THE REALISTICS — real people are overated
By mining less-common influences such as the Police and early XTC, The Realistics avoid the pop/punk doldrums with angular guitars, slick stop/start arrangements and cunning melodies.

STELLASTARR* — somewhere across forever EP
stellastarr* are a dream of a band with nearly every element absolutely perfect. stellastarr* are quirkily creative, balancing unpredictably complex song structures with an unerring instinct for pure pop. This is a band with wit, imagination and a knack for hooks — THE NME (April 2003)
THE TWENTY TWOS — EP
Jenny, Terrah, Hannah and Jonny made up the Twenty Twos. An album was recorded for Tiswas Records before being picked up by Epic Records. Though the band toured extensively both the USA and the UK but unfortunately the full album was never released but a four song EP was released on Epic/Tiswas Records.

SKYROCKET — celebrity 7″ single

Their debut Tiswas Records release, the 7” vinyl ‘Celebrity’ was released in 2004.
