There are at least two bands named Moxie. One is from Houston, TX, and there is another in San Diego, CA. The Moxie from Houston formed like many other bands: through a facebook courtship, a midnight Taco Cabana outing, and an STD testing session. Their music could be considered “post-funk," if such a thing existed, and their live shows are worthy of their namesake. Having just completed a national tour this summer (2007) ranging from Texas to New York to Missouri in the Funkwagen, their airport shuttle bus...
Deathline is a duo from London, UK. Members Jennie (bass guitar, vocals) and Kaoru (guitar, vocals and programming) formed the group after quitting Artrocker post-punk band Electric Shocks in late 2005. Deathline spent summer 2006 developing their sound, which is a lo-fi blend of electronic backing and harsh, garage rock style overdriven instrumentation, that was labelled "rock noir" by their supporters due to its dark and atmospheric nature.
Influenced by their punk upbringing, avant-garde schooling, and no wave surroundings in early 80s NYC,- but not beholden to any genre - Ike Yard managed to create a new sound.
By tapping into equal parts the krautrock experimentation of Can, the Neue Deutsche Welle of DAF and the UK post-punk dub of PiL and Joy Division they created sounds and songs unique enough to catch the attention of Factory Records, who made them their first American signing.
Daniel Fell is a London based musician, most known as the lead singer and one of the founding members of The Argonauts. Fell has also recorded material with The Bon Vivants and Ligers. Currently working on his debut solo album, early offerings have included the caustic acoustic Rubber Ball, the Byrdsesque Chanson and Minefield, a Paisley Park flavoured cautionary tale of repossession in modern times. Loose limbed, just the right side of funk, it typifies what’s on offer at Fell’s table.
Halls is the solo project of south London-based musician Samuel Howard. Started in early 2010, Halls combines looped electronic samples with sparse vocals, each song deeply submerged in dense reverb. http://soundcloud.com/halls
Fernando Alvaro comes from Buenos Aires, Argentina and is known as Big Head. Big Head has been DJing in South America for over 15 years and producing since 96. Initially producing an array of different musical genres, it was apparent after a while that he just could not turn his back on cutting edge house music. Call it what you will, deep prog, tech-tribal, one thing is abundantly clear; this music is quality, which ever pigeon hole you choose.
Forming in October 2009 through Access To Music, We Can't Dance exploded on to the Norwich scene with a bang. Following a stage invasion at the first gig and a large number of cd's vanishing within seconds, the band then started 2010 with a gig at the Norwich Arts Centre which ended in similar fashion. Harry Dawson (vocals, guitar) - left 2011
Josie Steward (vocals, guitar)
Tom Joy (vocals, bass)
Dom Taylor (drums)

Steeped in the heartache and boredom that can come with being heartbroken and bored Jonny Telafone's music does not fall easily into any sub-genre or scene. It's all pop music...Hit after hit
