The Joe Strummer Foundation

7:00pm - 7:30pm (Saturday)

Formed in the later hours of 2016 & through the haze of party popper in the early hours of 2017, Ryan Smith took his solo project, from bedroom to stage in what feels like an instant.

Creating the fully fledged band we know today BDRMM, formed with brother Jordan Smith and good friends Danny Holtz, Aaron Moreton & Joe Vickers, this 5-piece have rapidly injecting a much-needed burst of summer freshnessinto the Hull music scene, sounding like the perfect cocktail of indie-groovers Homeshake, jangly slackers DIIV and otherworldly shoe-gazers Slowdive.

This troop have been honing their sound to epic proportions ever since. With early release Crike recorded on frontman Ryan’s phone showing early signs of what was to come, this dreamy bunch followed it up with their first release as a 5-piece, Yucky, which hit airwaves on 7th August and after picking up radio play from BBC Radio 1 & Amazing Radio, the boys played to a capacity Tramlines show at Bungalow and Bears and have already played with the likes of Her's, Trudy & the Romance,FEHM & Horsey and released their latest single ‘Kare’ which has had rave reviews.

Their music moves at a dreamy pace, but BDRMM’s reputation is growing at a rate that’s both alarming and satisfying.
