London, UK SW2 5BZ
Agatha (from Milan, Italy) is Italy's answer to the Vivian Girls. This all woman, super energetic post-punk trio scream with the riot grrrl attitude of L7, Team Dresch and Babes in Toyland. They live for hard drinking, hard touring and harder rocking with songs expounding their hatred of high heels, the problems of being a Scorpio and those tricky 'three night stands', it is hard not to fall for this bullshit free band!
Barking based uber heavy shellac'ish noizenik three piece that stir up a crazed angular ruckus which is several orders of magnitude more interesting than many of the Math Rock clones currently hogging London stages.
What Price Wonderland
Clever midlands math rock trio melding a vibrant sound splicing together the best of Cap'n Jazz, Minutemen, and Fugazi-these tricky riffers with an expansive back catalogue of 10 releases thus far are one of the mathlete acts you need to catch in 2008!
Possibly, the only indigenous cockney still remaining in East London and is a genre hopping song smith as happy skronking out furious post-punk on a modified 6 string bass or quirky black humoured alt. folk on a raggedy acoustic. He has gigged with Chris Brokaw, The Thalia Zedek band, Swell, Mick Turner (Dirty Three) and P.W Long.
