Fields

There are at least 5 bands named Fields: 1) Fields were an Anglo-Icelandic electronic/indie band formed in London comprising Nick Peill (Vocals/Acoustic Guitar/Keyboards), Þórunn Antonía (Vocals/Keyboards/Synths), Henry Spenner (Vocals/Drums), Matty Derham (Bass Guitar) and Jamie Putnam (Electric Guitar). In early 2006 the band played their first live shows. This sparked a furious bidding war amongst UK record companies. They eventually signed a unique deal with Atlantic Records which allows them to keep releasing records through their own Black Lab Records set-up as well as Atlantic.

Bow Mods

Bow Mods are PCS (vocals) and Ne'er-Do-Well (everything else). A skewed alliance of theatrical tart and synth boffin, the duo was rudely birthed to the clanging of East London's Bow bells. Employing a relentlessly strict Bauhaus aesthetic* and a potty-mouthed schoolboy humour, their angular, outre pop is tough, utilitarian and soaked in brittle, British wit. Effortlessly distilling arch diatribe into thrilling three minute nuggets on love, loss, suffering, shagging, death and dancing, BM are defining a darkly comic oeuvre all of their own.
