The New Electrics describe themselves as "Psyche-pop, the polar opposite of the brain dead chart zombies grinning pure plastic over old Bee Gees B-sides." They are Nick Ingram (vocals/guitar), Ben Marsden (guitar/vocals), Mark Lees (bass) and Pete Dabbs (drums) who met at Birmingham Uni. New Electrics released their first single 'Beautiful Mind' in 1999 on tiny label Interior before being signed to Fruition records who gave this single a proper release. It was given single of the week by Mark and Lard on Radio 1 and earned the guys interviews/reviews in music magazines including NME and Melody Maker (RIP). They then released 'Get Together' which also had air play on Radio 1. Melody Maker even described them as 'Quite possibly the best new band in the country.' New Electrics dissapeared for about a year and a half but are now putting the finishing touches to their debut album which should hopefully be out early next year. A great band to see live with singer, Nick, having a phenominal stage presence. When asked about the New Electrics, Nick replied "We wanna entertain people and there's nothing better than making someone smile". I think this sums them up perfectly.
