Aussie Invasion – Here Come The Drums

The Rogue Traders are set to mount a full scale UKinvasion this summer as they bring their brand of funky electro-pop n rock to our shores following a deal with SonyBMG.
The live band consists of James Ash(Keyboards), Timothy Henwood (Guitars), Cameron McGlinchey (Drums) and Natalie Bassingthwaighte (Lead Vocals). The group's original members (James Ash, Steve Davis) met in London in 1989. Before forming Rogue Traders, Ash and Davis worked together on many projects, most notably as dance act Union State. Davis still contributes to the band and is still an active part of the songwriting process.The Rogue Traders are set to mount a real life Aussie Invasion as they invade the UK this summer with their brand of funky electro-pop, after recently signing a deal with SonyBMG.

They returned in 2005, with their new album Here Come The Drums, along with new band member Neighbours' Natalie Bassingthwaighte. The first single "Voodoo Child", reached number #4 in Australia, and #7 in New Zealand (their biggest hit yet) and made the band a household name. The second single from the album, "Way to Go" reached #7 in Australia, while "Watching You", which was their second single to reach the top 5, peaked at #5 in Australia. Like many other modern music acts, the Rogue Traders use elements of old songs in their music. However, rather than sampling the original 'Pump It Up' by Elvis Costello. "Watching You" also contains re-recorded elements of 'My Sharona' by The Knack.

Future Hit: hitting the G-Spot

After nearly 10 years the wait is finally over!
Ms Gina G is about to make an assualt on the UK charts all over again.

After releasing a collection of tracks last year via her website for her loyal fans, Ms Gardiner has set up her own record label – Stuntgirl music – and is ready to tackle the mainstream once again!

Tonight’s The Night is a fabulous piece of dance-disco tinged pop, and is already on heavy rotation in clubs across the land.
It’s a natural progession from her 96/97 material and is bang up to date.

Hopefully we’ll be hearing Ooh Aah Just A Little Bit more from Ms G in 2006!
