THE NEUTRINOS : "Never less than attention grabbing" (Artrocker) - "Throbbing art-punk noise and sexy urgent energy" (Time Out New York) A raucous theatrical live performance described as a showy, female Nick Cave fronting Queens Of The Stone Age with "ball busting vocals. "

BLACK HELIUM : Black Helium's heavy death pop has been described as a coming-together of doom, glitter, psychedelia and bubblegum rock... "Like a good fuck on bad acid" - this casual inter-mingling, has resulted in one sonic-metal-electronic-bastard child, borne outta the unholy and unlikely union of Slayer, Sonic Youth, The Beach Boys, and a touch of Yummy Yummy that's accumulating a steady following.
CITY LIGHTS : London's gorgeous trio of talent with a punky newer wave sound rich with influences ranging from The Rolling Stones and Blondie to The Libertines and Bloc Party. Imagine The Pipettes mentored by The Fall, managed by Motorhead, playing an underground club with Johnny Cash on the door and Tom Waits running the bar.
