HOUSE OF JOHN PLAYER (bletchley, uk)
house of john player is the solo YO! wave project from dean spacer. As the years have passed, house of john player has shifted through different styles and set ups from wierd folky-pop sets, noisy disgruntled keyboards to loopy pop-tastic jams with slices of face-cringing high ends.



PET CAT (reading, uk)
formed from the remnants of, possibly, our favourite ever reading band HUNTING THE SHY, PET CAT started life as a solo output for aliís fragile song-writing. with the addition of former stalker-of-the-meek will on bass and liam on drums (both of ddd!? house band and readingís "most lethal rhythm section", TODDLERS) PET CAT became a formidable live unit and released the classic 'wires' cassette back in 2012; a spell-binding mix of reverb drenched dream-pop-heaviosity and delicate song craft.

will was replaced by phil whose adroit playing not only complements the existing songs but fleshes out new material that continues to highlight the individual voice and talents of this skilful trio.




WILD ISLAND (oxford, uk)
formerly WILD SWIMMERS. the next phase. the songs of mark knight played by him or him and others. quiet and loud indie rock music inspired by robert pollard, lou barlow, folk music, books, friends, other things.
