The Honk Band began in Laguna Beach in 1970. In 1972 they produced the music for a very popular film on surfing called
Formed at Edinburgh College of Art in spring 2007, Come On Gang! immediately started writing the sort of music they wanted to hear on a night out: punky guitars, driving bass, inspired sing-along lyrics and melodies that get firmly stuck spinning through your head. Their 2nd gig was a sold out slot at T on The Fringe supporting Angus & Julia Stone. The band has since shared stages with everyone from Glasvegas and White Lies, to Florence & The Machine, Noisettes, The Cribs and more.
So perfectly does Julia Krystyna Krajewska embody the Spirit of Rock that we reckon she must have been carved from purest Warsaw granite sometime in the late Cretaceous period (well, sometime in the late 1970's anyway). In fact, such is the depth of her rockularity that if she ever had to go under the knife, God forbid, we think that the surgeon would find the chords to "Purple Haze", or at the very least "Smells like Teen Spirit" tattooed throughout her gizzards like that other form of rock so popular in British culture.

During this time, her mother Janette turned the basement into a theatre, and brought in all sorts of eccentrics to rehearse and put on musical plays for the community.
For more than 30 years Anne Clark has held a unique place in contemporary music.
Combining literary, socially engaged texts with innovative and genre-breaking music, she has covered every kind of style, while at the same time maintaining her own identity on each and every recording, whether it be the samples (before sampling became a concept) and electronically treated acoustics of The Sitting Room (1982), to the ground-breaking analogue synth classics of Sleeper In Metropolis (1983) and Our Darkness (1984).

While playing the Los Angeles clubs, she enlisted veteran bassist Tal Herzberg and guitarist Jimmy Khoury. In 1993, Beth received her first tastes of victory when she appeared on Ed McMahon's Star Search, several times, displaying an astonishingly strong and raw performance that wowed the judges night after night.
