THE GHOST OF LEMORA
Formed in London in 2001, The Ghost of Lemora have risen to the top of the pile in UK alternative scene with a heady mix of glam, post-punk and dark rock.
Since their debut album for Resurrection Records, “Reach For The Ground”, in 2004. The band have built a sizeable following with headline slots at Camden Underworld and countless venues across the country. Support slots include The Damned, The Gathering, Clan of Xymox and labelmates Inkubus Sukkubus.
The band have just released an EP of spectacular new songs called Sweet Satan and have added new members Jeff Simon on drums, bass player Colin Ness and the legendary Peter Jennings ex of Cressida on keyboards, giving the band a new dimension and transforming their sound.
NINE DAY DECLINE
Nine Day Decline have a musical pedigree including Altered States, Dead Heaven, Complicity, Christian Death, Counting the Mad, F.O.C., Section 3, and more…. dark emotional post-punk gothness. Turn out the lights!
Nine Day Decline play their smashed-up dark emotional post-punk gothness with a burning passion. The trinity of like-minded souls, sharing common influences such as Joy Division, Killing Joke, The Chameleons, Placebo, Play Dead, The Banshees & Bauhaus, making their music a discordant but atmospheric soundscape into which dark emotional lyrics are woven.
