King Prawn-Not your Punk "Our drummer introduced us to this band," says Becky. "They mix rock, reggae and funk and have horn section In a symphony orchestra the horn section is the group of musicians who play the horn (sometimes referred to as the French horn).

 so they''re in a pretty similar vein to ourselves."

The Whip Hand - Tower "They used to be known as Ji but they''ve been going in Liverpool for ages," says Foz. "They have some really heavy songs but this is one of their mellower moments. Their singer/guitarist gave us a copy of their last EP and we''ve had it on constantly ever since."
