Liverpoolâ€™s HOT CLUB DE PARIS are creating quite a storm, and itâ€™s little wonder with their angular tunes and harmonic melodies they are literally bursting at the seems with invention. They recently played a session for John Kennedy at XFM and have been favourably compared to the Futureheads. Catch them in a small venue before itâ€™s too late!
DRINK ME are fast earning a reputation as one of Londonâ€™s most dynamic, innovative and exciting live bands, riding the Permanent Wave with influences as diverse as 80s electronica, 70s punk and ska and 90s Britpop. The band formed when guitarist / singer Julian (Whitey, Siobhan Fahey) and bassist / vocalist Ru began writing tracks together, melding their individual tastes into a tapestry of polished melodies and biting lyrics.
â€œGreat rock and roll musicâ€? â€“ Alan McGee, Radio 1
â€œAll the quirky romance of a post-Britpop trio who know their way round a tuneâ€? â€“ Steve Lamacq, Radio 1
Brightonâ€™s THE BLACK TULIPS are quite simply fantastic: dirty, dark, twisted, and glamorous. The Female fronted Tulips devoured all before them with their insatiable first EP, and they now return to the Capital to captivate, and destroy.
â€œunconventional, literate and visually appealing... raw, brash English assaultâ€¦ electrifyingly close to the bone, like Siouxsie encountering the Slits on the set of Rocky Horrorâ€¦ frenetic but utterly tunefulâ€¦ hugely impressiveâ€? GIGWISE
â€œThe Black Tulips have come to steal your soul, make you fall in love and then destroy youâ€¦ filthy and twisted and out of controlâ€¦ inherently glorious.â€? DIS
My First Radio combine the fragile atmospherics of Engineers, Mogwai and Redjetson with the mashed up effects pedal punk of Bloc Party and add the vocal kick in the nuts of Six By Seven and latter day Primal Scream. Shoegazing with size twelves.
London based 4 piece SOB DOLLIES harness a wide ranging influences (from Captain Beefheart and Hendrix, through to Crass, Siouxsie Sioux, Kate Bush & PJ Harvey.)
â€œOne of the best unsigned bands I have seen in a long timeâ€¦A singer reminiscent of PJ Harvey; with a sharp eye for a lyric, and a crazed (and very entertaining!) dance. Her quirky vocal theatrics reflected the milder (and to me, 'better') side of Bjork. Add to this angular guitar reminiscent of Nick Zinner (YYYs) and songs that not only packed in memorable hooks but would also throw you with unexpected breakdowns and changes of paceâ€™ GOD IS IN THE TV ZINE
