When you think of Daddysmilk, consider them as equals to MCR and PATD. Hailing from Manchester, UK by way of Norway, the band churns out fantastically cheeky rock with a theatrical sweep. There’s plenty of dissonance and distortion – guitars careen herky jerky to the raucous stomp of drums. Singer Kris Zeigler teases, mocks and croons like a rakish pied piper, beckoning listeners to follow him through his tales and character sketches. Surrender now, and you’ll find yourself doing anything for Daddysmilk’s deliciously melodic rock drama. (But you won’t do that.)"

THE MADDING CROWD
The Madding Crowd are the germination of an idea that was had around March 2009, but haven't really come into fruition until very recently. We are from the Manchester/Oldham area and we strive to make music that stands out from the crowd by being articulate, thought-provoking and aurally different from the current flock. It is our opinion that the world of music has become a stale and sad place, governed by money and careerism (as most things are nowadays), a place in which no one is any longer willing to take risks and make people think about life and it's comings and goings, for fear of seeming unappealing to a record buying public who are largely indifferent to music, and see it as a resource akin in it's limitless capacity to tap water. Of course it is not, and that is why people need to be alerted to music again by a band who dare to be different.

Illusion are a Manchester based rock band, we are all teenagers who attend a local high school. We formed in 2009 for a school competition and, after realising how well we worked together, decided to continue playing together. Our music is heavily influenced by the wide range of genres we all enjoy; between us we listen to everything from jazz to rock and classical to folk. Despite our young age, the music we make is very polished and we all have lots of musical experience playing a variety of different instruments
