The Feeling - Sewn

The Feeling met at college in London. They answered an ad in the back of a music mag for a covers band to play a season in the French Alps, then spent three months living in a shoebox on the side of a mountain and playing ten two hour shows a week for drunken snowboarders.

They returned to London determined never to play a cover ever again, set up their amps in a garden shed and recorded some of their own songs, one of which was 'Sewn'. Their name came from a neon sign on a bar in Paris they drove past on their way home.

The single is released on Monday - buy it here.

The Feeling are:
Dan Gillespie Sells - vocals & guitar
Richard Jones - bass
Kevin Jeremiah - guitar
Ciaran Jeremiah - keyboards
Paul Stewart - drums

You can download and hear more on the band's MySpace page.

OX - Broken Silver

OX - Blood
OX are from Brighton, UK and are named after vocalist/guitarist Jim Oxborrow who founded the band with drummer Jimi Ashmore.

Their debut 6 tracker Blood was released in January 2005 on independant label Co-Pop. They release this newly reworked mix of Broken Silver on 27th March, featuring new OX bassist Neil Mackenzie and drummer Ashmore on backing vocals.

It will actually be a record - on vinyl. It's a double A side in fact (with Six Nation State - Keep Dancing), with only 1000 7" vinyl copies made.

It's also released digitally a week beforehand but I guess, as you can download it here - through the band's own website I should add, it's a bit pointless.

OX - One Past Five
(you'll need to add .mp3 to the filename)

Download two more OX tracks Kickin' The Kerb and Blood Of The Soul at the band's MySpace page.
