The beatboxing flautist!
Serving up a witty, unique brand of intelligent, gritty hip hop, this Bristol trio were described as 'UK's hottest hip hop' by 24-7 Magazine and scooped up Exposure Music's 2011 Award for 'Best UK Urban Act.'
The Scribes are hotly tipped as one to watch for 2012 with their own headline tour across the UK and support slots with the likes of Annie Mac, Souls Of Mischief, MF Doom, De La Soul and Wu Tang Clan's GZA, and are steadily establishing a growing following nationwide to add to their already significant fan base, with appeal reaching far beyond traditional hip hop.

"Raw and exciting, honest and sensitive, a soulful brand of rap" Metro UK
Sheepy is the latest in a long line of Scouse songwriters with a knack for a pop song.
Hugely talented, Sheepy mixes up early Pop Will Eat Itself, Ramones, Wire and Pete Shelley.

More mysterious than Robert Smith's eyeliner bag, Bobby gets dancefloors rocking with quirky, darkside indie-pop and kohl-smudging breakbeats.

The Albert is less than two minutes walk from Brixton station and a few minutes from the Brixton Academy.
Turn left out of the tube station, take the second left down Coldharbour Lane (by the KFC), go past the Prince of Wales and it's the next pub on your left.
