On 15th December 2013 Xtra Mile Recordings and XFM Xposure will host an incredible Xmas gig at London’s Barfly venue to end the year in style. The night will feature live music from label legend Chris T-T and The Hoodrats as well as three other acts from the roster who will be revealed over the coming weeks.
Curated by XFM Xposure’s very own John Kennedy - who has tirelessly supported the label’s output for all ten years it’s been around - has cherry picked his favourite acts currently on the label whose music he’s championed all year. The night promises to be a true celebration of independent British music and one that showcases the depth of talent within the Xtra Mile stable.

Chris T-T has just released his phenomenal ninth album ‘The Bear’ receiving unanimous praise across the board.

The track was released on split 7” as part of the Xtra Mile Single Sessions the Tenth Anniversary Edition, backed by the orchestral indie rock brilliance of To Kill A King. It was the first of 4 vinyl released every Monday in October as part of our tenth anniversary celebrations. Throughout the year we’ve been up to all sorts; a take-over at 2000trees Festival, a SXSW showcase, promotions with Amazon and iTunes to offer discounts on our back catalogue and of course we re-issued our first ever releases by Million Dead and Reuben – to mark how it all began a decade ago. We also just celebrated in style with a raucous 10th birthday party with incredible sets from Chris T-T, Ben Marwood and Algiers, a presentation of gold and silver discs for Frank Turner’s England Keep My Bones and Love Ire & Song respectively and an enormous cake!
Tune into John Kennedy’s XFM Xposure Monday – Thursday from 10pm. 104.9FM
