Academy Unsigned – Cream Go To University

Afro-head bound, cool indie kids We See Foxes will be the first band to kick off this brand new ‘Academy Unsigned’ night. The Foxes are a band that have been going from strength to strength and building up a hardcore indie-kid fanbase on the way. Reminissent of the velvet underground with upbeat tempo’s and catchy guitar driven hooks. The foxes are cool shakers and even cooler movers. Fronted by whacked out tripping front man ‘Paul Fox’ is reason enough to catch this band now!!

Fresh from their return from The Big Apple, playing prestigious venues such as the famous CBGB’s The Mags are ready to blow our minds with their messed up garage rock. No holds barred performances from this band have been getting them national recognition and have recently had a national record release appearing on a record labeled ‘The ten best bands in the UK’ selected by A and R buffs from EMI and BMG. Big things for this band? Lets see….

There is simply no denying that The Jackals roots are firmly grounded in Liverpool. The spine tingling soulful vocals from frontman ‘Mick o Hare’ make him the whitest black man ever. Tangling up blues and country riffs, soaked of course with the infamous Merseybeat sound. The Jackals are set to be one of the biggest Liverpool bands of next year. With labels sniffing around their every move, this is your chance to catch them now.

Mesemenie are a band that if someone told you they had a 30 man orchestra playing behind them, you would believe it. Mesemenie are simply a band that have the ability to create a massive wall of sound, full of beautifully soaked reverberation containing blissful and harmonic wails. The feedback sound of perfectly layered guitars and atmospheric beauty has become a trademark for Mesemenie. Their moment is now, their sound is forever.

Noel loves them, Chris and Gweneth love them, loads of celeb’s love them, we love them. The Aeroplanes have received a high level of critical acclaim from all corners of the Industry. Beating off the A&R chaps with a big massive traditional Indie Rock stick The Aeroplanes are one of the major success stories of the Liverpool music scene of 2004. The Aeroplanes could take off in 2005 (sorry), and represent the Liverpool scene, nationally.
