We met behind the bar of a seedy nightclub, serving endless drinks as Motown hits and disco classics stopped our hearts from giving in. Taking our inspiration from the paintings of Henry Darger, the writings of Dorothy Parker and Pablo Neruda, girl groups, playground gangs, paperback romances, tear-jerking pop and the burning ambition to write an album full of the greatest, most thoughtful pop hits that this country has ever seen, we formed a band and the fun began.

Sharleen Spiteri was born November 7, 1967. Her birthplace was suburban Glasgow, but she was raised in the Scottish countryside, in the small town of Balloch, on the banks of the Loch Lomond.
Her surroundings provided her with consistent outdoor adventuring, and the fractured wrist, finger, and four broken noses she suffered throughout her childhood are a testament to her affinity for mountaineering (a pastime she continues to indulge in to this day).

In October of 2002, Nathan and Dean (drummer for the band at the time) completed the li...
Stay At Home Bombs music ranges from snarling, class of 77 hardcore to melodic polished punk-pop. Its as appetizing and familiar as Moms home cooking. Now mix in the secret ingredient of meaningful, politically charged lyrics and youve got a honey-glazed smart bomb for the masses. As befits a band with deep roots in the LA punk scene, the tempos are fast and the attitude is confrontational. Each member contributes song material, further diversifying their sound.

Stealing Stuff For Free is a comedy band that infuses punk, folk, techno and just plain rock-n-roll into lyrics about drinking, killing people and hating everyone. It's all in fun though, poking fun at things that America is known best for. Don't take them too seriously, they don't.
“People have been trashing on pop for a long time,” announces the stylish lynchpin of Orange County’s new wave electro pop outfit STEFY. “This band’s here to bring some respect back.”
STEFY’s debut single ‘Chelsea’ fizzes with electropop brilliance, telling the tale of Stefy Rae’s boyfriend baiting nemesis. Released in the States last year, it set blogs buzzing and put the TRL kids on a path to redial meltdown.

They make up Steps.
Steps first began their chart success in the UK 1997 with the Country And Western Line-Dancing cross-over hit single "5,6,7,8". The track was a huge hit and stayed in the chart for an enormous number of weeks - most probably due to the fact that it was easy to dance to, and easy to sing along to. In 1998 their followup was the equally Pop Sounding "Last Thing On My Mind" which sounded very much like Abba. Of course it was always going t...

By the late 90s a formula had been established for a sassy, glossy, seductive girl band. The music, choreography and the look were shaped by set laws. Then along came a band who blew the formula apart and proved that a fresh attitude, a passion for music and an instinctive grasp of UK street reality could run rings round market researched midriff appeal. They were Sugababes. They still are Sugababes. But this time round the sugar's fermented.

metal-rock- punky band, 3 girls and 1 boy from England .
The Sugarcubes were the biggest group ever to emerge from Iceland, which helps explain their off-kilter sense of melody. Their 1988 debut, Life's Too Good, attracted terrific reviews and became a college radio hit, but they never were able to recapture that sense of excitement. According to group legend, the Sugarcubes formed on June 8, 1986, the day that vocalist Björk (born Björk Gundmundsdottir) gave birth to her son. Prior to that day, the members of the group had been a variety of...
