Making their first venture to the capital and probably bringing a busload of their pissed mates with them, this Perth collective "wooed the crowds" at T in the Park last year with their sprawling, Beta Band-cum-Spiritualized beats'n'samples'n'drones. First track on their demo (pre-Sep 11, unfortunately named 'Arms For Afghanistan') is 14-minutes long. RESPECT. Politically-charged rantings and manifestos at www.breschnev.com. If we'd thought this through, we'd have put them on a bill with Meanwhile Back In Communist Russia. Ah well.
Three young scuzzrock, savage manic Essex boys soon to be recording with Sam Williams (who produced that wonderful first Supergrass album), receiving much label interest at the moment including EMI in New York, and have one of the most mispronounced band names in the business. They played the DiS gig at the Barfly with Crackout and Miss Black America, lest you forget. Come and watch them spit'n'strut again. Fame is inevitable. www.engerica.com
Formerly Inimenter, much loved by the metal press and having fans in Pitchshifter, The Prodigy, and One Minute Silence among others. 2002 has seen them change their name and change direction, after the departure of their drummer in December. He is now replaced by Max from Nojahoda. We feel this a very suitable rawwwghkkk! opener for our first DiS-South gig. MP3s and past press clippings and so on at www.aftersuburbia.com
