We Are Bandicoot is a Kent-based four piece formed in 2013, taking influences from Syd Arthur, Erykah Badhu, RadioHead, Jeff Buckley, Hiatus Kioyote, POND, Tame Impala, The Vryll Society, Pink Floyd. This show is a farewell performance, prior to the band re-locating to Australia, and features guest appearances from the Top Cat Collective and Tokyo Tea Room.


Born in a dark and slightly damp basement, Tokyo Tea Room combine fuzzy guitar tones, melodic bass-lines and ocean deep vocals to create a unique blend of Psych/Pop/Rock. Since the release of their debut EP 'Key Philosophy' the band have been playing gigs and festivals across the UK, and shared bills with names such as Wolf Alice, The Mystery Jets and Super Furry
Animals. They have also gained support slots for Spring King and The Moonlandingz on their UK tours.

Their latest EP 'Another Place, Another Time' was released on vinyl through Eater Island records, with singles 'Sunset Exit' and
'Auto-Phobia' attracting attention from BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Introducing amongst others.

"Tokyo Tea Room are a band worth the buzz" - Dork Magazine

"Music that makes you feel like you've departed the psychical space around you" - Impose Magazine


Top Cat Collective are a six-piece funk and hip-hop group hailing from the South East/London. Combining the insatiable grooves of George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic, with the forward thinking aesthetic of J Dilla, and Madlib, their unique concoction of hip-hop and funk is unparalleled.
