Greg Ashley
Along with fronting the Gris Gris and operating the Creamery recording studio, singer, songwriter, and guitarist Greg Ashley also performs as a solo artist, concentrating on the delicately trippy psych-folk that occasionally makes its way into his band's louder, more unpredictable music. Late in 2003, Birdman released his debut album, Medicine Fuck Dream, which drew comparisons to Mayo Thompson and Roky Erickson. Ashley's second solo album, Painted Garden, arrived early in 2007, and though it had considerably cleaner production than his debut, it shared the same free-flowing songwriting and surreal lyrics. In 2010 he dropped the completely experimental Requiem Mass & Other Experiments on Birdman. The opening title track (a whole side of a conventional LP) is the preeminent work here, while the rest features a series of smaller musical and sonic adventures. In 2014, Ashley returned with his first album for Trouble in Mind, the comparatively modest and low-key set Another Generation of Slaves. Trouble in Mind also released Ashley's 2017 effort Pictures of Saint Paul Street, a melodic, low-key, and often personal set of songs.

Mass Datura
Mass Datura’s debut album was released in 2017 on All Types of Slime along with a performance at Liverpool Psych Fest and remixes by Tom Furse (The Horrors). The band have played with some very exciting bands around the country including L.A. Witch, The Black Angels, A Place to Bury Strangers, Holy Drug Couple, Dark Horses and Black Mountain. They were last in Leeds in September when they played with White Manna.

Dorian
Dorian is back after the split of The Long Blondes. This time armed with a 1970s drum machine and a cheap synth, reminiscent of Suicide and still mining the sleazy sexual side that The Long Blondes did so well.
