The Winchell Riots

Out of the ashes of the much-missed Fell City Girl, Oxford-based 4 piece The Winchell Riots have had a pretty explosive beginning. Their debut Oxford show sold out well in advance such was the hype, their second show at Truck Festival saw over 800 people pack into the Barn Stage to watch their set, and their third show saw the band tear apart Manchester's In The City showcase conference. Things move quickly in the world of The Winchell Riots.

Matt once played guitar in the highly acclaimed indie rock outfit Belarus, but all that's in the past. The future, as they say, is where it's at.

Motor City Shuffle

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.

Smilex

Smilex are a great Rock 'n' Roll band - plain and fucking simple. 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...
