Since his stunning debut, Thunderstorms and Neon Signs in 1995, Wayne 'The Train' Hancock has been the undisputed king of Juke Joint Swing--that alchemist's dream of honky-tonk, western swing, blues, Texas rockabilly and big band. You won't even notice that he doesn't have a drummer. And when Wayne steps on stage, he owns it.

Always an anomaly among his country music peers, Wayne's uncompromising interpretation of the music he loves is in fact what defines him: steeped in traditional but never "retro;" bare bones but bone shaking; hardcore but with a swing. Like the comfortable crackle of a Wurlitzer 45 jukebox, Wayne is the embodiment of genuine, house rocking, hillbilly boogie.

Wayne makes music fit for any road house anywhere. With his unmistakable voice, The Train's reckless honky-tonk can move the dead. If you see him live (and he is ALWAYS touring), you'll surely work up some sweat stains on that snazzy Rayon shirt you're wearing. If you buy his records, you'll be rolling up your carpets, spreading sawdust on the hardwood, and dancing until the downstairs neighbors are banging their brooms on the ceiling. Call him a throwback if you want, Wayne just wants to ENTERTAIN you, and what's wrong with that?

Wayne's disdain for the slick swill that passes for real deal country is well known. Like he's fond of saying: "Man, I'm like a stab wound in the fabric of country music in Nashville. See that bloodstain slowly spreading? That's me."

Wayne factoid: Wayne is the only Bloodshot artist to have had their CD taken aboard a space shuttle flight (that we know of...)

Swingrowers are an accomplished four-piece band from Palermo, Sicily. They are Loredana Grimaudo ( singer, songwriter), Roberto Costa aka Pisk ( Dj, producer) , Alessio Costagliola (guitarist) , Ciro Pusateri ( saxophonist). From Jazz to hip-hop, electronica to gypsy swing their sound has been steadily evolving since their debut into a unique vintage-inspired pop. They are noted for their irreverent style, which blends the freshness of dance music, with the warm influences of swing from the 20s and 30s.With three albums out, more than 20M views on youtube, a steady string of catchy singles and a powerful live show, the band is one of the most long lived and sought after in the electro-swing and retro scene. They are signed to Freshly Squeezed - a Brighton (UK) based independent record label and music publisher.
After touring North America, Canada, Asia, Europe and Japan (including two sold out headline shows at Blue Note Tokyo) with the likes of Caravan Palace and Parov Stelar, the band is continuing to travel all around the world with their 3rd studio album"OUTSIDEIN"

The House of Red Velvet is surrealistic and euphoric performance dark art theater. You will be taken through a winding dream-like metaphor of erotic and disturbing images. Provoking your senses and confusing your mind. An experimental artistic orgy of the eccentric. A collective dream inducing all of the human emotions.

Close your eyes. Breathe deep. Allow yourself to be transported through the curtain. We are a cypher. We are a portal. We are Dada and Dali, we are black like the Dahlia. We will wake you to your fever dream, to a theatre of the surreal, where the bizarre is commonplace and the commonplace bizarre. Relax. Focus on the void. Give yourself to us. We know whats best. There is no burlesque. There is no form or function, only us crying out to the will of a dying Goddess, In an endless night. An observer with teeth. We are a body. A gyrating force in the dark pulling you into secret spaces, Populated by the damned. But only if you get too close. Come closer. Pick the flower. Taste the poison. Join us in The House of Red Velvet. (Written by Adria Lang)

Hailing from Chicago's renowned Wax Trax! Records stable of recording artists, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult have been conjuring up sonic tales of sex, blasphemy and kitschy horror since 1987. Along with label mates such as Front 242, Ministry and KMFDM, Thrill Kill Kult helped develop the industrial music genre, but they themselves continued to evolve, creating one of the most diverse repertoires in modern day music. Their sound can be described as electronic rock, heavily influenced by both disco and funk, yet touches of lounge, jazz and experimental can also be found. One of their most distinctive characteristics is the use of spoken-word samples lifted from B-movies laced throughout their songs. Since debuting, they have released 13 studio albums, and their music has been featured in a variety of films, television/cable shows and soundtracks. Their live performances sizzle with sleaze and infectious grooves. 

Thrill Kill Kult continue to release new material via their own SleazeBox Records label (sleazebox.com) and tour extensively with a rotating cast of musicians and dubious characters, however the core of the project has always been Nardiello and Daley, both on record and in the live act. To this day, TKK remain of the most innovative, experimental and controversial cult bands of their generation.

You've heard our name, you've seen our records, our t-shirts and our stickers. We're probably the favorite band of someone you know and yet maybe we're still a mystery to you. Well my friend, that's okay, you're at the right place to get to know the greatest rock-n-roll band in the world, The Supersuckers.

And the next time you see the 'Supersuckers' name, whether it's in the record store, online somewhere, or on the marquee at your local rock club, know that there's some quality, honest, ass-kicking, hard working individuals behind it all trying to make your life a little better through the "Evil Powers Of Rock-n-Roll" (and the occasional detour into the country music, of course) and we'd love nothing better than to have you there with us as! Just remember to wear clean underwear, because we're gonna rock your pants right off of you.
