The Myrmidons

Basically, they are one half of Book Of Love (Ted Ottaviano & Lauren Johnson) and their newest musical soulmate, Lori Lindsay. So imagine this: take Book Of Love's happy melodies, keyboards and cutesy chimes & xylophones, add Lori's Jack-White-style, fuzzed-out guitar, and you get a pop band with an alternative twist.

Sex Gang Children

Sex Gang Children is an early group that formed in the early 1980s in Britain. They were a very dramatic band, relying on heavy bass, tribal drumming, sudden mood shifts, a woozy cabaret ready sound that influenced the rise of the later scene, and yet another in a long line of goth singers with an odd, highly dramatic voice. Although the group only released one official album, their singles and various other tracks have been packaged into numerous collections, and they remain one of the better known bands out of the early scene.

Julia

There are two (and quite possibly more) bands by the name Julia, 1) Julia was an american / band, active in the mid 1990's.
Their style resembled the frantic sound of eastcoast (more specifically DC) emo, complete with octave chords and dark, yet melodic, basslines, thundering and slow drumming and intensly emotional vocals. On many occasions it sounded like Mathew was about to break down. Some members were playing on Lumber. Members:
Mathew Yeager (Vocals)
