Les Jupes

Four kids from the middle of the North American continent making modern music for people living in the past. Debut album Modern Myths recorded with Arcade Fire/Stars/Little Scream producer Marcus Paquin. "...as epic as it is primal and as stirring as it is sad and introverted".
"...set to become one of Canada's most intriguing and complex acts."
"The swelling guitar riffs, hard drums and deep, menacing voice of Michael P Falk ensure an emotional, expressive album. An almost perfect record. One of the best debut records we’ve heard.”

The Shallow Call

Salt. Chemicals. Apathy. Subsidence. Northwich is a town notable for little, but it was here that The Shallow Call drifted out of school and into a band. Brought together through a love of The Smiths, Clash, Love, Phil Spector and a shared bemusement with life in their little home, they began to write songs about casual sex and casual violence, pithy odes to small-town syndrome rapscallions who’ve probably spilt more than you’ll ever drink. Oh, and the fact that bands don’t tend to bother writing good lyrics any more, right ?

New Adventures

There are two bands with the name "New Adventures". They are placed here in "number of plays" order; with the most popular artist first. 1. The British band - "New Adventures" - circa 2007
Friends since university, the four boys had been playing music for as long as they care to remember; as Nick puts it, "It was always the plan". Jez discovered he could handle the responsibility of the microphone when he invaded someone else's performance "and for some reason wasn't kicked off stage" and the need for a singer helped him grow into the responsibility.
