That’s B O M B S’ – Sarah Gaiger, The People’s Front Room

The Mouse Outfit are probably the closest thing we have to a UK hip hop super group.

The band are a full 8-piece onslaught of energy that live to entertain. Their debut album “Escape Music”, follow up album “Step Steadier” and the newly released “The Mouse Outfit – Remixed” deliver an incredible array of tunes that guarantee to light up any party and set the tone for The Mouse Outfit’s trademark smooth grooves and horn-heavy tunes.
We are super excited to have the MO crew bless our shores again. Look out for some blistering MC skills from some of the finest British MC talent. Featuring brass, and full live rhythm section, this show really is something to behold!

Little Thief – Saturday 8th July 2017
After joining forces in May 2015, these two mischief-makers started playing late into the night, armed only with a guitar, a drum kit and a passion for raw, unadulterated music, leading them into their first summer as ‘Little Thief’.
They debuted their hard-hitting two-piece rock set at Glastonbury festival, then Bestival, then brought the mischief to the streets of Paris where, on a spontaneous whirlwind mini-tour, they caused trouble playing impromptu sets on the Parisian streets, where the penniless duo made enough money for some steak, some camembert, and the fuel to get back home.
At the end of the summer they scraped together enough cash to record their first E.P capturing the summer of 2015 entitled: ’Join The Mischief’.
