Bad Science was created in Bristol and is now a five-piece band based in Brighton. They mix the deep bass and spacious soundscapes of dub, get-up-and-dance of funk and the bumping grooves and conscious lyrical gymnastics of hip hop. You'll find them online at http://www.myspace.com/badscience

Andi Neate has been described as “angel-voiced” and “street tough” and compared with Suzanne Vega, Ani Difranco and the Cranberries. Her appearance is a mixture of confidence and vulnerability - from the trademark tattoos writhing round her right arm to the tumbling mass of dark hair to her sometimes stocking soles when performing. Her childhood on a remote west coast island encouraged her natural affinity with nature, and the strong sense of independence which led her to building her own house – brick by brick - and which has taken her and her music to far corners of the world.
