Coming from an ex-knocking shop located somewhere in the heart of London, Mechanical Cabaret is centered around the music, lyrics and voice of Roi Robertson, together with Stephen J. Bellamy.
Mechanical Cabaret combine their edgy, sometimes atmospheric, but often downright filthy synthesizer experiments with a plethora of sampled found-sound, off-kilter melodies and a spiky electronic pulse with a post-industrial punk energy – all coupled with Roi’s deadpan baritone and sardonic lyrics and delivered with a healthy dose of typically British dark humour.
Roi has been provoking audiences around Europe for 17 years at headline shows & club gigs, where he really comes into his own as a dynamic, energetic frontman, and they’ve also supported the likes of such musical luminaries as Fad Gadget, Karl Bartos of Kraftwerk, Nitzer Ebb, Suicide, DAF, The Damned, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Frontline Assembly, Sheep On Drugs, A Flock Of Seagulls, T’Pau, Client, T.Raumschmiere, Mesh, Covenant, Alien Sex Fiend, Clan Of Xymox, Apoptygma Berserk and VNV Nation.
With the release of their new album Ortonesque in Oct 2016 they’ve now released 7 albums and many singles and EPs to date, having worked with several record labels along the way, and the duo are currently signed to Wax Trax! 2 in Chicago

Jan Doyle Band
Hailing from Doncaster Jan Doyle Band have been indulging in live performance for just over 5 years, evolving and appropriating along the way. Stylistically hovering around the darker side of music but refusing to be truly pigeonholed these flamboyant performers cover ground from minimal synth through punk, industrial and synthpop.
Live sets vary from show to show to avoid boredom kicking in for band and audience alike, living by the mantra of be either terrible or amazing but don’t be boring.

The Black Riders Cult
This drum machine driven industrial rock n roll groove machine of an outfit is quite unafraid to wear its influences upon its sleeve. But when you’re influences are the likes of The Sisters of Mercy and Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, why hide? Sunglasses after dark and smoke, it’s what you really need.
