Campag Velocet

Profile:
Campag Velocet were an indie-electronic-disco-dream-punk-rock band that took heavy inspiration from, among other things, bicycling and the film / novel "A Clockwork Orange". Formed in the 1990s, the lineup found Pete Voss on vocals, Ian Cater on guitars, keyboards and programming, Barnaby Slater on bass, and Lascelles Gordon on drums, percussion and sampling. The group only ever released two albums, the first being "Bon Chic, Bon Genre", which was released on PIAS Records in 1999 — the album performed incredibly well with extra hype from NME (they called them "The Best New Band In Britain") and the band even landed two slots on "Later: With Jools Holland". The band's second album, "It's Beyond Our Control", released on Pointy Records in 2004, received mixed reviews from critics and also achieved mediocre sales, due to the hiatus and a low-profile record label. The band broke up in 2005.

An underrated gem of a group. Tragic they didn't end up bigger than they were, cannot recommend them enough. Come on Campag Velocet! Just one last album!

A brilliant group. Trashy, sexy, energetic, sonic... At times reminiscent of what Flowered Up or early Charlatans tried into. But as time ploughed ahead, Campags seem to give it the exact essence once ripped off Madchester fame. Their first album is a stunning piece of raw rock with sampling and occasional ambience of 'To Lose La Trek' or 'Skin So Soft'. Very close to a certain Supergrass and/or Primal Scream - and still make a difference of their own. July 19, 2004 will see their second offer which is well worth a check.
