The TOKKO collective describe the bands thus…
oMMM: “oMMM (aka Edmund Davie) combines rough 4 track recordings, broken/cheap/obsolete musical instruments with digital production skills. His lo-fi indie harmonies have drawn comparisons to the likes of Mouse On Mars, space-organist Dick Hyman and The Yummy Fur.”
Sticks: “The Sticks are a stripped down garage party band from
Brighton. They bash drums, sway on the bass and claw at guitar -
often swapping over instruments between songs live - and yelp with
melodic abandon and delight. With cheap, unreliable equipment they
manage to tease out a cacophony of crashing drums and raucous guitar
