So new year, new website and blog. Nice simple new design I cooked up the other evening. I’ve wanted to just get a simple gallery in place on the main site for a while – no frills just images and Voilá!

Spy Catcher (http://www.myspace.com/spycatchers)

Spy Catcher, just three months old and already sounding like a prospect. These boys have form – frontman Steve Sears was formerly in Cry For Silence and bassist Stuart Gili-Ross is better known for his day job in Gallows – so it’s little wonder they sound sharp and sussed already… combining the low end swagger of QOTSA with the tunefulness of Rival Schools. Go see. Now.”
Paul Brannigan – KERRANG! Magazine

Thee Single Spy (http://www.myspace.com/theesinglespy)
“Thee Single Spy layer rich, melodic baroque-indie lushness over intricate lyrical creations.”
AAT MAGAZINE

The Cellar Door Sound (http://www.myspace.com/thecellardoorsound)

“The Cellar Door Sound … In the shape of 20 year old Daniel Cross and various collaborators inhabit a world of their own. Echoing; the vocal intensity of Robert Smith, the musical simplicity of Tyrannosaurus Rex, and the lyrical honesty of Syd Barrett. Recent BBC London Calling artist of the week they have been described as “more black treacle than pop by numbers”. ” – BBC, London Calling

Oddyssey ( Formerly Rosie Oddie and The Odd Squad)
