MyChoonz is a small independent music promotion and video services company run by Simon ‘Choonzy’ Deards with the help of a small team of volunteers who’ve been involved in Cosmic Puffin since the very first one way back in 2008. We are very proud to say that Cosmic Puffin this year will be the 10th with the MyChoonz stage.

Having signed with Magick Eye Records Flutatious are now working on their 4th album with renowned producer John Mitchell at Outhouse Studios. They will be bringing some new tunes to Cosmic Puffin this year along with the old favourites. It has been said that Flutatious will have you dancing like a paper bag in a wind tunnel. With many other great festival bookings in 2016 Cosmic Puffin will be their first of the year and is always one of their favourite shows.

Formed in 2007 by Bass Druid Cosmic Andy (Space Pirates/Psychik Hatters) and Rich Eagle Web (Tarana/Humanity). On a mission to unite the Multifarious channels of their shared musical ancestry, The Spirals are broadly a spacey, heavy, psychedelic band, an unpredictable live sound, with Morcockian influences. This is largely down to improvised-progressive credentials stretching back to the squat-party jams and festies’ of Andy Frickers’ early career and the fact that Rob, Tim & Rich formed an early seminal line-up of the unique Sheffield-based improv band Tarana. A basic four-piece with many guest performers from Sheffields rich music scene getting it together at festivals, benefits, and gigs throughout the land.
NUKLI are veterans of the golden age of free festivals. A time when bands were free to experiment with long flowing improvisations, developing a sound that matched the state of mind of the audience: spaced out!
Deviant Amps are a three piece psychedelic beat combo mixing strange voodoo and hypnotic vibes. The current line-up came together toward the end of 2015. Since then they have released 2 albums (‘Strange Voodoo From Electric Salad Studio’ and ‘Deviant Amps Live At King Arthur, Glastonbury’) with a third, ‘Take Me Back To The Sky’, due to be released in spring 2017.
Spirits of the Earth formed out of the ethereal mists of time of late 2006. Their first track Spirits of the Earth led to a self-titled EP released in 2007. This led us to Eastern Haze 2007 festival. In 2008 the Maxi EP Not Coming Back was completed. We’ve notched up some great festies including Hawkfest twice, most of the Kozfests, and seven Cosmic Puffins of course, plus Sonic Rock Solstice and Tannerfest.
Third ep Rise of the Oak King arrived in 2013. 2016 sees Spirits ten years of age and still a orrible brat. We should also have another CD for you…
Tanglemist were formed in the Summer of 2012, by Julia & Andi Sowden. With the later addition of Kozmik Ken, we have been playing varied festivals and gigs since. We are currently working with a bass player and acoustic lead guitarist who we hope will debut at Cosmic Puffin to enhance the sound of our original songs. Seeya there!
Paradise 9 are a 4-piece rock band based in London and Brighton. Their music brings a chilled punchy taking inspiration from bands such as Pink Floyd, Gong, and Hawkwind – while fusing pro- and post-punk antics from the Ramones to the Clash, Wire, and Psychedelic Furs.
Dubbal play dancy jammed-out electronic music with live guitar and vocals. Formed Jan 2013 by Kev Ellis and Andy Radburn after their last band, festival faves Bubbledubble, split up. The band also feature the guitar of Alex King (Mr Mountain) and often a few of their talented musical friends. Positive vibrations and much love from Dubbal.
