Red Hot Chili Peppers – we all grew up on ‘By the Way’ and ‘Blood Sugar’ and draw a lot of influence from the music and energy of the band.
Radiohead – There is just a never ending depth of inspirational song writing to go from
Arctic Monkeys – They show how a band can reinvent itself time and time again and keep up to date with modern trends while still making great music
Mogwai – These guys are perfect for listening to instrumentally and create really interesting cinematic tracks
Black Keys – Balls to the wall rock and roll, simple and thats why we like it
