POLYSICS is a Japanese new wave/synth pop/punk/rock band, hailing from Tokyo. The band started in 1997, but got their big break in 1998 at a concert in Tokyo. They create high energy music, fusing conventional guitar music, with synthesized and computer generated sound to create a unique mixture of punk and electro-pop. Their song lyrics often consist of Japanese, English, or just plain gibberish. The band has been noted for their extremely energetic live performances and their wild gimmicky outfits.
The Cheapskates formed in Pembrokeshire, West Wales in 1998, and finally became a six-piece in 2000, after a few line-up changes. From the very beginning, The Cheapskates have played an uplifting blend of ska, punk and pop - lyrically sharp and witty, wh?le musically melodic, catchy and fun. The live show has always been inventive and full of humour - the band emphasising their twist on ska convention by dressing in suits cut off at the knee.
Kevin Bloody Wilson (born 1947 in Sydney, Australia) is a short, bearded comedy singer/songwriter who uses a heavy Australian accent/style with great success. Without the aid of radio or TV coverage (due to the explicit crude sexual nature of his songs and general humour), he has built up a loyal following all over the world, from Australia to the United Kingdom and beyond.

There are more than one artist who go by the name "Meow Meow." 1) Shortwave radio squeals, Beatles-esque tape loops and healthy doses of analog knob-twiddling all underscore the pure-sugar pop tones of Snow Gas Bones. Meow Meow exists somewhere between Brill Building tradition and grandpa's pre-war 78 rpms played with a broken stylus. With hypnotic visual projections, all members sharing vocal duties and swapping instruments, they've brought their kaleidoscopic live shows up the west coast, down to SXSW and soon to the UK and Japan.
Nothing is known about this excellent late sixties album's makers. A reissue is now available, so you can hear how good it is for yourself! Early Morning Rising, Slave Ship, House Of Rooms and Gray Picnic are all loaded with nice guitar and organ, even frantic (if somewhat inept) drumming on occasion. The tracks have an atmospheric, open quality and the recording is superb. This is a lost gem. The reissue has a deluxe embossed cover. It was originally issued in a plain sleeve.
