HIPPIE OCTOPUS PRESENTS
INSECT GUIDE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yG0dZfzsdSc&feature=relmfu)
Formed in Leeds in late 2005, Insect Guide - Su Sutton and Stan Howells - have been sending ripples through the musical underground ever since thanks to their distinctive brand of DARK, CINEMATIC POP.
After two years of intensive activity Insect Guide's debut album, 6ft in Love, appeared on Leeds' Dead Penny Records in October 2007. The release included a DVD of self-produced videos. Sometimes bizarre and disturbing, sometimes gentle and reflective, the videos complemented the music perfectly; fans of the band's immersive, audio-visual live shows would have expected no less.
An UNCUT magazine 'DEBUT OF THE MONTH', Subba-Cultcha described it as 'a beautiful and idiosyncratic pop album'; Drowned in Sound called it 'AN IRRESISTABLE POP MASTERPIECE... AS DARK AS THE MOST POTENT VELVET UNDERGROUND'. Elsewhere, the album drew favourable comparisons to The Jesus and Mary Chain, Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine.
6ft in Love was followed in January 2008 by a limited EP featuring remixes of two tracks by SONIC BOOM (MGMT/Spacemen 3/Spectrum). The CD quickly sold out.
The first half of 2008 saw the Insects gigging heavily in support of both releases, supporting the likes of Ulrich Schnauss, Pains of Being Pure At Heart and Maps. A mini-tour of the USA in March was followed by appearances in Norway and Poland. Meanwhile, the band's profile in the UK was raised by their cover of Dinosaur Jr.'s 'FREAKSCENE' on RADIO 1's STEVE LAMACQ show and in the pages of the NME ('an amazing cover of Dinosaur Jr.'s finest moment').
"One of the best singles I've heard this year... Dark Days & Nights is the sound of barbed wire delivered with roses" THE GUARDIAN

UTOPIAN LOVE REVIVAL (http://www.facebook.com/UtopianLoveRevivalShow/app_182222305144028?ref=ts)
Officially formed in 2012.
Utopian Love Revival features a core band with revolving guest members, which makes every show a little different.
ULR are all about the songs, about people getting together...
ULR is a loose & laidback movement of free thinking thoughts, sounds, art & creation.
If you combined the sounds of The Doors, Beach Boys, Lou Reed & The Velvet Underground, The Pixies, Primal Scream, Walker Brothers, Holly Golightly, Jesus & Mary Chain, Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The La's, Stone Roses & Neil Young, then you might get a slight idea of what they sound like...
