The chat section seems a bit dead tonight so here's my attempt at making it more interesting. I know we have a music section, but I thought a local music section would be a good idea so we can have a listen to recommended artists and go to gigs and sets, or just listen to and talk about some mint bands that weren't really well known but were amazing.

 

Heres my input into it.

 

Obi Got Ludo : http://www.myspace.com/obigotludo

Moleck:  http://www.myspace.com/moleckband

The Pilots: http://www.myspace.com/thepilotsband

Ever Since the Lake Caught Fire: http://www.myspace.com/lakecaughtfire

Kids of 87: http://www.myspace.com/kidsof87

Baskin's Wish (Weezertron's band): http://www.myspace.com/baskinswish  :pow:

Fire to the Works(Me obviously): http://myspace.com/fireworkdisplay :pow:

Vegas Baby: http://www.myspace.com/vegasbabyuk

Little Comets: http://www.myspace.com/isupportlittlecomets

Moira Stewart: http://www.myspace.com/moirastewartmusic

"It's strange they haven't been snapped up by now. Perhaps it's because there's more traditional bite here than Fututeheads or Maximo, with a steely Rival Schools edge to offset the ruddy big pop vocal. It's a beguiling combination of melody and power than, if too unsettling for the mainstream, makes them cult heroes, 8/10"

Planet Sound's John Earls

 

"Styles Make Fights are a great band, they wouldn't be on my podcast if they weren't. They have the emotional edge to their music that grabs me straight off, but they do something a bit different and interesting with it. I like that it's slightly jerky, but not uncomfortably so and there's something about the basic guitar hook that just clicks in my belly when I hear it".

Marsha Shandur, XFM

 

"Styles Make Fights have developed a knack for sharply-executed pop. They illustrated this flawlessly tonight, knocking out a stream of punchy three-minute songs in their light-speed half-hour set. What sticks in the mind most about tonight’s performance is the consistent strength of the songs. There wasn’t a wasted note or word in the whole set. After a handful of gigs, Styles Make Fights are already in an enviable position. They are building on strong foundations for the future, matching the potency of their songs with the energy-rush of their live set. If they can just keep their momentum going, I expect we’ll be hearing plenty more from them".

Ahhh I'm grilling my lass about this and we can't remember.  We saw this band at the Bridge Hotel about 3 years ago that looked like a bunch of misfits and sounded like a cross between Sigur Ros and Daft Punk.  They were ridiculously good.  I listened to their MySpace and all that at the time, just can't remember their name.

I think they had this daft name that sounded foreign or made-up, like Asobi Seksu but obviously not Asobi Seksu.  Fuck's sake. 

 

Cheers fttw, this is my punishment for encouraging you to go mad in that megathread thing.

So pleased to see there's loads of stuff up there, anyway. Is there a lot in terms of local gigs, then? I'm desperate to get into a band once i get up there - absolutely desperate. I was in a band for about six months and it was the best fun ever, and we didn't even play any sort of gig - bar a shitty thing at a poxy little pub.
