THE BAND:Film School are a quintet hailing from San Francisco who began life as a group of like-minded musicians writing and producing music by themselves for themselves. Hungry unrestrained guitars and loud driven drumbeats with a sound as brooding, atmospheric and self-contained, as it is explosive and infectious. Together they create a majestically epic, sonic suffused wall-of-sound, laced with such unprecedented fervour and conviction it transcends the early-eighties alternative spirit it sometimes recalls, delivering something unequalled and inimitable. (All from their UK label, Beggars Banquet.)
THE SOUND: Another band that has a great, new and different sound. They bring a air of ambient Interpol, with swilring vocals and guitars as well as solid beats. Moody rock for the soul.
