Alternative rock band from Dublin who lace their dark and gritty sound with punk-infused undertones

Vernons Future
Vernons Future
Vernons Future are an indie band from Oxford and London with their own distinctive twist on the poppier end of the indie spectrum.

VF were born as The Vernons in Liverpool back in the 80’s and played hundreds of gigs leading up to the release of album Smithdown Road on Probe Plus at the start of 1990.

After an almost imperceptible pause of around 25 years(!), with band members having spread across the world, VF were rebooted. Simon the singer had moved back to the UK and linked up again with Andy, Jon and Tom (guitar, keys and drums - all based in north London now) and Hoop (Simon H) on bass.

Indie survivors indeed

Calebo
Calebo
Calebo is a 4-piece indie rock band hailing from London, UK.

Singer-songwriter Dan Caleb, guitarist Georgia Maria, bassist Rob Ouseley and drummer Roy Lubugumu met on the famous London open-mic circuit in 2017.

Dan Caleb’s songwriting harks back to early 90s Seattle, evoking the spirit of bands like Pearl Jam and Nirvana, via the melodic and lyrical sensibilities of introspective songwriters such as Elliott Smith and Sufjan Stevens.

Georgia Maria’s inspired guitar playing conjures the virtuosity of the likes of John Frusciante and Joe Bonamassa. The rhythm section of bassist Rob Ouseley and drummer Roy Lubugumu provide the driving backbone to Calebo’s energetic and infectious songs.

Calebo are renowned for their frenetic live performances, having played sell-out shows at venues across London. The band has worked with engineers Andy Baldwin (Blur, Faith No More) and Mike Hillier (Django Django) and are currently working on recording new music.
