THE BRACKISH are an audacious assembly of guitarists Luke Cawthra (Phantom Limb) and Neil Smith (This Is The Kit), drummer Matt Jones (Zun Zun Egui) and Port Erin bassist, Jacob Tyghe. Since their 2016 album, Liquid Of Choice, the band gained a reputation for awe-inspiring live shows across the European and UK art rock scene. With a third album underway, THE BRACKISH are storming the stage again.

// Manu Loius //
Manu Louis is Belgian, lives in Berlin and escapes from winter in Spain. He travels with a village of electronic instruments and video projections from pop stars or animals to deliver passionate performances that eventually switches gears into an impromptu discotheque that gets the audience moving.
His music mixes high and low culture to create provocative and decontextualized juxtapositions. His general blueprint remains the same throughout all of his efforts, but the ingredients he uses may vary: from dissident chanson française, genial dilettante, avant-garde composer, new beat, old hit, art-pop & hard bop.
Cream Parade, his new album is a disoriented walk led by synthetizers. It will be released in May 2019 on Igloo Records and will follow Kermesse Machine (2017) his first album. The last two years he performed at over 200 festivals and clubs across Europe and Asia.
Apart from his solitary activities, the last years Manu also has composed music for the 30 piece ensemble Orchestra Vivo, L’Orchestre de chamber Liège, Plastic Fanfare (a group of 200winds & percussions), Spanish artist Escif and chinese band Dawanggang..
