BANDS:

BLOC PARTY played Club Velocity last September, since then the London based four piece have become one of the buzz bands of 2004 so far.

Since appearing in The Face, the NME, been championed by The Times, The Independent and playing live on Radio One, they have had record companies lining up to sign them.

Radio One deejay Steve Lamacq describes them as "genius".

Bloc Party are a party band for the new generation that want to let a lot of funk punk into their lives.

NEW RHODES also played last year and have done a lot since then. They have moved from Bristol to London, their old drummer left, went on tour with Razor Light, got their first Radio One play by music legend Alan McGee on his ace Death Disco show and supported the awesome American two piece Mr Airplane Man in London.

The guitar pop band have been likened to Kings of Leon, Magazine and the Strokes.

100 BULLETS BACK The now three-piece band (formerly four) from Oxford and will be releasing their debut single for Velocity Recordings in April.

The single 'The Lost Souls Club' is nearly six minutes of pure 2004 POP! Velocity Recordings say it is the best release to date.

100 Bullets Back may have one ear on the 80's, but they manage to bring their sound right up to date. That is being 2004. Think OMD/Pet Shop Boys having a romp with bands such as The Killers or Franz Ferdinard.
