"We could go to Deptford..."


“The Rocks.. quite simply, rock” NME. "Think The Clash being eaten by lions. Brilliant." (Rocksound). A return to South East London for The Rocks who played their seminal shows at The Paradise Bar (rip), helping to earn it the "CBGBs of SE14" tag. They appeared on Angular Records' compilation, then won acclaim with some storming singles, and what Music Week described as an "explosive debut album"; Asking For Trouble, which had critics foaming superlatives. They DELIVER live, ideal for a party! As one promoter noted "No other band at the moment has their sense of theatre, their musicianship and vomits it out in the general air of chaos they conjure around them... a gig by The Rocks is no mere gig, it's a show, it's an event, it's an experience."
“The Rocks - we love them. If there's a more entertaining band anywhere in the world I haven't seen them” ARTROCKER

Darlings of the anti-scene circuit, Blah Blah Blah are quite possibly one of the hardest working bands on the circuit. Their instant skiffle punk tunes, sharply observed lyrics and audience captivating live show make them one of the UK's great cults already, and deserving greater attention. Coming soon, with the reputation they've earned, and word of mouth is that they are "the most fun you can have with your clothes on."

Dandy power pop quartet from the dark side, that launched their Mental Notes (Part One) album, and therefore themselves, in December, then bring down Xfm text vote system with requests for the single 'Somethings Not Right'. They started this year tipped in Time Out Magazine, then a week later found themselves reviewed as a possible next thing in London Lite. It's early days yet, but a set full of potential hits is winning them the seeds of a fervent following. New singe 'Second Time' in March with Part Two of Mental Notes to follow in Spring.

Word is out ! Media from Europe and USA want to know who is this honey voiced solo (twisted alt pop, glam rock anti folk?) phenomenom who, in his short career of less than a year has found himself on the same bill as Bob Dylan! Also with The Spinto Band who all requested copies of his CD. Dexy releases a debut single 'Waiting For an Accident' (ltd 7") on 19 Feb (split with Seymour Patrick (Miss Black America) then plays his first UK tour. He has managed to affect audiences with only a guitar and a voice, twinning instant melodies with lyrics that are both bitter and loving, broken and joyous.
