Are there any local bands you want to plug?

My nomination is DEADPAN and you can download a couple of their MP3s at: https://www.tigana.co.uk/cgi-bin/opencan/opencan.pl?request=music

Please keep it to bands you think the HOP community isn't likely to have heard before...thank you!

Totally!

Scarlet Soho - get their MP3 here!

This is my cousins' band, who I have roadied for about 20 gigs now!

Wessex Girl, they are actually based in Southampton, at the Joiners Arms in St Mary's. Perhaps you've heard of them.

They are dark electro-pop, think Mansun, Soft Cell, New Order etc. They ROCK.

Magnus... pay it forward

I honour you as an aspect of myself..

Unfortunatly they don't have any sample songs on their website .

At risk of hijacking the thread I will plug a non local band.

https://www.mindlessselfindulgence.com/

they do have a few songs for download.

Crazy songs

Aren't my usual taste in music but I like them a lot.

"Scott Baio's Army"
One of the best bands ever to cause damage to the streets of Denver.
But, unfortunately, they don't have a website, and I don't have a quick link for mp3s. So all of this is really quite pointless, I suppose. After all, you really do have to see them live to truly appreciate them, though it's not a show for the meek, those with heart problems, or phobias involving beer, punk rockers, fire, fireworks, having fireworks shot directly at you, phisical violence, or people named 'Zach the country wonder'.

Jesus helps me trick people.

Well then Mind Gap i'll plug OS1 (again) and take this opportunity to point out that Mr Gordie still owes me a live CD for my sterling work promoting them on here


Oi gordie, like the teeny Catweasel-alike says, stop munching acid and get to it......

OS1's (still under construction) website

Or you can check out a tune of theirs on the home page at Headcharge


Or download one or two of their tunes at: https://artists.mp3s.com/artists/186/os2.html



OK I've finished now.

I'm going to plug Fonda 500

They're from Hull, where I was at Uni and I've seen them play live more times that I can remember.

Unfortunately, I don't know of any sites that have downloadable music to have a listen to, so you'll just have to take my word that they're incredably good

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

A quick plug for my boys Enter the Haggis . They're a Celtic rock band out of Toronto - fantastic live performance! And of course my local favorite - Solla Saloon, an underground rockabilly group. No site yet but the first full length album is out in stores this month. Yippee!

Detroit Rock City baby!

Without further guilding the lily and with no more ado, I bid you farewell and sweet dreams...

Hey guys... This is a good idea...!

There is a band that started with a few boys from the college I live in on campus at Uni....
They're called MID-AFTERNOON and they've done heaps and won heaps in the short time they've been together...!
Check them out at the MP3 site - you can down load two of their songs 'Silhouette of Someone' and 'Moonlit' - moonlit is my personal favourite at the moment - it's about war...

Check em out and leave em a message - they'd love the feedback...!

amazing jazz band
breathtaking vocals by Katie Noonan, also of George fame,
Soulfull sax by Zac Hurren
and Guitar to dream by, played by Nick Stewart, again, of George fame.

https://www.sweetelixer.net

no songs available yet, but as they are small time (so far anyways) i'd recommend buying the album (available on the 15th of May) and supporting the artists.

total bliss

Currently on the right side up of the world.
