+ UNDERGROUND RAILROAD!
Underground Railroad are set to release their new "STICKS AND STONES" album for One Little indian records UK, in Autumn 2008.
Formed five years ago in Paris, Underground Railroad released their debut album ‘Twisted Trees’ on One Little Indian in the summer of last year – a ferocious squall of a record crystallising the band’s love for post-punk and New York’s No Wave scene, it won them a passionate following through its wholly uncompromising nature.
Drummer Raphael Mura, guitarist Marion Andrau (who both take lead vocal duties) and bassist/backing vocalist JB Ganivet return in the latter half of 2008 with ‘Sticks and Stones’, a new album that smoothes over the jagged edges of their debut, imbuing upon them a strong melodic drive, without losing a trace of the band’s trademark integrity.
A spectacular live show is long part of the band’s appeal, Mura’s presence behind the drum kit magisterial and Andrau’s vocals captivating. Couple this with a strong desire to road-test their new material, and 2008 looks likely to grant Underground Railroad a whole new audience.
and....The ABC Club!
Shoegaze guitars and ethereal vocals are a well proven combination, and The ABC Club don't put a step wrong to disprove this. Having played at Leeds Festival in 2007 the band are racking up performances supporting bands such as iForwardRussia!, Grammatics, Glasvegas and Make Model in cities around their native Halifax. The youngsters are months away from being free of educational struggle and a time when The ABC Club will spread their music to the wider world.
