ONE OK ROCK

ONE OK ROCK is a Japanese Rock band formed in the summer of 2005. It was started by Toru with High School friends Alex and Ryota after each of them got their musical instruments. After that, Taka joined as their vocalist and they focused on performing shows in the Tokyo area. In 2006 they independently released 2 mini albums. Because of their albums sales, their participation in relatively large festivals that summer and their energetic shows in the outskirts of Tokyo, they were noticed by a foreign record company.

It's a high energy mash up of kick ass music that is fresh and unique.

The Psychogeographical Commission

From http://www.psychetecture.com The Psychogeographical Commission was formed at the start of 2008 to explore the many interfaces between the built environment and the people who inhabit it through dérive, magick and sonic experimentation.
After a great deal of time wandering the back streets of London and other large cities looking for the spirits which now dwell within them, we came to the conclusion that the psychological make-up of cities is now at odds with the populations inherent rural based mythology.

Former Cell Mates

“If Former Cell Mates were in charge of drive-time radio playlists, life would be that bit sweeter.” Rock Sound. Former Cell Mates answered their calling in the fruitless, barren wasteland that was the music scene of the new millennium. Armed with cheap guitars, premium lager and fatigued by the numerous insipid Indie bedroom dwellers, Punk rock fashionistas and pretenders to the rock and roll throne, Former Cell Mates made it their aim to put the soul back into rock ‘n' roll.
“Raucous punk-rawk … sounds great to the sober ear but to the sozzled brain, it sounds mighty.” NME
