Tokyo Taboo

Tokyo Taboo blasted to earth in January 2013 with the release of Naked a four track pure pop EP. Naked was recorded with producer Adam Moseley in Los Angeles, California. Moseley’s credentials include The Cure, Transvision Vamp and Roxette to name but a few.

To promote their debut EP Tokyo Taboo booked shows all over the UK and supported JJ Rosa on the London leg of her tour at the O2 Academy. The band also flew themselves out to Los Angeles to play Whisky A Go Go and The Viper Room and performed and were interviewed live on US radio stations. The band then flew to New York to perform three support slots at CMJ Music Marathon.


The Vex

The Vex are a four-piece band from south London, known for their ridiculous commitment to gigging, and high-energy performances. Carl Barat from The Libertines recently described them ‘the best live band I’ve seen in a long time’.


Calm for the Restless

Calm for the Restless is an Alternative band from Stevenage, Herts. The bands latest EP ‘We Started A Fire’ was released November 2nd 2013. With catchy choruses and guitar driven rhythm sections, songs such as ‘Blue’ and ‘Who Are You?’ have become fan favourites in the band’s live set.



If Sonitus were a meal served at a your favourite local diner, it would be a dish of Stir Fry Jerk Chicken served on a bed of Jollof Rice with a side of Haggis dipped in Piri Piri sauce. And it tastes even better than it sounds


Mister Susan 2

London’s foremost purveyors of electroprogpunk.



dds is a band fronted by former Apartment guitarist. After a string of solo gigs, he has transformed his new project into a full band. Honest, vital and wanted for the murder of a Pat Benatar song.
