Action Directe released 5 independent
albums between 2000 and 2011, performing at the Whitby Gothic
Weekend and InFest festivals and finding an international cult
following before disbanding in 2012 after their last gig at the
legendary Flock! club night in Leeds. Their 2006 single '60
Million Guns' was listed as one of the Top 30 goth singles of all
time by legendary journalist Mick Mercer.
Rome Burns were one of the most popular and well-respected acts of the UK scene, achieving worldwide distribution for their 3 albums and numerous E.Ps released between 1995 and their last gig in 2012 at the prestigious Slimelight club in London. Their 2005 album 'Non Specific Ghost Stories' being considered a classic of the genre.
Quasimodo made their live debut at The Fenton in Leeds in October 2012 and have since gone from strength to strength, performing with scene luminaries such as The Last Cry, Luxury Stranger and Bad Pollyanna.
In February 2013 they released their debut E.P 'Liberty, Equality, Atrocity' which has been praised for it's dark, punchy sound with This Is Gothic Rock noting They blend darkness and elegance in their music, in the good tradition of The Damned...this is quality stuff, and its so good from the beginning, to the end. They have experience, great ideas, and lots of talent; and thats because this EP is such a good option for Gothic Rock devotees.
