Cock Sparrer

One of the first Oi! bands, Cock Sparrer was playing loud, raw, Cockney working-class anthems as early as the first wave of British punk, although record company difficulties prevented them from issuing much material until the early '80s, when the Oi!movement was well underway. The group formed in London's East End in 1975, originally as a hard-edged pub rock combo in the vein of Dr. Feelgood. Four of the members -- vocalist Colin McFaull, guitarist Mick Beaufoy, bassist Steve Burgess, and drummer Steve Bruce -- had been schoolmates since age 11...

Maths

From the Holy Roar Records site - "With a serious lack of passionate, visceral, TUNEFUL, real screamo in this country, along come Maths. That such a wall of epic, dense, well-written rock can come from such a young entity consisting of just drums, guitar, bass and vocal is incredible. They also possess one of the countrys best young drummers in our opinion. Think of bands such as Saetia, City of Caterpillar, Orchid and Jeromes Dream and you are close, but this has infinitely more appeal."

Teddy Thompson

Teddy Thompson was born in London, England in 1976 and is the son of Linda Thompson and Richard Thompson (Richard & Linda Thompson), and the brother of singer Kamila Thompson. Teddy's style is difficult to categorize, because his influences are varied. Growing up around folk music, he listened to a musical gamut that covered Hank Williams, Jimi Hendrix, Sam Cooke and gospel. As he fell in with other musical progeny, most notably close friend Rufus Wainwright, his sound developed into his own combination of country/western, rock, and his father's folk-rock.
