The Prototypes are a French band formed in Paris, in 2003 when Stéphane Bodin and François Marché of Bosco collaborated with singer & performer Bubble Star (Isabel Le Doussal).

Printed Circuit is a pseudonym of Claire Broadley, a musician from Leeds, UK. She began making music as a solo artist in June 1999, aged 19. During the next five years, she released records on labels like Tigerbeat6, Elefant, 555 and her own label, Catmobile. Her influences are continually taken from diverse sources, most obviously from the Acorn Electron computer games of her youth, but the only real constant is her own ability to tessellate simple melodies into far more complex compositions. A forthcoming album can be pre-ordered at PledgeMusic.com.

On many occasions it sounded like Mathew was about to break down. Some members were playing on Lumber. Members:
Mathew Yeager (Vocals)
The Winter Olympics are a five-man rock band from London England and Sydney Australia.
Inspired by the DIY dignity of Dischord records, the deft funk of Daft Punk and the stadium metal standards of Def Leppard, the band marries literate lyrics to dance rock party beats and positive punk jams drawing comparisons with LCD Soundsystem, and The Hold Steady. They are noted for their entertaining live show which mixes an earnest punk intensity with a boozy barroom bonhomie that recalls Guided by Voices or the Replacements.
The Revolution is a one man project by Anton Mannov, based in Copenhagen. "The music of Anton Mannov may be inspired by the psychedelic revolution of Anton Newcombe, but the original and melodic compositions of this one man revolution is of high standard, the happy rhytm and lazy vocal reminds us how a few chords are more than enough to make excellent music." - Magick Label
