London record label Trashmouth Records, who famously brought out Champagne Holocaust by The Fat White Family, bring four exciting acts to The Shipping Forecast on November 5.

The evening starts with a set by Chupa Cabra, a fitting start to a brilliant evening. The North Wales psych-punks’ first single ‘My Girl’ sold out at Rough Trade when it was released and they have found airplay on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 Music, BBC Radio Wales, BBC Introducing Merseyside, Radio X and radio stations across the world.

New comers Madonnatron are hotly tipped for great things, with a live session being broadcast by Mark Riley on September 26. Supporting Moonlandingz on tour from next week, the band bring their unique sound to Liverpool for the first time.

Following their excellent Liverpool debut at Sound City, Pit Ponies bring their Upminster soul to the city for a second time this year. Following the release of their first album ‘Magnificent Second Occupation’ last year, the band have gone from strength to strength.

Touted as the favourite band of Lias Kaci Saoudi of Fat White Family, Meatraffle bring their jazz infused mayhem to town. With a highly acclaimed album release, ‘Hi-Fi Classics’, released last November Meatraffle have appeared at venues as diverse as The Windmill in Brixton, The Green Man Festival and The National Portrait Gallery.
