Semaphore formed in Rome in 2003 and found their final line-up in 2004 while recording their first EP. They decided to move to London where they arrived in january 2005. By gigging a lot, they gained a faithful audience and self-released a single in october 2005.
Semaphore are fine purveyor of dark and dkres k,bepic ( but never boring ) rock and released a new EP in 2006 that can be bought in Rough Trade and at their website ( where you can find mp3s of their first EP and single ).
You can also find them at their myspace.
