hehe, theres nothing more off putting for me than the words "pop punk with decks", and while I come to think of it, "Dover"!

I don't know if I'll be able to make the gig yet Lindz, but make sure you check ot the headline band that night called 'Four Day Hombre' as they supported Clarkesville/Rooney last summer and they're really good!

Is Bowfinger's album available yet?

Camouflage...they are very good...Jimmy Brewer is my secretary's son and he is an amazing guitarist....

He is a member of the National Youth Rock Orchestra and will be playing at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Saturday, including solos.....

I know nothing about guitar playing but i think he can play something like 32 notes a minute??? Something fast like that anyway!!!

lol!! 32 notesa minute is nothing! If you mean 32 notes per second then he is the fastest player in the world bar none!

Steve Vai is the fastest according to Total Guitar at 21 notes per second.

Hiding Place (though technically they've just been signed - they're on New Skids on the Block on Scuzz)

Incwell - my ex is in this band, but they're rather good, nice mix of stuff including piano-y rock :)

Desolution Yes (Pumpkins inspired)

Ah, East Kilbride is such a hotbed of talent :D

i also meant to say funyamum because they rock. hard. kinda funky, but with less hammond organ and more guitar distortion. been together 14 years, very very good and really tight live.
