The Surs

De in 2008 opgerichte band The Surs timmert al een paar jaar aan de weg. Demo Square On wordt in 2009 al goed ontvangen en in dat jaar wint de band ook de HU Popprijs. Inmiddels heeft de band een behoorlijke livereputatie opgebouwd en wordt op 18 februari 2011 debuutalbum Persona aan het publiek gepresenteerd. Kernwoorden: gecontroleerde chaos, interessante songstructuren, strakke ritmes en psychedelische uitspattingen. De inhoud staat centraal, maar zeker niet ten koste van de liedjes. Deze band is klaar voor de volgende stap.

There are at least six artists/bands named "Saboteur": 1)
Saboteur harkens back to a day in the not too distant past when lyrical intelligence and musical proficiency was not the exception in punk rock. They blend the existing facets of their other musical projects with tough guy pop punk and socio-political lyrics. The songs are loud, well crafted and instantly quotable. Influences range from Gang of Four to Rocket From the Crypt, and they're recommended if you like those bands as well as The Clash, Alkaline Trio and Queens of the Stone Age.

There is more than one artist with this name: 1) June (Mark Sutor, Tim Brennan, Mark Palacz, and AJ Brown) was basically started as a joke, and then realized that they had a pretty good thing going. After recording an early four-song demo and playing around the local Chicago scene and effectively building a loyal following, this joke began to catch on. The band independently released The June EP in mid-summer of 2004. Soon after, the band signed with Chicago's Victory Records.

4 bands exist under the name Must. 1)Must started when Australian-born Dave Ireland moved to London and met wandering drummer Reuben Alexander. Ireland convinced Alexander to work with him at a club one night, which resulted in a three-day party that ended with the two musicians jamming. They auditioned countless bassists until finally German transplant Kai Lemke filled the spot. They gigged around London and were met enthusiastically by rock fans, although the dominant dance scene in the town often overshadowed their efforts.
