Artrocker have likened them to Mclusky backing Jarvis Cocker. An acid-tongued wit underpinned by cool sonics with a nod towards The Birthday Party, Lou Reed, Joy Division, Sonic Youth and Suicide. Described by Nick Cave as "very very cool."
Under a kebab shop in Hove, Clearlake were born. The band have been likened to Syd Barret fronting The Smiths and My Bloody Valentine playing Randy Newman with Jason's poignant melodies and sharply observed lyrics framed by rich expressive music. Proced by Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins) with releases on Domino records.
5 piece band featured on Demo Clash and Claire Kember's show, taking their inspiration from the brit-pop era, with fantastically original songs and an enthusiasm to rival all other bands.
Exciting, visceral guitar/keyboard-driven music which lures you into those fantastic musical places. Not easy to categorise but equal measures of fun and abandon with all band members singing. Some influences include Mark E Smith, Slint, AMP with the glam stomp of The Sweet.
"Popular music for the unpopular," but making friends all the time.
coin op

Plenty of MP3's on their site.
Citizen Above Suspicion
'Industrial rock on an epic, cinematic scale' and as the 'missing link between Black Sabbath and Ennio Morricone', so I guess we are best classified as a Metal / Alternative rock band.

Caramel Jack
Three piece, come six piece come whatever-the-hell-piece, pop group. Country style electrics with story telling lyrics. Loosely affiliated to the UK's scene of "americana" bands.
The sound sits somewhere between Televison, Throwing Muses, Ride, early Hood and Fugazi, though a list does little to explain their working these influences into something of their own.
Daze One
Four-piece indie rock with popular sounds. once described as "the melodic side of teenage angst".

Dry Rise
Inspired by the Britrock movement of the mid to late 90's, Dry Rise blend ballsy guitar with mammoth rock beats, icing the cake with planet sized chorus hooks; creating a sound that is both excitingly nostalgic, yet confidently contemporary.

Slabs of guitar, keyboards and sublime vocal harmonies combining to create sonic landscapes that gnaw at your brain.
With direct influences difficult to pinpoint, Everise's music is heady, hypnotic, intense, vital, atmospheric, and very, very loud.
Everyone to the Anderson
