VetoesVetoes

London based four-piece Vetoes like to make loud noises with guitars and things you hit. They also like tea, nature documentaries and a nice Sunday morning in with the cryptic crossword.

Current / forthcoming releases
We are about to release our debut EP “Ritalin/Ritalout” digitally through indie label SpaceRay. The EP is going out on 11th April and will be available from all good online stores
As a preview, we are giving away a free download of our track “On The Waterfront” (radio edit – as attached), which is available from our Believe Digital page: http://vetoes.believeband.com

Who are your influences?
All sorts. As a taster, bands that we are really into include the likes of Radiohead, Foals and Wild Beasts for great melodies, hooks and clever guitar arrangements, Future of the Left, Biffy and Johnny Foreigner for their balls out punk energy and Battles and Three Trapped Tigers for making math cool.

Interesting Fact?
The 1000th colour released by Crayola was periwinkle blue.

Plans for the rest of 2011?
Writing and gigging. Gigging and writing. We are constantly trying to better our repertoire and throw in new material to sets; we want to keep our shows fresh and exciting whether you’ve never seen us before or been to every gig. It’s musical ADHD, in a good way. We play regularly in London and Reading – check our myspace, facebook etc. for gig details.

The Greeting CommitteeThe Greeting Committee

They produce a gargantuan blast of noise, a concoction of sounds that manages to be both affecting and tooth-tremblingly huge. JK, Drowned In Sound.

Current / forthcoming releases
We’ll be releasing a limited edition EP in the summer on vinyl and download. It’s our first physical offering to world so go buy the fucker.

Who are your influences?
We love The Blues, we love The Beatles, we love the Floyd and anything 60s. You could say we’re mildly obsessed with that era. The clothes, the music, the style. We don’t cover our amps with 60s dust or sleep with Vespas though. That would be a bit silly wouldn’t it.

Interesting Fact?
Our keys and samples man has nipples made from wood. Also, clocks,phones, watches and/or any form of time measurement is banned from our studio. It means our friends, family and girlfriends hate us, which is good because we then have more time to record.

Plans for the rest of 2011?
We tend to do things in stages. We’re in the midst of an aggressive
recording bout at the mo so we have lots of songs for folk to listen
to then we’re looking forward a live summer. We’re hoping to play some
festivals and think about an album later in the year. We don’t fancy
any singles at the moment. I’m not sure we like them anymore. If you
live in the North East we’ve got some choice dates coming up soon.
Would be lovely to see you.

Grace PetrieGrace Petrie

Grace Petrie comes from Leicester in the East Midlands, but can often be found further afield, particularly, recently, around the Nether Edge area of Sheffield. She writes indie folk rock songs (a couple with an acoustic punk twist), plays the guitar and sings with a voice that has been described by listeners as similar to Laura Marling, Kate Nash and nothing you’ve ever heard before.

In 2010, folk legend (and Grace’s personal hero) Billy Bragg heard her music and invited her to play at Glastonbury on the Leftfield stage, sharing a stage with Bragg and Frank Turner. At Leftfield she went down a storm and, in Bragg’s own words, “stole the [email protected]!#ing show, sister!”, leading to more shows on the same stage as the likes of Bragg and Emmy the Great.

Current / forthcoming releases
The buzz of excitement around her music has inspired her to write, record and release a third album, Tell Me A Story, which roused national interest in the run up to its release on December 10th, 2010.

Who are your influences?
Billy Bragg, Johnny Flynn, Kate Nash, Laura Marling, The Clash and many more.

Interesting Fact?
In 2006 Grace was on The Weakest Link, and got voted off in the second round. She maintains she was the victim of a conspiracy.

Plans for the rest of 2011?
This summer she is featuring at Glastonbury (Leftfield stage), Off the Tracks Festival(Castle Donnington), White Noise Festival (Leicester) and playing the main stage at Greenbelt 2011 (Cheltenham). More festival performances are in negotiation.

Twenty One year old acoustic singer-songwriter Laurie Cameron is currently finishing her final months as a University student before turning to music full time.

Laurie is currently hard at work on her debut full length record and is due to return to the studio in late 2011.
