On Little Mistake, Pete Thompson says – “This song is part fiction, part reality; it’s about a girl who – without really realising – destroys her life and relationships around her. When I wrote it, I was thinking about someone I knew back in my school days whose life took a bit of a sideways shift. All the promise she had was jeopardised by some bad life decisions. At the point she was on the road to recovery, I remember sitting in a pub with her and our friend group and her dad had to sit several tables away to keep an eye on her. Being younger we never really knew what she’d gone through in detail, wrong crowd, wrong place! I just remember thinking that it must be bad if you can’t go down the road to the pub without needing someone there to make sure you come back!”

It concurrently became the first number 1 on the genre chart to feature females on guitar, bass and drums since the charts’ inception in 1994!


True Lies

Despite sharing their name with the Arnold Schwarzenegger film, the similarities end there even though rumour has it the actor may have a copy of True Lies debut album. 

Since forming in 1987 the band has been regulars on the tour circuit across Scandinavia helping build a loyal and ever-growing fan base, frequently picking up airplay exposure at the same time. 

Described as having sharp melodies and rattling guitar riffs, True Lies have now released their fifth single Landmine taken from their new album New World Blues.

The Lunar Keys

Recorded by Billy Foster at Snap Studios and mastered by John Davis (The Killers, U2, Royal Blood) at Metropolis, the song is about someone you know that preys on your vulnerabilities and gaslights you. Someone that invokes the maniac inside of you:

Like a Maniac – caught in me. Pain said welcome back, I’ll set you free – from your anxieties.


For each of their last 4 releases, The Lunar Keys put their little money where their big mouths are – in support of good causes: ‘Silent Ricochet’ aided the arrival of 600 trees and counting (courtesy of Trees for the Future), whilst ‘Stop This’, ‘Oxygen Type’ and ‘Once’ raised money for the charities Nordoff Robbins, Oxygen and The Trussell Trust respectively.

The release of MANIAC will continue this Lunar tradition: The Steve, our guitarist, is just recovering from an all-important operation at The Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford, our hometown. In recognition of all their splendid support to The Steve and so many other patients, The Lunar Keys pledge to donate £1 for each of the first 250 reviews or airplays that MANIAC receives to the nurses at The Royal Surrey. They Rock.

Time of the Mouth

Founded by lead singer Chris Jones and original bass player James Chatfield in early 2011, Time Of The Mouth (TOTM) have been a band for a little over a decade. 

Inspired by bands such as Fall Out Boy and Four Year Strong, Chris Jones developed his own unique brand of Pop-punk mixed with Emo undertones that helped shape the modern sound of TOTM. 

Many line-up changes have occurred over the years, until singer Chris Jones met current bass player Mitch Tyler and drummer Ollie Badger through the local music scene in their hometown of Worcester. 

From the first rehearsal it was clear that the cocktail of musical influences was going to blend beautifully. 

This developed into writing their debut album “30 Seconds” due for release in January 2023. With lead singles “RIDE (Here We Go Again)” and “You’re Falling Apart Kid”. 

Time of the Mouth are an incredibly ambitious and hard working group of best friends that live to play music as often and as loud as humanly possible. 

“We’re a band that lives to play live. Big Energy. Full volume!” – Chris

Quote about the song:

“I wrote this song at a very delicate time after just going through a rough breakup. The song is very introspective and it just describes how I felt at the time. It’s one of those songs that will mean something to me for a long time and I feel that every time I sing it. It captured that moment in time perfectly and the production massively amplifies all the emotions and nuances of different emotions throughout the track” – Chris Jones.


Band members, instruments played:

Chris Jones – Lead Vocal and Guitar 
Mitch Tyler – Bass and Backing Vocals 
Ollie Badger – Drum
