This jigsaw of styles makes Volcanoes one of the most exciting and innovative new bands around. The bands debut recording The Red Door EP received wide acclaim, combined with their outstanding live performances the band has already made an impressive dent in both the Sheffield and Leeds music scene.

THE VOODOO TROMBONE QUARTET are a cult band from London whose unique sound blends the flavor of old ska 45s, lounge and exotica with a wry sense of humor and a contemporary dance-floor sensibility. The result is somehow much more modern than that might imply. http://www.myspace.com/voodootrombonequartet Formed in 2004 the bands first tracks were made freely available on the internet by their creator as supposedly 'rediscovered' originals. The joke soon backfired however when the tracks became immensely popular in their own right and each one clocked up thousands of downloads.
