I, Ludicrous have possibly been "the most original band in the world" since they formed in 1986. The band achieved immortality in 1987 when their seminal flexi release "Preposterous Tales" reached the dizzy heights of number 11 in John Peel's Festive 50. This was followed up by the debut album It's Like Everything Else which also found its way into the top ten of the indie charts. Several releases have followed over the years and in 2007 majot label recognition was won when a retrospective of the band 20 years in showbusiness was released on Sanctuary Records. In February 2008 the 5 track cd "Dirty Washing" was released to rave reviews. A tour with The Fall was arranged to promote the CD. In 2008 the band finally expanded the line up to a 3 piece when long time friend & fan Martin Brett joined the band on bass guitar. The bands latest single release "WE'RE THE SUPPORT BAND" has received rave reviews & worldwide radio airplay. Procter, Hung & Brett plan to carry on releasing new material forever & are particularly looking foward to releasing regular singles from the comfort of their nursing home in 25 years time.
This all girl six piece play the songs of the Monks in a way that makes you want to shout “IT’S NUNS TIME!”
THE GOOD GODS
Tightly knit three piece that evoke early Talking Heads.
“Tom Hatred’s voice at times nears pitch-perfection, fluttering comfortably between a very British bass and a New York hipster falsetto, and is full of passionate personality that encourages you to take note of his every word.” – You Like We Like
THE KOOLER KINGS
The Kooler Kings are a young new band from South West London. When the band played their first gig at The Watershed in Wimbledon, DJ John Kennedy saw them & immediately played them on his XFM radio show. The band were recently interviewed & filmed playing live for a docu-movie about the Reading festival due out on TV & Cinema in the next few months.
