The Forestry Commission (Press Release)

London based alternative/indie rock four-piece featuring Michael Davis (vocals & guitar), Jonny Lees (guitar), Philippe Dodane (bass) and Chris Gilmer (drums), formed in 2012 largely through a frustration at the lack of UK guitar music being released. Their songs are characterised by a distinctive, up-tempo rhythm section supporting strong guitar and vocal melodies. The lyrics are just as important to the band… but it’s the tunes you’ll remember when you see them.

Special Guests.. Jordan Reyne

This all female rock band songs are stylish and powerful and their shows have electrified audiences worldwide.

JHailed by Radio New Zealand as the author of a new sound, Jordan's music is a unique blend of acoustic loops, celtic vocals, found sounds, and the stories that surround them.  It is a coming together of the organic and the synthetic  which, according to The Mix (UK) "It is hard to categorise music this original - PJ Harey springs to mind, but the style is 100% Jordans... Her vocals are astounding".

Along with 3 nominations for a Tui award (New Zealand's "Grammy" equivalent), Jordan has lent her voice to tracks on Cafe Del Mar, a funeral scene on Peter Jacksons "Lord of the Rings", featured as guest vocalist with The Strawpoeple, Zane Lowe's band Breaks Co-op, and the Eden House. She has toured the UK, Poland, Germany and New Zealand and performed at Glastonbury (UK), Wave Gothic Treffen (Germany), The New Zealand International Festival of the Arts (NZ), The Big Day Out (NZ / Aus), Frakfurt Music Messe (Germany) and Soundedit (Poland).

Her musical versatility has gained her supports for bands as diverse as Feilds of the Nephilim, White Zombie, Rome, Hansel and Gretel and the Eden House.

may just be making the most important sound of this year. ...simply stunning. A thoroughly unique work of art from start to finish... Whether by hook or crook, you MUST own this album. RATING - 5 / 5”
BBC 4 (UK)

“Their sound is stylish, powerful and certainly has a direct lineage to Girl School and Rock Goddess. In fact, there’s a strong case for saying that this quartet are the natural successors to those two bands.
Malcolm Dome (Classic Rock Magazine)

All Ages

Also featuring...
Jo Quail

Reconstruct fully layered versions of most of her material armed with her cello and fearsome control panel of loop pedals.

In an era of dumbed-down culture, fast-food, fast-fashion, fast-fame and digital everything in which music, words and images can be downloaded, consumed and then discarded in a few seconds at the click of a button, it is thrilling to discover artists such as Jo who still have a real vision that translates into a complex, intellectually and visually stimulating body of work and beautifully crafted and thought-through "products". 

The particular sound of the cello injects a touch of neo-classic (comparable to chamber music) and would be perfect as soundtrack music. But Jo Quail reveals to be much more than simply a neo-classical artist. She also literally plays with the strings of her instrument adding a touch of mystery and experiment as well.

Testimonials
“A great bipolarity lies within the music of Sulu Babylon. On one hand, yes, they are a power trio, distortion and thunderous drums ripping through their songs, yet on the other hand they’re also intensely emotional, almost to the point of mawkish sentimentality.”
Conard, C. The Big Takover
