Post-electro band ERRORS formed in 2004, a union between Simon Ward, Stephen Livingstone and Greg Paterson. On the back of a 3 track demo recorded in Simon’s bedroom the band quickly set about making a name for themselves in their hometown with their unique take on Electro. Errors merged spiky new-wave guitars with deep bass-y Acid sounds with a knack for melody and pop hooks beyond their years. The band were soon taken under the wing of Mogwai who signed them to their Rock Action label alongside the likes of Part Chimp and James Orr Complex.
Errors manage to retain the elements of new-wave and acid-house that marked their early releases and build on it; a merge of angular guitars, spiraling, euphoric synths and informed dance sounds underpinned by truly mesmerising beats and rhythms in expansive, ambitious style.
BLK JKS consist of childhood friends Linda and Mpumi who grew up on the same block in Johannesburg’s East Rand, where they taught themselves guitar. They initially formed the band in 2000; early shows and recordings garnered attention for their stacks of guitar drone and head-nodding beats. After the current line-up took shape with the addition of bassist Molefi and drummer Tshepang, both of Soweto, they embarked on a schedule of heavy touring throughout South Africa that earned them a loyal national following.
Pre-teen sibling duo Ivan (born February 21, 1994) and Ada (born March 4, 1996) both from Brooklyn, New York are TINY MASTERS OF TODAY. Their sell-out shows on their UK tour saw them playing to packed houses and magazines from Newsweek (who called their “brief, bratty” songs “remarkable”) to Artrocker (who put them on the cover and proclaimed them “the future of rock and roll.”) to The Guardian, the NME and a host of others have written about the siblings while none other than David Bowie declared their first single “Genius.”
