BEANS ON TOAST
“Protest songs peppered with optimism” - The Guardian
After more than 10 years in the game, Essex born songwriter Beans on Toast has become something of a cult figure. He’s written and recorded 9 albums, he’s played every bar, club, venue, pub, festival, party and honky tonk you can think of and he’s showing no signs of slowing down, he’s loved every minute of it.
He’s a hippy, a punk, a poet, a drunk, a die-hard romantic and an eternal optimist. Singing simple songs that tackle big issues. Political protest songs for the modern day, honest and open Love songs. Songs that will make you laugh, but also make you think with no holds barred honest lyrics and quick wit.
The Beans on Toast live show is an odd and unpredictable experience. A singer, storyteller and guitar player his self-deprecating quality is not something you often see, but it breaks down the barrier between musician and audience, creating a sense of equality.
His latest album “Cushty” is up there with his best, and the critics agree. Each of his albums are produced by different people in different places bringing a new flavour. We can all rest easy knowing that this December there will be a new Beans on Toast record released on Xtra Mile Recordings.
"ScreamerSongwriter is a folk-punk classic and Stoj belts it out!" - Punk Online
STÖJ SNAK is a ScreamerSongwriter from Aalborg, Denmark. Since it emerged in 2012, the one-man-band has released 4 EPs, 2 video game soundtracks and in 2016 the band dropped ts critically acclaimed debut full-length album SCREAMERSONGWRITER.
The driving force behind Stöj Snak is Niels H. Sörensen (vocals, guitars, harmonica, production and more) who also plays in the melodic hardcore band Mighty Midgets and help run the indie label 5FeetUnder Records. Musically Niels, has been shaped by the European punk scene and the creative attitude found within this community. And though Stöj Snak in some aspects is a step away from punk and the limitations of a traditional band, the political engagement, raw energy and anarchistic approach is still very visible in the Niels' songwriting.
Since releasing the debut album, the band has been expanded to a four piece and now also features washboard, drums, standing double bass, melodica and other beatable trash.
