They were briefly known between 2002-2004 as "Pacifier". During this time the band was attempting to break into the US market and it was decided that Shihad sounded too much like the arabic word 'jihad', thus the name change.

Stereophonics formed in 1992 in Cwmaman, Wales and was originally known as "Tragic Love Company," taking one word from each member's favourite band (The Tragically Hip, Mother Love Bone, and Bad Company). The band first consisted of Kelly Jones (vocals/guitar and songwriter), Richard Jones (bass), and Stuart Cable (drums).

Viarosa

Viarosa's second full length release "Send for the Sea" is an eleven song 'noir opera' that more deeply reveals the mystical vision of UK vocalist-songwriter Richard Neuberg and his bandmate-companions over the past six years. They are experts in roiling guitars, bittersweet viola & screaming lap steel, among the usual rock instrumentation. Viarosa's ability to express themselves in unique ways both lovely & grotesque earned them the fandom of REM, which asked them to open for the mega-band in Dublin at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin.

Potential Strangers

Potential Strangers never really seemed to be formed. They’re not really a band as such, rather a group of free musicians who meet each other and play some songs. The ‘some songs’ were all composed by the lead singer Dòl Eoin. He takes the reigns to an extent, while keeping an open mind with the songs’ direction. Buddy Holly was a heavy influence on Dòl eoin, as he grew up in probably one
of the most remote corners of the world.
