Under his own name he has produced two records for the ̃scape label, Station to Station (2002) and Nocturnes, False Dawns and Breakdowns (2004) as well as releasing Strings + Feedback (2005) on Staubgold. His latest album Cue, was released in June 2007 on Kranky (Chicago, USA).
Kids Can't Fly formed in May 2006 with the intention of giving the Southampton ska-punk scene a kick. Members were brought in from many local and national bands, including Zero Consent, Schoolboy Error, Fandangle, ToupÃ©, Speaking of Losers, After Thought, The Generators, Harpoon Larsen and many others. Between the members, they already had a huge amount of stage and song-writing experience, so adapted quickly into writing new songs.
B-Key started listening to Electro and Hip Hop back in the mid 80s, getting into the Breakdance scene and competing in the competitions alongside Dylan. He was heavily into the music, and by 89-90, B-Key was going out to Raves like Biology, Energy, Raindance, Telepathy and weekly clubs like Camden Palace and Orange soon became a regular thing. In 1992 a pirate radio station called Raw FM started (which eventually became Rude FM 88.2) and B-Key got a regular set each week, which he still plays today every Sunday from 6-8pm.

Howard Paul Donald (born 28 April 1968 in Droylsden, Manchester, England) was one fifth of the hugely successful 1990s English boyband Take That. He sang lead vocals on one of the band's many number 1 singles, "Never Forget". In the 2006 ITV documentary Take That For The Record (broadcast on the 10th anniversary of the band's demise) Howard shocked his fellow band members and manager with the revelation that he had been so depressed with the split in 1996 that he had walked away from the press conference with the genuine intention of committing suicide by jumping into the River Thames.

Dubiously labeled a "Tech metal", or "Math Rock" band, Five Star Prison Cell offer a different and non-conformist approach to songwriting. Brutally heavy, Dark and forboding with the ability to switch time, pace, genre and style at the drop of a hat; Adam, Cam, Mark and Marc take great pleasure in constantly challenging themselves while at the same time serving up a dish of fresh new and always evolving ideas to their unsuspecting but ever growing fan base.
