A Reluctant Arrow
A Reluctant Arrow is a blues rock band, with a buttery, bacon-wrapped soul. Comprised of artists who have all carved out their own grooves in the rich mahogany of the Oxford scene (including GTI alumni Claire LeMaster and Shan “Moogieman” Sriharan), the band contrasts heavy themes with electric vocals that wrap you in a warm hug of delicious crunchy goodness, whilst exhibiting a flair for shaking up some drama and murdering the mundane.
Coventry's number one glam-garage sex-and-violence dreamboats/shipwrecks, Deathsex Bloodbath wowed us with their alternativity punk panto at Get In The Box’s Christmas show, so we wanted a slice of this tongue in (butt)cheek naughtiness for ourselves. Just a list of the members’ names tells you this band is going to be capital A awesome: Sadogasm, Switchblade, Justin Appropriate, Masokiss, and Sororicide.
Self Help is a thrashy threepiece that likes to combine the upbeat, rambunctious and hooky nature of garage with the depressing reality of life. Melodically approachable, but pure punk in spirit, they promise to “play house parties/fields/your gran’s garden/Cotswold Wildlife Park /that place where Apple hides its off shore cash” – but we’re happy to have them in the classically filthy confined of the ‘Sheaf.
