...are an AMAZING band from brighton. i'm championing them to everyone i know.

their homepage
their myspace, where you can stream some of their music, if my attempt on here doesn't work..

"Band Members:
lloyd wadey - vocals, guitar, bass, keys & samples, mixed with words, a purveyor of all manner of ideas to veldt.

james waterland - guitar, bass, keys & samples, well known for mixing sartorial savvy with kaleidoscopic sweeping sounds.

mike alexander - cello , keys & vocals, ostensibly a lover of both classical music and literature

Influences: John Barry, Roy Budd, Lalo Schifrin & all great 60/70s film themes, 60s psych, The Zombies, Billy Nicholls, David McWilliams, Great Singers such as Scott Walker, Elvis, Serge Gainsbourg, Francoise Hardy, Dusty Springfield to name a few, and electronica, Stockhausen, et al....anything that makes us sit up and listen

Sounds Like: Scott Walker being mugged by Portishead. Weapons supplied by Lee Hazlewood.

Record Label: Outstanding Records

Type of Label: Indie "

they're playing Dingwalls @ Lock 17, London, Mar 13 2006 7:45pm.

i'm not going to it, but would love to see them live. i have just spent the equivalent of a packet of tobacco on one of their singles on ebay (note to self: why on earth didn't i order through the website??? damn you, wine and internet access) and will use my inhalator tomorrow. (actually, this might be a dead good way of quitting smoking - spending the equivalent on music instead of fags.. )

highly recommended, hope they do well
