Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation

Rocket Recordings prepare to celebrate their twentieth birthday with a weekend of musical treats and Getintothis’ Rick Leach has all the details.  

Rocket Recordings turn 20 next year and to celebrate they are putting on a special weekend event at The Garage in London.

The innovative Bristol/London label have consistently pushed musical barriers for nearly the last two decades, unafraid of taking on artists from the leftfield and rarely, if ever, putting a foot wrong.

There’s a top-notch line up of bands playing over their weekend event and it’s certainly something to get excited about.

Alongside the likes of Sweden’s Goat, Salford’s Gnod, Josefin Öhrn, Gothenburg’s Hills, Hey Colossus, the ever-intense Teeth of the Sea, Temple Ov BBV, Julie’s Haircut, Housewives.

Not forgetting the disco/doom merchants Flowers Must Die, the sheer chaos that is Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs as well as Gum Takes Tooth, there’s also the promise of Russian pysch groovers Gnoomes plus Kuro,  Mamuthones, Negra Branca,  Dwellings, AHRKH, Ayn Sof, Coldnose and Mike Bourne.

Rocket Recordings are also lining up a couple more bands to the bill as well as DJ’s to round things off neatly.

Getintothis’ review of Psych Fest 2017: a brutal bombardment of the senses

With many of the artists having close links with Liverpool through appearances at Pysch Fest and a barnstorming performance by Josefin Öhrn at Liverpool Central Library in February this year, a weekend trip to London in Spring 2018 seems nigh on essential.

Rocket Recordings Twenty  takes place at The Garage, London March 9-11, 2018.
