” 5/5 This is a band that truly knows and respects its musical forbears, and fuck mine there are a lot of ‘em. All in all this is an immensely enjoyable album that wears its influences on its sleeves without sound like anything but itself. I would recommend it to everyone!” - Shot in the Foot Fanzine

” 4/5 Bootscraper nail this gypsy punk thing pretty good, also adding hints of swing to the heady mix. It’s very impressive, and you’d never guess they were form Yorkshire”
- Shane Baldwin, Big Cheese

” 8/10 Bootscraper whet the appetite to get off one’s arse and raise a jug of ale at one of the band’s surely chaotic live performances. The songs are full of life, each with a story to tell. If you like a bit of substance to your music, knowingly ironic though it may be, then seek this merry bunch of scallywags out.”
- Oli Robertson, Rock Sound

“11 sensational tracks which we recommend for any party, great artwork, a debut that deserves all the attention, definitely a band to be heard ‘overseas’.” - MPTY Zine – Romanian Punkzine.

“With influences as varied as Bluegrass, Irish jigging, Eastern European gypsy, Dutch yodeling, Country yee-hawing, Parisian Café music, there’s a little something for everyone. Bootscraper have to be one of the best live performances I have encountered in a long time.” - No-Title Magazine.

DEXTER DEXTROUS & The FINGERSMITHS:

“A downright funky outfit, full of true entertainers with great songs to boot. Anyone with an ounce of rhythm in their bones will dance to every beat… So check them out now!” - Kendal Calling, July 2011

“Dexter Dextrous and the Fingersmiths are a band who fully embrace both mischief and melodrama… and have built a formidable reputation thanks to a good debut EP and infamously chaotic live shows.” - No-Title Magazine, Leeds, Feb 2012

Six-piece funk & ska band who have been causing musical across the UK. Fierce and funkified intermingling of musical styles, served with a healthy dose of enigmatic theatricality. Funk forms the core of their collective creative spirit, laced with a sonic weave of reggae & ska, old-school r’n’b and dance hall swing. Having played at numerous festivals, including Kendal Calling, Solfest and Landed.

X Ray Cat Trio:

Rockabilly Punks X Ray Cat Trio play songs about love, hate, murder, ladies who smoke and prosthetic limbs. The band have built up quite a following since they formed from the ashes of Aces & Eights and have supported the likes of The Legendary Shack Shakers & Dan Sartain to name but a few. If you like Rockabilly, then this is the band for you!

Look Yonder:

“Look Yonder is one man, a ukulele and his moustache. Short but sweet songs with crowd silencing vocals – reminiscent of Devendra Banhart but definitely different. Look Yonder is all over the Leeds scene at the moment. Personal highlight from his set has to be Arab Spring, I absolutely love it at the moment but then it’s not every day you hear something like this, (though now I’ve found it, it is)”
- Callum Lister, Leeds Acoustic

http://www.facebook.com/lookyondermusic

One man, making a big, unique sound with just a ukulele and his lungs; Look Yonder encompasses the lyrical complexity of a 1960s troubadour and haunting, soulful vocal tones evoking tales of love, hope and fantasy.

His 8 track EP is available here: http://lookyonder.bandcamp.com/
