Like all your favourite Rock 'N' Roll bands from the past but for here and now, not any fashionable year in the last century: Guitar, Bass, Drums, Vocals, Riffs, Hooks, Sweat, Blood, Sex, Drugs and Carnage! Since being escorted off site at a rather sedate local commercial radio station summer event in 2002 (their 2nd gig!), Smilex have been up and down the country playing riotous gigs with other rock and roll animals like Forward Russia...

Suede

Suede (or The London Suede in the United States, although they were often called by their original name by fans in that country) were an English rock band of the 1990s and early 2000s that helped start the Britpop musical movement. Through their several incarnations, they were able to consistently put out albums that charted well, while still holding the respect of critics. Though they never achieved great success in North America, they were considered by some to be as big in the UK in the 90s (at least in terms of popularity) as The Smiths were in the 80s, or Roxy Music in the 70s.

Lead singer and rhythm guitarist Luke Pritchard and bassist Max Rafferty formed the base of the band for a college project, and subsequently incorporated lead guitarist Hugh Harris and drummer Paul Garred. They chose a band name from the song Kooks of the 1971 David Bowie album Hunky Dory. Note: There is also a Swedish band called "Kooks", which released an album called "Too Much Is Not Enough".
