    The Shanklin Freak Show started out as a twisted concept by founder member, Mr Strange in 2003. By 2006 they had become a full live band and began their quest for world domination. Inspired by ICP, Manson, Zombie, Cooper and a host of alternative artistes, their freaky circus rock coupled with a blistering live show made them a force to be reckoned with. Having graced the stages of Club AntiChrist, the IOW Festival, Bestival, Whitby Goth Weekend, the Underworld and opening Bizarre Magazine’s 2011 Summer Ball at Scala in London and supporting such luminaries such as Hanzel und Gretyl, Lene Lovich, Elbow, Devilish Presley, Obsessive Compulsive, The Futureheads and Eureka Machines to name but a few. The Freak Show continue to make their mark on the underground scene and dominate the world.. Massive Horse is a musical comedy duo, that have appeared out of nowhere, and are fast taking the UK by storm! Their mission is to provide a visual and musical journey in to the human psyche, and present the world with their findings. Sometimes dark, sometimes funny, often bizarre, but always MASSIVE! Having played a traffic-load of live shows in their illustrious career, Massive Horse are already touching stardom, and continue their reign as kings of “zoo-based hip hop”.. -FDX- are an original metal band, hailing from South Wales, UK. Blending together many different styles of heavy music to produce the resulting ‘-X- Metal’ genre.. a heavy but accessible, dark but soulful musical experience. Incorporating crushing guitars, precision drums and a broad vocal spectrum of melody and intensity. The all important ‘hooks’ are ever present within each song, giving the listener something that will stay with them long after the music stops. Having been compared to various other bands such as.. MachineHead, Godsmack and Megadeth..
