|subways on radio one

|Pilton Party, Bodixa signing
The first big news that's going on Bandwatch is that three of the 2004 competition bands are playing at the annual Pilton Party in September. This is an event put on by Michael Eavis as a strange sort of thank you to local residents for letting him put lots of bands on earlier in the year. Makes no sense to me but there you go. Anyway this year The Subways
and Death Before Dishonour
are all playing before two headline acts so get yourself there if you're a local.
have recently announced that they've signed a deal with Complete
. This comes on the back of Blackbud signing to Independiente
just a few weeks ago.
The Subways are going to be in the November issue of Vogue and on Zane Lowe
's show soon, but I don't know exactly when, I'll keep you posted.
Add yourself if you want to read about what's happening to Glastonbury Festival Unsigned Bands Competition winners.
Anyone interested in new music in the UK with £5 to spare should shell out for the charity competition cd compiled by Concrete Recordings
The competition is run in four categories covering four of the festival's stages, the New Tent, Acoustic Tent, JazzWorld Stage and Dance Tent. 6 finalists are chosen for each stage and one winner is chosen to play that stage at the festival. This was first run in 2004 and will be run again this year. A lot of other competition bands also get to play other stages at the festival.
These are the bands that made the finals of the 2004 competition, who until the next competition finals are announced are the one's we'll be watching. Make sense? Here they are:Bodixa
Note For a Child
The Bilderberg GroupBlackBud
Cream Tangerine (stepped in)
The loveGods (had to pull out)
The Magenta House
Death Before Dishonour
Winners in bold. I'll update the journal with news when I get it. That's all.
