Nebraska play a show that belongs on a much bigger stage. But that's the future - "Songs to illuminate : stadiums" new-noise.net - this is now, and the launch of any new club needs a great band. Since their first show helped to kick off the much touted New Cross anti-scene, they have honed their live, skills and a year ago released their first album 'The Path To The Silent Country' a year ago. Artrocker noted that it is "A Stunning debut ..." and that Nebraska are "surely destined for greatness". The fantastic reaction from fans and underground press alike has seen them become a buzz band this year, Nebraska are, and always have been, a self-funded, self-realised DIY band with an absolute dedication to music and a belief in honesty and soul over fashion and trend. This is the sound that stars make... Nebraska making a video this evening so dress up and get down. www.myspace.com/nebraskamusic
The Standards talent has taken them from high praise to gigs at Koko and even with the Stones at this year's Isle Of Wight Festival. A classic british pop band in the making. "...endearingly moody poses... the standard's tunes seize your attention... already coursing way above average" (Metro Newspaper). "brisk, 3 minute rock/pop songs, with enough influences to keep everyone happy, while not quite sounding like any of them.......if their stock pile of over 200 songs are as successful in capturing snapped moments in pop music as the ones they played tonight, the Standards should be signed immediately."

Dexy & The Hand Me Downs mix classic pop tunes of the timeless kind with an infectious country punk rock show to create something completely different, magnetic even. It's not surprising that the reaction to Dexy's songs has been nothing short of gob-smacked, so far by anybody that has found him. "Joyous...should see him rise to ascendancy" (Drowned In Sound), "Finally: a British singer-songwriter you don't need to be ashamed about" Sprawled Magazine -
