Salford/Manchester’s The Mekkits are a rabble of childhood friends, mostly from nearby Cheshire who moved to the bright lights of the rainy city via a few years in windswept and sea-soaked Wales… Indeed The Mekkits’ music is a bit like the weather: A Kaleidesope ranging from gloriously sunshiny singalongs to tales of dark stormy seas. It’s surfy/folky pop music with a smattering of ska! Singing songs of the sea, the city, the countryside, animals, love and life...

Heralding from Guildford, Hipslinky have been developing their 'slightly off the beaten track' music for several years, scoring support slots with Feeder, Cooper Temple Clause, Vex Red, Athlete, Ocean Colour Scene, and with airplay on XFM, Scuzz TV, The Amp, Chart Show . Think Jeff Buckley vocals crossed with The Who/The Marz Volta/U2, add occasional slide guitar and weird noises and you get that perfect Hip Slinky track. With a critically acclaimed debut album and Top 40 singles already under their belt, the band are now recording their second album, due out late 2006.
Pretty much what the picture says...
