Bad Manners

Bad Manners are a English 2 Tone ska revival band. Some of Bad Manners' more notable hits include "My Girl Lollipop", "Lip Up Fatty", "Ne Ne Na Na Na Na Nu Nu", "Lorraine", "Just A Feeling", "Walking In The Sunshine", "Can Can" and "Special Brew". One of the main reasons for their notoriety was their outlandish huge-tongued and shaven-headed frontman, Buster Bloodvessel. His manic exploits got them banned from the British BBC TV chart show Top of the Pops. The band was also banned from Italian TV after Bloodvessel mooned a concert audience, after being told that the Pope was watching on TV.

The Nextmen

The Boys LiveThe Boys LiveCambridge is mainly known for its famous university, an inordinate amount of cyclists, a terrible football team, a river made for punting, a folk festival and being the home of Stephen Hawking, Clive James and Jeffrey Archer. It is not, one must admit, the first place one would look for producers of dancefloor-hardened beats. It is nevertheless, the city that gave birth to The Nextmen, also known as Brad Baloo and Dom Search.

Los Delinquentes


Ahi hay peligroAhi hay peligro Los Delinquentes were first formed in 1998 when schoolfriends Marcos del Ojo, "El Canijo", and Miguel A. Benitez, "El Migue", began to breathe in the air of their plantpots and forge the essence of the group. They looked for parsley, greeted the cave-dweller with a parasol and dreamt on park benches while watching the carparkers - the genuine Imp of the fleas. Writing songs, they started singing them in the lanes of Jerez, among pigs, donkies, poppies and stickers. Three albums and a Greatest Hits collection later, the flea-like feeling that brings us flowers has grown, making them one of the biggest, most popular live acts in Spain.

Evil Nine

Definitely EvilDefinitely EvilTom and Pat first combined skills in 1998 and were quickly identified as a quality DJ/Producer duo by Adam Freeland who signed them to his Marine Parade label. Since then each of their releases has in turn distinguished Evil Nine as innovators who refuse to blend into any scene. For them the music has to go beyond being merely 'fat'. Deriving their musical flavour from multiple influences - hip-hop, punk, electro, dancehall, post punk, garage rock, techno and krautrock just to name a few - they create an original minimalism packed with emotive ability.

Rockin 2006Babyhead Rockin 2006Babyhead are one of the United Kingdom’s fastest growing independent acts. The appeal cannot be defined by one aspect alone. It’s not just the combination of the horn section with turntable decksterity that gets any crowds attention. It’s not just the infectious nature of heavy dub bass and ska chops over a hip-hop backbeat that gets them moving. Nor is it the cutting edge lyricism delivered with unwavering tenacity that holds the attention until the encore.
