[b]THE SHAKES[/b] : Catchy chorused pop with the swagger of Jagger. The buzz on The Shakes is largely due to their live show - New single I Want A Better Life is out now. The Shakes celebrate with a brace of live outings and call in at Kilburn on 3rd May.
[b]POPULAR WORKSHOP[/b] : Tune-drenched punky noise-scapes. ESSENTIAL, anti scene star favourites . "The kind of deranged, musically minded psychopaths we love to see releasing records and offending self-righteous muso twats. Brilliant stuff." (R*E*P*E*A*T)
[b]MAD STARING EYES[/b] : Alt Rock Nut-Pop. "They sound like the Virgin Radio and XFM playlists - combined by some kind of mad scientist..." NME. Punk energy, pop melodies and bitter-sweet lyrics "They make me feel unsafe and I love that! Cool, interesting and edgy music. Something's gonna go off here" (Radio 1)
[b]BLAH BLAH BLAH[/b] : THE (gig-going) people’s choice of Favourite Live Experience. Charismatic Jazz Punk Newer Wave skiffle popsters are on their mega UK/Ireland tour with Kate Nash, Frank Turner etc. A brilliant band on the (long and hard working) road to greatness. http://www.myspace.com/blahblahblahandfriends
