----- Rocklands (1/3) last month was a packed out party at The Inn. Thanks all that shared the joy. Saturday (2/3) is another bevvy of essential new favourites at the Artful/Rocklands Party HQ... http://myspace.com/nxpromotions
THE FAR CRIES : "Wonderful music... pounding riff (Artrocker) Having
toured with Popular Workshop, Hot Chip, Semifinalists, British Sea Power and more over the last year, THE FAR CRIES have shaped into one of UK's best contenders. "With songs of this calibre, they won't be quiet for long" (Record Collector) - Audiences are being blown away by their electric electro storm on record - "The Kind of spiky pop song that dreams are made of" (Drowned In Sound) - and charismatically live on stage. "Rock n roll with a similar dynamic to The Kills, but with more of an art-school edge (Music Week) - Described as "definitely ones to watch" by Buzz, THE FAR CRIES call in at London's South East X for the second of three Newer-Wave-Mini-Fest gatherings. "They sound just as great as they look" (The Fly) Bring your best dancing shoes and glam up for a saturday night with The Far Cries while you can get this close. It's gonna be GORGEOUS
THE RANK DELUXE : "The true voice of modern Britain" (Disorder) fresh from their Lewishambles festy riot shortened set, the rock steady punk revolutionaries storm the stage this Saturday night "The rowdiest, angriest punk rock explosion in the capital" (NME) on home turf. The Rank Deluxe are set to unleash Open Source for the people, by the people, upon us, soon...
THE ALPS : Climbing the bill like determined mountaineers are Greenwich rock faces, The Alps, playing 2/3 residency shows at The Inn. Their current single Hunted is doing them big favours including a great response to invest in The Alps via [url]http://www.slicethepie.com[/url] with over £15,000 so far. Look out for news of their album's progress then!
HONEYCUBE : Psychaedelic fox fest faves with a pounding pounding rock rock beat. "Honeycube are our modern day rock band powered with the anxiety of a gumball rally." (Blue Light District)
CUTAWAYS : "Cutaways write bubbly, upbeat, infectious songs that are handmade for the radio and catchier than the common cold." (Rhythm & Booze 9/10) Sharp rock music of the alternative kind, a chapter of the tale that is Once Upon Another Time, and in a seminal form, stars at the notorious first Artful Party. "Here we have a band capable of packing more creativity and sizzling excitement into a few minutes than most acts fit into six-minute epics"
Hot Press Magazine's Pick Of The Fortnight
KIARA SCURO : Cracking! Fall instantly in love with this sensational trio of electro punk dynamo-rock upstarts as they explode on stage like dangerous magnetic whips. Don't miss! "The perfectly preened trio slam out tunes that make you listen and absorb you into the music in an almost catatonic way." (Maps Magazine). Folks are sniffing already. Yet again, you are tipped...
Probably some impromptu stage appearances as tends to happen...
Praps seeya soon
