A LITTLE DIDDY ABOUT THE BANDS:

S.K. ROBOT http://www.skrobotrocks.com
http://www.spmmusic.biz/BAND%20MP3S/

S.K. ROBOT are 3 guitars, keyboard, bass and drums barrage, and have proved you can make a more pleasant noise with so much audio stimulation available to them. Most of their songs are pocket Pop gems, very rarely more than 2 minutes long at most.
This 5 piece is a sort of low-key super group consisting of members of such fine Pop units (okay, that's stretching it even further) as: Cinderpop (who are working on a new album), Speed Buggy, the Liars,
Saddlesores.

MARQ DESOUZA http://www.marqdesouza.com/

One of the most critically-acclaimed indie songwriters in Vancouver,
Marq DeSouza is perhaps best known as lead singer/guitarist with the rock band Solarbaby. The group released two wildly diverse albums, "The Power Of Negative Prayer" and "Another Sidewalk's Bloody Dream,"
before finally disbanding in 2002. Both records were nominated for the prestigious Georgia Straight Music Awards, as well as placing high on the national college-radio charts. The band was also taped 'in-session' for CBC radio, appeared on the Much West television
program, and toured the country.

Since he has told us on several occasions he know more than we do, who are we to argue

Part 1: "True Story" Terry David Mulligan once told me to "Shut the fuck up!" even though I wasn't even speaking to him. I didn't even know he was there until he opened his mouth. I think he thought my friend and I were laughing at him but we were watching a soccer match at the time. I didn't say anything back to him and he just walked off. I thin... more info

The Februarys

To be part of a band with its focuses geared more towards the music itself, rather than goals of fame and fortune was a common bond shared between friends Lucas Lawrence, Chad Neufeld and Matthew Gibson. In 2003, the three brought their musical aspirations into fruition by forming The Februarys. Content with writing and playing songs in their basem... more info

windows78 (Space Rock)

In came a new kind of sound. A new style that is neither totally new nor super stylish, but a fresh and listenable sound nonetheless. Perhaps a soundscape for the robots on Mars. Perhaps a hallucinatory trip through the phones. Perhaps four fellas and four middle names all the same. Retro electronica and laptop beats. Guitars that swoon, sweep and ... more info
