THE DEAD CLASS

The dead class were formed Feb 2006 in a psychedelic studio in Speakerland.
Since then, we've been travelling in UK and Ireland, released 2 albums on Cuatroku Music. BOO (Oct 2006) and IT'LL DAMN NEAR KILL YOU (APR 2008). Mixing molested pop songs with punk rock, folk, ska, crack cocaine and calpol is what gives the dead class it's unique and disturbingly tasty flavour!
We do quirky songs about cannibalism, consumerism, deranged psychopaths, magic cows and more serious topics like honesty, trust, friendship, relationships, pirateships, scary girls ...blah blah blah..

The Gentle Scars

The gentle scars were formed in the autumn of 2000 and quickly gained a reputation for their lively and incendiary stage performances.
They released a number of limited edition ep`s that earned some glowing reviews throughout the british north-west punk/alternative scene and gained a sizable following.
Their reputation as an excellent punk-pop rock`n`roll outfit continues to grow and is represented in their full length debut album "reflectoporn". Beautiful,sleazy,raging punk-pop rock`n`roll. An angry cat fight between different sensibilities contained within the human and animal psyche.

The Room

There are at least two artists which use this name: 1. The Room were formed in the late 70`s by Dave Jackson and Becky Stringer (both later of Benny Profane, Dust and The Dead Cowboys) before going through various personnel changes and splitting in 1985.

Their sentiment and melodies will walk with you always. Hometown: Made originally in Liverpool but they now prowl the world." Taken from band website - "The Liverpudlian garage punk behemoths it's okay to snog during your first date" (NME)

killaflaw

Key Press "The missing link between Soundgarden and The Prodigy has materialised. Killaflaw would be equally at home at Download as they would at Creamfields. Benn has a voice that would blow a stadium away, as well as any club." Eddy Temple-Morris, Losers, Dance Rocks DJ and XFM The Remix "If only Led Zeppelin stopped ripping off blues artists and heard The Prodigy decades earlier, they'd probably sound like this... Killaflaw have been flooring jaws across their tours with a high octane set that commands you to either dance, or mosh."
