Selfish Cunt are a British rock band, part of the post-punk revival. They were formed in early 2003 by main members Martin Tomlinson and Patrick Constable. They are notorious for their highly provocative lyrics, aggressive stage shows, and brutal electronic-influenced rock. They are better known as a live act, rather than listening to their studio recordings, which are generally panned by critics.
The band started off in bars and cafes around Portland with singer-songwriter Al James performing songs as Dolorean. It picked up speed after he teamed up with Jay Clarke and the two began to perform as a duo. Al on the guitar and Jay on a student piano. The resulting work was considered album worthy. So, with the help of The Standard's Robbie Duncan on drums Dolorean cut its first album on CDR in 2000 (later re-released in 2004).
The SunS were a rock band from Singapore who made a name for themselves in the australian independent music scene when they relocated to Melbourne to live the rock'n'roll life on the East Coast.

They have had great success both in Norway and internationally and have played renowned festivals like Quart, Dour and South By Southwest
Listen to dawn’s music and you hear something quite rare. Whether it’s in her wordplay, her kaleidoscopic live shows, her soundtrack work for motion pictures, or the studio-wizardry she’s picked-up as a recording engineer, it’s clear that she’s an artist with a unique vision. The press has likened Dawn to «the grand old dames of country» and in the same breath «The Black Keys and The White Stripes» (Uncut). She’s also garnered comparisons to Cat Power and Pavement, an interesting mix that made even NPR’s David Dye wonder.
