Hailing from the City of Angels on America's West Coast, THE MAE SHI have experienced some seriously fun times over the years, spreading their righteous gospel on the genius of their band – a truly special musical beast. Taking the DIY tack to a new level, The Mae Shi have been together since 2002 and have self-released various recordings over the years in America only. For those who need a brief catch up, here's a little of what you've missed out on:.four records and 250 shows of busted electronics, spazzier-than-fuck drums, crazy-ass boogie guitar, distorted caveman bass and throat-destroying vocals, seeing the band playing in 100 different basements and garages to 100s of different kids.

DANANANANAYKROYD deal in all-or-nothing scrapey guitar rock. It's utterly delirious, insane fun with subtle touches in each corner to elevate these already-brilliant songs to a territory clearly marked 'genius'.

Now entering its fourth year the WHITE HEAT  empire continues to expand it's borders and make waves in the industry.
Starting in August 2003, White Heat began at the (now sadly redeveloped into offices) Infinity club. In the beginning it was just DJ's playing obscure indie records with some cool 80's dance thrown in. White Heat obviously struck a chord though as within months they had a rabid following. Two months on and the owners of the club offer to let them book the bands. The first night Bloc Party took the stage to a room of about 150 kids going crazy and from there it all kicked off.
