Make-That-A-Take Records presents...
ANDREW JACKSON JIHAD (USA)
Andrew Jackson Jihad are one of the most beloved DIY punk rock bands in the world and we are delighted to be bringing these Phoenix, Arizona troops to Dundee for the first time. Mixing righteous punk rock fury with folk, alt-pop and skate-punk energy, AJJ are an engaging, intelligent and prolific band with records out on Side One Dummy, Asian Man Records, No Idea Records, Plan-It-X Records and countless 7"s and splits with the likes of Cobra Skulls, Ghost Mice and O Pioneers. One of modern US punk rock's finest exports, this should be special.
HARD GIRLS (USA)
Straight-up indie/punk rock'n'roll from San Jose, California from members of unsung heroes Shinobu and Pteradon who also moonlight as the Classics Of Love with Jesse Michaels (Operation Ivy). With records out on Asian Man Records and Jeff Rostenstock's Quote Unquote Records, Hard Girls keep fine company and deliver invigorating witty punk rock of the highest calibre.
Scotland's pop-punk heroes return to Dundee for the first time since their last annual rammy at Book Yer Ane Fest. Da Boigas come to us fresh off the road with Masked Intruder and will be spending the summer pinging around the UK and Europe. Check out "These Are Only Problems" and the rad re-issue of "How To Ruin Your Life" on Asian Man Records.
Super-melodic skyscraping dream pop/emo/indie rock bangers played by punks with deep soul and hearts on sleeves. Last year's "Despondent" album was one of the 2014s finest and is an essential Scottish indie document. Expect multi-layered harmonies, sing-a-longs and guitar pyrotechnics played at pace and passion.
