Bitter Sweet Kicks are a self-described "dirty rock n' roll" band from Melbourne, Australia. Influenced by proto-punk (The Stooges) and old school rock music (New York Dolls, AC/DC), their sound is a mix of raucous rock rhythms and rollin' guitar licks. Helmed by the gravelly rasp of Jack Davies (vocals), the rest of the band is anchored by Johnny Kicks (Bass Guitar), Chris Taranto (Guitar), Brendan Charlie (Guitar) and Joe Cunliffe (Drums). http://www.myspace.com/bittersweetkicks
The Suicidal Birds are two girls ( Jessie: vocals, guitar / Chay: bass guitar, vocals) from the northern province Friesland, the Netherlands. The release of their debut album “Z-List” early 2005 on the Dutch independent label Transformed Dreams caused rave reviews in the Netherlands and UK. Airplay on Dutch alternative radio, BBC radio-one, xfm and on live webcast programme on dirty Radio by Rick Smith and Karl Hyde from Underworld, press- attention and extensive touring in the Netherlands and the UK ( more tours followed).
Sleepmakeswaves are an instrumental rock band from Sydney, Australia. Drawing influences mainly from but not limited to post-rock, the young quartet mix driving metallic bombast with textured electronics to create a sonic space where delicate melodies and thunderous climaxes peacefully co-exist. Since their formation in late 2006, sleepmakeswaves have rapidly established themselves as a promising and unique voice in their field.
Next generation DIY artist, not the pop punk Princess but the pop rock Queen. Linda Harrison is a performer, a singer-songwriter and a multi-instrumentalist. She's the girl that released her debut album and left her Edinburgh home to follow her dreams in London at just 16. With an album already under her belt, Linda immediately immersed herself into working her band, song writing, live shows, and recording.
Sun Gone Mad is the only original Neanderthal three-piece band which managed to reincarnate enough times to enlighten this sad and treacherous 21st century. Two of them came down from the heart of the Swiss Alps - the canton with the poetic name Grisons (Grey). The other one is from Yorkshire, another lyrical corner of our planet.
They started jamming on acoustic guitars and homemade percussions in the spring of 2007 and the songs they made felt like sitting by the fire with something precious in your hand.
