Influences: The Fall, Explosions In The Sky, Joni Mitchell, Lauryn Hill, cups of tea and anything that I just so happen to see or hear.

About Rebecca Gower: The band met each other at birth and have been inseparable ever since. Though they often try to use cunning disguises, such as wigs, to assume other identities there's no escaping who they really are - and that is one.

William Stopha
Will Stopha - Spoken word artist

http://www.myspace.com/williamstopha

Good day to you... I communicate. I tell stories and poems. I listen and chat and learn. I love London. Forget 'rhyme and reason' - I'll just take rhyme... and a big beat (and some electro beeps, pops and whizzes).

Stopha has addressed topics as varied as our increasingly unstable future (a homage to Science Fiction), the whale that got lost in the Thames, the suburban prejudice against people who wear hooded jumpers and our irrational need for superheroes. He has performed in various venues including 'The Big Dress' fairtrade festival, the 'Galactic Fantastic' carnival, Synergy at the SE1 club and The Glass Onion Music and Arts Centre. He also enjoyed a great run of shows at the Etcetera Theatre as part of the 'Camden Fringe' festival - The 'War on Worry' was an hour show with stand up comic friend Gareth Richards (video clips can be seen at www.WilliamStopha.com). Stopha also residents at 'theUpperRoom' - A monthly night of jazz, hiphop and spoken word @ 'Liberties Bar' in Camden Town, London.

Pip and the Polar Bears

www.myspace.com/pipandthepolarbears

Brimming with percussive rhythms, bouncy melodies and playful protest narratives, Pip and the Polar Bears overflow with colourful mischief. Based in Peckham, South East London, Pip has played at various UK festivals, including Sunrise and Bristol festival, as well as eclectic venues across London, such as the Brixton ‘Ritzy’, Bethnal Green’s ‘Rich Mix’ and Brick Lane’s ‘Rag Factory’. Think Rodrigo and Gabriella’s percussive punch, Duke Special’s buoyant harmonies and the lyrical zest of Ani Di Franco. This is kooky folk with a political edge.
