Rui Da Silva

Rui da Silva is a Portuguese producer and DJ, whose single "Touch Me" (featuring the vocals of Cassandra Fox) topped the UK Chart in 2001. At the time, he was the only Portuguese musician to have a UK hit and hence was the first to score a UK number one. Rui started producing house music in 1992, just as club culture was getting established in Lisbon. Noticing the lack of dance music labels in Portugal, Rui teamed up with DJ Vibe to form Kaos Records, the first label in Portugal specialized in house and electronic music.

Menswe@r were a short-lived Britpop band in the mid 1990s from Camden in London. They signed their record deal after their fifth gig, appearing on the cover of Melody Maker (in an article about Camden club night Blow Up) before they had recorded a note. They were featured in a Select article about the mod revival when the project was still purely in the imaginations of Chris Gentry and Johnny Dean. Their dress sense was Mod (tight fitting suits etc) whilst their music was influenced by both Blur's second album Modern Life Is Rubbish and Elastica.

The Cripples

Keenly aware that new wave has its roots in ‘60s garage rock, the Cripples fuse proto-punk rawness with synthesized noise. Formed by Greg Heino (vocals, guitar, synthesizer) and Ross Marshall (synthesizer, vocals) in a high school basement in the mid-‘90s. Nearly a decade before resurrecting new wave sounds would be considered cool in the indie-rock world and commercial in the eyes of A&R suits, the Cripples were outcasts, gigging at small Seattle punk clubs in 1996 even though they were clearly not punk rock.
