Sorry to all who were unable to get in to our Death Disco show at Notting Hill Arts Club on
Weds 14th. Capacity overflowed dramatically resulting in A&R representatives from EMI and Chrysalis amongst others left out in the cold (literally) and unable to get in.

The Others are tipped for the top twice in this Month’s Fly Magazine. Firstly by Laurence Bell - MD Domino Records (Franz Ferdinand’s label):

“It’s a very positive time for home-grown music. We’ve had two or three years of American music coming in, and we’ve got down to the second or third division bands - chancers like Electric 6. I think there’s a new generation of British kids doing their own thing. “

“The style of music is going to be about having a good time but being smarter and more cerebral - more of an art-pop scene. The whole post-punk thing will have an influence - bands like Wire and The Buzzcocks. The Archie Bronson Outfit are terrific, like The Groundhogs meets Wire. and then there’s THE OTHERS, a Brighton Band who sound like ATV.”P38

Xfm DJ John Kennnedy: “The Libertines will calm down a little an d produce their first classic album…. More sons and daughters of Albion will appear in their wake inspired and energised by their can-do approach - look out for Special Needs, The Lams, The Others, The Cherubs [and] Unstrung to name just a few.”P37.


Played three times (two different tracks) on John Kennedy’s XFM show this week.

Roll on Razorlight.
