Siberia

Dave (all instruments) & Matt (voice) are Siberia, a post punk band from Ireland & the UK. Formed in 2016 they have recorded two albums ‘Turning Back Tides’ & ‘The God Complex’ & the critically acclaimed 4 tracker ‘Broken Things’.

The Siberian express has played across mainland Europe & the UK and have been described musically as somewhere between aggression and melancholy – ‘Where the gothic-rock of the nineties merges with the new-wave of the eighties projecting into the present!’ Wow! © Ascension Magazine Italy.

The Rose of Avalanche

More conceptually magnificent than the Ramones, more noisily beauteous than an hour in bed with a young Jane Fonda… Sounds Music Paper 1987

The Rose of Avalanche, formed in Leeds in 1984, came to prominence following heavy airplay of their debut single, the “apocalyptic epic” L.A. Rain, by the BBC disc jockey, John Peel. BBC Sessions with Peel and Janice Long followed and L.A. Rain sat proudly at number 26 in Peel’s 1985 Festive Fifty, above songs by The Cure, The Smiths and The Sisters of Mercy.

The band continued to dominate the indie scene of the period, with follow-up singles, Goddess, Too Many Castles in the Sky, Velveteen and Always There, all topping the indie charts. Successful tours supporting The Mission and support slots with David Bowie followed, but just as the band looked set for mainstream success, their meteoric rise was halted by a series of legal wrangles with their record label, leading to the eventual dissolution of the band.

Magnificently raw, beautiful and loud, The Rose of Avalanche are back to reclaim their rightful place at the top table of alt/goth/rock music.
