Fangs

The 3 members of Fangs first met whilst breakdancing ironically in the basement of a club that they heard Ian Curtis had once had a pint in. After complimenting each other on their use of eyeshadow, the two male members both attempted to seduce their future lead singer by performing 'the worm'. Once they had been helped off the floor, they conversed in halting tones (reminiscent of that employed by Deborah Harry of Blondie in hit song 'Atomic').

Whitey

There is more than one artist with the name Whitey:
1. A solo project by <a href="http://www.last.fm/music/N.J.+Whitey" class="bbcode_artist">N.J. Whitey</a>;
2. A blues-based-doom band from Boston, Massachusetts. 1. Whitey is an ongoing solo project by N.J. Whitey. He is a hard character to pin down- his genre-twisting songs swing wildly between styles, and his dismissive attitude towards the music industry means there are few shows, and even fewer interviews. He has to date had no major record deal, but has still released over 30 records under a variety of names.

Voltaire Twins

Voltaire Twins - Jaymes and Tegan Voltaire have been making music since before either of them can remember, but it’s only in the last year that they’ve been actively writing together as the Voltaire Twins. Fusing 8-bit electro with nu-rave pop, the Voltaire Twins are an arpeggiated assault on the senses.
The Voltaire Twins are yet to release or even record anything more than a couple of rough bedroom demos, but they’ve already established one hell of a reputation for their energetic, sometimes unpredictable live performances.
