Dead or Alive is an influential new wave band from Liverpool that rose to popularity during the 1980s and gained a cult following in Japan during that time. They are best known for the hit singles "You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)" and "Brand New Lover". Before Pete Burns founded Dead Or Alive, he was involved with a Liverpool based band named Nightmares In Wax (no relation to Nightmares on Wax). The band centred around alternative music and released their only notable record, Black Leather in 1979 or 1980.
Amsterdam were formed on Merseyside in 1999 and promptly stayed there - mainly because they didn't really have any band members or any songs - but Ian Prowse had to tell his friends in the pub he had a new band going. A few gigs were played with various band line-ups and to stunning indifference, but all this changed in 2000 when the arrival of Ian's best-ever songs rescued him from the pub and they immediately won an NME competition to find the best-unsigned band of 2000. Next up the band were one of the winners at the prestigious music biz event In the City.
Through a mutual love of good music and cheap booze, Tramp Attack were formed on the cusp of the millenium in the cauldron of depravity known as 16 Earl Road. Founder member and chief songwriter Matt Barton joined forces with housemates Ian Lane (drums) and Chris Marshall (bass) along with Barry Southern (lead guitar) to make music to put a tap in the toes and a glow in the bellies of boys and girls of all ages.

Epic Liverpool / Wirral based sound collective. The Fall Of Kings (TFOK) are quickly establishing their mark on their local music scene, word is spreading and the word is Very Good! Based in and around Liverpool TFOK sound nothing like the 'scouse rock' bands that are so well known to the city. Instead they are creating a unique flavor for each song whilst hopefully building a recognisable sound all of their own.They have this to say for themselves: "we tried creating something different, something better. Then we just gave up and started playing some F***ing good tunes"
