Tipped as one of the new bands to keep a serious eye on this year, this classic rock outfit have already proved themselves worthy of sussed early attention. Magnetising a following with powerful songs and stage prescence, ttheir magnificent debut album, THE PATH TO THE SILENT COUNTRY, is making the sussed sit up and take notice. It's not just the incredible songwriting that marks them apart, their intense passion live, and the asbo-choirboy vocals of Michael Nebraska are all part of what makes music fans such staunch supporters. Nebraska have been compared favourably to The Smiths, the Manics, Afghan Whigs and more, kicked off the year with increasing media and industry attention (including a double page in Time Out magazine). They 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. ‘A stunning debut…surely destined for greatness’ (Artrocker Magazine), "They are the antidote to the current crop of off-kilter punk that is blanketing the underground music world" (Smash Music) - http://www.myspace.com/nebraskamusic


Alternative New Wave of the Joy Division kind - Deathstar Preview fuse rock and dance energy. "We love guitars, we love electronica, we love big beats" they recently told DJ Magazine. (Guitarist Rex Bowden ran a progressive house/electronica club that attracted some of the country's top DJs). This band's on stage dynamism has already incited a stage invasion or two and they find themselves being tipped by Kerrang! - "Imagine a band of glamourous future-punks playing to a crowd of aliens on a distant planet with hot replicant girls striking robotic poses amidst the flash of a strobe light in a neon-lit underworld of uber-cool cbernetic ecstacy. This sounds like the beset sex you've ever had." (Salvo Magazine)
