killaflaw

Key Press "The missing link between Soundgarden and The Prodigy has materialised. Killaflaw would be equally at home at Download as they would at Creamfields. Benn has a voice that would blow a stadium away, as well as any club." Eddy Temple-Morris, Losers, Dance Rocks DJ and XFM The Remix "If only Led Zeppelin stopped ripping off blues artists and heard The Prodigy decades earlier, they'd probably sound like this... Killaflaw have been flooring jaws across their tours with a high octane set that commands you to either dance, or mosh."

The Auteur

"Everything you have ever heard but a bit better and a bit more English." That's the confident claim made by Brighton's The Auteur on their thriving online community – and only a band with the songs and live show to back up such a statement could pull it off. Fortunately, the band have both - and are quickly generating a real buzz around their electro-tinged powerpop, creating waves within a scene dominated by American artists.
