Bruce Foxton is a part of the English Rock and Roll establishment. A musician (born 1/9/1955 Woking, Surrey) who is most commonly recognised as the bass player in legendary bands The Jam and Stiff Little Fingers.

In The Jam, he and drummer Rick Buckler were the driving force, power and rhythm section behind singer, guitarist, and songwriter Paul Weller. Bruce's versatility is evident, taking lead vocals on David Watts (The Kinks) and News Of The World, which was one from his catalogue of own compositions. Foxtons most notable work being Smithers-Jones, done with bass/guitar/drums for the B-side of When You're Young and later reworked with strings for the Setting Sons LP.

After The Jam split in '82, Foxton pursued a solo career. He had a hit with the singleFreak and collaborated with other musicians, until he got the call from Stiff Little Fingers' Jake Burns, staying with with SLF for fifteen years, recording four albums, namely, Flags and Emblems, Get a Life, Tinderbox, and Guitar and Drum.

In 1994, Rick and Bruce collaborated on Our Story, a biography of their eventful and cherished years in The Jam. Bruce toured with Bruce Watson, Mark Brzezicki (Big Country) and Simon Townshend (The Who) in 2006 as The Casbah Club supporting The Who in the U.K and Europe promoting their new album Venustraphobia. Bruce is now touring again performing all the classic tracks he helped to create.

Russel Hastings has been working with Bruce Foxton since 2006 when Russell and Rick Buckler were touring with The Gift which was formed in 2004.  Russell has been the only front man to work with both Rick Buckler and Bruce Foxton since Paul Weller.  His passion and understanding of The Jam's history is second to none and has toured the world playing to packed houses of Jam fans for years.  Russell was also co writer on Bruce Foxton's last album "Back In The Room" which reached Number 21 in the album charts.  He also worked alongside Paul Weller in the studio in 2011.  The Jam fans have openly accepted Russell as the man that fills Paul's shoes admirably and respectfully!

Criminal Mind formed in September 2008 on the outskirts of Bristol (UK). Inspired by Black Flag, Bad Brains & The Ruts, they seek to vent social/political frustrations through their original hardcore-street-punk sound.
In 2010 and at 18 years old the band wrote and produced the ‘Debut Album’ in Josh and Jake's dining room. The band used amps that only worked when you hit them, guitars with necks that are still snapped to this day and half a real drum kit. This process, along with getting arrested during their first tour for facilitation, pushed the album release date as far back as 2012. Since then the band have refined it’s sound and worked tirelessly to write and produce 2015’s ‘Life to Defend’. Criminal Mind have played & toured alongside some big names such as The Ruts, Sham 69, The Buzzcocks, UK Subs, Cockney Rejects & many more, across the world. The band is always on the road and have much more in the pipeline. 2016  sees the band touring with Uk Subs & Anwl aswell as appearing at Rebellion Punk Festival, Northeast Calling , Northwest Calling , Midlands Calling Festivals & Skegness Alternative Festival 







Chariots is the brain child of multi instrumentalist, artist and producer "Rob Distant". Formed in 2014 the band began its journey when the first line-up was formed to give a live platform to the art and music created by Rob in his home studio in Cleethorpes u.k. The first incarnation revolved around a very psychedelic / krautrock / space rock freeform sound based on a strong ethos inspired by freak outs and happenings from the late 1960s and early 70s. Gradually the bands line-up and sound evolved and matured in to the current incarnation, a 7 piece neo psychedelia, freak beat , surf outfit consisting of Rob Distant as the chief song writer, vocalist and guitarist. Steve Jones a classically trained pianist playing organ , piano and modular synthesisers. Adam Charnock on lead guitar. Lewis Marfleet on bass. Josh Clay on drums. Paul Mathews on rhythm guitar and backing vocals and finally Ryan Tuck on tambourine and percussion. The bands visuals and sonic ethos is highly influenced by 60s beat invasion bands. Psychedelia. Krautrock /space rock and Mod culture. Bands such as early Pink Floyd. Can. Tangerine dream. The Beatles. The Rolling Stones. The 13 Floor Elevators. Dr Feelgood, The Chocolate Watch Band and Captain Beefheart , among many more are a firm staple in the life blood of Chariots. In their short time as a band they have played shows with the likes of the indie legends Cast, Space, The Bluetones, The Pigeon Detectives, Little Barrie from Primal Scream, Sterling Roswell from Spacemen 3, The Gravel tones and The Brew. They have been championed by the YouTube psych guru Captain Bee Fart and recently made the legendary American Pow magazine's best videos of 2015 list among acts such as the Brianjohnestown Massacre and Ringo Deathstar. The band are currently recording their debut album which includes original art work by the very respected Texan comic book artist and DJ Mack White.
