AMAZING! Thats all you need to know.
I first heard of Poppy And The Jezebels back in September 2006 when they performed a live session for Mark Riley's BBC 6 Music radio show.

Their debut single can currently be heard on their MySpace page.... http://www.myspace.com/poppyandthejezebels

RBRBR are a three piece electro-pop group from Edinburgh, Scotland. Their music has been favorably compared to a number of current electronic artists including Black Affair, Matthew Dear, and Cut Copy.

Nightingales are a British punk/alternative band (often mis-tagged as The Nightingales despite the majority of releases not having a 'the' and the band themselves' protests) formed in November, 1979 in Birmingham, England. Original members were Robert Lloyd (vocals) and Joe Motivator on guitar, both formerly of The Prefects, with Eamonn Duffy on bass and Paul Apperley on drums. The band, before spilting up in 1987, played more sessions on John Peel’s Radio 1 show than any other band exculding The Fall
