard and neglecting all responsibility for their set on Saturday night, most probably with a bottle of Buckfast in hand.

Sicilian Lay Llamas have today revealed a new video for track ‘Altair’, the third to be released from forthcoming album ‘Thuban’.
‘Thuban’ is scheduled to be released on 15th June and the album features contributions from Goat as well as The Pop Group’s Mark Stewart and Clinic. The 8-track album is the brainchild of Nicola Giunta, and involved as many of twelve different musicians yet with Nicola writing lyrics, singing, producing, mixing and recording at his home, whilst utilising new instruments from marimba to sax to kalimba to pilot this craft to dimensions unknown.
‘Altair’ is a psych-tropicalia excursion featuring lead vocals by Goatshee, one of the enigmatic singers from label mates Goat. The track centres around an addictive percussive groove and heavily fuzzed guitars that create a psychedelic pop mantra in the vein of the Brazilian band Os Mutantes.

'Thuban' is released on 15 June and the album features contributions from the aforementioned GOAT, plus The Pop Group's Mark Stewart and Clinic. The 8 track album album is the brainchild of Nicola Giunta, and involved as many of twelve different musicians yet with Nicola writing lyrics, singing, producing, mixing and recording at his home, whilst utilising new instruments from marimba to sax to kalimba to pilot this craft to dimensions unknown. The result has been a step beyond the kraut-damaged psychedelic mantras of 'Østro' into a realm seemingly without boundaries, one in which a pan-global fascination with rhythmic hypnosis and an unquenchable experimental zeal manifests hermetically-aligned revelations aplenty.
