Stitch-Stitch Records has been releasing some of the best of Bristol's DIY bedroom pop and experimental music since 2002. In this collaboration with Oxjam:Bath, almost the entire label roster (complete with a few extra-special guests) performed in the beautiful surroundings of the Chapel Arts Centre in Bath on Sunday 25th October 2009.

The Oxjam:Bath festival 2009 raised over ú3100 ú3800 for Oxfam! We had a really excellent day, with all the bands playing amazing sets, and a special appearance from The Lonely Ponies. This site will be updated over the coming weeks with pictures, audio and video from the event.

Bucky

Bucky

Everyone's favourite hilarious two-piece rockabilly explosion.

FrÓnšois & the Atlas Mountains

FrÓnšois & the Atlas Mountains

FrÓnšois has undergone another transformation: returning to his French home town he has created a beautiful, richly layered new album (Plaine Inondable), which he has since been re-interpreting live using a sampler.

I Know I Have No Collar

I Know I Have No Collar

Bristol's bedroom-pop superheroes. They've grown from a two-person keyboard sensation into a five-piece live band; new songs range from tuneful and quiet melodica phrases to crashing drums and squealing horns.

The Balky Mule

The Balky Mule

Sam Jone's excellent collage of offbeat pop, found sounds and glitchy electronic soundscapes was released on his debut for Fat Cat this year, The Length of the Rail.

Arctic Circle

Arctic Circle

Arctic Circle pull out all the stops (and most available instruments) to bring you a good time, and their joyful, overpopulated songs provide catchy choruses and intricate guitar lines.

Ladybird

Ladybird

Victor Crespi has made music his life, and has taken his sunny, youthful French pop as far afield as Chile, New Zealand, Morocco and the USA.

Ray Rumours

Ray Rumours

Quiet, wintry guitar and ukulele songs from the alter-ego of Ros Murray, as heard on her latest stitch-stitch album, Le Pont Suspendu.

My Two Toms

My Two Toms

My Two Toms craft non-traditional instrumental folk songs out of banjo and guitar; songs with such an instant emotive pull that they have found immediate favour with the likes of Charlie Parr and Herman Düne.
