Cyanide Pills (USA)
The Cyanide Pills started life after a few mates, who’d been in bands around the Leeds area decided to pool their resources and form the band they all really wanted to be in, this was mid 2008. They contacted Carl ‘Razorblade’ Rosamond and went into The Billiard Room studios in Leeds and a few months later demos were sent out to a few labels, including Damaged Goods Records in London, who liked what they heard and in early 2009 their debut single ‘Break It Up’ came out.
To sum it up they are a bunch of dysfunctional misfits, outsiders, people with ‘baggage’ and untrustworthy losers. But they make a great sound, so forget this biog crap and go listen to them. It’s the only thing they do well!!
After another couple of European tours they headed into The Billiard Room again and started recording their second album. ‘Up Against The Wall’ came out as a single in December 2011 and this was followed by a German 7” with another track that later appeared on the second album called ‘Johnny Thunders lived in Leeds’.
To tie in with the Cyanide Pills first appearance at the ‘Rebellion Festival’, which is held every year in Blackpool, UK another 7” came out, called ‘Where Did It Go?’ backed with the original version of ‘Lock Me Up’. 2013 saw another UK & European tour and the April release of their second album ‘Still Bored’, another 17 tracks of kick-ass, Punk Rock, New Wave, Power Pop goodies.

Frankie & The Witch Fingers (USA)
Over the course of five years and four LP’s, L.A. veterans, Frankie and the Witch Fingers, have been mutating and perfecting their high-powered rock n’ roll sound. After savagely touring the USA and Europe, this four-headed beast has shown no signs of relenting—appearing like summoned daemons and dosing crowds with cerebral party fuel.
The main attraction of Frankie and the Witch Fingers is their explosive performance. With their rowdy and visceral approach to live shows, each member brings their own devilry to induce an experience of bacchanal proportions.
Using absurd lyrical imagery—soaked in hallucination, paranoia, and lust—the band’s M.O. strikes into dark yet playful territory. This sense of radical duality is astir at every turn, in every time signature change. Airy vocal harmonies over heavily-serrated riffs. Low-key shamanic roots under vivid high-strangeness. Rambling stretches and punctuated licks. Cutting heads and kissing lips. All this revealing a stereophonic schizophrenia that has flowed throughout their body of work: an ebb & flow of flowery-poppy horror.
The band’s latest incarnation is primed to break new sonic ground, edging into the funky and preternatural. Just when you think the trip couldn’t get any weirder, Frankie and the Witch Fingers cranks up the dial, shatters the mundane, and summons new visions. The band’s 5th album ‘ZAM’ is out March 1st via NYC's Greenway Records.
