They have played all over the UK and have recently finished recording their new CD with the legend that is Pete Miles.

Ah well, when Strawberry Story split up, the delightful writing style of Rex and James, coupled with Paul's bass accompaniment was just dying to carry on. There were still songs to be written and people to play for, so a sprightly young Ed was recruited to be the drummer and the drum machine was flogged on eBay. The resultant fusion is "The Honda Express" named after Strawberry Story song Summer Scene. Hope you like it.
MCS have come a long way since the first acoustic guitar jam between Ian and Will February 2008; the band has grown and subsequently shrunk and has now settled in its current arrangement. The line up of MCS came about as the paths of Will (Lead Vocals/Guitar/Piano), James (Bass) and Ian (Drums) crossed through employment and the ashes of previous musical endeavours. Motor City Shuffle exists to perform a rawkus brand of Melodic Indie Pop that would fill any Indie Club Night Dance Floor. We are currently in the Studio (Rock Rooms - Oxford) recording our debut EP.

Clare and the Reasons call Brooklyn home, but after touring around the world extensively for their first two albums with Van Dyke Parks, My Brightest Diamond, and on their own, they needed a new setting – one that would make them see and hear differently. For 8 months in 2011 they lived in an apartment on Berlin’s Bergstrasse, on the western edges of what used to be the East. They got a 1968 Schwalbe moped – model KR-51 – and sped around the city at a velocity the congested New York streets would have prohibited.
One day, after his star sign promised a ‘dynamic’ afternoon, Ambrose Nock (guitar) decided it was the right time to form a band known as Apricot Rail. He was soon joined by Jack Quirk (guitar), Matthew Saville (drums) and Daniel Burt (bass). The premise of the band was simple: music based on unique guitar tunings, the use of natural harmonics, and very open ideas about other instruments, electronica and song structure.
