Deadloss Superstar

www.deadlosssuperstar.co.uk

www.myspace.com/deadlosssuperstar

The three founding members of Deadloss Superstar met at school and in the grand tradition were united though a shared love of rock music. After stealing a hardcore/punk-influenced rhythm section, they set about melding their sound from an exhaustive list of influences including Guns N' Roses, Queens Of The Stoneage, Muse, Alice In Chains, Black Flag, Deftones, New York Dolls and Iggy Pop.

What they have arrived at may best be described as stoner-punk'. Normally drenched in distorted guitars, but surprisingly melodic, their songs range from frenetic punky thrashers to majestic slow-burning epics. The memorably enthusiastic live show comes with passion, energy and a firm commitment to entertainment. But not, we should make clear, in the manner of tribute acts such as The Darkness: this is an altogether more sinister affair, with themes of murderous love, drug-fuelled insomnia, and the end of the world. They've been playing together for almost three years now, and it's safe to say they mean it.

They have often been described as sleazy. Musically speaking, of course.

De Rosa are a band haunted by the ghosts of industry. Since September 2003 we have been constructing pop for Gargleblast Records (co-founded by producer Andy Miller - Arab Strap, Mogwai, Sons & Daughters, Delgados, Scout Niblett, Songs:Ohia.....). Our first single, "Camera/All Saints Day", was released in July 2004, and was well recieved in the UK, Europe and the US. John Peel played it and we wept into our Irn Bru. You can find us wandering the streets of Bellshill, Uddingston and Dennistoun.

Our first hi fidelity full length album MEND, is all finished and will see a release over the next few months on Chemikal Underground Records.

Tenesee Kait

Intense and uncompromisingly brutal, yet with the ability to show a side of themselves that is subdued, contemplative and quite beautiful to behold: These startlingly effective loud/soft dynamics have become the lynch-pin of the Tenesee Kait sound, their own individual brand of alternative rock which they continue to showcase to its full effect on their second single, Vaseline Smile. Formed in 1998, Perthshire quartet Tenesee Kait immediately impressed with their first outings (in the form of self financed , The Illustrious Life and Pretty Please) gaining them a large, loyal fan base in Tayside and securing the band gigs across Scotland (taking in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee) and going on to catch the eye of local label, Buzz Records. In 2001, their debut release on the label, Cherries, even managed to impress the notoriously 'hard to please' Radio 1 (seeing airplay on the prestigious Jo Whiley show and Session in Scotland). Follow up was the 2003 release Vaseline Smile. Another 3 track single which also included Halo? and Detroit Girl. All have variations on the theme of 'relationships' yet presented from three unique viewpoints, both lyrically and musically. Support slots followed shortly after, playing dates with Annie Christian, Fifth Amendment, Span, X is Loaded, thisGIRL, InMe and current alt-rock darlings Biffy Clyro, as well as securing them an exclusive showcase at the Northern Exposure music industry convention and Musicworks Glasgow 2004. Having honed their live skills to perfection though, Tenesee Kait returned to the studio and have recorded more brand new tracks for 2005: Weekend Sessions, this time on Local Label BrokenWing Records. With this new material and an even stonger live set Tenesee Kait are here to make an impression. ......................................... "Swirrly, Whirrlly guitars with crashing melody" - Kerrang!

Radio Lucifer

www.radiolucifer.co.uk

www.myspace.com/radiolucifer

RADIO LUCIFER are a band from Aberdeen, Scotland that make hardcore, heavy rock n'roll their raison detre. With clutch of tunes set to stun, RADIO LUCIFER are set to make a big impression with a full on nuclear assault that tips it's targeting systems to The Wildhearts, Motley Crue, Devin Townsend, Black Flag, The Backyard Babies and Sick of It All. The bands history is an illustrious and decadent one - formed after the untimely split of Psycho A Go-Go (Changes One records), front man Jonny decided that the kids needed the exciting, decadent, sleazy kicks of his former group married with the intensity and righteous anger of old-skool hardcore with a peppering of metal. With this in mind he called his brother JIMMY LUCIFER, already an alumnus of a number of hardcore/metal bands, including the mighty We Become Less (Lockjaw Records). Jimmy of course agreed in a second to take on the mantle of guitar player, allowing him to exorcise his love of Motley Crue and Black Flag simultaneously! Other members were quickly auditioned, until the line-up finally settled upon the rock ninjas youre reading about now: ROBB, the bass-man from hell with a throbbing low-end cacophony at his finger-tips and the chiseled charm of a Hollywood movie star; OGGY, a virtual atom bomb behind the kit, and the enigmatic SAINT PETER on guitar; the baby-faced six-string samurai with the hottest licks. Radio Lucifers ascension has been a quick one, already the band have played a number of shows around Scotland with Canadian indie supreme Neil Leyton, a UK, support slots with Viking Skull and The Damned, a tour in September 2004. More trips around the UK are in the works to take Radio Lucifers maniacal message to world at large, a message that appeals to fans of Cheap Trick and Slipknot alike.

Plus the djing stylings of The General.

All the bands played well, even a makeshift Deadloss MF Superstar. But Tenessee Kait were simply awesome.

Photos will be up soon.

Had to leave during Tenessee Kait, but they were sounding ace as always. Radio Lucifer are getting better every time I see them and Deadloss, despite being makeshift, were fantastic. Who needs rehearsals...

rehersals? pah!

we're actually going to rehearse fortnightly in dundee from now on. on thursday evenings. it's madness, i tell you. but imagine! new songs! proper endings! less confusion!

... but cheers to everyone who checked out deadloss last night. i think we had fun, although apparently mart hit the floor pretty hard when he leapt from the stage at the end of 'stars'...

and never again will you be able to watch craig deadloss smoke onstage. maybe his rock powers will now diminish...

Brian looks rather terrifying in that 5th one...

God bless the Moorings and its potent Strongbow. Wunderbar.

It was a good 'un!

Since replacing knights with musicians in the battle between good and evil it was obvious that the dark side had the upper hand in the camouflage stakes...

Yet again someone was taking the piss with their stage time at the Sunday open mic but this time at least the band featured a gormless celebrity!
