Big Joanie are a black feminist punk band comprising of Chardine (drums & vocals), Estella (bass & vocals), Steph (guitar & vocals). They’re like The Ronettes filtered through 80s DIY and 90s riot grrrl, with a sprinkling of dashikis.
Based in London, UK, Big Joanie formed in the summer of 2013 and in 2014 they self-released their EP Sistah Punk. Establishing themselves amongst London’s thriving DIY punk scene they have since toured the UK supporting acts such as Downtown Boys, Shopping, The Ex and more.
After a chance meeting with Thurston Moore at one of their shows, followed by signing to his brand new record label The Daydream Library Series the following morning, Big Joanie released their debut album Sistahs in November 2018. It is an album about friendships, melancholy memories, and hope for the future.
Secret Power are – Jessica Ashman (guitar, vocals), Summer Scott (keyboard, vocals) and Peter Lam (drums). They have just announced that they will be putting out their first, self titled EP in February so watch this space!
Coventry stalwarts, Nim Chimpsky bring music that moves the head, the hips and the heart. Acerbic lyrics mingle with indie pop riffs, full-bodied chords and constantly evolving bass lines to provide the thinking person’s disco experience.
